With "Game of Thrones" George R.R. Martin crafted a universe full of (tons and tons and tons) complicated and complex characters. Many of the main characters have strong, individualized voices and even out of context, almost any quote can be quickly placed to its speaker. Jaqen H'ghar is no exception. He speaks with authority, with experience, and with a distinct syntax style: "a man says... a girl says... a boy does..."

Though he only appears in six episodes and has very little backstory, he is a criminal from the free cities, and one of the Faceless Men, able to change his appearance and start over with a new name. Arya Stark frees Jaqen and two others, giving them life, for which Jaqen owes her three lives of her choosing.
