Let's get to know Michael Wayland and Imogen Herondale a little better!


Michael Wayland (Adam Harrington)

Shadowhunters - Episode 11: The Rule Makers And Breakers Of The Shadow World  - 1001

We first met Michael Wayland in an emotionally charged scene at the end of episode 10. Jace's father turns out to alive! -- and has been locked up in Valentine's lair all this time! Unfortunately, Jace's reunion with his dad is kinda ruined by the Ravener demon poison spreading through Jace's veins. Michael and Clary must get some help before it is too late!

Happy families?

So just as Jace is getting used to his dad being back in his life he gets another shock. Turns out Michael Wayland was hiding a pretty devastating secret!

Guess who?

That sneaky Valentine Morgenstern tricked Clary in to giving him the Mortal Cup by disguising himself as Michael Wayland. It turns out that Valentine was Michael Wayland all along, even in Jace’s childhood – this fake-out runs deeper than this one play for the Cup. In order to protect his own identity after the Uprising, Valentine disguised himself as Michael Wayland and raised Jace with a different face. Luckily our flame-haired heroine thought there was something weird about Michael and handed over a fake instead. Clary one, Valentine zero!

Imogen Herondale, The Inquisitor (Mimi Kuzyk)

Imogen Herondale is the Inquisitor for the Clave. She has the tough job of investigating naughty law-breaking Shadowhunters!

The trial.

The Inquisitor is brought to the New York Institute to judge whether Isabelle Lightwood committed treason by helping Meliorn escape from the City of Bones. Imogen Herondale is one scary lady, you do not want to make her angry!

The law is hard, but it is the law.

Lydia Branwell tries to dismiss Isabelle's case but it isn't that simple. The Inquisitor insists that the Clave needs to have the Mortal Cup in their care. Imogen gives the Shadowhunters 24 hours to return the cup, or Isabelle will be stripped of her runes and banished.

Would you be brave enough to stand up to the Inquisitor? Let us know in the comments.
