Einarr Flies-Like-Smoke was a Corax, and Leif Ericson's navigator. He joined Ericson's expedition in 1002 C.E. to steer him away from the Pure Lands at the behest of New World Corax. However, a storm forces him to steer the ship to the safety of American shores. Einarr eventually felt that he has no choice but to help Ericson, who eventually visits the areas that Bjarni Herjulfson described. Ericson returned home a hero, but Einarr was derided among the Corax for his failure.
