Genesis 6:4, which states: The Nephilim were on the earth in those days—and also afterward—when the sons of God went in to the daughters of humans, who bore children to them. These were the heroes that were of old, warriors of renown.
Shadowhunters, also known as #Nephilim, are a secretive race of beings who are humans born with angel blood. They have fought demons and have lived alongside Downworlders in the Shadow World for well over a thousand years, creating their own culture and civilization within human society. Their mandate is to keep the peace in the Shadow World and keep it hidden from the mundane world while protecting the inhabitants of both worlds.
Despite their ancestry, Shadowhunters are mortal and therefore vulnerable to old age and death; however, their angelic blood endows them with special abilities that allow them to achieve feats beyond what’s humanly possible through the application of angelic runes. In the Bible, the Nephilim were the offspring of humans and angels A thousand years ago, shortly after 1000 AD, the Earth was invaded by hordes of demons. During the times when the Crusades first began, particularly believed to be some time in the winter months, a crusader named Jonathan called on Raziel. Jonathan begged Raziel to help save humanity. Seeing the honesty and nobility of his wish, the angel obliged and mixed his blood with that of Jonathan in the Mortal Cup, a mixture he let Jonathan drink. Raziel then gave Jonathan the other two Mortal Instruments, the Gray Book, and the fitting name of Shadowhunter as a symbol of his transformation.
Soon, more men and women drank from the cup and became Nephilim warriors themselves. They soon became known as Shadowhunters, after Jonathan, the first of their kind. Their children, and their children’s children, inherited their parents’ angelic blood and became Nephilim themselves.
For some reason, undisclosed at this point, 1234 is a significant date among Shadowhunters: along with the Nephilim motto, the date is inscribed on the base of the statue by the entrance to the Silent City in New York.
A thousand years ago, the Angel Raziel was summoned during a time when the Incursionwas at its peak, when a huge wave of demonscrossed dimensions into the human world. Raziel rose from Lake Lyn and mixed some of his own blood with the blood of Jonathan in a Cup, which became known as the Mortal Cup, and gave it to him to drink, entrusting with him the responsibility of creating more of his kind by letting others drink from it. Along with the Cup, Raziel also gave him the Mortal Sword.
For years, however, the Mortal Mirror was believed to be lost. It was in 2007 when it was revealed, after being deduced by Hodge Starkweather, that it was in fact Lake Lyn in Idris. The same year, the Mortal Instruments were used by Valentine Morgenstern to summon Raziel. Because of this, the Instruments can apparently no longer be used to re-summon him.
Downworlders are supernatural beings and hybrid creatures who inhabit the Shadow World. Downworlder is the widely used term to refer to beings that are said to be part human and part demon, or have a disease of demonic origin. Downworlders are even said to be the demonic counterpart of Shadowhunters, who are part human and part angel. They include werewolves, vampires, warlocks and faeries.
Although demonic in origin and nature, Downworlders possess human souls and are counted as members of the human race by the denizens of Heaven.
Downworlders normally cannot bear runes. However, the Alliance rune created by Clary Fairchild can be applied on them, allowing them to share their abilities with Shadowhunters. Daylighter Simon Lewis was also Marked with the Mark of Cain.
Every fifteen years, the Accords are signed between the Downworlders and the Clave, the governing body of the Nephilim. According to the Accords, as long as the rules stated are not broken, they can live in peace without bother and may even provide each other help when the need ever rises. Eventually, each of the four races were given a seat on the Nephilim Councilin 2007.
TheEnkeli, also known as the Angelic Power , is one of the most powerful Marks given to the #Nephilim by the #AngelRaziel and is among the first ones they receive upon initiation, signifying their angelic bonds. It is often used to imbue weapons with angelic properties, which nullifies a demon’s healing ability, and wipe them clean of any demonic traces, preventing the wounds inflicted on demons with Marked weapons from healing.
And the Lord said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the Lord set a Mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him.FROM THE BIBLE, KING JAMES VERSION GENESIS 4:15, CITY OF ASHES
The Mark of Cain, sometimes referred to as the Mark of the Wanderer, is a protection markmeant to protect the bearer from anyone with the intent to harm him. The Mark is among the ancient, angelic runes that is not in the Gray Book and thus should not be used by Shadowhunters.
