Kadir Safar is a Shadowhunter, said to be the second most important person in the New York Conclave next to the head, Maryse Lightwood. Being an important asset to the Conclave, Maryse relied on him often.


Kadir had a brother named Malik who died in a battle against Valentine's demons in 2007. He shared a slight resemblance with Malik.

Kadir became one of the Shadowhunters who began training the students at the New York Institute while there was still no official replacement for their last tutor.

Some time after the culprit behind the deaths of several Shadowhunters, particularly former Circle members, was revealed, Kadir helped organize the capture of Camille Belcourt. When Alec Lightwood and the others got into trouble with Camille and Lilith, he sent a fire message asking the Conclave for backup, and Kadir was among those who responded.[1] He and Maryse were the ones who went to the roof to check on Jace and Sebastian and found them missing.[2]

When all Institutes were called to Idris for their emergency evacuation, Kadir was present during the Conclave meeting in New York and the subsequent Council meetings that followed in Alicante.

Kadir was among those who survived the battle that took place in Alicante. Months after their victory, Kadir was among those who attended Luke and Jocelyn's wedding.[3]
