YOU’RE WELCOME.

theinfernalsword said: Hi Cassie! First of all, I LOVE your books. They're my favorite books ever, and I can't wait for TDA, TLH, TSA, TBC, ect. I just have one little question. In a recent post you said "more time for more minor characters (like Magnus)." Do you really consider Magnus to be a minor character? Or is that just in the first book? I definitely think of Magnus as a main character. I don't think of Jordan and Maia as main characters. Just curious who you think the main characters of TMI are. Thanks!

I think that Magnus is a minor character in City of Bones, but that his importance grows over the series. The Magnus of CoB is not the Magnus of City of Heavenly Fire. I would say that also applies to other characters. Maia in City of Ashes is a secondary character but she’s a main one in City of Heavenly Fire. She commands her own plotline as the only character narrating from the mundane world and, like Magnus, winds up with a seat on the Council.

Sure. Livvy wants to be parabatai with Ty.

Malcolm is not much like Magnus, really.

Magnus does appear in TDA, though he serves a different function and isn’t dating anyone at the Institute (fortunately for Alec.)

hellomynameiswater said: Hi Cassie I was wondering, 1) Do we find out why the family trees have wrong dates and missing family and 2) Will Jem and Tessa get married and have children?

1) Yes.

2)  Wait and see.

jelo417 said: Hi! Is it still possible for Tessa to bear a child even though she's more than a hundred years old?

Tessa can do a lot of things even though she’s 130 years old (see: After the Bridge.)

Technically, he died of old age.

dont-touch-my-fandom said: Sorry to be such a pest with questions (and full of questions you probably can't answer anyway), but you said earlier that when a Shadowhunter is twelve, they usually go to the Shadowhunter Academy, and that James Herondale did (but was bullied too much). According to the frustrating family tree, Lucie would be twelve in TLH. Is there a reason she isn't? Or is she not YET twelve when the trilogy starts? Thank you! ~Era

Lucie’s age is incorrect in the family tree for Reasons.

It is not. But, surprisingly, it can be microwaved.
