The Mortal Instruments boxed set. The Shadowhunters protect the world of mundane people who are also called “mundies” from dark forces from beyond their world. Clare did not originally intend to write city of heavenly fire the mortal instruments 6 pdf series for teens.
When she was approached by a publisher interested in aging up her characters, she ultimately decided that she “wanted to tell a story about characters at that crucial life stage just between adolescence and adulthood, where your choices determine the kind of person you’re going to be rather than reflecting who you already are. Clarissa “Clary” Adele Fray is the sister of Jonathan Morgenstern and daughter of Valentine Morgenstern and Jocelyn Fairchild. To protect Clary, Jocelyn changes her surname to Fray. Clary is described as having long, curly red hair, freckles, and bright green eyes. In the first book, Clary is 15 years old, approaching 16, which is the age of Isabelle Lightwood. Clary is described as being stubborn and often rushes into dangerous situations without considering the consequences.
Her best friend in the series is Simon Lewis. Clary is devastated when she is told that Jace is her brother but later learns that this is untrue. Clary discovers she can read ancient runes that are used by angels, and she can create her own runes, an ability that was caused by the extra angel blood her father, Valentine Morgenstern, administered to her while she was in her mother’s womb. In the first few books, Clary has a tense relationship with the Lightwoods siblings. Alec Lightwood, Jace’s parabatai or best friend, is seemingly jealous of Clary’s relationship with Jace since he thinks she is occupying Jace more than she should, while Izzy Lightwood shows hostility towards Clary at the beginning since she thinks Clary is just a normal human being. He has wavy blond hair and golden eyes, and, like Clary, is a Shadowhunter.
