Abstract: 
The myth of Siyavash, with regard to its every minute thematic structure, is one of the most pivotal part in the Iranian mythological chain and gives structural support to it. Most stories are, thematically, like Siyavash’s, and pave the way for it. Siyavash has the highest humane character in Iranian myths and especially in Shahnameh. His birth, life, and death possess the qualities of ancient myths and his character is enshrouded in mystery and ritual.
Based on the analysis of the themes of Siyavash's mythological character, the present article aims to scrutinize a number of his prominent characteristics and consequently to prove that: a) Siyavash is god-like (like Ahura and supernatural beings).
b) His character is quite like the archetype of the first man.
Finally, the article tries to answer the main question: What is the reason of Siyavash's mystery? The tacit answer to these hypotheses could introduce Siyavash as an influential and comprehensive character; a character that is perfect and dynamic.
