Max Lightwood, Max is the little brother in the Lightwood family. He is interested in reading [manga] and loves comics. He always felt left out of the group, because he was only nine years old and unable to fight like his Shadowhunter brothers and sister. He idolizes Jace, who in turn views him as a very close younger brother. Max is killed by Sebastian in City of Glass, although he makes a quick return in City of Fallen Angels when he appears to Jace in a dream.
