Einherjar (エインヘリャル Einheryaru?) are deceased warriors brought back to life by the will of Odin.

In Saint Seiya: Soul of Gold, the twelve Gold Saints from the first series were revived under mysterious circumstances after sacrificing their lives in Judecca to destroy the Wailing Wall and lead the bronze saints to Elysium.

Known Einherjar Edit

Mythological roots Edit

In Norse Mythology, einherjar are those that have died in battle and are brought to Valhalla by the valkyries. In Valhalla, they eat their fill of the nightly-resurrecting beast Sæhrímnir, and are brought their fill of mead (from the udder of the goat Heiðrún) by valkyries. The einherjar prepare daily for the events of Ragnarök, when they will advance for an immense battle at the field of Vígríðr; the battle which the "ein" (single-time) refers to. Heimdallr occasionally returned the best of Einherjar to Midgard (Earth) or Jötunheimr with the purpose of killing giants, but they were forbidden to talk to the living.
