Alec Lightwood

Magnus Bane: When I was tortured in Valentine's body, that agony rune made me relive my worst memory. And now... I can't get it out of my head. Every time I close my eyes...

Alec Lightwood: Hey... What is it?

Magnus Bane: Remember I told you how I found my mother dead by her own hand? My stepfather found me shortly after. He screamed at me. He called me an abomination.

Alec Lightwood: What?

Magnus Bane: He was right. He blamed me for her suicide. He said that she hated herself for giving birth to a monster. So I lashed out. With all the magic I had. I burned him, Alexander. Right where he stood. I murdered my stepfather.

Alec Lightwood: You were just a boy. You weren't in control of your powers.

Magnus Bane: Yes, actually, I was.


Alec Lightwood: This is like the fourth morning in a row that I've woken up to an empty bed. Is there something bothering you?

Magnus Bane: Nothing is bothering me. I've even gotten used to your adorable little snores.


Alec Lightwood: I requested an audience with her to discuss Kaelie's crimes. But she said she'll only meet with Valentine's experiments.

Clary Fray: Wow. Charming nickname.


Jace Herondale: You're taking over. You, Alec Lightwood, are now the Head of the New York Institute.

Alec Lightwood: Can you do that?

Jace Herondale: Yeah. I mean, like you said, being a Herondale comes with certain perks. Naming a successor is one of them. You were right. Downworlders and Shadowhunters, we're all a mix of human, angel and demon. If we let the Clave forget that... we deserve a revolt. I'll always be a soldier. But you're a leader, Alec.


Jace Herondale: It should've been you. I told her that.

Alec Lightwood: The Clave was never going to hand it to me. I'm dating a guy who's a Downworlder.

Jace Herondale: Look Alec, I didn't want this, I swear.

Alec Lightwood: You're a Herondale. Get used to the perks.


Alec Lightwood: Clary’s not your sister?

Jace Wayland: No, she never was.

Alec Lightwood: What are you gonna do?

Jace Wayland: I’m gonna tell her.


Alec Lightwood (to Clary): You did this. You activated the sword?

Clary Fray: No.

Jace Wayland: I did it. I thought I was destroying it, Alec, but…

Alec Lightwood: Where’s Magnus? He wasn’t here, was he?

Jace Wayland: I… I don’t know.

Clary Fray: We portaled in upstairs. We split up.

Alec Lightwood: Oh, God.


Victor Aldertree: I discovered Eva hiding in the basement. She was in shock, driven mad by grief. She couldn’t control herself, so she transformed. And attacked me. She would have killed me if I hadn’t used my seraph blade. Eva died in my arms.

Alec Lightwood: You killed her?

Victor Aldertree: I had no choice. Eva couldn’t control herself. That was her nature. Her wolf nature. That’s when I realized a Shadowhunter could never be with a Downworlder, no matter how strong our feelings might be.


Alec Lightwood: Supplying yin fen to a subordinate… An ex-field medic should know better.

Victor Aldertree: And you expect anyone to actually believe this ridiculous accusation?

Alec Lightwood: Who knows? Idris loves gossip. And you’re one Clave investigation away from treating frostbite on Wrangel Island. From now on, I’m calling the shots. Don’t ever threaten my family again.


Alec Lightwood: How would you feel about throwing a party?

Magnus Bane: Have you met me?

Alec Lightwood: It is for Max’s Rune Ceremony.

Magnus Bane: I think I’ll pass.
