The Dark Artifices; An Early Character Grid
In anticipation (very early anticipation) for Cassandra Clare’s future novels I couldn’t help but begin to put some ideas together about the new Shadowhunters. We know names and we know sparing descriptions but I wanted to show some guessed ages and personalities through a character grid.

After hearing such a deal about Nephilim, and Downworld, and faeries and vampires and demons, the prospect of dinner was almost shockingly in its ordinariness.
Tessa’s thoughts, CA P. 63
Shadowhunters and Downworlders are not enemies. Our accord may be an uneasy one, but it is my belief that Downworlders are to be trusted – that, indeed, they hold the key to our eventual success against the demon realms.
Charlotte, CA P. 61
She ought to have been very pretty – her eyes were a luminous dark hazel, her skin smooth, her lips soft and delicately shaped – but a thick, silvery ridged scar slashed from the left corner of her mouth to her temple, pulling her face sideways and distorting her features into a twisted mask.
Tessa’s first impression of Sophie, CA P. 61
YOU are a Downworlder,” Charlotte said. “Brother Enoch confirmed it. We simply don’t know of what sort. You see, the kind of magic you can do – your ability – it isn’t something an ordinary human being could do. Neither is it something one of us, a Shadowhunter, could do.
Charlotte to Tessa, CA P. 60
Downworld? Is that a place?”
“A Downworlder is a being – a person – who is part supernatural in origin. Vampires, werewolves, faeries, warlocks – they are all Downworlders.
Tessa & Charlotte, CA P. 60
As it is the job of the human police to protect the citizenry of this city from one another, it is our job to protect them from demons and other supernatural dangers. When there are crimes that affect the Shadow World, when the Law of our world is broken, we must investigate. We are bound by the Law, in fact, to make inquiries even into the RUMOR of Covenant Law being contravened.
Charlotte, CA P. 59
