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.

|“||They say you cannot love two people equally at once. And perhaps for others that is so. But you and Will—you are not like two ordinary people, two people who might have been jealous of each other, or who would have imagined my love for one of them diminished by my love of the other. You merged your souls when you were both children. I could not have loved Will so much if I had not loved you as well. And I could not love you as I do if I had not loved Will as I did.||”|
