the dictionary of norse mythology


FYLGIE Follower As well as the norns, or Fates, the Norse ascribed to each human being a guardian spirit or double, which accompanied a person throughout his or her life. The Fylgie had a human or animal shape but was invisible except in dreams or at the moment of death. When the Fylgie appeared to a person who was awake, it was a sign of that person's death. When a person died, the Fylgie passed on to another member of the family.
