"There is only one god, and his name is Death. And there is only one thing we say to Death: 'Not today'."
Syrio Forel[src]

The God of Death is a deity worshipped predominantly in the Free City of Braavos.

History

Season 1

Syrio Forel mentions his belief in the God of Death to Arya Stark during their "dancing" lessons.[1]

Season 3

Arya Stark reveals to Beric Dondarrion and Thoros of Myr that she has come to believe that "Death" is the one true god.[2]

In the books

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 worshipped, 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 worshipped 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.
