There are runes for healing, strength, invisibility, increasing speed, and so on. Shadowhunters children bear their first mark when they are twelve. Runes can only be marked to Shadowhunters. Mundanes and demons cannot bear the runes. They can die if they try to use runes on them. Some runes are permanent, some are fading after being used and leaving a silver scarf in the skin. Runes are drawn using a stele.
