Sammar's little brother, who has his hands full keeping his "directionally impaired" sister from wandering off a cliff. Safi insists that he's not clingy: he doesn't need his sister; SHE needs HIM. To the doubtery out there: this is 100% true. — Directory, Sonic Unleashed
Safi (サファー,Safā?) is a character that appears in Sonic Unleashed. He is a human resident of Shamar and the younger brother of Sammar. Despite being the younger sibling, Safi is the one looking after Sammar since she easily gets lost.
Growing up, Safi often looked after his older sister Sammar, because her no sense of directions would make her get lost on even the simplest of trips and end up anywhere. As such, Safi was often worried sick about Sammar's well-being and would have to work hard to keep her from getting lost. At the same time, Safi annoyed about how Sammar always mistook his worries as sign that he depended on her. To keep his worries in check, Safi was always told by Sammar where she was going when she left the house. At some point, Safi wrote a note with their home address on and gave it Sammar so that she could use it to get back home, though she sometimes forgot it.
During the events of Sonic Unleashed, Safi discovered that Sammar had disappeared without a clue and became incredibly worried. Sometime later, Safi met Sonic the Hedgehog and Chip, where he asked them if they foreigners, hoping they had seen Sammar. When they confirmed it, Safi described Sammar to Sonic and Chip, and explained his situation to them, before asking Sonic the favor that if he met Sammar, he had to tell her about the note with their address on in her pocket, so she could get back home. As Sonic accepted his request, Safi thanked him.
Eventually, Sammar came home thanks to Sonic, and Safi was relieved to have her back. When Safi later met Sonic and Chip again, he thanked Sonic for his help and told him that Sammar was back home, though he now had to warn Sammar not to get lost again. Safi then tried to give Sammar some advice to go by and how use of his note when she got lost, but was annoyed to her from Sammar that the note did not work.
Safi later watched on in horror with the rest of Shamar as Dark Gaia began to cast the world into darkness while maturing into Perfect Dark Gaia, but later rejoiced when the world returned to normal following Perfect Dark Gaia's defeat at the hands of Super Sonic and the Gaia Colossus.
Safi never made an in-game appearance on the Wii/PlayStation 2 version of Sonic Unleashed. He did however appear during the pre-rendered cutscenes, where he and the rest of Shamar watched on in horror as Dark Gaia began to cast the world into darkness while maturing into Perfect Dark Gaia, but later rejoiced when the world returned to normal following Perfect Dark Gaia's defeat at the hands of Super Sonic and the Gaia Colossus.
Remarkably responsible and protective, Safi keeps a sharp eye on Sammar and gets very worried when he does not know where she is. However, his inability to convince Sammar that she is the one needing help and not him (since Sammar believes Safi is just clingy) is a source of constant frustration for him.
