A Truthspeaker or Soe'feia is a so'jhin who serves Seanchan royalty by telling them the absolute truth of a situation as they see it, no matter how painful or humiliating it might be. While many of the Blood call their Voice "Truthspeaker," few understand how much power they truly hold. Since those owned by the Blood are so'jhin they can be punished, but a true Truthspeaker is required to tell the absolute truth and may not be punished for it. Many think that Algwyn, the last man to hold the Crystal Throne, was mad to allow his soe'feia to live after she slapped him in the face before the entire court.[1]
