Skills and abilities Edit

  • Nephilim physiology: Being Nephilim, Julian possesses a variety of enhanced physical and mental abilities granted to him by the angel blood of Raziel in his veins and also by the angelic Marks of the Gray Book. He also has the power to perform tasks unique to their species, such as the ability to use and call on the power of angels for their seraph blade. This includes enhanced strength, agility, stamina, and coordination, which only improves over time and practice.
  • Runic magic: Due to the angel blood in their veins, all Shadowhunters are able to apply runes on their skin without any real danger. These Marks, in turn, give varied effects that serve to benefit the wearer.
  • Parabatai bond: Due to his parabatai bond with Aurora Carstairs, Julian is able to call on more strength in battle. The runes drawn on him by Aurora also give a considerably stronger effect.
  • Expert hand-to-hand combatant: Julian is highly skilled in armed and unarmed combat.
  • Marksmanship: Julian has mastered the use of his crossbow and aims with complete accuracy.
  • Use of heavenly weapons: As a Nephilim, Julian is also able to handle heavenly weapons with effect, since this would normally not work for other species. In particular, these are weapons made of adamas and forged by Iron Sisters, such as seraph blades.
