A Faceless Man known as Jaqen H'ghar talks about the many deities worshipped in the known world, and how they are all ultimately aspects of a single deity - the Many-Faced God.
Jaqen H'ghar: A young man walks besides a girl across a flowered field. Spring has come, and this girl is his life. He prays. A child climbs a tree to watch the sunset over the fields. Summer is ending, and the harvest is life for his village. He prays. A hunter tracks a boar through the woods. Winter is coming, and this boar is life for his family. He prays. But to whom do they pray?
The world has as many answers as there are men to answer, but walk far enough, climb high enough, hunt long enough, and a man shall find only one. One god, with many faces.
In Qohor, He is the Black Goat, and he feeds on blood offerings every day. On holy days he's offered condemned criminals, and in times of great crisis he may even be offered the nobles' children of the city to beg his protection. Does he accept their gift? Well, the city still stands.
In the House of Black and White, however, He is all of them, and none of them. He is the Many-Faced God, and wherever man turns, there He is. Men come from all corners of the world to know Him, to beg His favor and seek His gift; for themselves if their life's grown too hard, or for others who are making it so. It is all the same to the Many-Faced-God. "Valar dohaeris", all men must serve Him, beggars and kings. "Valar morghulis", all men must die, good and evil.
Men worship as they will, but at the end of every road stands the Many-Faced God, waiting.
