Sidekick Saturday: Simon Lewis

We know them, and we love them. They're there for everything, from comic relief to life-saving feats of bravery. They're the sidekicks. Do they get the credit they're due? Probably not, but we love them anyway.

Here at The Reading Addict, I'll be shining a weekly spotlight on secondary characters I love (like Ron Weasley, obviously).

Origin: The Mortal Instruments Series by Cassandra Clare

Quirky Traits Include:
 Plays in a band with a constantly changing name, wears glasses, was once turned into a rodent 

Why I Love Him: As Clary embarks on a journey that begins to reveal her mysterious (and epic) past, Simon tags along and refuses to be left behind. He's loyal in the face of danger, and he does his best to fit into his best friend's new world. Plus, he's hilarious.

A Quote from Simon: “'Jesus!' Luke exclaimed.

'Actually, it's just me,' said Simon. 'Although I've been told the resemblance is startling.'"
