All of the Einherjar Kindred Demon NMs are all figures and names from several sagas of Norse Mythology.  These include the: Hervarar saga, Gesta Danorum, Lay of Hyndla, a number of Faroese ballads and Orvar-Odd's saga. The sags vary but the Hervarar saga (a 13th century combining matter from several older sagas) can be summarized as follows:

The Hervarar saga deals with the sword Tyrfing and how it was forged and cursed by the Dwarves Dvalinn and Durin for king Svafrlami. Later, he lost it to the berserker Arngrim from Bolmsö who gave it to his son Angantyr. Angantyr died during a fight on Samsø against the Swedish hero Hjalmar, whose friend Orvar-Odd buried the cursed sword in a barrow together with Angantyr. From the barrow it was retrieved by Angantyr's daughter, the shieldmaiden Hervor who summoned her dead father to claim her inheritance. Then the saga continues with her and her son Heidrek, the king of Reidgotaland. Between his sons Angantyr and Hlod, there is a great battle about their father's heritage and Hlod is aided by the Huns. However, Hlod is defeated and killed.

The Hervarar saga deals with the sword Tyrfing and how it was forged and cursed by dwarves. Later, it was lost it to the berserker Arngrim. After Arngrim returned to Bolmsö with Eyfura, they had twelve sons whom all followed in their father's footsteps and became berserkers.  Many of the Einherjar Kindred Demons get their names from these sons, including: [[Angantyr]], [[Hjorvarth]], [[Hervarth]], [[Hrani]], [[Barri]], [[Tind]], [[Hadding the Elder]], [[Hadding the Younger]], and [[Bui]].
 
 
In the end, the saga relates that Angantyr, had the son Heidhrekr Ulfhamr who was king of Reidgotaland for a long time. Heidhrekr's daughter was Hildr and she had the son Halfdan the Valiant, who was the father of Ivar Vidfamne. After Ivar Vidfamne, a list of Swedish semi-legendary kings up to Philip Halstensson follows, but this was probably composed separately from the rest of the saga and integrated with it in later redactions.
 
 
 
In all versions of the saga, Arngrim returned to Bolmsö with Eyfura. They had twelve sons who all followed in their father's footsteps and became berserkers.  It is these names that many of the Einherjar Kindred Demons get there names.  There are several versions but the longer list the names as: [[Angantyr]], [[Hjorvarth]], [[Hervarth]], [[Hrani]], [[Barri]], [[Tyrfing]], [[Tind]], two Haddings ([[Hadding the Elder]] and [[Hadding the Younger]]), [[Bui]], Bild and Toki.  Other versions included the names: [[Reifnir]], [[Brami]] and Saeming.  All of whom were [[Berserkr]]s.

Historical Background[edit]

All of the Einherjar Kindred Demon NMs are all figures and names from several sagas of Norse Mythology. These include: the Hervarar saga, the Gesta Danorum, the Lay of Hyndla, and a number of Faroese ballads and Orvar-Odd's saga.

The Hervarar saga deals with the sword Tyrfing and how it was forged and cursed by dwarves. Later, it was lost it to the berserker Arngrim. After Arngrim returned to Bolmsö with Eyfura, they had twelve sons whom all followed in their father's footsteps and became berserkers. Many of the Einherjar Kindred Demons get their names from these sons, including: Angantyr, Hjorvarth, Hervarth, Hrani, Barri, Tind, Hadding the Elder, Hadding the Younger, and Bui.
