#SaveShadowhunters Character Appreciation Series: Clary Fray

Shadowhunters Season 3 Part Two is currently set to air in Spring 2019

There are so many different things to love about Shadowhunters. From the relationships to the characters, the show has something for everyone. To help aid the #SaveShadowhunters campaign we’re starting an appreciation series discussing the importance of each character and including tweets from you!

First up is none other than our gracious protagonist, Clary Fray.

Clary’s Importance to Television

Clary Fray is not a girl who’s had it easy. After being whisked away from the only life she’s ever known, she got caught up in a life-threatening battle against demons and was forced to fight for her mother’s life and her own.

Despite having to depend on complete strangers, Clary’s boldness and determination made her a force to be reckoned with. She is a powerful young woman who always stands up for what she believes in even if it’s not the easy thing to do.

She often takes the problems of her friends upon herself and refuses to let anyone she cares about be taken advantage of. Clary shoulders everyone else’s burdens no matter the personal toll. Her friends and family always come before herself.

The thing that a lot of shows don’t understand, is that we don’t always need perfect characters – we need real ones we can relate to. Clary always has good intentions, but as we know from real life, sometimes it’s hard to get those intentions across the right way. She isn’t portrayed as a Mary Sue and she is constantly forced to face the consequences of her actions. Clary has her shortcomings just like we all do, and she acknowledges her mistakes and does her best to learn from them.

Clary’s heart is huge, her will is strong, and she doesn’t back down in the face of fear. No matter what’s happening in the world around her, she continues to hold on to her compassion for others. We need more characters like Clary Fray on television so losing her is just not an option we’re willing to consider.

Clary’s Importance to the Fandom

But enough about our opinion! We took to Twitter to see what makes Clary Fray so important to all of you.

And of course, there’s a lot more love for Clary to go around! Check out the full twitter thread here and keep an eye out for the next installment of our #SaveShadowhunters Character Appreciation Series on my twitter @realrayrays and on our Sci-fi/Fantasy Page!
