Stele (Ste-lay) are the tools used by Shadowhunters to draw runes onto their skin, weapons, and other materials. They are made of adamas, a heavenly material, and crafted by the Iron Sisters. Steles have a sort of aura to them, a ghostly imprint of their owner's personality.
They are described as looking like long, slender twigs. The length and style of a stele depends on the owner's preferences. There are many different models of steles, the appearance evolving depending on the times.
Steles have the power to print runes, which can do anything from giving a Shadowhunter increased vision, strength, or balance, to healing wounds, to creating Portals.
