Herondale family is an old and well-known Shadowhunter family.

Famous Herondales include Will Herondale, once a head of the London Institute, from the 1870s, and more recently, Jace Herondale, the hero of the Mortal and Dark wars and the head of the New York Institute alongside his girlfriend, Clary Fairchild.

For years, it was believed that the line had gone extinct, before Jace's heritage was discovered. A few years later, a lost line of the Herondale family was found in the Shadow Market-raised Kit Herondale, now a Shadowhunter of the L.A. Institute.

The Shadowhunters' Wiki is a free, collaborative encyclopedia-like source of information for The Shadowhunter Chronicles written by Cassandra Clare. There are currently 925 articles on the wiki. It is still a growing wiki and a project that can be considered a work in progress, so we could still use your help in expanding and completing the wiki.

On this site, you can do lots of things. You can read more about it on the wiki's Community Portal! Meanwhile, if you're interested in fanfiction content or sharing yours, feel free to check out our fanon wiki.

Note: The website contains plot details about the series and is meant to be a fan's comprehensive source about the series. Because of this, the wiki also contains spoilers, hence visitors who visit this site should read the contents at their own risk.

We also use several of Cassandra Jean's fanart, most of which are considered official on the wiki and within the fandom.

James had wanted friends, but he had not wanted to be the kind of friend who people settled for, because they could not get any better. Except he was, as he had always secretly feared, tedious and poor company. He did not know why books had not taught him how to talk so other people wanted to listen.

James Herondale, Nothing but Shadows
