Safiya fon Hasstrel, aka Safi, is a Truthwitch, able to discern truth from lie. It’s a powerful magic that many would kill to have on their side, especially amongst the nobility to which Safi was born. Safi must keep her gift hidden, lest she be used as a pawn in the struggle between empires. She is the titular character of Truthwitch.

Physical DescriptionEdit

Safi has wheat, golden hair, storm blue eyes and tanned skin. She is muscular, with callused hands and feet.


Safi is hot-tempered and impulsive, and often needs Iseult to calm her down. She is fiercely loyal to her Threadfamily, and will do anything for them. She tends to run from her emotions or beat them into submission.


Safi comes from the empire of Cartorra. After having issues with Dom Eron, her uncle, Safi gets sent away to study with Matthew and Habim. Iseult det Midenzi saved her life when she was ten years old, an event that ultimately bound their lives together, making them Threadsisters.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

Safi has the ability to always know when someone is lying by feeling it with her witchery. It is considered a very powerful magic and extremely rare, though it may not be as powerful as most think. According to Safi, she's "easily confused by strong faith". Safi is also a trained fighter. In addition to her native Cartorran, she speaks Arithuanian, Damotti, and Nubrevnan. Her Nubrevnan is so proficient, she sounds like a native Nubrevnan.
