Maxwell "Max" Lightwood is the youngest child of Maryse and Robert Lightwood and the brother of Alec, Isabelle, and the adoptive brother of Jace Wayland.

History

While studying at the Mumbai Institute, Max claimed to have been hungry and drew the Heat rune, mistaking it for the Nourishment rune—two runes that look nothing alike. His rune started a fire, and Robert promptly arrived to pick him up and bring him back to the New York Institute. Upon arrival, he was welcomed by his older siblings, Alec and Isabelle, and Alec teased him for his mistake. Robert sent him up to his room to look up the Extinguish rune in the Gray Book.

Later, Isabelle and Max reviewed rune flashcards in an office and he once again knowingly mistook the Heat rune for the Nourishment rune. He is then sent out by Maryse so she could speak to Isabelle alone, for which Max complained about being excluded from important conversations.[1]

Having had his stele confiscated for the Mumbai incident, Max sought Alec's help to get it back. Alec told him that he'll find a way to give it back to him only if he behaved during the stay of envoy from the Clave.[2]

Max eventually returned to Idris for his training. While there, he witnessed the regular fights his parents got into. Soon, he passed his trials and was finally a candidate to receive his first rune with a rune ceremony. He and Maryse returned to New York for his ceremonial party, which was to be planned by Alec—as the eldest male in the family in Robert's place, who was preoccupied with business in Idris.

Max had his party, with a Spanish theme, at the apartment of Alec's boyfriend, the High Warlock of Brooklyn, Magnus Bane. While there, Max, having heard his parents discuss Jace as well as Magnus's relationship with Alec, Max asked Magnus to show his warlock mark then asked him about his demon heritage, and he told Jace that he wasn't his brother.

At his Rune Ceremony, Max then bravely bore the pain and received his first rune, the Angelic rune.[3]
