Give me a break, Wayland. I'm just trying to do my job.

–Raj to Jace Wayland, Rise Up

Raj is a Shadowhunter at the New York Institute, often seen enforcing the orders of the head of the Institute.

History

Raj was among the Shadowhunters ordered by acting head of the Institute Lydia Branwell to search Clary's room for the Mortal Cup. When Jace Wayland tried to stop him, particularly when he was going through Clary's drawers, Raj explained that he was just doing his job.

Raj and others were then assigned to Meliorn when the Clave, through Lydia, demanded the Seelie's arrest and was among the guards who accompanied Alec Lightwood during Meliorn's transfer to the Silent City. When Isabelle Lightwood and others later intercepted and ambushed them to rescue Meliorn, he was knocked out by Isabelle.[1]

He later briefed Lydia about his vague recollection of the events, telling her that werewolves and vampires were involved, but he was certain that it was a Shadowhunter that got him. When Lydia suspected and blamed Isabelle, Raj pointed out that her relationship with Meliorn is a well-known fact. Lydia then had Raj arrest her. While Isabelle was locked up in a room with Raj keeping watch, he let Alec in to see her.[2]

When Clary arrived at the Institute after being abducted by Valentine's men, Raj tried to stop her; when he was unable to, he called the Institute's new head, Victor Aldertree. Later, Aldertree assigned to the room where the warlock Magnus Bane was treating Alec, under orders to ensure that Alec would not be Portaled to Idris and to escort the warlock out if Alec's condition did not improve despite his efforts. After a while, Raj tried to do so, enraging Magnus, who knocked him out with his magic. Isabelle took advantage of the situation by Marking Raj with the Shapeshifting rune to make him look like Alec while the real Alec has been Portaled to Magnus's apartment. He was later de-glamoured by Aldertree while still out cold on the bed.[3]

When a demon infiltrated the Institute, Raj was among those who was possessed by the demon. As he and Lydia were not on good terms, when they crossed paths next, the demon fed on his anger towards her and attacked her. Alec shot him before he could kill her, and the demon left his body.[4]
