Snippet from City of Heavenly Fire
cassandraclare sent me this scene to read. And I read it. And then I cried. And then I ran back to her begging her to let me draw a part of the scene into a comic and she said yes! So I did.
So I can’t say anything more about the scene but it’s glorious!
Oh, this is fun! So Cassandra Jean has finished the complete Shadowhunter Tarot, so for the next … seventy-something days I’ll be posting a card a day in order, from the first card to the last. Some will be under spoiler cuts; some you’ll have seen before — I’ll explain why each character has the card they have.
This is Brother Zachariah as The Hierophant. The Hierophant is sometimes called the priest, the Shaman, or the Pope. “While the Magician was taking raw power from the Universe and manifesting it on the material plane, the Hierophant channels that power through society (as in the religions of the world).” The Silent Brothers are the studious monks of the Shadowhunter world, so it fit.
Above is the card Cassandra drew when she didn’t know who Brother Zachariah was/had been before he became a Brother. Below is the card she drew afterward! In both images, he holds the Mortal Sword.
Nice! I love stuff that brings the two series together.
‘Would that I had been here,’ he said, his voice unexpectedly gentle, ‘when you were growing up. I would have seen the truth in your face, Jace Lightwood and known who you were.’ ~ Brother Zachariah
