Getrue is a skaa merchant and member of the Luthadel Assembly after the Collapse on Scadrial.[1]

Appearance and Personality[edit]

Getrue has gained a lot of weight since the Collapse.[1] Like all merchants in the Assembly, Getrue wears a very fine suit, seemingly even more refined than those worn by nobles.[1] He can be a pushover in the presence of stronger personalities.[1]


Getrue has known Philen Frandeu since the days of the Final Empire, when Philen was known as "Lin"; Getrue is still prone to accidentally using that name.[1]

After the Collapse, Elend Venture abolishes restrictions on skaa merchants;[2] this allows a number of skaa merchants and craftsmen, including Getrue, to suddenly become far more wealthy than had been possible during the Final Empire.[3]

Getrue and Philen are chosen to serve in the Luthadel Assembly as two of the eight merchant representatives. Getrue seems to like some of Elend Venture's ideas, but he is heavily influenced by Philen's aggressive politics.[1] The eight merchants typically vote in a bloc led by Philen, who opposes Elend and his idealistic policies.[1] Philen believes that the merchants should no longer be considered skaa;[1] he is highly motivated to gain a noble title and convinces the other merchants that this should be a key factor in their support of a ruler.[4][5]

Getrue joins the rest of the Assembly in deposing Elend,[6] although he later seems to have some second thoughts about it.[1] He is expected to vote with Philen to crown Ashweather Cett as the new king,[7] but the merchants ultimately vote for Ferson Penrod[7] after he promises them more wealth and titles than Cett could offer, backed by Straff Venture.[7][8]
