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

Matthew Daddario portrays Alec very well, down to his subtle gestures and emotions. Alec goes through a lot of emotional/character development compared to most other characters, and for the most part of the season, has the voice of reason. Not to also mention Malec.

Alec/Matthew and Malec are the only reasons for watching this show. Good story arc and best character development. He is loving and loyal and trustworthy. Just the best

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

Reading the books right now and any scene Alec is in just makes it a better scene!

2 Magnus Bane

MAGNUS is no doubt my favorite character, EVER. In both the books and the show.
He's kind, wise, witty, generous, powerful, hardworking, beautiful, bold.
He is so utterly selfless.
And is also a child inside, despite his age and experiences.
He can be powerful but can also be vulnerable, he'll kill a dozen demons at once and will also fuss about a stain on his clothes, he'll demand to get his things done but will also sacrifice anything for his loved ones.
All these various aspects in a single person, it's not even too much.
He's my favorite character ever, among all books.
Also Harry Shum Jr did a GREAT job portraying Magnus. From the grace to the looks, the dialogues, actions, the style, everything was perfect!

Magnus is underrated when it comes to my friends' opinion. I would most likely stick with him if I were in the Shadowhunters realm. And the fact that he's a child on the inside makes him very lovable.

I love Magnus very much even more with Malec. His character is just so loveable. He pulls of this wise yet child like vibe and he's one of the reasons why I watch the show. His character is impossible to hate

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.

3 Isabelle Lightwood

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

Honestly she's the most relatable and you just have to love her

So badass and looks good in everything

Izzy is a great shadowhunter and a great sister to alec I love how her and alec disagree on everything except their sibling love for eachother

4 Raphael Santiago

VAMPIRE he is so nice and him and Izzy are cute

He be lookin' fine asf, best vampire in the history of vampires

Raphael is a perfect leader And a loving brother and I loved him and izzy together but it was dangerous for izzy unfortunately

5 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

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

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

Simon, Raphael, Magnus, and Izzy are tied for Number 1

6 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!

She is fantastic, but I do prefer her in the books. Rebellious, beautiful, smart, and strong!

Clary shows they girls can do anything! All girls are smart,beautiful and strong in they’re own way! She’s my favorite character in the books and the T.V. version all the way!

cutie pie, kinda annoying but still love her.

7 Luke Garroway

Luke is the perfect father for Clary. He has always been there for Clary and Simon.

Just a cool guy and a good alpha

Luke should be number 3. How is he this low down in the list. He is the Captain America of the Shadowhunter world!

Gotta love him

8 Jace Herondale

Jace is so hot and to be honest Dom Sherwood did a perfect job. I wouldn’t imagine someone else being in love with Clary.

9 Maia Roberts

Maia is such an underrated character in my opinion

Maïa is so badass. The best female character in the show.

10 Sebastian Morgenstern

Honestly I liked Jonathan moree

The Contenders
11 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.

One of the best villains to ever exist in any drama TV show.

I don't know just kinda like him

12 Jace Wayland

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

Jace is so cool and amazing and so sexy

he's cool, I like him.

Jace is toughhh and I honestly love him

13 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

she's the woman, we love dat mama.

14 Max Lightwood
15 Will Herondale

Who doesn't love Will? WHO?

By far the best Shadowhunter to ever live

16 Jem Carstairs
17 Camille Belcourt
18 Julian Blackthorn

Julian is the strongest avenger, my heart goes out to him.

19 Emma Carstairs
20 Tessa Gray

I think that Tessa Gray is a huge sign of feminism in the Victorian era and throughout the years! She is an amazing heroine, and I adore her character! 10,000 hugs and kisses for Tessa! I love love her! 😍💕💓

21 Henry Branwell

Henry is just so down to earth, gotta love that inventor.

22 Maryse Lightwood
23 Cristina Rosales
24 Hodge Starkweather
25 James Herondale
