SPOILER WARNING: Plot details follow. Caution is advised!

Lissa Wrayburn was a Shadowhunter and the mother of Diana Wrayburn.


At some point in her life, Lissa married Aaron Wrayburn and had two children with him: Aria and David. When Lissa found out that David was actually a woman, she allowed her to be herself at home, but she and her husband asked that she "be David" in public to stay below the radar of the Clave.

When David was injured and Aria killed in Thailand during their travel year, Lissa and her husband falsely reported to the Clave that David had died instead so that she could live as a woman, with the world thinking her dead.

David, now Diana, spent three years living in Thailand and transitioning. During this time, Lissa and Aaron often suggested clandestine visits to Bangkok for their daughter, which she refused as she didn't want to get them into trouble. Lissa and her husband were later killed in a demon attack.


Lissa was a caring and accepting person.
