A man with a half volition goes backwards and forwards, and makes no way on the smoothest road a man with a whole volition advances on the roughest, and will reach his purpose, if there be even a little worthiness in it.

The man without a purpose is like a ship without a rudder - a waif , a nothing, a no man. Have a purpose in life and having it, throw such strength of mind and muscle into your work as God has given you.

WAIF | Helping Whidbey Island Pets and Their People
How to say WAIF in sign language? Thomas Carlyle : A man with a half volition goes backwards and forwards, and makes no way on the smoothest road a man with a whole volition advances on the roughest, and will reach his purpose, if there be even a little worthiness in it.

But, as fans have noticed, the way Waif fights with Arya is so similar to the way Syrio fought with her when he was training her in King's Landing back in Season 1 of Game of Thrones.
From the way that Waif handles that fighting staff, to the way she urges Arya to get up and fight back, she is so similar to the Syrio we knew, even if it was just a short time.
If Syrio is a Faceless Man, it would kind of make a lot of sense, and if it turns out to be true that Waif is Syrio, I wouldn't be surprised. This has got to be the biggest argument that Waif is Syrio on Game of Thrones. The way we see her handle those wooden staffs is exactly like Syrio did when he was training with Arya. Of course it can be argued that their fighting styles are similar because somewhere along the line, they were trained to fight the same way.
The Waif Stabbing Arya On 'Game Of Thrones' Broke The Faceless Men's Rules
But if that's the case, then at the very least, Syrio has some connection to Waif or the Faceless Men. In Season 1 of Game of Thrones , Arya escapes the dance room while Syrio is in the midst of fighting with the kingsguard. When Arya runs away, we see her in a corridor and hear the clanking of swords and grunts and screams, but if you pay attention, it's clear that the cries of agony didn't necessarily come from the direction she'd just fled from.

Which leads one to believe that Syrio didn't die, but probably slipped away in time after injuring Ser Meryn Trant enough to get away. It should also be noted that the person from Arya's hit list that she's able to kill in Braavos ends up being none other than Meryn. It's no secret that Waif has had in it for Arya for, like, ever, so it's also no surprise that she doesn't want the Stark girl joining their exclusive club anytime soon.
Game of Thrones: Arya Stark was killed by The Waif - Here's the huge clue you missed
Waif fights with Arya any chance she gets and has even told Jaqen that Arya isn't ready. Syrio knows Arya's importance as a member of the Stark family and as they had a sort of special relationship back in King's Landing, he obviously wouldn't want her to give up her identity and life as Arya Stark. This might be reaching for a tin foil theory, so grab your hat and bear with us here.
