“Black hair and blue eyes are my favorite combination.”
Alexander ‘Alec’ Lightwood was the eldest child bortn to Robert and Maryse Lightwood. Born in Idris, Alec was, along with his parents, exiled from their homeland and was banned from returning unless on official Shadowhunter business. Two years after him, his sister, Isabelle, was born, and his younger brother Max was born when he was nine. When he was eleven years old, Jace Wayland was adopted into their family and Alec had an instant liking for Jace and they eventually became parabatai. It is not believed that Alec knows anything about his father being unfaithful before his mother fell pregnant with Max.
Alec is one of the few gay Shadowhunters. Since normally, homosexual Shadowhunters are shunned out of the Clave, Alec was sceptical about coming out, but he eventually does, letting everyone know of his relationship with Magnus Bane –an 800 year old Warlock- inspiring other closeted Shadowhunters to come out about their sexuality, as well.
