Magnus Bane is easily my favorite character!

He’s Magnus Bane. HE IS AMAZING! Easily my favorite character, Izzy is a close second. Best warlock ever!

The sass, the awesomeness.

2 Alec Lightwood Alec Lightwood

I love Alec so much

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.

3 Jace Herondale

Jace is amazingly cool. reckless, smart & pretty hot. love him so much. For me Jace will always be ma number 1.(I'm only commenting on the book,I haven't watch the film though)The BEST book I've ever read.

Jace has been through so much, and still comes out to be great.

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

Jace Herondale is literal gold

Izzy is so underrated, I mean half of all the people we love would be dead, scrath that ALL OF THEM

Her sass is everything

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

She is so pretty and smart

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.

I don't like him because he is stelling wills lady

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

8 Clary Fray Clary Fray

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.

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

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

Awful protagonist
Mary Sue
Clare develops her horribly
If she can determine someone’s sexuality or recognize her partners heartbeat then how can’t she figure out simon is in love with her?

9 Sebastian Morgenstern

He is (was) an evil psycho but a dam clever one and lets all be honest he made the mortal instruments amazing and was hot as hell and I don't know why I love him as a character so much but I just do.

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 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

12 Jordan Kyle
13 Raphael Santiago Raphael Santiago

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

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

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

14 Jessamine Lovelace

Her flower card is a bay leaf.

"I Change But In Death"

Fitting.

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

I absolutely love her

Stahl! This person isn't from TMI
