[I'M NEW]: Staying Safe in the Shadow World

Being a Shadowhunter involves skill and bravery. It's not easy keeping the Shadow World safe so our warriors must be able to protect themselves (and look great while doing it!) Here's the low down on the essential Shadowhunters tool kit.


1. Shadowhunter Steles

All Shadowhunters use a stele, a small metal stylus-like tool to etch protective Runes on to their skin. The process can be a little painful but the Runes are essential to keeping our heroes safe. Steles are made using adamas, a super strong heavenly metal.

2. Bows And Arrows

Alec Lightwood's weapon of choice is a bow and arrow. Users require precision, a steady hand and a calm mind, making Alec the perfect guy for the job. His patience makes him a particularly fabulous archer. A hot-headed Shadowhunter may not have such a good shot!

3. Whips

Isabelle Lightwood wears a gorgeous bracelet shaped like a serpent which snakes its way up her forearm. This bracelet is both fashionable and functional as it can transform in to a lethal whip.

4. Seraph Blades

Seraph weapons are the primary weapon of Shadowhunters. Like steles, they are made of adamas, and are usually covered in runes for extra power. Smaller seraph daggers are also used.
