"In Norway and Iceland, there were men who described as eigi einhammr, Which means, “not one of skin”.They were supposed to be able to assume other bodies as well as the natures of the creatures whose bodies they took. By this transformation, the eigi einhammr acquired extraordinary powers; his strength was multiplied several times over because he retained his own but added to it the strength of the creature whose form he had taken. A man transformed was known as a hamrammr.
There were various ways to effect the necessary change. Sometimes a pelt was thrown over the body and in this case the transformation was instant. The eigi einhammr, in its bestial form, is recognized only by its eyes. They can never be altered.”
