Top Ten Characters In the Mortal Instruments

The Top Ten

1 Magnus Bane Magnus Bane

I love magnus I always literally dreamed I was a warlock

Glamarous, beautiful, extra, empathetic, beautiful, sassy, magical, the best (with ty and alec and cristina close seconds)

If you don't love him, you do.

Magnus Bane is easily my favorite character!

2 Alec Lightwood Alec Lightwood

Character can most relate to

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

I love Alec so much

He is nice and belongs to magnes

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

4 Will Herondale

He doesn't even go here - mean girls

He's the best. Obviously. There is no other answer.

He is awful at first but I really learned to love him with all of my heart

I love will he is so cute I mean have you seen him

5 Simon Lewis Simon Lewis

yes - HufflepuffGeekGirl

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

Who doesn't love Simon

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

6 Isabelle Lightwood Isabelle Lightwood

Isabelle is my bae. She rocks; she is sassy, she is feminine with being a badass at the same time. She shows that in order to a female to be a strong, you don't have to hate your femininity or generally girly-girly things. I like how she shows her love for the fashion, and displays her that feminine side with embracing it. I like how she fights. She is one of the best female character in the series so far, 304959x better than Clary.

Izzy is the most beautiful woman in the whole world! I love her so much! she is brave, selfless, nice, pretty, and wise. I don't know how she ended up at 6th place, but I love her more than anything. I am so glad my 2 favorite character Isabelle and Simon ended up together.

She's the HBIC. Even if you don't realize/admit it. That's all I have to say.

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

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

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

TMII FANSS! CLACE SHIPPERS YEHHH~ Clary is unique and special. She always tries to be the best version of herself

9 Sebastian Morgenstern

A very misunderstood character who could've been good if Valentine didn't turn him into a monster.
I really cried when Clary killed him

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

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


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"

I absolutely love her
