In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, the First Sword of Braavos is often chosen by the Sealord because he is the most observant of the Bravos (sword fighters), not necessarily because he is the most talented swordsman; therefore he is best able to protect him from threats both seen and unseen.
