- "There is only one god, and his name is Death. And there is only one thing we say to Death: 'Not today'."

In the booksEdit
In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, the God of Death is referred to as the "Many-Faced God", or "Him of Many Faces", and is worshiped particularly by the Faceless Men, a guild of assassins based out of the Free City of Braavos.
The Faceless Men believe that the Many-Faced God is unknowingly worshiped by most faiths, simply under different names. Every religion either has a god of death (in polytheistic faiths), or worships a single god with dominion over death (in monotheistic faiths). Incarnations of the Many-Faced God of Death would include The Stranger in the Faith of the Seven, that has dominion over death, and the Great Other opponent of R'hllor.
