One of multiple parts of a person’s soul in Norse Paganism. The fylgja is also known as the fetch/follower. It is a core essence of a person. The fylgja can travel away from the body in a form of astral shape. Famous examples of fylgja are Odin’s ravens, Huginn (“thought”) and Muninn (“memory”). This part of the soul extinguishes after death.
