The Penhallow family is an old, wealthy Shadowhunter family.


The Penhallows lived in a large house on Princewater Street in Alicante; aside from this, the family also owns a manor outside the city.

Jia Penhallow, who married into the family through Patrick, used to divide her time between Idris and the Forbidden City, Beijing, like her parents did, before the couple came to run the Beijing Institute themselves.

In 2007, the Lightwoods stayed with the Penhallows in preparation for the signing of the Tenth Accords, before they moved out after the death of the youngest of the family, Max. The Lightwoods had briefly blamed the Penhallows for allowing the impostor Sebastian into their home. The same year, Jia was named Consul.[1]

In 2012, in the aftermath of the Cohort's ultimatum, the Penhallows left Idris and Aline became co-head of the Los Angeles Institute along with her wife, Helen Blackthorn.[2]
