Best Shadowhunters Characters

This is just a list where you guys can put your opinions at. I didn't see one of these lists, so I thought 'Why not make one?'

The Top Ten

1 Alec Lightwood Alec Lightwood

Cutest groom #Malec For the ones watched season 3b

Best character EVER

Just the best character

He fights demons, protects his siblings, parabatai, other friends and boy friend, runs the NY institute... All without angelic power.

2 Magnus Bane Magnus Bane

I really love his acting... I enjoy the series especially to watch him

God, Magnus is such an amazing character, he's cool, he's got the looks, and he kinda knows how things work. I loved him in every book.

He always steals the spotlight when he is in a scene, such an amazing character! Love him

Magnus is love and life!

1. Izzy
2. Simon
3. Clary
4. Alec
5. Magnus
6. Clary
7. Raphael
8. Luke

Isabelle is an amazing character, shes strong, independent and Emeraude portrays Isabelle gracefully. Such a queen bee

She’s badass,independent,gorgeous and knows what and how to do something. She’s not stupid or coward like her brother Alec


4 Simon Lewis Simon Lewis

This guy who is so funny and has a great personality is the best. he has always been there for his friends, he was always selfless, smart, funny, and nice. My list goes by, 1-Simon / Isabelle 2-Luke, and 3- Alec

Simon and Alec are tied for #1 in my mind. I love them both

Strong character and just overall such a nice person.. always been my favorite

Sorry, but I really don't like simon - pjo

5 Raphael Santiago Raphael Santiago

I love RIZZY

6 Maia Roberts
7 Clary Fray Clary Fray

Clary fray may have been annoying in the first season but closer to season 3 - 3b she was so badass and she is now my favourite character!

8 Sebastian Morgenstern
9 Valentine Morgenstern Valentine Morgenstern

Valentine isn't my favorite character, but the actor manages to make Valentine evil and deceiving, yet surprisingly likeable in the alternate universe. I love how he's portrayed.

10 Jace Herondale

The Contenders

11 Jace Wayland Jace Wayland

Jace is so cool and amazing and so sexy

Well, honestly there isn't much to say about this guy. I just don't like him! There isn't much development to him and the character isn't that great. Plus Dominic Sherwood doesn't do that great of a job. - Ary33

Amazing character,loyal especially when clary was with simon and he didn't want to ruin their relationship

He's amazing! I think he's a very interesting character.

Top 5

13 Max Lightwood
14 Jocelyn Fray

She has such an intresting backgroung, the best in fact. I love how she is so brave and strong willed and WILL sacrifice herself for a cause she believes in. It's a shame she was killed off, but I think her character developed well through out the course of the show. If they reboot the show I hope she will be revived.

Really good character

15 Will Herondale

Will Herondale is a tortured poor little cinnamon roll and anyone who doesn't think he is the best character deserves to

Who doesn't love Will? WHO?

By far the best shadowhunter to ever live

16 Jem Carstairs
17 Camille Belcourt
18 Julian Blackthorn
19 Emma Carstairs
