The Dew Posted August 2, 2016 Share Posted August 2, 2016 What if the the final training for one to become a no one, or a FM, is to remove his own face? Acolytes are at some point given the task of tending the dead and remove their faces. What if this procedure has a dual purpose, namely to remove the face of the dead and repopulate their collection on the hall of the faces, and also as a practice so that each acolyte can learn to remove his/her face so that he/she can technically become a no one. If we bring today's logic in the game, then this cannot happen as the person performing the operation on one's self will most probably die, and I am not going to employ today's logic to a fantasy universe. I am pretty sure that if that can happen it will be involving serious magic as well. So far it has been shown that FM become FM by discarding their idenity in a allegorical way and on top of their face to add any face from their collection. There is a lot of mystery around it, at least for me, and this was expanded when the Waif and Arya duelled inside the dark room. I doubt that this is the case as it will perplex Arya's storyline, but an Arya-looking FM next to the Stark family will be something useful if the FM have their own agenda.
