The Seven Faces in the Rock, also known as the "Seven of the Dead Fires", were worshipped as gods by the Teblor, so called because they appeared as faces carved in a rock cliff. They included:

"Seven faces in the rock
Six faces turned to the Teblor
One remains Unfound
Mother to the tribe of ghosts—
the Teblor children
we were told
to turn away
"
―MOTHER'S PRAYER OF GIVING[src]
Spoiler warning: The following section contains significant plot details about The Seven Faces in the Rock.

The Seven Faces in the Rock were revealed to be seven broken T'lan Imass known as The Unbound.[1] Following the Jaghut Wars, the Logros T'lan Imass had begun hunting them as they were traveling across Seven Cities.

Once caught, they had been interred and abandoned for their failures, but were released by the Crippled God,[2] though initially, they could not leave the glade where their faces had been carved in the rock.

In House of ChainsEdit

The Seven were freed from the glade of the rock when Karsa Orlong invoked their names in the cavern where they could recover their lost weapons.[3] They invested his sword, Bairoth Delum, so that it would never break.[4] They intended to make Karsa Orlong the Eight god of the Teblor, but he refused.[5] After they retrieved their weapons, he told them that they were not gods, but T'lan Imass. They insisted that they, in fact, were gods since they were worshiped.[6]

In The Crippled GodEdit

Once they could leave, the chase began anew through the Nascent. During the final battle to save the Crippled God, the Seven fought against one of the Pure Forkrul Assail on the battlefield.
