It is my belief that since the Seven appeared INCARNATE, that we have the Seven with us already. They will be the figures we all know, and are making the iconic journey of transformation into their personal archetype of one of the Seven. Certainly Gendry is the Smith - his arc started the moment Cersei threw him away and he went into trade as a blacksmith. Arya is becoming DEATH so she is the Stranger. I thought initially that Sansa would be the maiden, but I am beginning to think she is going to outgrow that role and become a Mother figure. Sandor started as a warrior, but is becoming quietly faithful and he may end up being the Father. The Crone will of course be Catlyn or whatever she is now. Barristan I believe will be the warrior. Dany I am leaving out because I truly believe she is going to die. Her role was to get the dragons where they needed to be, and she will imho. It started out to me so simply, but with the character arcs moving, it's as if the icons are changing. fascinating. but i truly believe the power of THE SEVEN INCARNATE will be a huge part of winning the endgame - when they team up in force with the other religions.
We know something from ADWD spoilers:
The Seven apparently appeared incarnate among the people of the Hills of Andalos (south of Pentos in the Free Cities), which became the basis for the religion of the Faith of the Seven and the start of the Andal culture. It may be that the Seven encouraged the Andals to migrate to Westeros.
Finding out creation myths and the like could be interesting though.
