The Mortal Instruments has finally released the picture you have been waiting for: Magnus Bane!

Magnus is definitely a fan favorite, and he is played by Godfrey Gao. Magnus is the High Warlock of Brooklyn and the product of a powerful demon and human mother. He is described as having jet black hair, yellow-green eyes and is 800 years old. Magnus is one of the few characters that appears in both The Mortal Instruments series and The Infernal Devices series. Magnus plays a vital role in City of Bones because he has knowledge about Clary and what has happened to her. Magnus also stirs the pot when it comes to Alec and his love life.
