Belwas = Varys?
Such a reach. Varys does not disappear before Belwas appears, I'm 99.9% sure of this. Also, the physical descriptions don't match, especially Belwas' scars. Interesting theory, but I'm confident in saying there's nothing there.
Belwas is a servant of Illyrio Mopatis. Selmy went to Mopatis because he knew that the Magister had given room and board etc to the Targaryens and was invested in Dany's future success.
