The smallest and arguably cutest of the family, you can't help but fall in love with Max. He has the best qualities of his siblings: Izzy's confidence and Alec's strength. He's definitely mischievous too and is not afraid of speaking his mind. Relive all his best moments below.

We first met Max in S1E6 when he arrived in New York with Robert.

And we instantly fell in love with the adorable little guy.

He was in trouble for "accidentally" starting a fire in the Mumbai Institute!

Apparently he got the Nourishment Rune confused with the Heat Rune...

His antics made Alec smile like this:

Which made our hearts melt. Thank you, Max.

Remember when he was practicing Rune flashcards with Izzy?

Max was nailing it although he still seemed confused about the Heat Rune...

Then Max tried to convince Alec to get his Stele back for him.

Alec begged him to stay out of trouble while Lydia was inspecting The Insitute.

Plus he promised to get his Stele back.

Lydia showed up disguised as Valentine.

This seemed like a really harsh move!

And Max didn't even flinch!

He'll be a fearless soldier one day.

Max returned to Idris to continue his training, but now he's back!

His hair is longer, but he's still adorable.

He claims he knocked out two instructors with roundhouse kicks.

He's still a troublemaker.

And he tells Alec that Maryse doesn't approve of his relationship with Magnus.

At his party, he demands to see Magnus's Warlock mark.

He could have at least asked politely.

And for the first time, Max looks a little scared.

Plus he asks Magnus if he's a Demon, which is definitely rude.

He also tells Jace that he's not really part of the family.

What have Robert and Maryse been teaching him?!

But Jace forgives him and is proud to attend the Rune Ceremony.

We're sure Max didn't really mean to say that anyway.

Max delivers his lines perfectly at the ceremony.

Stage fright obviously doesn't bother him at all.

And he doesn't show any sign of pain while getting his first Rune!

He's a Lightwood through and through.
