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

Magnus is love and life!

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

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

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

I just like his story

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

His line of “How are we supposed to trust a gothic wannabe like him? ” was probably the best line in the movie.

I love RIZZY

6 Jace Wayland Jace Wayland

Jace is so cool and amazing and so sexy

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

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

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

7 Clary Fray Clary Fray
8 Maia Roberts
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 Luke Garroway Luke Garroway

Top 5

The Contenders

11 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

12 Camille Belcourt
13 Jem Carstairs
14 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

15 Julian Blackthorn
16 Emma Carstairs
