Felix is completely in love with Safie. "'[Safie's dad] quickly perceived the impression that his daughter had made on the heart of Felix,"' (Shelley 118). Safie's dad noticed how he felt towards his daughter.
Safie's dad finds out he's sentenced to death. "'...who, loaded with chains, waited in despair the execution of the barbarous sentence,"' (Shelley 118) He was a criminal and he was found guilty at his trial.
Felix helps him escape from jail hoping that it'll make him see that he's good enough for Safie. "'Felix conducted the fugitives through France to Lyons and across Mont Cenis to Leghorn,'" (Shelley 119). But, it was a twisted plan.
Safie's dad wasn't really planning on letting them get married. "'The TUrk allowed this intimacy to take place and encourage the hopes of the youthful lovers, while in his heart he had formed far other plans,"' (Shelley 119). He was a mean father who didn't want his daughter to marry a Christian- Felix.
Eventhough Safie's dad still does not want Safie and Felix together, he still insists on sending Felix money for his troubles. "...insultingly sending Felix a pittance of money to aid him..." (Shelley 120). Safie's dad was trying to spite him.
Felix and Safie escaped to Germany where they could be together. "Taking with her some jewels that belonged to her and a sum of money , she quitted Italy with an attendant...and departed for Germany," (Shelley 121). She left her dad in Turkey and went to live with Felix so she could be happy.
