Shan-wei, Dark Mother of Evils, formerly known as the Archangel Shan-wei, was the Church of God Awaiting equivalent to the biblical Lucifer, a fallen servant of God who became the personification of evil in the world of Safehold.

Her story, as told in the Book of Chihiro of the Holy Writ, was based on Pei Shan-wei's rebellion against Eric Langhorne and the destruction of the Alexandria Enclave. (OAR)
