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.
Today is Tiberius, who is dear to my heart despite being a studious, lonely, prickly young man who really only gets along with his twin, Livvy. He and Julian have a fraught, complex relationship that’s been a lot of fun to develop. Ty takes the Hermit card, here the Genius, because while brilliant, he is solitary and somewhat divorced from the ordinary world.
You’ll see some of Ty in City of Heavenly Fire.
I spy the Codex in his pile of books there. :)
Hi! I’m a huge fan of your books. Can you say more things about The Dark Artifices (it hasn’t came out yet but I already love it).
That is both extremely flattering and makes me feel like eek! The pressure! Okay, well, here are the twins. Livia and Tiberius — Livvy and Ty as part of Cassandra Jean’s Shadowhunter Tarot.
Almost all the Blackthorns have the same brown hair and blue-green eyes, but Ty doesn’t look like the rest of him. them has black hair and gray eyes. He’s fifteen and skinny and wants to be a detective. Specifically he wants to be Sherlock Holmes, though nobody else in the Shadowhunter world understand why. :) He’s brilliant and odd, and a few minutes younger than Livvy, who believes it’s her job to protect him, and in fact, protect her whole family, since she thinks they’re all a bit on the hapless dreamer/starry-eyed artist side. Livvy’s very practical. :)
