If you pity those creatures, those faeries, dying inside their cages, think of this: If it were not for the Cold Peace your people insisted on, they would not be here. Look to the blood on your own hands, Shadowhunters.

–Hypatia to Tiberius and Livia Blackthorn - Lord of Shadows

Hypatia Vex is a warlock and the landlord of the London Shadow Market.

Biography

In September 2012 Hypatia confronted Kit Herondale and the Blackthorn twins Ty and Livvy after they entered the Shadow Market looking for help from a warlock.

When Kit told her that he was an emissary of Barnabas Hale Hypatia was skeptical and immediately contacted Barnabas after Kit and the twins followed Shade into his tent. Barnabas then arrived with a pack of werewolves and Hypatia stood by while he called the Shadowhunters out. She seemed surprised when Kit, asked about his mother, stated that he didn't know who she was.

After Barnabas ordered the Shadowhunters killed Hypatia did not join in the fight, and cautioned him against fighting Magnus Bane when he arrived.

The next day Hypatia was annoyed when Kit, Livvy and Ty showed up at Sallows' shop to buy ingredients for Magnus to break Mark and Cristina's binding spell. She agreed to help them only if they paid in gold, rather than mundane money. She also told Ty about an unregulated Portal in Cornwall.[1]

Personality

Hypatia, like Barnabas Hale, is very businesslike and despises Shadowhunters as well as those who work for them. She is not above doing it herself though, as she willingly helps the Blackthorns procure ingredients for a spell, albeit for a large profit.

Physical description

Hypatia has skin as dark as mahogany and bronze hair dressed high on her head, along with pupils in the shape of golden stars. She wears high heels and and a variety of fashionable clothes, including a white pantsuit and a black sheath dress. She is said by Kit Herondale to appear anywhere from eighteen to thirty.
