Jace Lightwood has had one of the most complicated lives for one so young. Jace is a Shadowhunter living at the New York Institute. He is the adopted son of Maryse and Robert Lightwood.
Jace was born to Stephen and Celine Herondale, after the death of his mother. While still in his mother’s womb, he was given doses of Angel Ithuriel’s blood by Valentine Morgenstern, who, in fact, rescued him from his mother’s dead body. Valentine then faked his death and took off with Jace and his real son Jonathan, raising them separately. Valentine took on the identity of Michael Wayland who was the one who had died in the first place. Jace was, therefore, known as Jace Wayland.


Jace had always been independent and somehow self-possessed, having been taught not to betray himself to emotions as a child.
Jace has a sharp, defensive wit, an acidic temperament, and a very sarcastic attitude when he chooses. Giving the impression of holding most people in disdain, Jace is seen as extremely arrogant, self-centered, and overconfident, believing himself to be "the best Shadowhunter to ever live" and above others. True enough, Jace is superior in battle, something Jace has been training for since he was young and had grown to love over the years. He even exhibits sadistic tendencies, which he got on account of being raised by Valentine.
Despite this, Jace in fact has a strong moral core. He is dutiful and just, willing to make the right decisions, and sacrifices if it comes down to it. Though he can be, at times, vindictive, he is cruel only to protect those he loves.


So begins...

Why were we back here. Clary and Jace had called us to the New York institute have an important talk. They'd invited both Tessa and I to see them at 12 in the afternoon. Its been a while since we have actuall stood on the stepsto this place. Haha last time we did, we didnt have our son Tristan. This was his first ever look at where shadowhunters trained. And by god did he look shocked. It was bigger than it was last time and it had a bit more colour than the gloominess he was used too. Knocking on the door to it only open up by itself. We walked in a headed tothe training roo, where they said they would be. Walking there, we walked past a lot of kids Tristans age.

Finally we got to the trainingroom on the otherside of the institute. We poked our head in and see Jace and Clary sweating and puffed on the floor.
"Jace!. Clary!" Tessa said rushing up to them. I turned around to Tristan. "Do you want to go for a walk?. We might be here for a while and you never know you might make some new friends"I say. With that he leaves and I close the door behind us.

Clary Fairchild

"It's good to see you both again!" Clary said excitedly, hugging Tessa and then Jem.

"Good to see you too Clary, Jace."

"So what brings you here?" Jace questioned, taking a step forward to stand next to Clary.

Tessa and Jem's faces both fell and they exchanged a glance, "You see, we come with both unexpected and unfortunate news." Jem said solemly, "Jia Penhallow, leader of the Clave has fallen terribly ill. The silent brothers have diagnosed it as a poisoning that is, sadly, terminal."


"You mean, she's going to die?" Clary said quietly.

"Unfortunately, yes." Tessa replied gently.

Jace put his arm around Clary's waist. Jia had fought alongside them in the war against Valentine... she was considered a dear friends to everyone at the New York Institute.

"Who will be taking over her position?" Jace asked, his voice a little quieter than usual.

"We don't know." Jem replied, "But we thought that you, of all people - everyone at this Institute - needed to know of Jia's fate."

"Where is she now?" Jace questioned.

Jem spoke again, "In Idris with the most highly trained warlocks and doctors attempting to cure her. She's made no pregress and most likely only has a day r so left to live."

"We came here as soon as we possibly could." Tessa put in, looking apologetic.

"We'll look into this issue as soon as possible. Get as much information as we can." Jace said coldly, "This doesn't seem like an accident."

"Agreed." all three others said unanimously.

"But since you traveled all the way here, please stay a while." Clary answered, "We have plenty of rooms."

"Thankyou," Jem said, "It's much appreciated."
