William Herondale was a Shadowhunter and the older brother of Tobias Herondale.


According to Catarina Loss, William was a Shadowhunter fit to be a Herondale—brave and twice as self-willed as his grandson who later bore his name. His father was a hard man who taught his sons the Law and made sure they followed them without questions, while his mother was a bit of a hysteric.

In 1828, Will's brother Tobias's name was tainted when it was spread and became widely-known that he allegedly abandoned his comrades in battle.

In 1835, William and his wife had a son, Edmund. Soon after, the couple died in battle, leaving Edmund to be raised in the London Institute.
