Frederick Ashdown was a Shadowhunter in the 1870s. He was a member of the London Enclave.


During an Enclave meeting discussing how to deal with Alexei de Quincey, Frederick scoffed at the idea that de Quincey was building a clockwork army. When they were told of how their plan involved using one of Henry Branwell's unstable inventions, the Phosphor, he was extremely wary and reminded them of the last time they agreed to it. Nonetheless, the raid of the Enclave on de Quincey's manor went forward as planned.[2]
