And boys do what pretty girls want. Great-Aunt Marjorie said so. She said if I wasn't such a butterball, I'd be a pretty girl and boys would do what I wanted.

Dru about Marjorie, Lady Midnight

Marjorie was an English Shadowhunter, who lived to be nearly a hundred years old. She was the great-aunt of Julian Blackthorn and his siblings.

Known history

In the summer of 2012 her great-nieces and great-nephews from the Los Angeles Institute paid her a visit for a few weeks; Julian had told his parabatai Emma that they felt obliged to visit her because her old age made her relatives expect her impending death.

Marjorie made the Blackthorn children train outdoors or in the barn all day, except for Tavvy whom she babied, while Tiberius hid away. Marjorie gave Tavvy a copy of the Shadowhunter children's book, A Treasury of Tales for Nephilim.

When Malcolm Fade unexpectedly appeared in her kitchen a day early to pick up and Portal the children back to Los Angeles, Marjorie screamed in surprise.[2]

A few weeks after, Marjorie was visited by the head of the London Institute, Evelyn Highsmith.[3]

A little over a year later, she passed away. In her will, she left her home to an unknown cousin and Blackthorn Hall to Julian—provided he fix it up in five years time or else it would fall back under the Clave's ownership.[1]

Personality and traits

Aunt Marjorie appeared to have had very old-fashioned views about women. She was also quite rude, as she insulted Dru by implying that she was too overweight and that was why boys ignored her.[2]
