VF Rune, Angelic 2

Angelic power rune.

Runes, also known as Marks, are symbols that grant beings various supernatural abilities, with both angelic and demonic runes known to exist. For Shadowhunters, runes grant them certain powers and abilities. Runes are burned into Shadowhunters' skin or relevant objects, such as their weapons and tools, using steles, and are their most common tool in their fight against demons.

Runes can be drawn as a whole while there are runes that can be drawn partially at first and completed when the wearer wishes to activate it. Many runes are temporary and fade with time, often leaving behind a faint scar. Other runes, like the Voyance rune and the ones for parabatai and marriage, are permanent. Though most runes have immense power, there are runes that are purely symbolic, such as the love and mourning runes.

We are all the pieces of what we remember. We hold in ourselves the hopes and fears of those who love us. As long as there is love and memory, there is no true loss.

Did you know...

... that Shadowhunters have faced extinction a number of times, the most notable being through a demonic plague and by Sebastian Morgenstern's plots. In fact, in another dimension, the world has been ravaged by demons after the defeat of Shadowhunters, and in another, Shadowhunters have lost their angelic power.
