“I got a message from Fell last night,” said Magnus, “asking me to meet him here. I
turned up here—and found it like this. Everything destroyed, and the stench of demons all around.”
“Demons? But demons can’t come into Idris—”
“I didn’t say they have. I’m just telling you what happened.” Magnus spoke without
inɻection. “The place stank of something demonic in origin. Ragnor’s body was on the
ɻoor. He hadn’t been dead when they left him, but he was dead when I arrived.” He turned to her. “Who knew you were looking for him? […]
“Who knew you were looking for him?”
“Madeleine,” Clary whispered. “But she’s dead. Sebastian, Jace, and Simon. The
“Ah,” said Magnus. “If the Lightwoods know, the Clave may well know by now, and
Valentine has spies in the Clave.”

City of Glass by Cassandra Clare
Chapter 7: Where Angels Fear to Tread
First, and foremost I love how Cassandra Clare contintues to prove my points in the actual narrivative. It just makes things so much fucking easier for me, you know? What have been saying since Clary arrived in Idris? There needs to be patrols at the border of Idris and not just Alicente.
There is no country ever who just protecting city and not sending people to patrol the border. This is so stupid and The Clave’s lack of even the basic of foresight or common sense has cause this Yet, in the end, Cassandra Clare is ultimately to blame because this is her dumbing down her plot so she doesn’t have to work on a real plot.
It’s part laziness on Clare’s part, and it’s partly the author not wanting to diverrt any attention from her wank fanasty and every straight guy in the promixity panting after her. It really is just sad and pathetic to read.
Okay, so demons have entered Idris how? They are supposed to have ward, but what Magus is saying is that the Clave sent the demons. Bcause their bias is so fucking illogical and hypocritical. Also, this is why there needs to be patrols. They are no sign of people of patroling over being careful. Also this is the direct result of Clave people being partial and biased and not purging Clave memebers.
