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.
