James & Lucie

Since your answering some Last Hour questions - can we expect James and Lucie’s parentage and unique powers (? in Lucie’s case) to be a point of prejudice they regularly face in Shadowhunter society? — glamourweaver

Lucie may or may not have powers — she doesn’t know as the books open. It’s something she wonders about.

James does (as we know from Midnight Heir) and does regularly face prejudice regarding it. To the point, in fact, where he had to leave the Shadowhunter Academy in Idris as a kid because he was badly bullied. It is however how he and Matthew became friends, so silver lining to everything I guess!

I love how this art of James and Matthew (above) echoes the art of Will in Jem’s lap (below.) Someone’s always reading, and it’s always a Herondale.

More from Cassandra Jean’s Shadowhunter calendar! Matthew Fairchild and James Herondale. I put them together because they’re parabatai and because we don’t know them that well yet. :) Matthew is April, and James is November and Guy Fawkes Day. Cassandra has captured their differing personalities exceedingly well!

More TLh art by the inimitable Cassandra Jean. If you haven’t read Clockwork Princess, don’t read on! Spoilery! I have also tagged this with cp2spoilers so it shouldn’t show up in your dash.

Two pairs of parabatai — Matthew and James above, and Cordelia and Lucie below. If you want to know about James’ glasses, he only wears them to read. :)
