Eragon was brought up by his Uncle, Garrow. His mother died just after he was born
and he never knew who his father was. He grew up on a farm in Carvahal with his Cousin, Roran. His whole life is turned around
when he finds a peculiar stone in the Spine from which a dragon hatches! From then on Eragon is trained by Brom and the Elves
as a Dragon Rider and joins The Varden (a group of rebels) to fight against Galbatorix's Empire.
Saphira is Eragon's Dragon and best friend. She has sparkling blue scales and a
stubborn attitude. She is wise, however, and will do whatever is takes to keep Eragon safe.
