–Alec relating his own situation to Jace's, Malec

Alexander "Alec" Lightwood is the brother of Isabelle and Max Lightwood and the parabatai of Jace Herondale. Alec is a responsible leader who cares for the well-being of his people. He has had aspirations to be the head of the New York Institute since childhood, which he now is.


Early life

Alec is the eldest child of Maryse and Robert Lightwood. He is the older brother of Isabelle and Max.

Raised by a distant mother who placed a lot of expectations on her children, Alec grew up with a strong desire to prove himself worthy, to make his parents proud and bring honor to his family, and to follow rules and orders to the letter.[3] As a child, Alec used to sit at his father's desk and write memos in crayon, pretending to be the head of the Institute.[4]

An experience from when he was ten years old stuck with him through adulthood. He trained with another Shadowhunter, Preston, but kept losing at kendo training despite his perfect form. Maryse pointed out that in his attempts to perfect his techniques, he became predictable, and thus needed to step outside of the rules and break form to surprise his opponent. Alec listened and broke the other child's nose. When chided by the boy's mother, he simply took it, knowing it would make his mother proud to see him accept consequences for his actions.[3]

TMI203 Jalec parabatai ritual 02

When they were around eleven years old, Jace Wayland arrived at the Institute and was taken in by his parents after the death of the boy's father. The two almost immediately hit it off, and they soon decided to become parabatai. Before their parabatai ceremony, Alec realized that he had developed romantic feelings for Jace and began to have second thoughts, but he was convinced by Isabelle to go through with the ceremony.[5]

At one point in his life, Alec lied to his sister about being involved with a girl named Jessica Hawkblue.[6]

During the absence of his parents, Alec was often automatically appointed as the acting head of the Institute.

Helping Clary

During a routine demon-hunting mission—one not sanctioned by the Clave, much to Alec's disapproval—the group encountered a girl at the Pandemonium. The girl was later revealed to be a Shadowhunter unaware of the Shadow World. After the girl's mother was kidnapped, Jace rescued her and took her back to the Institute—another decision Alec highly disapproved of. He saw her as a threat and a potential danger, and he thought of her as a bad distraction for Jace.[7] He became even more livid when Clary insisted on taking her mundane best friend with them.

In order to help Clary, they had to help her regain her memory. Their first attempt was by taking her to the Silent Brothers at the City of Bones. Alec grew more impatient with the number of unsanctioned outings and contact with Downworlders they were having. While exiting the City of Bones, Clary's mundane friend was kidnapped by vampires, further frustrating Alec with the situation.[8]

Alec continued to call out Jace for his recent impulsive decisions regarding Clary. He demanded that they contact the Clave for help in rescuing the kidnapped Simon, but was easily swayed when Jace insisted that they could take care of it on their own, though Alec was still skeptical. They ended up having to sneak out of the Institute without weapons and instead gathered them from a cache in a cemetery. When they found that the cache had no bow and arrows, Alec returned to the Institute to get his and was contacted by Izzy, who sent him the location of the entrance into the hotel. Together, they killed some of Camille Belcourt's vampires before regrouping with Jace and Clary and, finally, saving Simon.[9]

TMI104 Summoning02

The group summoning Valak, moments before Alec broke the bond.

Their next attempt to help Clary regain her memory involved reaching out to the High Warlock of Brooklyn, Magnus Bane. The connection between the pair since their first meeting was undeniable, and Alec was both pleased and baffled by the flirtatious comments Magnus kept sending in his direction. Alec pointedly did not respond to any of them, as not only was he still conflicted over his own feelings, particularly over Jace, but he was also not used to the attention and was still convinced that he should remain in the closet. When they summoned the demon Valak and were forced to relinquish a memory of the one they loved most, the memory that was ripped from him was one of Jace. Alec claimed he had been tricked, struggling at the thought of having been outed, and, in a panic, broke from the summoning circle, inadvertently releasing the demon.[10]


After his mother returned from Idris to tell Isabelle and Alec that the unsanctioned missions at the Institute had shamed the Lightwood name, Alec felt that it was partly his fault for allowing Jace to pursue Clary, knowing it would break several rules. Maryse wanted to arrange a wedding with a strong Shadowhunter family to help restore their name, and thought Alec would adapt and do as he was asked. Isabelle was against the idea, and insisted Alec tell their parents he would refuse.[3]

Later, Lydia Branwell arrived at the Institute as the Clave's envoy. Although Alec did not trust her at first he began to understand her better after learning about the circumstances surrounding her late fiancé. Torn between duty to his family and his own budding feelings for Magnus, he told the warlock about his parents' decision to marry him off. Magnus encouraged Alec to do what was in his heart and to be himself. Alec, after running the Institute with Lydia, knew that a marriage between the Lightwood and Branwell names would not only restore faith in his family in the eyes of the Clave—and therefore provide Isabelle and Max a safer future—but it would also allow them both to run the Institute together.

At the same time, Alec discovered that his parents were members of the Circle years before and had kept that information from them. Angry at being lied to and realizing that his family's honor had in fact been tarnished by his parents in the first place, he took matters into his own hands and set off to fix what his parents had broken himself. Alec therefore proposed to Lydia, and she accepted.[11]

TMI112 Kiss01

On the day of his wedding, Alec, despite knowing he had feelings for Magnus, continued with the ceremony, thinking it was the right thing even after a last-minute confrontation between him and Magnus. However, Alec finally acknowledged that marrying Lydia when he would never love her was not the right thing for either of them, and faced his feelings for Magnus by kissing Magnus in front of his family, friends and envoys from the Clave, effectively calling off the wedding.[12]

After the halted ceremony, the Mortal Cup was stolen by Hodge. Alec and Jace teamed up to find him, but was too late as their trainer had already handed the Cup over to Valentine. When they found him, Alec stopped Jace from killing him. While expressing his concern to Luke about Jace's state of mind since his discovery of his parentage, Jace escaped with Hodge, intent on going after Valentine.

Meanwhile, Isabelle and the others made an arrangement with Camille to get the Book of the White to wake Clary's mother. When Alec and Isabelle went to Magnus' loft to meet with the others, they walked in just as Camille kissed Magnus. Camille teased them about Alec's mortality in an evident attempt to drive a wedge between them. After getting the draft of the Writ of Transmutation, Camille led the group to her apartment for the book.

Just as the group found the book, Valentine and his followers arrived, and Alec and the others were quickly surrounded and disarmed. Alec and Isabelle were held by one of Valentine's men as Jace was given an ultimatum from Valentine: fight and watch his friends die, or join him and his friends live. Jace left with Valentine through a Portal, and when Clary rushed after him in hopes of stopping Jace, Alec grabbed her before she could risk killing herself by stepping through a Portal with no idea of its destination.

The group went back to the Institute in preparation to wake Clary's mother. While Alec had previously dismissed Camille's comments about his budding relationship with Magnus, he made it known that the thought stuck with him, bringing up in a conversation with Magnus that he felt that Camille was right and that Magnus would watch those he loved grow old and die.[13]

Hunt for Jace

After Jace left with Valentine, Alec's efforts to look for Valentine and rescue Jace were cut short when Lydia was replaced by Victor Aldertree as the head of the Institute. Not being able to feel him through their parabatai bond further frustrated him, causing Alec to lash out at everyone around him; even those who were only looking out for him, including Magnus. When Maryse insisted that Alec forget about Jace, he accused her of only wanting to protect herself and her deteriorating reputation by giving up on Jace so easily.

Alec apologized to Magnus for the way he'd acted, and the two prepared to locate Jace together. Right before they began, Alec felt Jace, whose return to land made it possible for Alec to feel his presence again. Alec returned to the Institute, and he and Isabelle insisted on going out to find him, but they were blocked by Aldertree and the guards because of their closeness to Jace and the situation. Meanwhile, Jocelyn tracked Jace and was prepared to kill him before Clary intervened and stopped her.[14] Clary approached Alec about her mother almost killing Jace, but he pushed her away because he believed everything that was going on had been her fault. Alec was further infuriated when Aldertree called a kill order on Jace.

TMI202 Alec & adamas 01

When Jocelyn approached the Lightwood siblings with a way of tracking Jace by using an adamas stone, Alec initially refused, not trusting Jocelyn after her attempt on Jace's life. However, his desperation to find Jace eventually convinced him to agree, despite the heavy risk on his life. He was advised to "stay near the surface" and not go to deep, while attempting to track Jace, where it would be near impossible to bring him back. Despite the warning, Alec strained himself; his nose began to bleed, his body seized, he lost consciousness,[15] and he soon fell into a comatose state. Even Magnus's magic was unable to wake him and only served to keep him stable and prevent the weakening Alec from completely slipping away.

Magnus deduced that only Jace could cure Alec, as it seemed part of his soul had gotten lost as he attempted to track him, and his parabatai's return would bring it back. Just in time, Jace had managed to escape Valentine's captivity and contacted them. Because Jace was still a wanted man, they made arrangements to meet at Magnus's loft, but were hindered because of Aldertree's interference. Isabelle then put a shape-shifting rune on Raj to make him look like Alec as a distraction, though this ultimately failed as Aldertree saw right through the trick.

TMI203 Jalec02

Jace surprised to see Alec awake after briefly thinking that he was gone.

Isabelle eventually struck a deal with Aldertree, that should he allow them to try to save Alec, she would deliver Jace to him. The team was successful, and Jace made it to Alec just before Alec completely faded away. Jace's presence brought Alec back, and the pair recited their parabatai oath. Just as Alec was waking, Aldertree and the other Shadowhunters arrived to arrest Jace, leaving a barely recovered Alec confused and upset.[5]


Alec was quick to get back on his feet after Jace's capture. When Luke called their attention for a case of a demon attack they got a call for at the NYPD, Alec was paired with Clary to investigate the immediate area. With a Heat Vision rune, they were able to trace the demon signature back to a mundane, and Alec immediately realized that the mundane had been possessed by a demon.

Isabelle brought the victim's body to the Institute to study, unwittingly giving the demon access to the Institute. The demon possessed Shadowhunters, and eventually possessed Alec, who still held ill feelings toward Jocelyn for her attempt on Jace's life. Alec, in his possessed state, killed Jocelyn, and when he regained consciousness, Alec was horrified and guilt-ridden when he realized what he had done.[16]

Alec went to Magnus to get away from the Institute for a while. He eventually returned and was desperate to make it up to Clary that he agreed to accompany her to the home of the warlock Iris Rouse, whom Clary believed could bring her mother back from the dead. While in the warlock's home, he met Madzie, a young warlock. When a child began crying somewhere in the house, Madzie left and Alec followed. He found Leigh with a newborn warlock and asked about Clary's whereabouts. The woman showed no signs of knowing who Clary was, though she had been the one who greeted them at the door.

With some urging, Leigh told Alec that Iris regularly took her memories, and those of the other women who bore warlock children for her. Increasingly bothered, Alec insisted that she take him to Iris's office, but the two were gone when they came. He searched the house for Iris and, upon finding her, confronted her. Madzie protected Alec, telling her "godmother" to stop, and Iris chose to escape and Portal away with Madzie, but not before reminding Alec that Clary still owed her. Isabelle and Clary arrived, and they found Clary safe and sound. They later attended the Rite of Mourning for the fallen Shadowhunters, including Jocelyn, and Silent Brothers.[17]

Budding relationship

After Alec's cancelled wedding and before the demon attack on the Institute, Magnus and Alec had spoken about going on their first date. A few weeks later, Magnus sent Alec a fire message about an emergency, although revealed to Alec that there was no real emergency, and he simply wanted to see him. He told Alec that they should go on their first date, insisting that making time for things he cares about will remind him of what he was fighting for in times of war and conflict. Alec agreed and the two go to the Hunter's Moon.

TMI206promo Malec04

Their night began smoothly, with Magnus ordering them drinks and the two of them getting competitive playing pool. However, things soon took a turn. Magnus discovered that Alec had never been in a relationship before, which Alec was reluctant to admit as he did not want Magnus to treat him differently due to his lack of experience. Having been in the closet his whole life until recently, Alec firmly believed he could never have what he wanted, until Magnus came along. Alec asked how many people Magnus had been with, and was shocked to hear Magnus had been with 17,000 people. Self-conscious, Alec grew quiet and thoughtful, thinking all the way back to Magnus' loft after their date. Alec expressed doubt about their relationship, wondering if they were too different to really make it work. Just as Alec was beginning to leave, he stopped and reconsidered, deciding that he didn't care about their differences. He kissed Magnus and the two decide they want to put in effort for their relationship to be a good one.[18]

While on a date in Japan and Prague, Alec bought Magnus an omamori, a Japanese amulet said to give luck and protection to the wearer, and gave it to him when they were back in his apartment. As they were about to kiss, the moment was ruined when they hear Jace, who recently moved in with Magnus, upstairs with a seelie named Kaelie. They turn on some music and escape to the balcony, but are interrupted again when Alec is called back to the Institute. When he found Isabelle, Alec asked for advice on how to know when the right time is, referring to having sex with Magnus. He noted that she looked unwell, but she brushed him off. Her advice was that they care for each other, and if it felt right, he should go for it. Alec then returned to Magnus' loft, asking if Jace was there, before grabbing him and kissing him when Magnus answered in the negative. Magnus is amused by Alec's sudden boldness, and Alec clarified that he would like to take the next step in their relationship, meaning the sex step. Magnus revealed that he feared losing Alec if they rush into things, but Alec reassured Magnus and the two kissed again and went into Magnus' bedroom.[6]

Maryse and Max soon returned to the Institute to plan Max's rune ceremony since he was finished his last trial. Robert was unable to attend, which meant that as the oldest male in the family, Alec had to plan the ceremonial party. Alec approached Magnus about it, thinking that if they hosted the party together, it would show his mother that their relationship was not going to go away, and give them an opportunity for Maryse and Magnus to meet properly. During the party, a spell was cast on Alec, Clary, and Jace that played with their fears and insecurities. Alec's guilt over Jocelyn's death still weighed on him, and the spell caused him to hallucinate Clary blaming him for it, voicing what he feared about the incident. It drove him to let himself fall from the roof of Magnus' apartment, however Magnus arrived just in time to stop him.[19]

The Soul-Sword

After Magnus sent Iris to the Clave, and Jace and Clary revealed what Valentine's plan with the Soul-Sword was, Alec showed signs of worrying for Magnus and the other Downworlders that live in New York, taking responsibility for their safety. He was also worrying about Isabelle, and went to Aldertree, confronting him about how she hadn't been acting the same since the mission to the Iron Sisters. Through Magnus, he learned that Isabelle had been seeing Raphael for vampire venom. Out of fear for his sister, Alec got angry at Magnus for not letting him know about the yin fen, although Magnus himself had not known and told him as soon as he did. Alec immediately went to the Dumort to talk to Raphael and began to fight him. Magnus had to stop Alec's fist with his magic to hold him back. He tried to get Isabelle to leave with him, however she refused, and claimed he had not noticed anything was wrong with her in the first place.[20]

TMI209promo Alec & Isabelle 02

When he returned to the Institute, the wards had been breached. As Alec and his team approached the entrance to the Institute, he found Madzie, who had been taken by Valentine and manipulated by him. He approached her carefully, and before using her gills, her warlock mark, to suck the oxygen out of the air and killing the Shadowhunters, she knocked Alec into a nearby elevator and closed the door to keep him safe.

Alec and Aldertree worked together to get to the Institute's roof, where they would be able to manually shut off the Institute's lightning power core. Alec accused Aldertree of not caring if the Downworlders were destroyed. Aldertree told Alec about a werewolf he was in love with when he was back in Idris and how she attacked him out of grief after a demon attack. He was forced to kill her before she could kill him, and believed that because of their demon nature, a Downworlder and a Shadowhunter could never be together. While Aldertree continued to work on the Institute's system, four Circle members arrived. However, Isabelle also arrived and helped them defeat the Circle members.

After the Soul-Sword was activated and killed the werewolves, seelies, and vampires that teamed up in an attack against Valentine, Alec rushed to the location of destruction. Not seeing Magnus among the dead, he searched the entire Institute to find him. It wasn't until morning that he ran outside in a last attempt to find him. He felt a hand on his shoulder and saw that it was Magnus, and embraced him tightly in relief. He confessed to how scared he was not knowing if Magnus was alive, and told him he loves him. When Magnus said he feels the same, they exchanged a kiss.[21]

Repairing Relations

After it was discovered that Jace is a Herondale, the Inquisitor appointed him Head of the Institute. Alec expressed frustration that it was not given to him because he was dating a Downworlder. Jace, not wanting the responsibility, eventually assigned Alec as Head of the Institute, helping him realize a life long dream.

One of Alec's first orders of business was to establish a Cabinet during which Downworlders and Shadowhunters could meet to discuss events and work together against threats like Valentine. He promised them total transparency.

While Alec worked on this Cabinet to rebuild relations between Downworlders and Shadowhunters, his relationship with Magnus was going through some changes. After switching bodies with Valentine due to Azazel's spell and being tortured by the Inquisitor, Magnus began to pull away from Alec. Although Alec realized that Magnus was hiding that he was not doing well after the events, at first, he dismissed advice from Isabelle to talk to Magnus, initially believing that he should have his space.[22]

Eventually, after waking up for the fourth time in a row to an empty bed, Alec insisted to Magnus that whatever it was that was bothering him, Alec was there for him and that he loved him. Magnus opened up to Alec about his past, and Alec assured Magnus that there was nothing ugly about him and held him, causing for Magnus to stop hiding from his pain now that he had admitted it.

Soul-Sword Lie

However, political strain was soon to change that again. After Valentine escaped while Alec was in charge of the Institute and Jace and Clary failed to catch him, the Clave sent an envoy to keep watch. Alec was certain his leadership would be taken away, but it was his father who arrived and told him he would get to keep his place as Head of the Institute due to some information he possessed that allowed him to get the Clave to agree. After Alec heard that Max got in trouble with their father, Alec pushed to know what it was that Robert knew. He learned that the Clave had lied and did not have the Soul-Sword.

Afraid that the news would cause an uprising that would lead to war and many deaths, he kept the information to himself and Clary, Jace and Isabelle, not advising the Cabinet members in spite of having preached total transparency with the Downworlders. When Magnus returned from a meeting with the Seelie Queen and other Downworlder leaders, he boasted that he explained Alec's stance on honesty and that he had vouched for him. Unfortunately, word got around and Magnus confronted Alec about the lie shortly after. Alec tried to explain that he did not want Magnus to be in this difficult position of having to lie to his people and that he was trying to avoid an uprising, but Magnus was hurt that Alec had lied, angry at the Clave's unchanging ways, and scared for the safety of his people. [23]

When Max was found injured in the Institute, Alec put the place on lock-down in order for them to find Jonathan, who had been hiding among them all this time. Worried about his dying little brother, Alec called Magnus who did not answer. He showed up at his loft knowing Magnus was still upset with him. Despite his best efforts, Magnus was, to Alec's dismay, unable to help Max. Once Max was safe, Izzy nudged Alec to go speak to Magnus. Magnus told Alec that as a leader, he had responsibilities, and he could not both have Alec in his life and keep his people safe. Alec grew upset, but Magnus still walked away. [24]

Furthermore, Alec turned to Magnus for help sealing the rift to Edom that Jonathan had opened. Alec was reluctant to do so as Magnus had made it clear he no longer wanted anything to do with him, but did so all the same. They fought alongside each other in spite of the state of their relationship, Alec rushing to Magnus' aid after sealing the rift had drained him of some magic. When Alec collapsed due to the pain of feeling Jace die, Magnus rushed to his side.

Magnus agreed to portal them to Jace's location in order for them to stop Valentine before he rose the angel Raziel. They were too late, but by the time they arrive at the shores of the lake, Jace was fine. Alec expressed confusion about his rune having vanished, but Jace made him look and Alec saw it was right where it should be.

Later that night, Shadowhunters and Downworlders celebrated Valentine's death together at the Hunter's Moon. Alec approached Magnus and asked if they could talk, the two of them exiting the bar to talk in the alley. Alec confessed that since their fights he could not think straight, concluding that he could not live without him, to which Magnus replied that he didn't have to choose between Alec and the Downworld like he thought he did. After their declarations, the two kissed outside the Hunter's Moon in reconciliation before promptly leaving the party.[25]

Reunion With Magnus

Alec returned from Alicante and found Magnus servicing clients again. Magnus confessed that while Alec was away, he was dismissed as the High Warlock of Brooklyn due to his siding with the Seelie Queen during the war. Although Alec expected Magnus to be upset, Magnus told him that he was elated because now he had the time to focus on clients and making their dreams come true.

Begrudgingly accepting that this is how Magnus feels, Alec told him that he was offered a position on the council but that the position resides in Idris. Magnus congratulated him and brushed off Alec's worries of moving to Idris by telling him that he's only a portal away. However, as warlocks are forbidden in Idris, Alec confessed that they wouldn't be able to see each other. Magnus answered by saying that it doesn't matter where Alec was because he would always be there for him.


As the eldest of Lightwood siblings, Alec has a very serious, cautious and by-the-book demeanor, answering to the Clave for reports and missions, following every law and every rule. His strict moral code, for a time, compelled him to follow the law to the letter. He has a habit of being blunt and is extremely distrustful of newcomers, and Simon once referenced that his bedside manner is 'abysmal'.

Despite this, he is loyal to his friends and is fiercely protective of them, going along with his friends' missions to keep them safe even though he disapproves. Alec takes his duty extremely seriously and often steps in front of others to keep them safe, instinctively putting others ahead of himself and taking responsibility for and of others, regardless of whether he finds them agreeable or not.

Alec is gay but was in denial and reluctant to admit this to himself for years due to the pressure on him. Furthermore, his feelings for his parabatai and adoptive brother, Jace, gave him another reason to stay in the closet, as romantic relationships between parabatai are forbidden. This made him a deeply conflicted individual, torn between being himself and not bringing shame to his family. After meeting Magnus, Alec has chosen what would make him happy and is now proudly dating a man, and he has since grown more comfortable with himself.

While Alec can be harsh, he's also a deeply caring and affectionate person who won't hesitate to reach out to his family and be at their side when they need him. He's observant, and will often notice when someone he cares about is going through something, usually expressing concern when he does. Alec has a tendency to take responsibility for things and blame himself, especially in regards to people he loves being hurt or upset, even if he had little to do with the situation in the first place. When something is wrong, there's little he wouldn't do to put things right.

Skills and abilities

  • Nephilim physiology: Being Nephilim, Alec possesses a variety of enhanced physical and mental abilities granted to him by the angel blood of Raziel in his veins and also by the angelic Marks of the Gray Book. This includes enhanced strength, speed, agility, stamina, and coordination, which continue to improve over time and practice.
    • The Sight: As a Shadowhunter, Alec is naturally and easily able to see through most magical illusions and layers of glamour over reality.
    • Runic magic: Due to the angel blood in their veins, all Shadowhunters are able to apply runes on their skin without any real danger. These Marks, in turn, give varied effects that serve to benefit the wearer.
    • Use of heavenly weapons: As a Shadowhunter, Alec is also able to perform tasks unique to their species, such as the ability to use and call on the power of angels for their seraph blades, as well as to handle any heavenly weapons or objects with effect, which would normally not work for other species. In particular, these are tools made of adamas and forged by Iron Sisters.
  • Parabatai bond: Due to his parabatai bond with Jace Herondale, Alec is able to call on more strength in battle and is able to use certain runes or magic exclusive to parabatai. The runes drawn on him by, or shared with, Jace also give a considerably stronger effect.
