"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.

HistoryEdit

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 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 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.
