- Accords - The Accords are negotiations of peace that are signed
between the Clave and the Downworlders. They’re amendments, agreed to be taken as the law by all in the Shadow Realm. These are the rules that Nephilim enforce. They are revised every fifteen years.
- Clave - The Clave is the collective name for the political body made
up of all active Shadowhunters. The Clave interprets the Accords and enforces them.
