Syrio Forel

Syrio Forel, a bravo.

"This is the Bravo's Dance, the Water Dance. It is swift... and sudden!"
Syrio Forel[src]

Bravos are the swaggering swordsmen of the Free City of Braavos. Unlike Westerosi knights, bravos practice a swifter style of swordsmanship known as the Water Dance.

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Bravos are young swordsmen that prowl the city of Braavos during the night. They dress in brightly colored finery and actively seek out fights to prove their skills. Most will fight with little cause, such as a man's opinion on who is the city's most beautiful courtesan, and some with no cause at all. Anyone carrying a sword after dark in Braavos can be challenged to a duel. Simply placing a finger on your sword while facing a bravo is akin to challenging them.
