“You know a patrol found the dead body of a werewolf child on the outskirts of
Brocelind? Drained of blood. It looks like Valentine’s completed the Ritual here in Idris.”
— City of Glass by Cassandra Clare
Chapter Four: Daylighter
So before I begin, I would like for you guys to note that this is an overlap post. This post really does overlap with last post. So you might have seen this bit of the passage before. Anyway, now that I got that out of the way. This passage right here continues to drive home my point that The Clave are all incompetent fools. Valentine has been out and about for two books, and the Clave was aware that Valentine was alive for a whole book. Yet they are now just doing something?
What the fuck were they doing? Just twiddling their thumbs and praying that if they pretend Valentine was alive that he would go away? They were now just tightening up security. And speaking of their borders, did they even try to notify the Downworlders on the border that Valentine was near or around Idris?
I think it’s safe to assume due to their idiocy and prejudice that they didn’t. Again, at this point, I see the Clave but Shadowhunters period to be a ridiculous shame at best.
