Eragon Shadeslayer was the main protagonist in the Inheritance Cycle. He was the son of Brom and Selena. After the dragon Saphira hatched for him, Eragon became the first Dragon Rider to be born in a hundred years and was subsequently trained by Brom and then Oromis. After becoming an accomplished swordsman and magician in a relatively short time, the young rider found himself championing the cause of the Varden, inheriting both the duties of the Dragon Riders and his father’s place as Galbatorix’s foremost enemy.
Eragon was also the frequent traveling companion of the elven princess Arya, the Dwarven king Orik, and Leader of the Varden Lady Nasuada; as well as being the half-brother of the Dragon Rider Murtagh Morzansson. He was also named an Elf Friend and as full member of Dûrgrimst Ingeitum, effectively binding him to more races than any other Rider in history.
