(Shadow Hunters) Main Page

We welcome you to this team and hope you enjoy your stay with us!!!!!

We thought you'd like to know alittle bit about the legend of Chasseurs d'Ombres (Shadow Hunters),
so we are going to try to provide what we know.
I even learned things I didn't know about Chasseurs d'Ombres
(Shadow Hunters)!


Shadowhunters, also known as Nephilim, are a secretive race of beings who are humans born with angel blood.
They have fought demons and lived alongside Downworlders in the Shadow World for well over a thousand years,
creating their own culture and civilization within human society. Their mandate is to keep the peace in the
Shadow World and keep it hidden from the mundane world while protecting the inhabitants of both worlds.

Despite their ancestry, Shadowhunters are mortal and therefore vulnerable to old age and death; however,
their angelic blood endows them with special abilities that allow them to achieve feats beyond
what's humanly possible through the application of angelic runes.

“ We are sometimes called the Nephilim. In the Bible they were the offspring of humans and angels. ”
–Hodge Starkweather, City of Bones
In the Bible, the Nephilim were the offspring of humans and angels,
although it is unknown if they really existed or not.
In the Shadowhunter's Codex,
the Angel Raziel is said to have named Jonathan and his new breed after the Nephilim of the Bible,
even making references as such, though this too is unknown as no official records
exists of what exactly happened that day.

Raziel with the Mortal Instruments.
“ The legend of the origin of Shadowhunters is that they were created more than a thousand years ago,
when humans were being overrun by demon invasions from the other worlds.
A warlock summoned the Angel Raziel, who mixed some of his own blood with the blood of men in a cup,
and gave it to those men to drink.
Those who drank the Angel's blood became Shadowhunters,
as did their children and their children's children.”
