They envy human life, but then again who doesn't?

2. If a mundie is unfortunate enough to cross a demon, they are nothing but prey to them.

I mean, what do you expect when something looks so delicious.

3. Demons can’t be permanently harmed by earthly weapons so if this was your plan, you might need to rethink it.

Yes Clary, we were just as horrified as you!

4. Shadowhunters' weapons are designed for the sole intent of killing demons.

Might we suggest a fabulous little thing called a seraph blade?

5. Engulfed by heavenly fire and infused with angels’ spirits, the seraph blade is lethal to demons.

Poor demons, they always get such a bad wrap! 

6. If you're unfortunate enough to find yourself at the hands of a demon without a trusty seraph blade, try forcing a demon into sunlight.

FYI This has to be actual sunlight. Sadly they won't bat an eyelid if you charge at them with a flash light.  

7. Or why not try some holy water? That'll help you banish most demons!
