Magnus' parents feared him even when he was a child. It is revealed that his mother was tricked into sleeping with a demon and when she realized what he was, hung herself in a barn. His mother was half Dutch and half Indonesian, explaining Magnus' Asian features. His step-father was later driven into an attempt to drown him, and Magnus burned him where he stood. He was then brought up by Churchmen. Cassandra Clare revealed in her Twitter that Magnus was born on what was once the Dutch East Indies. Camille does state in City of Lost Souls that his father is a Prince of Hell and is implied to be a high ranking demon. Whenever asked who his father is, Magnus always avoids the question or changes the subject.
