The Faceless Men : Game of Thrones


Describing the Jaqen’s part is a quite tedious work in reviews.The talking way of the faceless are somewhat different from other.They normally use “a girl”, “a man” and “no one” in their talks.They are all the worshippers of Many faced Gods.For a new GOT fan it would be difficult to understand Jaqen’s part, therefore i decided to give you some history class about The Faceless Men and Many Faced God.This article is supposed for that person only.A man have to read this. 😉

The Faceless Men are an organization based in the Free City of Braavos, though their members range far and wide across both Essos and Westeros. They are reportedly a guild of assassins who command exorbitant fees, but have a reputation for success that is unparalleled by any comparable organization.None of the first Faceless man were born to lords and ladies, they began as slaves in the mines of Valyria.The Many-Faced God taught him(first faceless man) to shed his face and how to give gifts.That man taught others in exchange for their services.Soon all the Masters and overseers were gone and the faceless men fled.They founded the Free city of Braavos and built the house of Black and White.The faces present in the house of B & W were the faces they wore.

Faceless and No One

They consider themselves servants of the Many-Faced God, a god of death who is unknowingly worshipped by all religions in the world, in the form of one god or another. The weirwood Face for the Old Gods of the Forest and the Stranger of the Faith of the Seven are two such deities. Faceless Men shake off their former identities to serve death and become “no one” which allows them to become entirely different people, all in service to the Many-Faced God. They also believed that, as servants of death, they must serve above all else and that they must deliver upon certain people the “gift” of death.

The Faceless Men possess the ability to physically change their faces, shapeshifting so that they appear as an entirely new person.Their headquarters are located in the House of Black and White, a temple dedicated to the Many-Faced God.

The Faceless Men are a cult of mystic assassins that worship the Many-Faced God, Death. They believe that death is a merciful end to suffering. For a price, the Guild will grant the “gift” of death to anyone in the world, considering the assassination a sacrament to their god. In the Guild’s temple, those who seek an end to suffering may drink from a black cup which grants a painless death.Killing for personal gain or out of anger or hate are forbidden to Faceless Men.

As the Faceless Men forsake their identities for the service of the Many-Faced God, they only assassinate targets they have been hired to kill and may not choose who is worthy of the ‘gift’ by themselves.
