Top Ten Characters In the Mortal Instruments

The Top Ten

1 Magnus Bane Magnus Bane

If you don't think that the sass of Magnus Bane is utter perfection, you're one of the lucky few who hasn't had their heart stolen by him.

Can you simply describe the perfection that is Magnus Bane? If you don't love him, stop lying to yourself.

He's my favorite character, even though I'm only on book five of the Mortal Instruments. - Anonymousxcxc

Ahhh! I love him. He's sarcastic and always there for the other characters (although I think that's only because of Alec). Sassy and utter perfection. You can't not like him, you have to! If you don't like him, you can't enjoy the series.

Also, MALEC for life.

2 Alec Lightwood Alec Lightwood

One of the best characters, he was really cranky and stubborn in the first book but throughout the series evolved into a loyal, caring friend

He is nice and belongs to magnes

Alec knows when I am mad.

I love Alec so much

3 Jace Herondale

I'm not fangirling over him, but he's a cool guy. After I read the first book of this series, I thought his father was Valentine (SPOILERS AHEAD) even though it really isn't. The irony in this is that I actually know a guy named Jace Valentine. - Minecraftcrazy530

Jace is so brave and loyal to Clary and his family (Alec, Isabelle...). He is very underrated for sure - anasmartin

My favorite in the books since I started reading. Will never change

Jace is simply flawless. He's a great boyfriend, a great son, a great fighter, A GREAT HERONDALE. HERONDALES FOR LIFE

5 Simon Lewis Simon Lewis

He is so cute and funny I would love 2 meet him

Adorable little cinnamon roll that is too pure for this world.

Who doesn't love Simon

He ist mz favorite character, though it's really hardo to decide between all those great characters. He is a geek like me. His character development during the book series is just unbeliveable.

6 Clary Fray Clary Fray

I honestly can't stand this character. Anything she does, good or bad, just annoys the hell out of me.

What I truly adore about Clary is her humanity (even though she's Nephillim...). She makes many mistakes and questionable actions but people need to remember that without her there would be no Shadowhunter series. She makes mistakes but she has a good heart and is the bravest soul of them all. Going through hell and back, she still has the beautiful smile on her face in the end. LOVE HER. - anasmartin

Go clary she is so in love with jace

For some reason, there is always that one book series whose sidekicks have larger fanbases than the one protagonist who tends to annoy me in every page.

7 James "Jem" Carstairs

He is so beautiful and wonderful! He has a truly terrible life but he doesn't let that make him bitter. He has the kindest heart he is always trying to share and love with others. He is just so amazing! I LOVE HIM SO MUCH!

Whoever keeps talking about The Infernal Devices stop it.

He is an immortal shadowhunter who got to keep his humanity, how is that not awesome!?

He is so cute he and he belongs with Tessa they are so cute with each other I ship jessa they rock together and jem is so kind and sweet I love will but not with Tessa
Jessa lover

8 Isabelle Lightwood Isabelle Lightwood

Why on earth is Clary higher up on this lost then Izzy?! Like, what? Clary is like Bella form Twilight.

She is amazing and deserves to be A LOT higher on this list - pjo

She is so pretty and smart

9 Sebastian Morgenstern

He is a totally misunderstood character. He did NOT deserve his fate. He just wanted to please his father, who turned away from him. He never got the credit he deserved. He didn't get even a single proper family member! Valentine was a psycho, Jocelyn a baby abandoning monster, and Clary a sister who totally misunderstood her brother and...and...KILLED HIM! Though Jocelyn tries to reason with what she did, I don't see any sense in why she had to abandon Sebastian! He was her SON! Clary didn't even have a shadow of guilt after killing her brother! HOW HEARTLESS! Sebastian was right, Clary did, indeed have a darker side in her. He is the BEST character in the books and the T.V. show as far as I am concerned!

I'm not saying that he's my favorite...but that's exactly what I'm saying. I feel bad for voting for this psycho

*SPOILERS! * He'e a misunderstood, not to mention hot, character. I mean all he wanted to do was to please his dad, but his dad turned away from him. His mother hated him and his sister killed him. Plus his dad basically ruined the innocent, guileless boy who would've been by giving his wife demon blood! Come on people, Sebastian Morgenstern is a misinterpreted, hot and extremely good looking character who died with a good and pure heart.
❤❤❤

10 Tessa Gray

She is brave and awesome

Tessa and will are perfect for each other I knew it from the beging

I love her she is number 1 go Tessa herondale

SHW IS ONLY IN THE LAST BOOK AND IS ONLY EVEN THERE FOR LIKE ONE CHAPTER!

The Contenders

11 Raphael Santiago Raphael Santiago

I love raphael a lot, he's one of my favourite characters - pjo

Weirdly I actually very much appreciate Raphael in both the books and series. - anasmartin

I didn't exactly like him in the books, but he is phenomenal in the T.V. series.

12 Jordan Kyle
13 Luke Gracian

He keeps in touch with Clary after her mom dies and that for me is just awing. He cares for her like he would his own daughter and shows that same love to others like Maya. He is brave, smart and a loyal character who never questions the people he loves and never abandons them - anasmartin

Yaaas he’s so great

14 Gabriel Lightwood
15 Jessamine Lovelace

I feel bad for her I mean she just wants a husband

I absolutely love her

Stahl! This person isn't from TMI

SHE IS A BACK STABBER

16 Valentine Morgenstern Valentine Morgenstern

He is the coolest character in the series

Ew, who would vote for a creep like Valentine. - Anonymousxcxc

17 Maia Roberts
18 Henry Branwell
19 Matthew Fairchild

He is just absolutely amazing, my favourite character and he should be number 1 on this list. Absolutely hilarious he is.
