Einherjar[1] are a race of outsiders from the Maelstrom, chosen from the slain by valkyries, who fight for powerful extraplanar beings across the multiverse,[2] especially as favoured allies of proteans.[3]

Appearance

Einherjar appear as ghostly,[4] but muscled and battle-hardened humans, dwarves, or elves. A typical einherji stands seven feet tall and weighs around 300 pounds.[2]

Ecology

Einherjar is chosen by valkyries among warriors who die glorious deaths in battle and raised to their new state after judgement by Pharasma.[4] Valkyries and einherjar congregate in the Maelstrom, as much for chaos as for the opportunity for conflict, aboard ships or island realms, wherever the call of battle and conflict rages. Einherjar pride themselves on prowess in battle, and forever seek to prove themselves by challenging worthy foes.[2][5]
