In Clockwork Princess, Tessa and her companions travel all over the world as they race to stop the clockwork army before it's too late. As Jem's health worsens alarmingly and his friends search desperately for a cure, can Tessa choose between the two boys she loves — even if it means never...
Theresa "Tessa" Gray: Main character, from New York where she was raised by her aunt along with her older brother. She is a shapeshifting person who doesn't exactly know who or what she really is. She is engaged to Jem Carstairs, yet a piece of her still has some feelings towards Will, Jem's best friend and parabatai.
William "Will" Herondale: Jem's best friend and parabatai. Will recently found out that the curse he tried so desperately to avoid was fake. He is in love with Tessa, his best friend's fiancee, and told her himself. Tessa is constantly torn between him and Jem. Will ran away from home at the age of 12 so his family would not suffer because of his "curse".
James "Jem" Carstairs: Came to the London Institute from China after his parents were murdered by demons. Jem relies on demon drugs to fight back his sickness and although it keeps him alive, it's slowly killing him. It is unknown how long he will live because the drug dealers stated that the drug was becoming harder and harder to get their hands on. Jem is engaged to Tessa Gray. He will always be there for Tessa no matter what and is a man of his word.
Charlotte Branwell: Head of the London Institute. Like a mother to Will and Jem. Married to Henry.
Henry Branwell: An eccentric inventor married to Charlotte. No one in the Clave really takes him seriously because he is a bit off his rocker and his inventions usually fail, although he's goodhearted and loves Charlotte tremendously.
Jessamine "Jessie" Lovelace: A Shadowhunter that would like nothing more than to be a normal human girl, or a mundane. She despises the Shadowhunter lifestyle and spends most of her time being snobbish and buying beautiful dresses. She married Tessa's "brother" Nate after two or three meetings with him, convinced that they were in love with each other. Eventually she got caught by Tessa and Sophie for betraying the Institute and now resides in a cell in the City of Bones, Heartbroken over her loss of Nate.
Sophia "Sophie" Collins: A servant in the London Institute. Sophie has a long scar running down her face inflicted by a previous employer. She is very fond of Charlotte, and has a soft spot for Jem. She thinks nothing good of Will and is friends with Tessa. Has a bit of a romance with Gideon Lightwood, although she never calls him by anything other than "Mr. Lightwood."
Cecily Herondale: Will's younger sister, residing at the Institute. She wants to become a Shadowhunter and practices very hard to be one.
“You know that feeling, when you are reading a book, and you know it's going to be a tragedy; you can feel the cold and darkness coming, see the net drawing close around the characters who live and breathe on the pages. But you are tied to the story as if being dragged behind a carriage, and you cannot let go or turn the course aside.”
“And now I need you to do for me what I cannot do for myself. For you to be my eyes when I do not have them. For you to be my hands when I cannot use my own. For you to be my heart when mine is done beating.””
“I think when we make choices - for each choice is individual of the choice we have made before - we must examine not only our reasons for making them but what result they will have, and whether good people will hurt by our decisions.”
“It is not beyond the realm of understanding. And yetnothing excuses the result. I think when we make choices—for each choice is individual of the choices wehave made before—we must examine not only our reasons for making them but what result they will have,and whether good people will be hurt by our decisions.”
