Imogen Herondale: You are arrogant. As well as intolerant. Did your father teach you to behave this way?
Jace: Not to him.
Imogen Herondale: Then you're aping him. Valentine was one of the most arrogant and disrespectful men I've ever met. I suppose he brought you up to be just like him.
Jace: Yes, I was trained to be an evil mastermind from a young age. Pulling the wings off flies, poisoning the earth's water supply—I was covering that stuff in kindergarten. I guess we're all just lucky my father faked his own death before he got to the raping and pillaging part of my education, or no one would be safe.
Imogen Herondale: Look at me, boy. You will call me Inquisitor. You will not call me anything else. Do you understand?
Jace: My name is Jace. Not boy. Jace Wayland.
Imogen Herondale: You have no right to the name of Wayland. You are Jonathan Morgenstern. To claim the name of Wayland makes you a liar. Just like your father.
Jace: Actually, I prefer to think that I'm a liar in a way that's uniquely my own.
Imogen Herondale: I see. You are intolerant of authority, just as your father was. Like the angel whose name you both bear. Lucifer was rewarded for his rebellion when God cast him into the pits of hell. If you defy my authority, I can promise that you will envy him his fate.
Imogen Herondale (to Clary): This rune of Angelic Power is well-deserved and long overdue. You are no longer a Shadowhunter in training. You have defeated our greatest enemy. Valentine may have used the Mortal Instruments to raise the Angel Raziel, but you prevented a wish from being granted. Clarissa Fairchild, may your heroism be a shining example to Shadowhunters across the world. Congratulations.
Imogen Herondale: Now I know where that bold defiance of yours comes from. You're just like your father. I... retrieved this from Magnus's apartment. It belongs to you now. You've had a lot taken away from you, Jace. But that's all over now. You come from a line of great and powerful Shadowhunters, from a family that has been revered by generations, and feared... by those who oppose all that is good and just. This ring signifies that. This is your birthright. Now, my boy. You are about to find out what it means to be a Herondale.
