Sebastian Verlac is an English Shadowhunter from the London Institute. He is a charming, brilliant, and highly-educated Shadowhunter with unrivaled fighting abilities who finds his way to the New York Institute after befriending someone from the city.
Behind the scenes
- This version of Sebastian will only appear on Freeform's Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments. He will be portrayed by recurring guest star Will Tudor.
- He will debut in the eleventh episode—the first episode back after the Season Two break. He will be first introduced in reference to a character already known on the show, and will head to the Institute after befriending one of the main characters.
- Differences from the novel:
- Sebastian Verlac will be from London Institute, while his book counterpart was from Paris.
- The character will have a British accent.
- The writers put their own spin on the character.
- Behind the scenes, the writers refer to him as "Bass".
- It has been implied and theorized that he took the Sword and was the hooded figure seen walking away with it at the end of By the Light of Dawn.
- Sebastian may have a new backstory on the show.
- He may have grown up in Hell, where he was tortured by a demon. His skin was torn off layer by layer, among other terrible things done to him.
- Sebastian's character has been described as "someone who can be compassionate, and who may seem like a decent person on the surface. (...) That kind of dramatic resonance never goes away from a person, no matter how you shellac it."
