Name Decoder - TMI Special Edition

Last week I finished reading the City of Heavenly Fire, the last installment of The Mortal Instruments series and I still can't get over it. It was so angsty and sad and happy at the same time, it was dancing on my nerves all along. I'll never be the same... However, that's not what bugs me the most. It's that the series is over. It's gone and though there will be more (TDA, TWP, TLH) and I cannot wait to read them, it will not be the same and I have a hard time with letting go. (Proves it the few hundred fan-fitions I've read since last week.) Thus right now everything's revolving around TMI and CoHF in particular. And that's how I came up with this special TMI edition of Name Decoder. Some of the names have already been featured in the section, Clary's and Jace's and Raziel's so now I'll be concentrating on the less main characters whose names have not been mentioned yet. Hope you"ll like it!
