The fire-message is one form of communication for Shadowhunters, who used to refrain from the usage of electronic gadgets and phones, and is used primarily when they are in Alicante, as most modern devices are still impossible to use within the city wards.

Description

Fire-messages were developed some time in the 20th century.[1] Before then, the Clave used a phone—the only working telephone in Alicante—in the Consul's office in the Gard that was enchanted by Ragnor Fell.[2]

VF Rune, Fire Message

Fire-message rune.

A fire-message is sent by burning a piece of paper with the message. The Nephilim do this by Marking the piece of paper with the rune for fire with a stele;[3] the message will burn itself up, and the process can be sped up by setting it on fire. The message will then reform wherever the receiver is, assuming something isn't blocking it.[1] It is possibly better to be sent out from a wide, open space.[3][4] A warlock's fire-message is apparently powerful enough to bypass the wards around Alicante.[2] Fire-messages cannot be sent to places like Edom and the Faerie.[1]
