steadfast is a synonym of loyal

adjective [ sted-fast, -fahst, -fuhst ]

steadfast is another word for loyal

Loyal and steadfast are words you can rely on. The adjective loyal implies allegiance to a person, organization, cause or idea. Steadfast means literally “fixed in place”—such as an immovable structure. But more often steadfast is used figuratively to indicate undeviating constancy or resolution. A steadfast friend, then, is someone who is “fixed in place” by your side, so to speak, and who will maintain that position come what may.
