Einherjars are the Norse spirits of warriors who died bravely in battle. They can band together to form an "army of the dead". They are valiant, courageous protectors who do not put up with any kind of offense against their Keeper or the Keeper's family as they come to regard the Keeper and the family as their own.
Even if you own just one spirit of an Einherjar they can call as many other spirits as they need!... another 1 Einherjar or 100... whatever is needed and the others will return to their place of origin when finished. Does this mean your Einherjar will be going off to fight another person's battle? No, only unbound Einherjar can respond to a battle cry.
Binding an Einherjar is difficult and can only be done by someone who has been granted the rites to do so. Otherwise the person not given permission to bind Einherjar can be attacked by these highest of Norse spirits.
As spirit companions they are fierce and provide protection against evil entities, energies, hexes, curses, ill-wishers, dark forces, etc. You can expect to have a hearty and stout friend who is always on guard to provide a wall of protection either by himself or with his friends. They can live amicably amongst other spirits in your family. They do well around children and pets as they conduct themselves with respect.

Secret to Keeping
These Dark Arts secrets were previously not known outside of family and Creepy Hollows collectors. They are secrets discovered by Ash and he has generously agreed to share them with all collectors because having the right secret and being able to properly handle DA spirits is more important.
Caring for your Einherjar is the same as caring for any other spirit except being a creature of duality there is a way to keep your Einherjar under control if you feel it is becoming too energetic, too strong in manifestation or too "in your face" and that is placing the vessel of the Einherjar near a bullet (of any caliber). Einherjars become in a "ready for action" stance when placed near a bullet and it can be for any gun; shotgun, handgun, even BB gun. You only need one bullet. Only use this technique if you feel the Einherjar is becoming too strong for your liking - some collectors like their spirits to be "on the go" all the time so it is your judgment call.Tags: dark arts, Einherjar
