Comic-Con Interview with Christopher Paolini – Part 2

Part two of our exclusive interview with Christopher Paolini from Comic-Con International has finally arrived! We sat down with Christopher and threw nearly every good question we received in an over-thirty-five-minute interview. The interview has been broken into three parts and we are excited to share part two with you now. Part one created quite the level of buzz with Christopher Paolini’s revelation that Eragon is currently being held captive, restrained by manacles, by an unknown enemy in the Book 4 manscript. The interview continues to not disappoint in a very revealing part two! This portion of our interview touches on a number of interesting subjects: the deaths of Oromis and Glaedr, the presumed deaths of the original Eragon and his dragon, confirmation Arya’s training from Oromis, Du Weldenvarden’s anti-scrying wards, dragon eggs and their destined Riders, details on a could-have-been bond between Murtagh and Saphira, green egg shell fragments, Alagaesia’s physical size, heart of hearts hive minds and email, phantoms, the dragon thief, lifespan of an Urgal, dragon shades, and more!List of questions asked in part two:

  • Had Oromis not had a seizure, could he have captured or killed Murtagh?
  • Will you ever go into greater detail on the presumed deaths of the first Eragon and his own dragon?
  • When Oromis taught Eragon how to draw energy from the surroundings to make spells, he said that this “was a secret for the Riders”. However, the boat made of grass by Arya draws energy from the surroundings to fly. How did she know a spell reserved for Riders?
    • Now can you say how much training she would have received from Oromis?
  • In Eldest, Eragon, Saphira, Arya and the rest of the gang were traveling to Ellesmera when Eragon’s necklace, which was imbued with a spell to ward off scrying went off while they were in Du Weldenvarden. How is this possible when the wards the elves erected prevent all magical items, thoughts, and spells from entering its boundaries?
  • The spell on a dragon egg means that a dragon egg would only hatch for its destined Rider. What happens if that destined Rider is killed before he is able to bond with the dragon hatchling?
    • Do you believe that there is anyone else that is currently living in Alagaësia alongside Eragon, not necessarily whom he knows, that Saphira would have hatched for?
  • In Eldest, Eragon steps past or on a green egg fragment. Is this a hint?
  • What is the physical size of Alagaesia is in comparison to a land mass on Earth?
  • Can multiple dragon hearts of hearts communicate with each other?
    • Do they have to be in the same area?
  • If you were a fan, what would you ask Christopher?
  • You said that strange phantoms lived in Doru Areba; can you describe those phantoms and do any speaking races that we haven’t encountered thus far live there?
  • Will we ever learn why the thief was only able to steal one dragon egg from Urû’baen?
  • What is the average lifespan of an Urgal?
  • What happens when a Dragon Rider becomes a Shade, or is that impossible? I think that last time you may have said that that was impossible.

Comic-Con Interview Part 2 – Audio:

Favorite quote from the interview: “It’s just a green egg fragment. Why would you think that was a hint? Oh, because there’s a green dragon on the front of the book? Oh, that… No comment.”

Transcript of Part 2
Remember, you can listen to the actual audio from the interview in the audio player above!

Mike Macauley: Phoenix asked, “Had Oromis not had a seizure, could he have captured or killed Murtagh?”

Christopher Paolini: There’s no doubt in my mind that Oromis and Glaedr vastly, vastly out-class Murtagh and Thorn in terms in sheer size when it comes to the dragons, and sheer skill when it comes to magic and sword fighting. Of course, Murtagh had the advantage of a great number of dragons’ Eldunari – the heart of hearts – feeding his strength, so assuming Galbatorix had not interfered, Oromis would – I think – have at least held his own, and I think there was at least a good chance that he might have beaten and captured or killed Murtagh and Thorn.

M: Will you ever go into greater detail on the presumed deaths of the first Eragon and his own dragon?

C: No comment.

M: Well that was easy. When Oromis taught Eragon how to draw energy from the surroundings to make spells, he said that this “was a secret for the Riders”. However, the boat made of grass by Arya draws energy from the surroundings to fly. How did she know a spell reserved for Riders?

C: Arya is a special case; she was given guardianship over Saphira’s egg for almost twenty years and I think she would have been—I think Oromis would have taught her this to help her protect Saphira’s egg. I mean, there was no playing around here; this was do-or-die with Saphira protecting her egg and everything and that’s something he would have taught her.

M: Now can you say how much training she would have received from Oromis?

C: I think Arya has a level of training far exceeding Eragon’s quite honestly, mainly because she has had far more time to learn and just the fact that she grew up with the ancient language means that she is always going to be more facile and fluent with it than Eragon and more adept at thinking up interesting ways of using the ancient language and thus spells.

I would not want to be on her bad side, let’s put it that way.

M: Yeah, I think she’s shown that at a few points now. She does not seem like she is a good person to mess with. JD[bunchofnumbers] – there’s a lot of numbers there – asked, “In Eldest, Eragon, Saphira, Arya and the rest of the gang were traveling to Ellesmera when Eragon’s necklace, which was imbued with a spell to ward off scrying went off while they were in Du Weldenvarden. How is this possible when the wards the elves erected prevent all magical items, thoughts, and spells from entering its boundaries?”

C: That’s a really good question. That is a great question! And I did think of it… it’s… my thought on that was a little complicated so bear with me. I think that scrying isn’t necessarily an intrusive process, although I’m sure that the elves’ wards would have been set up to prevent it. The like their secrecy. But I also thought that even if—let’s say that Galbatorix was trying to scry on Eragon—no, no it was Murtagh I believe. If Murtagh is trying to scry on Eragon, the spell is directed at Eragon and the spell is going to expend a certain amount of energy. That energy would have to be blocked or dissipated from some source otherwise Murtagh would have been able to see Eragon. I figured that both the wards surrounding Du Weldenvarden and Eragon’s necklace activated at the same time; they were both doing the same purpose. So if Eragon didn’t have the necklace, he still would have been protected as long as he was in the forest, but since that process was happening at that point he felt the draining of the energy as his necklace performed its allotted task.

M: Good answer!

C: It’s a little complicated. I did think of it though!

M: Another question from Sal: The spell on a dragon egg means that a dragon egg would only hatch for its destined Rider. What happens if that destined Rider is killed before he is able to bond with the dragon hatchling?

C: Actually, one second – before I answer that, let me go back to the previous question. It isn’t impossible to scry into Du Weldenvarden because if you remember, in the beginning of Brisingr, Eragon did scry with Queen Islanzadí.

M: I thought that was just a scrying dish only made for that?

C: Yes, that’s because there are loopholes set up that the elves can use that lets them communicate in and out of the forest essentially. But it’s not one-hundred percent impossible. I don’t think any outsider would know the way to get through the wards but it isn’t one-hundred percent impossible.

The question about the dragon eggs and who they hatch for… when I say that there’s people destined to become a Dragon Rider, the person destined is the person that that dragon chooses to be their Rider and the person that that dragon feels is appropriate for them. If Eragon had died, or had not found Saphira’s egg—if someone else had—I think that Saphira might have gone another hundred years in that egg but she would have found someone else to hatch for.

So there’s not only one person in all of eternity, although I think that in all of eternity there is probably a small handful of people that Saphira would ever hatch for, but certainly at that time and everywhere else, Eragon was the one who she felt right for and so she chose him.

M: Do you believe that there is anyone else that is currently living in Alagaësia alongside Eragon, not necessarily whom he knows, that Saphira would have hatched for?

C: That’s a really tricky question. You know, I think she might have hatched for Murtagh honestly, if Murtagh had been of his own free will and—

M: I think that speaks volumes for Murtagh before Galbatorix got his hands on him.

C: Exactly. I think she—well obviously she wouldn’t have hatched for Arya, she had plenty of chance. [Chuckles] But also, I think one of the reasons she did hatch fro Eragon is because she was vaguely aware of what was going on with Arya and the fact that Durza had attacked her and Saphira was now out on her own, in an egg in the middle of the forest, and she was incredibly vulnerable and dangerous. I think quite honestly, Saphira didn’t want to go back to Galbatorix and was at that point, after almost one hundred years in the egg, was willing to give it a shot.

M: It must get boring, you know?

C: Yeah! Well, I always figured that the dragon in the eggs are almost in a state of suspended animation for a bit.

M: Frozen?

C: Yeah, a little sluggish.

M: Here’s a good dragon egg question – this has been bugging me for quite some time, especially as I was writing the Almanac. We may have asked it, I don’t recall. In Eldest, Eragon steps past or on a green egg fragment. Is this a hint?

C: [Long pause.] No. [Tone of sarcasm] It’s just a green egg fragment. Why would you think that was a hint? Oh, because there’s a green dragon on the front of the book? Oh, that… No comment.

M: Works for me! Oh, this is the question—okay, to preface this, we’ve been joking around about this question because it came up as a joke and then I actually read it in this interview. Someone wants to know what you would say the physical size of Alagaesia is in comparison to a land mass on Earth.

C: I’ve actually worked out the distances on the map. The map isn’t one-hundred percent to scale because… well, I drew it way back when and let’s just say that the cartographer miscounted his steps in a few places. But it is pretty close. From Carvahall to Farthen Dur—no no, excuse me—Gilead, where Eragon was captured in Eragon, to Farthen Dur, when he makes that epic journey with Murtagh on foot… I forget how many miles exactly, I don’t have my papers in front of me, but I believe it was verging on close to one thousand miles. Or heading in that direction; the better part of one thousand miles.

It wasn’t a straight line though, they did kind of make an L-shape going down there.

M: We have people who have tracked the actual paths.

C: So have I! [Chuckling] So you have at least that distance, and then if you say that there’s a good chunk of distance from Carvahall to Gilead, and of course the width of Alagaësia… yeah, it’s not as big as the United States mainly because I don’t go all the way to the far eastern coast on my continent, which would be further away than the far coast of the United States. But it’s big.

M: Well that person is going to be excited to have got that answer.

C: Well that’s a good question! No one has asked that before.

M: Nightstar51 asked: Can multiple dragon hearts of hearts communicate with each other?

C: Yeah, just as if a bunch of telepaths are in a room together, they can all join minds and share thoughts. The same principle holds true with dragon eggs.

M: Do they have to be in the same area?

C: No, as long as they are close enough to be in mental contact. And same would hold true with the dragon hearts – they can all link their consciousnesses. I hate saying that word! I hate saying consciousnesses!

M: So like heart of heart email? [Cheesy grin.]

C: Yeah, like email! They essentially form a giant neural network.

M: Here’s a good question. If you were a fan, what would you ask Christopher?

C: When’s the next book coming out?! [Laughter]

M: Oh jeeze! [Chuckling]

C: I know I’m evil. I’m evil to myself. I think I’d probably be interested in the forging of a sword a little bit because I am interested in that stuff.

M: That was a great part of Brisingr, I really enjoyed that.

C: Thank you.

M: This is also from Tulkas. You said that strange phantoms lived in Doru Areba; can you describe those phantoms and do any speaking races that we haven’t encountered thus far live there?

C: No comment.

M: Okay. Same person again—

C: Good question but no comment.

M: Well, you always know it’s a good question when you get a no comment! You’ve hit the right point.

C: That’s right!

M: Will we ever learn why the thief was only able to steal one dragon egg from Urû’baen?

C: If I ever tell Brom and Joed’s—specifically Brom’s story—you will learn, yes. But the thing is that Brom never learned what happened.

M: So some day maybe?

C: Some day maybe.

M: What is the average lifespan of an Urgal?

C: You know, no one has ever asked me that! That’s a really good question.

M: Just to give credit to the asker, that was from DragonGirl.

C: The average lifespan of a male Urgal is not very good.

M: I wonder why!

C: Urgals like anything in this civilization tend to have a pretty high infant mortality and the males tend to do lots of war-like and stupid things, so they don’t tend to live fairly long on average. If you make it past the first twenty to thirty years, I think an Urgal would have a very good chance of living to be eighty years or maybe even a bit upward of that. I’ve always figured that they have a similar lifespan to humans, except for some of the very largest of them – the Kull – which tend to have, on average, a shorter life span, maybe up in to the sixties or so, just because their sheer size tends to wear on them quite a bit.

M: DragonLover—there’s a lot of R’s there, I’m not going to go for all of them—asked: What happens when a Dragon Rider becomes a Shade, or is that impossible? I think that last time you may have said that that was impossible.

C: Did I?

M: Someone said that you did.

C: Well if I did then I take that back! I think it would be absolutely frackin’ terrifying!

M: So could a dragon—could any creature that can actually think—

C: Read Book 4.

M: Oh jeeze!

C: [Christopher’s evil laugh.]

M: That should be good.

C: It involves Angela, that’s all I will say.

M: Well then, new theories incoming!

  • Skyfire

    Do you think that Angela could have been a shade that has overpowered the spirits that possessed her over time? When Eragon briefly looked into Durza’s mind during their last fight he realized that Casaib still existed whithin Durza. His memories were still there, and upon Eragon accessing them, Durza seemed to show signs of an internal struggle. Angela seemingly has a vast knowledge on a wide range of things. She seems to have an insatiable curiosity that leads me to believe she could have dabbled with sorcery at some point in her long life. If she had been a Shade at some point it would explain her long life and her extra strength that is hinted at by the fact that she won her weapon through combat with a Dwarf that has trained with it his entire life and that she seems entirely unafraid to wield it at every battle. If she had suppressed the spirits within her and become herself again, with the exception that she now harnessed their powers for herself, then she may not bear the marks of the shade and simply look as she did before her possession. The fact that she was a shade would certainly be necessity to be mysterious and secretive. I think all of her wit and riddles are a protective device of hers. She leaves people charmed yet dumbfounded and too confused to press her for more of which, exasperatingly enough, she would just give another riddle as answer if they did. She orchestrates all of this consistently. It seems a very advanced form of manipulation of the humans around her. The wild spirits who aren’t in contact with humans on daily basis use happiness as a defense which they haven’t found need to alter due to the infrequency of its application. However, if Angela had spirits trapped inside her, though overruling them, she may still have some basal instincts seeping through from them. Due to the fact that she is in human form and must interact on long term with humans the spirits had ample opportunity to revise their defense systems, and could have come to the conclusion that confusion is much more effective. Overwhelming confusion negates suspicion. Solembumn probably follows her because of her rarity, and Tenga’s question could be “What is Angela?” Which could be what prompted Angela to leave him and makes her wary when Eragon mentions him. The dragon bones could be from a dragon she killed when the spirits were in control of her. That death could have been the turning point that prompted Angela to overpower the spirits within her. They could be a memento she caries of her freedom.

  • kaylee

    WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOO A SHADE RIDER THAT WOULD BE EPICCC!!!!!!!!

  • Brisingr1

    When is the next book coming out? How many more books will there be?

  • green rider

    I remember there was a point when Angela was looking into the minds of a woman and a teenage girl, and they would not reveal their names to Eragon… Not sure which book but doe anybody else remember that?

  • Ebench44

    Knock it off with the !$#% auto cycling AUDIO adds!!! how the crap am I supposed to listen to the inverview when all I hear is Lysol commercials!!!!!!

  • Julianortega70

    i have a theory that the curesd little girl,i forget her name sorry, will be the next rider.. 1 because of her ability to feel others sufferings, which could possibly be 1 of the answers to defeating Galbatorix besides the eldunari,..2 she already has a dragon mark on her.. 3 possibly by the time the varden get the egg, she could be a full grown woman, leading to my next theory that eragon and her have an epic romance… understand her growth is accelerated lol

  • Ice Sword

    I want to ask Paolini why all the races exept humans are so cool,but it’s not a good enough question…even so,I want to know what he would say about it.

  • H Smethurst

    The last Ra’zac said that Galbatorix had almost found “the name, the true name”. I think Tenga and Galbatorix are looking for the same thing, something pretty big like the true name of magic itself or of Alaglasia or something… But I think that will play a big part in the new book.

    • RiderVrael

      Yeah I believe that to. He thought Eragon knew that question he was looking for so in my opinion it is something that could help Eragon a lot. For all we know it could be the seven words Brom whispered to Eragon right before he died.

      • Anonymous

        has Eragon or Oromis ever mentioned these words since Brom said them? did they ever talk about their importance?

    • THETRUEERAGONLOVER

      i think he eant the true name of murtagh or eragon
      maybe, m not disaprooving your point but expressing my point

    • Anonymous

      the true name to the ancient langauge.? its possible. Oromis said that such a word would have astounding power over anyone who ever used the ancient langauge. i dont think Paolini would have just put that section in there for no reason. plus, Murtagh already told Eragon that Galby knew his and Thorn’s name. so theyre out of the question

  • OMG! XD

    OMG~~! XDDDDD He’s such a neerrd XDDD but he’s OUR nerd :3 and book four is coming out soon!

  • Piratepride5427

    and as for the vault of souls it must be on the doru areba or how ever you spell it.. i am pretty dang sure i’ve gotten this book figured out. not 100% but pretty close. or maybe the vault of soulsis where galbatorix’s dragon was killed buy urgals.. somewhere up north-western region.

  • Piratepride5427

    dude the vault of kuthain is galbatorix’s first dragon’s name! i’m positive! that is why oromis and arya didn’t know where they heard the name because of the banishing of names!!

    • werekitty

      Sorry, but Galby’s first Dragon wasn’t apart of the Banishing of Names. Ayra tells Eragon what the name is in the same chapter as the lillies and spirits. Her reasoning is that “it wasn’t his fault he was killing by urgals” just like the left Shrunkian because “he was brainwashed into serving Galby”

  • SilverScales

    I think that It would be likely that Tenga might have been Shruikan’s original rider, and the answer he is currently looking for may be a way to break the magic Galbatorix placed over Shruikan as a hatchling. THAT or Angela was Shruikan’s rider, and while she gave up searching for the answer to claim Shruikan back from Galby, Tenga did not hence forth why Angela left. Stuff like that would also explain why Angela has been alive for so long and refuses to let people search her memories. Lets face another fact, Angela is an interesting person and all but has anyone ever wondered why Solembum followes her around all the time?

    • That’s pretty interesting! I’ve always been bothered about the role Tenga plays in the story. His chapter really stuck out when I read it.

      • RiderVrael

        Yeah I agree. His apperance in the third book I believe was not just to fill up a chapter, but there is something there we just dont know what yet. Great theory SilverScales.

      • Visitor

        To me, Tenga sort of clicks with Nikola Tesla. In addition, though its probably just coincidence, 5 letters from N is S and 5 letters from G, oddly enough the number 5 is the same number of letters in Tenga’s name. Or maybe I’m just crazy…

    • Skyfire

      I thought that Galbatorix slew Shruikan’s original rider and took him as a hatchling. If that’s right then Tenga could not be.

      • Saphirafan

        Skyfire I think you are exactly right! It does say that Galbotorix slew the rider Shruikan’s original rider.

  • stu

    what if…. shruikan was the green dragon and galby’s black magic tainted it?

  • stu

    what if…. shruikan was the green dragon and galby’s black magic tainted it?

  • stu

    what if…. shruikan was the green dragon and galby’s black magic tainted it?

    • Caleb

      no the green dragon hasn’t hatched

      • RiderVrael

        The green egg is Galby’s last dragon egg. Because Saphira was the first, Thorn the second, so he has one more.

      • RiderVrael

    • Anonymous

      CP did say that dragons could possibly change colors at will. maybe shruikan used to be another color and chose black to represent his inner sadness and depression at being enslaved by galby. and if that’s true then maybe at some point in the story we will see what color he used to be. hmmmmm

    Eh…I say Arya’s the green Dragon Rider. She’s the obvious choice. I just find it very interesting that no one’s ever mentioned whether or not Galbatorix still has the egg or not…especially if the green egg shell was supposed to be a hint.

YO!!

    @Chris Addison: Hmm, thanks… I guess that’s probably right, but I could have sworn that in Eragon or Eldest it said Galbatorix stole a “hatchling.” The only problem is whether Shrukin would hatch for Galbatorix. Although, maybe some trick was involved that made Shurkin hatch.

    No rider rulers! Their shouldn’t be a ruler that much more powerful than normal person and who will live forever. Galbatorix proved that. But I personally would scream if an elf was put in charge. I personally also would scream if the Greenie (if he’s still an egg) hatched for and elf. I hate how the elves think they’re better than everyone else just because they can use magic. (which they seem to not be able to live without)

    Summary: I hate elves.

    @Chris Addison: I am literally reading that part as we speak. It says that Morzan helped him steal a dragon hatchling. At least that is what Brom says when he is speaking with the traders and villagers at Carvahal. Beginning of Eragon.

    @Dennis (Guest): If Angela’s Dragon was stolen as a hatchling, she would not be proficient in the AL. Her training would have just begun and I doubt she would have been taught the way of the riders without her Dragon.

    @Dennis (Guest): She says, “I’ve always had difficulty with that part,” when Eragon is explaining about opening himself up to the flow of magic. She does not mention her proficiency in the Ancient Language.

    Angela can’t be Selena if she is in fact the same person who had visited Ellesmera and is as old as she hints. Since Garrow was Selena’s brother, she could only be around the same age as him, give or take a few years.

    Hey guys, here are my theories:

    I think that the green dragon egg has NOT hatched, but it is not in Gablys possession. I think that Hefring did manage to steal 2 eggs and had actually hid the green one and Galby already knows this, that’s why murtagh is going weird places. From somewhere, maybe
    Tenga, maybe a different source, Eragon finds out about the eggs. Then him and murtagh have a race for the egg, and
    eventually history repeats itself, as
    murtagh and eragon, just like their
    fathers, have big fight for the egg.
    Eragon wins and takes the egg back and
    after a while it hatches for Arya. Eragon and Arya eventually lay the seed “if you catch ma drift”

  • Maco

    @Chris Addison: Thats actually not a bad theory. Do you remember what made it impossible? There are things that could point in that direction such as her (Angela) having the dragon bones. Christopher has hinted that Angela is much more than meets the eye. Also the fact that Solumbum likes Angela, and he also likes Eragon, is interesting. Solumbum clearly doesn’t exclusively like riders, but he certainly pays attention to characters that have especially unique traits.

  • SkySoarer

    I don’t think Angela is evil, but I do think she has her own plans, and may be secretely in league with some elves.

    I think she may be part grey folk, or more likely half elf. CP once said in an interview that half elves have existed, that they are long lived, that they can’t usually reproduce, and that they are very good at blending in with whatever race they choose to. Also, werecats are usually the companians of elves or Kings, which would explain why Solembum keeps company with her.

    As well, the woman whose future Angela told and who Eragon blessed (and who I think is Selena) seemed to know something of what she is about. She told Angela to train hard and strike first. I’m not sure what Angela is training for, but I think it will come out in the next book.

  • Dennis

    Why does everyone keep saying Angela is a spellcaster?? When Eragon was trying to cure Elva he says that the wording is tricky and Angela chimes in with something like…I’ve always had a problem with the Ancient Language so I dont use it…So If she went through rider training dont you think she would have no problems with the AL? She could be a shade who has extremely good self control..or she is a distant relative of the gray folk and she doesnt need to use th AL to use magic…HOWEVER if that was the case she could have come up with someway to cure Eragon

    Anyway whoever/whatever she is I doubt she poses any threat to Eragon Especially with all the elves spellcasters hangin around…now if she did want to kill him for some reason she has had plenty of chances. I do think she is very old and just because Oromis said he met her in Ellesmera once does not mean she is trusted by the elves now. Durring the times of the riders the elves were scattered across alagaesia so Im sure many humans travelled in and out of Ellesmera…Before Galbatorix flipped his lid Im sure the elves were relatively trustworthy

    • werekitty

      She didn’t say that she had problems with the AL she said that she had problems channeling the power. I think her knoweldge of the AL is probably pretty she probably just isn’t a very strong spell caster…kind of like Brom. Either way I still don’t think that she was a Rider

    @rutscbk (Guest): I think that because Angela is based off CP’s sister he wouldn’t make her pure evil. that is one of the reasons i believe selina is Angela. She would have be a very misunderstood character who altho did some evil things ( as all brothers would say their sister has done ) i the end is actually good. I think she faked her own death so that Galby could not take control over her the way Morzan had. Because Morzan was dead she was no longer compelled to stick around. Also as the black hand of Morzan selina would have a very good ability to sneak around much like Angela does multiple times in the books. i think its very unlikely that Angela ends up being totaly evil rather she is Selina or just a completely different character that no one has thought of yet.

    I just wish the 4th book would be out already!!! it’s killing me to wait like this!

    I am reading the series again…….. I have just read the part where Brom tells the story of how Galby came to power and who helped him. He DOES NOT kill Shruiken’s original rider. He kills someone who helped him but he stole the dragon hatchling. I believe the rider of this dragon to be Angela. This is at least one way to explain her knowledge and age. This is also why she was in Ellesmera ( forgive my spelling) and why Oromis saw her their.

    I say the reason why they are taking so long to post the interviews is that CP gave the answer to the title of book 3 and it\’s release. They have been given a date by Random House to release interview. Noctice they seemed to hype up that part 3 would include questions about the title and release. Gave us a teaser when CP said he\’s almost done. Could also be waiting on CP\’s ok to say he\’s done because he was very close to the end and told them to wait till he is finished.

    I just had another look at Eragon\’s Guide to Alagaesia and in it Eragon warns the new rider about a possible attack from the \’unnamed shadow\’. I\’m thinking this unnamed shadow could be one of the forsworn\’s dragons who has survived, and that Galbatorix has been meddling with it somehow, perhaps to cause it to be a shade, or some other horror. It might even be green!

    Anyway, it\’s just a thought.

  • vannet

    I really do belive that angela may have been a former rider…she just knows way tooo much for a “common” spellcaster. In brisingr i think it was, she mentions something along the lines of being around galbatorix’s age or something? if that is the case then what if she was Galby’s lady friend while they were starting out as trainy riders? and then when galby betrayed the riders, he gave her a choice of joining him which she refused and killed her dragon because of it, but spared her cause he still loved her and the dragon bones she caries around are her dead dragons. that would also explain why people wouldnt trust her if they knew that she and galbatorix had a thing going on in the past but the elves would have excepted her because she didnt go along with galbatorix’s plan. idk just a thought

Also Angela is based on his sister lol. And did anyone else see that part in the first interview where CP said Illuminators where often driven blind and think of the blind man Angela mentioned in Eragon?

    As far as Angela being bad…that sounds good to me..I mean she isnt exactly on good terms with the dwarves, she poisoned the empires soldiers and didnt seem to feel bad about it…in fact I think she enjoyed it so she is very spiteful. However she has done ALOT to help the varden and there cause and I doubt Solembum would hang around her if he had a feeling she was up to no good.

    @Ben (Guest): But how could Angela be Selena if she is supposed to have read not only Brom’s, but “her own” fortune (the young woman with whom Solembum conversed is widely speculated to have been Selena)?

    Maybe it has to do with Angela’s bad relations with the werecats? Anyone see a ‘cheep cheep’ connection? Haha, just kidding.

    (i was the last unknown) My brother thinks that Angela and Eragon will get married. I dont think so but why did she mention that she is like- i can’t explain it but when Arya said something about the elves age Angela mention that she lived as long as them!!!??? Anyway i agree that angela is either evil or more important than she really is. In the sneak peak at book four the varden gets allied with the werecats, but for some reason they hate angela. All of them hate angela except for solembun? why is that?

  • Ben

    I believe that Angela is Selina (eragons mother). It would make sense why she is always around because she was taught by Morzan. Also that would explain why she said she would not be accepted in the varden anymore if her secrets were known.

    I also think that the last egg will not hatch in the last book. It would take way to long for the dragon to grow and mature along with its new rider. I think that greeni has already hatched and is mature. I think that it is a wild dragon that Arya somehow convinces to join her. it might be a stretch but these are a few of my ideas. let me know what you think.

  • unknown

    I think Arya is going to be the next dragon rider because her magic is green and she carried Sapphira’s egg. I also think that Arya and Eragon will mate or get married (if they go by human traditions) because Sapphira and the green dragon are destined for each other so Eragon and Arya will spend even more time together

    hey! i happen to like the elves! screw the elves? mot a smart idea if you want elves for enemies! i think it will be Arya. the reason why is because it would bring peace with the races as Eragon is a human/ dwarf/elf. all the races get a fair share of the dragon riders.

    I honestly think the next rider is Ayra.

    cp said the next rider is in all books

    Ayra- very well trained, still young 4 elves, knows very well of the dragons, green eyes green magic

    Roran- eragon and roran talk how imortality wil lbe cruel for a mortal spouse so katrina will die and Roran will keep living making him misarble

    Orik- he is king, no bound was made with the drarwfs

    Elva- maybie, but she has a evil tone

    Angela- too old i doubt she will go there

    Ok say eragon 1 isnt in the vault of souls…lets say that the green dragon IS though…what if galby caught a wild dragon before they were all killed and he is keeping him in case something happens to shruikan?

    Roran and Jeod are sent on a mission to recover the 3rd egg..if i recall correctly, nasuada wanted these two to go on a mission sometime in Brisingr, but Roran says he needs to get married first?? greeni hatches for arya.. arya and eragon go to find the vault of souls..eldunari within trains greeni and saphira and join forces with the two dragon riders.. elves fight,varden fights…we are closer to Uru’ Baen now.. greeni is quite grown up now as it had entire book 4 and the eldunari to help it along.. eragon fights galby..ends up in vroengard and gets tortured..arya comes to the rescue again.. murtagh betrays galby..and we have a 3 against one fight!! galby loses..eragon departs from alagesia to hide all eldunari forever..arya and eragon and the last 2 dragons leave LOTR style.

    I\’m beginning to get a creeping suspicion that Angela is evil. She has mentioned several times that if she revealed her secrets she would be exiled at best (Around the time Blodgarm, his elves and Eragon and Arya were returning to the Varden, in Brisingr.). Also, CP mentioned in this last interview that Angela has something to do with a rider becoming a shade.

    It is my personal belief that Angela WAS a rider, but lost her dragon, or was someone of high importance (such as Selena), and now she\’s in hiding, under an assumed name. Which could be one of the reasons that Oromis found her familiar.

  • justafan

    Someone (I have no idea who) said what if Galbatorix doesn’t have the egg and the guy who stole the eggs just took it to Ellesmera. Well I find the Ellesmera part very unlikely but who said he gave it to the elves? If he stole from the Varden it’s not likely that he would just give it to the elves. He probably would have taken it and hid it somewhere. Who knows, maybe it hatched and is fully grown with a rider who has already figured out how to use magic.

    One other thing: am I the only one who is bugged by the fact that (especially in Book 1) how almost no one would answer Eragon’s question fully and completely? He’s a rider, he needs to know things!

  • kpkelley

    @Saerina (Guest):There are other reasons to search for secret entrances into the cities and strongholds of the empire, like perhaps a \\\”special forces\\\” mission or for spying, etc. I believe that Islandzadi is well aware of the egg, but either the egg has already hatched secretly or is being kept secret so the elves have a back-up plan should their current endeavor fail. Islanzadi does not completely trust the Varden, and would look to take measure to protect themselves against the other races.

    @kpkelly
    I really don’t think that theory is correct for these reasons: 1. you know how that in B3 that Joed is looking for a secret entrance into one of the cities? well I think that they would steal the green dragon egg. 2. I think that if the dragon egg was taken to Ellesmera that Queen Islanzadi (did I spell that right?) would have taken the egg and given it to Arya – to ferry between the Varden and Elves.-

  • justafan

    Here’s a theory I made up for fun. PLEASE NOTE: I do not think this will happen and I will be dissapointed if it did. It’s just for fun!

    So in Book 4, they’re doing random stuff, and somehow Arya gets captured. (Which proves that she is weak and deserves to die.) Well naturally she is taken to Galby, but after a while she falls in love with him. (Another point: she’s an idiot.) She gives him information to storm the elves (traitor!!!) and they are about to go ambush the “perfect” elves. But, the night before they set out, she finally sees the light so to speak and kills Galbatorix. (Murtagh is now free.) But as she deals the death stroke, she remembers their love and is mad that she killed him. So she proceeds with the attack on the elves. Naturally since they are not expecting an attack from the daughter of their queen, they are all killed. (YAY!! The elves are gone!!!!) However, Murtagh is now free to do as he wishes and since he was never evil, he returns to the Varden. They eventually accept him and they plan an attack on Arya. (She has some control over the Eldunari, but not as much as Galbatorix had.) They fight and unimportant people die and finally some of them confront Arya. (These people are Eragon, Murtagh, Saphira, Thorn, Roran, Nasuada, and Orik.) They fight and Arya holds them off for a little while until Orik somehow kills her. (DOUBLE YAY!!!) They all return happily to the main Varden camp. Saphira and Thorn fall in love but Eragon is jealous of them. (Fancy that.) So he decides to kill Thorn. But Saphira stops him. Now he has Murtagh, Thorn, and Saphira against him. Thorn and Murtagh kill Eragon. But Saphira kills Thorn. And then Murtagh kills Saphira. However, Roran kills Murtagh because, well, he’s Eragon’s cousin. But then Nasuada is mad at Roran because she was in love with Murtagh. Then Katrina tries to kill Nasuada and the whole Varden split in half (one side for Nasuada, one for Katrina) and they kill each other out. However, the dwarves backed out of this fight so they are left. The sweep through Alagaesia killing anyone but dwarves. Everyone who is left (dwarves) live happily ever after is an awesome land of dwarves!!!! Can you tell who I like and don’t like? Anyway, that is a random theory that I know will not happen so don’t start arguing about how unrealistic it seems. The truth is, I know it is unrealistic and would be completely dissapointing.

Everyone who is left (dwarves) live happily ever after is an awesome land of dwarves!!!! Can you tell who I like and don’t like? Anyway, that is a random theory that I know will not happen so don’t start arguing about how unrealistic it seems. The truth is, I know it is unrealistic and would be completely dissapointing.

    Bingo, rustcbk.

    My theory about the eggs has always been that Hefring stole all three. He then fled to Du Weldenvarden and entrusted them with the green egg and then proceeded to the Varden with the other two at which time he was intercepted by Morzan. Morzan magically sends Thorn\’s egg back to Galbatorix saying it was the only one recovered and keeps Saphira\’s egg for himself. He knows Saphira is the only female egg, and so the most valuable. He is then killed by Brom.

    in my point of view, the green dragon has yet to hatch and is still with galbatorix, hopefully though, Elva will die because I never liked her.

    Here is a new theory for you…well kinda a revised theory…Eragon 1 is still alive..I like this and here are my reasons..

    He is hanging bloody and in shackles on Vroengaurd in the Rock of Kuthian…He is constantly being tortured by someone hence the wierd sounds of creatures that haunt the island…In the vault along with him is his green dragon…I believe the green dragon is already hatched because well lets face facts…the remaining things needed to be covered in the book are only going to take a month or two TOPS and that simply isnt enough time for a dragon to learn how to fight….not to mention it probably wont be able to carry a rider at 2 months….Sure they could use magic to make him bigger but he would still have the mind of a hatchling…and why would CP have a baby dragon hatch just to be killed over a stupid mistake?….Doesnt make sense to me…

    The rock of kuthian sounded familiar to Oromis and Arya when Eragon asked them but niether could remember where they heard it…Does this sound familiar to anyone? The same thing happend to the forsworn\’s dragons remember…

    Galby captured Eragon I and his dragon…trapped them in the Vault created a spell similar to the one the dragons made…(Similar, not the same because he doesnt think of every possibility) So this spell makes everyone whoever knew about the rock of kuthian suddenly forgets about it…Werecats are excluded because galby doesnt think of them, and Eragon is excluded because he didnt kno about it…

    So WHY would Galby want to have Eragon I locked in a vault??

    Well one could argue that he wants the dragons eldunari…It would be HUGE and extremely powerful, but then he could just kill them and take it right? So that leads me to believe that Eragon 1\’s dragon is female possibly…and he is trying to discover their true names (beacause nobody knows anything about them because they are eons old)…or that because Galby has killed almost everyone Old enough to know the origins of the ancient language he is constantly trying to break the mind of Eragon 1 and get any info he may have…I like that one more because the razac said he almost has the name…so maybe eragon 1 knows the name and is almost broken…

    And before anyone says well why not just use the name of the ancient language to free himself and kill galby…well I\’ve thought of that and I think galby would have placed wards on the vault to prevent magic use inside it

    Just to further back up that the vault of souls contains Eldunari would be that the chapter in which Eragon and Saphira learn of the Eldunari is called “Souls of Stone” not “Hearts of Stone”. Maybe Glaedr does know Galbatorix’s true name and Eragon will learn it but by Eragon speaking his true name to the Vault of Souls Galbatorix will learn Eragon’s true name also.

    number two well no shist they’ll go to uru’baen and uru’baen and illreia (cant spell)

    and the elves probably want attack teirm because why would they take the time to go over there just to take a few cities. after the battle in Gil’ead, they’ll most likely march straght to uru’baen rather than tramp across alagaesia just to take 1 or 2 cities

    I haven’t read any of the other pages of comments, so what I say may be redundant.
    First off, I’d like to concur that James’ theory is indeed a good one. Paolini did say that Brom didn’t know the whole story, so it’s quite possible that Hefring did get two eggs.

    I would also like to thank Mike, Chris, Robert, and the rest of the group for an excellent interview. Very good questions selected, and I loved it every time he said “no comment”.
    I can say without a doubt that of all the interviews of any kind with Paolini to date, this one is the best. It gives rise to great theories, and it forced him to give some things away. I.E., all the times he said “no comment”.

    Thanks again, guys, and bring on the next one.

    @Rahul (Guest):

    Not wanting to shoot your theories down mate, but come on really? We all know that Arya hates Murtagh for what he did to Oromis, and how he has treated Eragon. I think most of the fans would also be pissed at CP for making that twist if it did exist. Plus since when was Arya close to Murtagh? Was it him that killed Durza? Was it him that helped her kill Vraugh (sp?)? Eragon was always there for her and if CP made a big twist like that something drastic would have to change like say, Eragon deciding to kill Arya’s mother and then join Galby. Again this would never happen.

    my theory like some other peoples is that the vault of souls is dragon eldunari. the reason why is: because the name The Vault of Souls says: humans don’t have hearts like dragons. they die when they die, same as all the other races such as elves, ra’zac, dwarves, and such and such. dragons are the only race that can still live after their body dies. my other thoughts are that Glaedr might know about Galbatorix’s true name. it wouldn’t apply to him as he is in his eldunari and can’t be killed easly. I also think (sorry for the long post) that Eragon will not know Galbatorix’s true name when he fights him. it wouldn’t be good for the climax and eragon would just die from the spell. thats my thoughts, please tell me if i am wrong. but fight it with logic please.

    Hey guys, these are my theories. 
     
    I think that the green dragon egg has NOT hatched, but it is not in Gablys possession. I think that Hefring did manage to steal 2 eggs and had actually hid the green one and Galby already knows this, that’s why murtagh is going weird places. From somewhere, maybe Tenga, maybe a different source, Eragon finds out about the eggs. Then him and murtagh have a race for the egg, and eventually history repeats itself, as murtagh and eragon, just like their fathers, have big fight for the egg. Eragon takes the egg back and after a while it hatches for Arya. 

    Those are my predictions.

    i have a question and a thought, since CP said that the continent of aligasia extends much further to the east, is it possible that some of the wild dragons fled that direction to survive, not that dragons would flee in fear but perhaps with a desire to preserve there species. i also have to wonder if when the riders were in power if the lands that were under their protection extended very much further in that direction. or if any of the races in the story explored in that direction or if they didn’t have a need to so they dont know what is over there.

    well….the theory of the last egg hatched has been put in here with lot of logical points and reasoning..and they are all right in there respective ways…
    but to think the other way may not be wrong i.e. the last egg is still in possession of Galbatorix…my reasons for long book are as follows:

    1. Christopher said that the book will be huge…so if the egg is already hatched it will cut out 50-60 pages of varden planning and stealing the egg.

    2. Eragon has to visit Illirea and uru’baen in order to free the eldunari’s in galbatorix possession as nasuada ordered him to do only that from now on..in the last chapter, moreover Joed is also looking for loopholes in uru’baen and Illirea.

    3. werecats are to be introduced.

    4. Murtagh and Thorn’s relationship and their thoughts and other will be explored.

    5. Varden’s fight in belatona and Dras-Leona, Elves fight in Teirm and Kuasta(maybe).

    6. Duru Aracba and Vroengard to be explored.

    7. Angela’s mysterious character to be explored.

    8. the last dragon and dragonrider’s training or whatever is to be done for them to get fit for the battle.

    9. Other areas of the alagaesia i.e. Illium, Uden, Bertland, Nia etc. to be explored.

    well..sorry for the long post but had to explain my theories…hope u counter it with ur theories cause this is all speculation.

    @ChestershireCat (Guest): you have a good point, i spose that as long as murtag didn’t stray to far while looking for it he could freely extend his mind in search for the contiousness of the egg, because he wouldn’t have to worry about magicians in the empire like eragon would, and he could search a large amount of space without arising suspitoin.

    i have to say that is also a well thought out explination.

    @convertedmoviefan (Guest):

    Kudos to you for a well thought out and explained theory.

    I believe Murtagh may be searching for it, possibly at night. He may be making stops while doing errands for Galbatorix. This would not raise suspicions and therefor the quickest agent of Galbatorix’s now is Murtagh. And we hardly saw him during his training. Galbatorix would definitely keep Murtagh looking, even on his errands.

    I agree though, he probably has other people searching as well.

    I also agree that he does NOT want the Varden knowing that he lost the last egg. And honestly, he didn’t want anyone knowing about Saphira too.

    However, I still believe Murtagh is looking for it. He is swift, and has the power to teleport it directly back to Galbatorix.

    Just a lil.. i dunno, a theory?:

    What if “the vault of souls” is actually a metaphor. What if the vault of souls are actually elduari. Could perhaps the true names of the eldunari have changed? and when eragon speaks through to the eldunari, they turn on murtagh, because they wudnt be bound by their true names??

    @ChestershireCat (Guest): if you think about it, the time span in brisingr really isn’t that long, the book opens a couple of days after the battle of the burning plains, and it takes eragon approximately a week to get back to the varden which he spends 3 days there, over the course of this time Murtag is spotted searching for eragon and at the battle where he attempts to capture him again, there also we must consider the time he spends with galby being punished for his failures in the background of the story, afterward he is spotted by varden spies heading north to confront the elves, over this time eragon travels on his mission nasuada sent him on which takes i think 5 days or so to arrive and another few to accomplish after which he flies to Du’weldonvarden which takes him 4 days he then spends two there and flies for a few more back which puts the time span of the book at somewhere close to a month during which murtag’s movements are watched close enough to tell us that his time is spent traveling between galby’s castle and battles on ether side of the empire. to we also learn that the varden spies are watching closely to see the movements of murtag and if he were searching for the egg he would be spotted traveling to areas that have nothing to do with the war, this of course would rouse the vardens suspicion as to what he is doing.

    this however doesn’t eliminate the possibility that the third egg was stolen with saphira’s and hidden somewhere, or that galby has had agents looking for it, but galby wouldn’t want to alert the varden to the fact that he is searching for something so he wouldn’t have a easily recognizable agent like murtag searching for it.

    sorry for the long post but it took a lot to explain how i came to the conclusion i did. also i would like to say i don’t think the last egg not being in galby’s possession is impossible in fact i think its a good idea it would make for a good twist in the story especially if the varden stumble upon it in their campaign to take down galby.

    I´m sure Greeny has already hatched.
    Why? Lets think about what we know about 4thbook.
    Eragon has lots of things to do, learn to use glaerd´s eldunari, find de vault of souls, fight with the vardens and find a way to fight Murtagh (or avoid this fight) and Galby.
    And we know he hasn´t much time, Galby is near to find the thrue name of de ancient language. If they have to wait to steal the egg, find a rider for greeny nd wait he grow up and learn to fight….its impossible

    I like to think greeny´s rider is Selena. She lived there, was loyal to de varden, or to broom, and was a dangerous woman, the black hand of Morzan. Nobody saw her dead and she was in the three books.
    If Selena ir thhe rider, it make sense that Galby wanted to hide it….

    @stefanov (Guest):

    Well, like I said, dragons are capable of incredible magic. When Saphira was in the egg, she hatched for Eragon because she knew the danger she was in. Maybe the green dragon knew the same, but was able to hatch.

    Maybe, at this point in time, Galbatorix was more worried about Saphira’s egg because she was the only female. Or maybe he didn’t realize until after Hefring was already dead or something…

    true but if morzan would have captured greeny, and gave it to galby, than galby would use it for battles and stuff.

    and if the egg hatched whil hefring was gone, to whom he hatched? cause eggs only hatch if they are touched by a destined rider

    and werent all the riders children when a egg hatched for them? eragon was just a few months before 16, so hewas still a child. and in the book humans turn into adults when they are 16. and i doubt that the varden would hire a child.
    does anybody know when elves turn into adults? because when that happends at the age of 100, its impossible for arya to become the rider of the green egg

    I’m still more for Hefring hiding the egg, then leaving to hide Saphira somewhere else, and the green egg hatching while he was gone.

    Murtagh is rarely seen in the books. He comes in for one big battle, and then he goes missing for weeks, unless he is barely glimpsed on the horizon. He isn’t off battling all the time. Days and weeks pass in the books without any mention of Murtagh.

    In book 3, for example, this is how often we see Murtagh:

    ~Seen on Horizon while Eragon is with Dwarves.
    ~Seen by Eragon on Horizon while coming back to Varden.
    ~Battle before Roran’s wedding.
    ~Last battle in book.
    ~Mentioned as making Lady Lorana swear vows,

    See? Five times in almost a 900 page book. What’s he doing the rest of the time?

    Also, I agree that the egg fragment is new. When Eragon is in the cave, he noticed old, colorless scales and egg fragments, yet the green one was the only thing of color.

  • convertedmoviefan

    i honestly think that if the egg shell in the cave is recent in the story line it is a wild dragon, if galby had murtag out searching for the a egg there would be evidence of it, like murtag wouldn’t be engaging in so many battles, and the varden’s spise would have noticed and reported on murtag’s movements if he was to wander away from current battles.

    second the person the varden recruted to steal the eggs was a man, thus he wouldn’t have been old enough to have been one of the few humans who are welcome in du’weldonvarden, therefore he wouldn’t have been able to get to the cave in the middle of the forest, he would have been discovered by the elves and the eggs would have been taken from him.

    it would however make a little since if he had stolen the other egg and hid it somewhere in the empire, and that theory has merit. and could be explored further, it would then make since if the varden or the elves happened upon it and it hatched for someone in the rebellion. this would provide a twist and an escape root for CP so that he didn’t have to discribe just how eragon or someone in the varden or the elves would be able to steal the egg.

    third, for those of you who think angela would be involved in the creation of a shade. aka helped make one, this is purposturous do you not remember just how she responded to eragon cursing elva hello if she thought that was a vile thing to do what makes you think she would particapate in imprisoning spirits in a creature. this does not make since in her morel character. i believe that she has mostlikely been present when a creature that wasn’t human was turned into a shade, or that a wercat becomes a shade somehow, perhaps even selombome.

    honestly i hate debunking peoples theories, so it would be nice if you people would think about what your writing before you post it, i would much rather discuss theories that have merit. i dont wish to be rude but just think about what your saying please some of these theories are just to outragous or missinformed to even come close to being possible.

    p.s. i have a small theoretical thought that cinda combines this part of the interview with that last, do you think its possible that eragon is captured at Doru Areba maybe by a Gordian of the island who is unaware of the events taking place in the rest of aligasia. what if eragon travels there in search of something and gets captured there?

    No, a dragon doesn’t die when its’ Rider does. The movie messed that up. And we know Saphira had to fend for herself while young because Eragon couldn’t be with her all the time.

    but we still dont know hte color of galby’s third egg. it could be every color.
    the green dragon could aslo be of a wild dragon,
    or one of the last female dragon has given her last egg to somebody to saveguard it and it will hatch to somebody who knows that dude

    @Stef:

    Possible, but Morzan caught up with Hefring before Brom did, and Morzan obviously killed him for stealing the egg in the first place.

    Either way, the green dragon is possibly now wild. Since it wouldn’t have had long to bond with Hefring anyways. And, Hefring was mentioned in all three books.

  • ChestershireCat

    Well, dragons can produce magic. What if Hefring actually got two eggs and hid the one in the cave for himself later? Then the dragon realized what peril it was in, like Saphira when she was alone, only this one hatched. Hefring may have wanted to sell the egg back to galbatorix, or sell it as a gem. We never know. All we know is that he fled from the varden too, maybe to find a safe spot for the green one…

    I think Galbatorix wouldn’t want Eragon to know that two eggs were stolen. If indeed Eragon knew, then he’d start looking for it too. By keeping it a secret, Galbatorix can have just Murtagh look for it without Eragon getting in the way. This way he’ll have a higher chance of retrieving it and thus making the side unequal again. Also, Galbatorix wouldn’t want the world to know that he lost two eggs. It would make him appear weak.

    P.S, thank gods he was banned. 😛

    I’m not sure that Tenga would be the first Eragon. Eragon has seen a picture of him that the dwarves had, and even though Eragon 1 may have changed his likeness to look human, I think Eragon might have recognised him as he did Arya. I could be wrong of course.

    @shanks (Guest):
    but what if Tenga was 1st eragon, but the reason he didnt help in the fall of the riders was due to his own grief with losing his dragon, brom said you go crazy, if not die your self, after a lose of a dragon… 2ndly, he might not want any one to know he is/was a rider, he has had his share of war, and just wishes to live in peace, Or maybe the answer he is seeking is the means to end this war?

    but prob he is a grey folk, as well as Angela.
    but its nice to think he is 1st… it would add a nice twist to it, even better if he dosent even remember being the rider, blocking things out ie him being a rider, the death of his dragon and such… and for a rider who is so distinguished, why is there no written recored of his death? does that not arouse you suspicion as to why?? maybe is is in the VOS or, went to a different land, we may know, we may never know…

    as for the egg, i thought when been past that for a while. 😉

    My thoughts on the green egg fragment. It might be possible that the elves are hiding a wild dragon. Just to keep it a secret from Galby, not as a way to fight him but a means to help the dragons. They hid Oromis and Glader from everyone after all. It might be possible that one wild dragon hid one of her eggs there while Galby was destroying the riders and the wild dragons, knowing the elves love dragons and would do anything to protect it.

    first of all people are getting too hyped up about CPs comments…

    firstly a dragon cannot be a shade cuz it cannot summon spirits. secondly when CP mentioned the possibility of a shade rider which involved Angela, i feel that he was playing us by making us think that she is a rider. If she was, Brom would have known about it and through him the Varden. what CP meant would be that Angela foretold the future of a rider whose dragon would die a horrible death and comes true. the rider would have become a shade in his madness to kill her.

    thirdly tenga cannot be eragon I cuz CP has not mentioned anything abt him during the fall n a distiguished rider like him would never not fight the war that threatens the extinction of the riders. I feel he must be the descendant of one of the grey folk n has a large role to play.

    @abrima (Guest):
    I believe anything is possible, i highly doubt Angela was a rider, or will be the next rider. Yet there are interesting facts, but like she said, she likes to be where things are taking place, so it very well could mean she happen to be in a place where a wild dragon has died, or even a rider and dragon, if your getting into speculating maybe she is one of the grey folk (not elf nor human, but powerful like the elfs)
    b4 i thought that Tenga might be the first eragon, i thought he was prob a grey folk, if Angela is grey folk as well, it would explain why he taught her, IF tanga is the 1st eragon, that could explain how she was able to get the dragon bones, and if she is grey folk, she prob has a long life span, and could have very well of been around since the rise of the riders, and possibly even known the first eragon, but, being that she is into wich craft and herbs, and she has been to the land of the elves, and been around dwarfs and things alike, she knows the history of the rise and fall of the riders, which could be how she took notice to eragons name. she could aslo have made the connection of eragons mother visiting her, and eragon him self visiting her…
    side note, maybe the werecat hangs with her cause she ISNT human, she is greyfolk, 😉

    Hi everyone! I have my own thoughts. They may even be “reaching”, but they came to me and I will just put them out there. 🙂 As much as I would LIKE Arya to be the next rider think it is Angela. A few reasons why I think this: 1) She had knucklebones of a dragon, but wont say where she got them AND she knows the ancient language. 2) When asked how old she is, she never really says anything except that she’s much older than she looks. 3) Solembaum obviously likes being with her although he is able to do as he pleases – Maud the werecat in Ellesmera doesn’t understand “why” he should choose to stay close to a human – perhaps, with the shapeshifting abilities and/or magic, Solembaum is really a dragon himself? He and Saphira have formed a sort of “bond” in Tronjheim (so who’s to say?) 4) Angela ALWAYS likes to be where the action is. When she came from Teirm to Tronjheim, she said the twins would not not DARE to inspect her thoughts for fear of what she might do, as well as “sensing a return of the past in Alagaesia.” Maybe she’s one of the very first riders? Older than Brom even? When Eragon told her his name in Book 1, her eyes widened – she knew exactly who he was named after. Like I said, I’m probably wrong, but would like to hear your thoughts on it anyway! (Sorry – the post is longer than I intended!)

    I hate how in these interviews whenever someone asks something remotely close to giving away plot points CP says READ BOOK 4. WELL FINISH BOOK 4 so we can. I guarantee every inheritance fan would rather be reading book 4 than another crappy interview about it. So try not to sound so Smug and just say NO COMMENT and finish the book already.

    eragon did ask it in brisingr when he went to ellesmera…but oromis avoided it saying its dark magic..and it would take a lot of time…and eragon finally had to settle with thing transporting magic…..
    and with level of curiosity eragon has….he would have definitely asked for rider or dragon shade if they proceeded with that lesson…

    well….the green egg fragments Christopher laughed about may be just Green egg fragments i.e. old remains…nothing to do with any new rider of any wild dragon..etc….because at that time ..even in blood oath ceremony there was only one free rider except oromis and that was eragon..as the dragons said while changing him…thats its our gift to you as the whole fate of alagesia rests on you…something like that cant rem. exactly…but its from the chapter of dragon’s gift from eldest…

    @PrettyBullet: that is homsestly a brilliant theory! I never thought of that, actually the first eragon is captured. Great thinking. The only problem I see in that is the first eragon will probably turn out to be immensely strong making it hard to e captured. But still great theory

    i have suddenly a crazy thought: galby knows the word of the ancient language itself, because when eragon #2 kills the ra-zac, the final one says that he almost knows the name. and i think it’s the name of the ancient language

    and that shall be the reason that eragon will kill galby: because when he is batteling with galby, eragon is at the winning side, so galby utters that word and so he will kill himself.
    just a theory xd

    This theory really has nothing to do with the others here but I was thinking about true names and i have been reading Eldest again and have just realised something. The white raven (can’t remember his name) say Wyrda a lot and the first time Eragon hears it he shivers. I looked up Wyrda in the Ancient language and it says the transtation is Fate so i’m just thinking that maybe this is Eragon’s true name

    but i would wonder how galby found him to imprison him, i would think he is more along the lines in the VOS protecting it, or traped..
    other thoughts on him, is that maybe tenga is the 1st eragon, and the question is his looking for is possibly the true name for the elves language, possible the same thing that Galby is searching for.. just my thought on that… 😉

    Accepted! and yes, i agree with you! 😉

    here’s some food for thought for ya 😉

    the possible location of the VoS..

    think it might be the Dwarfs Precious Heart of hearts stone?? (cant remember the name @ this point in time) you know the one Arya and Shaphiera broke? (again sorry on spelling)
    I know they cherish it cause of its beauty, and the fact that it took one dwarf sooooo many years of hard labor to make. what better hiding place can you think of that would be as well protected as that stone? Im not talking about being there as a hole (other wise the hearts would have skatered every where when broken) but kinda like a portal of some sort? that only workes “when eragon speaks his true name” and noted that the dwarfs prob have NOOOO idea that thats what it is… Just my thoughts on the VOS location.

    any way, have a good day, i will be mia for about two days, so dont expect me to comment back today or tomorrow (maybe tomorrow night?) but if you respound i will go back threw and read it 😉

    i’ve got a theory about the first eragon: is it possible that the first eragon is still alive, but he is trapped by galby in the fault of souls? and that he wil be freed after the 2nd eragon says his name?

    Comic-Con Interview with Christopher Paolini – Part 2
    Written by Mike Macauley at 1:55 am 113 Comments
    Part two of our exclusive interview with Christopher Paolini from Comic-Con International has finally arrived! We sat down with Christopher and threw nearly every good question we received in an over-thirty-five-minuteinterview. The interview has been broken into three parts and we are excited to share part two with you now. Part one created quite the level of buzz with Christopher Paolini’s revelation that Eragon is currently being held captive, restrained by manacles, by an unknown enemy in the Book 4 manscript. Theinterview continues to not disappoint in a very revealing part two! This portion of our interview touches on a number of interesting subjects: the deaths of Oromis and Glaedr, the presumed deaths of the original Eragon and his dragon, confirmation Arya’s training from Oromis, Du Weldenvarden’s anti-scrying wards, dragon eggs and their destined Riders, details on a could-have-been bond between Murtagh and Saphira, green egg shell fragments, Alagaesia’s physical size, heart of hearts hive minds and email, phantoms, the dragon thief, lifespan of an Urgal, dragon shades, and more!
    List of questions asked in part two:

    * Had Oromis not had a seizure, could he have captured or killed Murtagh?

    * Will you ever go into greater detail on the presumed deaths of the first Eragon and his own dragon?

    * When Oromis taught Eragon how to draw energy from the surroundings to make spells, he said that this “was a secret for the Riders”. However, the boat made of grass by Arya draws energy from the surroundings to fly. How did she know a spell reserved for Riders?

    o Now can you say how much training she would have received from Oromis?

    * In Eldest, Eragon, Saphira, Arya and the rest of the gang were traveling to Ellesmera when Eragon’s necklace, which was imbued with a spell to ward off scrying went off while they were in Du Weldenvarden. How is this possible when the wards the elves erected prevent all magical items, thoughts, andspells from entering its boundaries?

    * The spell on a dragon egg means that a dragon egg would only hatch for its destined Rider. What happens if that destined Rider is killed before he is able tobond with the dragon hatchling?

    o Do you believe that there is anyone else that is currently living in Alagaësia alongside Eragon, not necessarily whom he knows, that Saphira would have hatched for?

    * In Eldest, Eragon steps past or on a green egg fragment. Is this a hint?

    * What is the physical size of Alagaesia is in comparison to a land mass on Earth?

    * Can multiple dragon hearts of hearts communicate with each other?

    o Do they have to be in the same area?

    * If you were a fan, what would you ask Christopher?

    * You said that strange phantoms lived in Doru Areba; can you describe those phantoms and do any speaking races that we haven’t encountered thus far live there?

    * Will we ever learn why the thief was only able to steal one dragon egg from Urû’baen?

    * What is the average lifespan of an Urgal?

    * What happens when a Dragon Rider becomes a Shade, or is that impossible? I think that last time you may have said that that was impossible.

    Comic-Con Interview Part 2 – Audio:

    Favorite quote from the interview: “It’s just a green egg fragment. Why would you think that was a hint? Oh, because there’s a green dragon on the front of the book? Oh, that… No comment.”

    Transcript of Part 2
    Remember, you can listen to the actual audio from the interview in the audio player above!

    Mike Macauley: Phoenix asked, “Had Oromis not had a seizure, could he have captured or killed Murtagh?”

    Christopher Paolini: There’s no doubt in my mind that Oromis and Glaedr vastly, vastly out-class Murtagh and Thorn in terms in sheer size when it comes to the dragons, and sheer skill when it comes to magic and sword fighting. Of course, Murtagh had the advantage of a great number of dragons’ Eldunari – the heart of hearts – feeding his strength, so assuming Galbatorix had not interfered, Oromis would – I think – have at least held his own, and I think there was at least a good chance that he might have beaten and captured or killed Murtagh and Thorn.

    M: Will you ever go into greater detail on the presumed deaths of the first Eragon and his own dragon?

    C: No comment.

    M: Well that was easy. When Oromis taught Eragon how to draw energy from the surroundings to make spells, he said that this “was a secret for the Riders”. However, the boat made of grass by Arya draws energy from the surroundings to fly. How did she know a spell reserved for Riders?

    C: Arya is a special case; she was given guardianship over Saphira’s egg for almost twenty years and I think she would have been—I think Oromis would have taught her this to help her protect Saphira’s egg. I mean, there was no playing around here; this was do-or-die with Saphira protecting her egg and everything and that’s something he would have taught her.

    M: Now can you say how much training she would have received from Oromis?

    C: I think Arya has a level of training far exceeding Eragon’s quite honestly, mainly because she has had far more time to learn and just the fact that she grew up with the ancient language means that she is always going to be more facile and fluent with it than Eragon and more adept at thinking up interesting ways of using the ancient language and thusspells.

    I would not want to be on her bad side, let’s put it that way.

    M: Yeah, I think she’s shown that at a few points now. She does not seem like she is a good person to mess with. JD[bunchofnumbers] – there’s a lot of numbers there – asked, “In Eldest, Eragon, Saphira, Arya and the rest of the gang were traveling to Ellesmera when Eragon’snecklace , which was imbued with a spell to ward off scrying went off while they were in Du Weldenvarden. How is this possible when the wards the elves erected prevent all magical items, thoughts, andspells from entering its boundaries?”

    C: That’s a really good question. That is a great question! And I did think of it… it’s… my thought on that was a little complicated so bear with me. I think that scrying isn’t necessarily an intrusive process, although I’m sure that the elves’ wards would have been set up to prevent it. The like their secrecy. But I also thought that even if—let’s say that Galbatorix was trying to scry on Eragon—no, no it was Murtagh I believe. If Murtagh is trying to scry on Eragon, the spell is directed at Eragon and the spell is going to expend a certain amount of energy. That energy would have to be blocked or dissipated from some source otherwise Murtagh would have been able to see Eragon. I figured that both the wards surrounding Du Weldenvarden and Eragon’snecklace activated at the same time; they were both doing the same purpose. So if Eragon didn’t have the necklace , he still would have been protected as long as he was in the forest, but since that process was happening at that point he felt the draining of the energy as hisnecklace performed its allotted task.

    M: Good answer!

    C: It’s a little complicated. I did think of it though!

    M: Another question from Sal: The spell on a dragon egg means that a dragon egg would only hatch for its destined Rider. What happens if that destined Rider is killed before he is able tobond with the dragon hatchling?

    C: Actually, one second – before I answer that, let me go back to the previous question. It isn’t impossible to scry into Du Weldenvarden because if you remember, in the beginning of Brisingr, Eragon did scry with Queen Islanzadí.

    M: I thought that was just a scrying dish only made for that?

    C: Yes, that’s because there are loopholes set up that the elves can use that lets them communicate in and out of the forest essentially. But it’s not one-hundred percent impossible. I don’t think any outsider would know the way to get through the wards but it isn’t one-hundred percent impossible.

    The question about the dragon eggs and who they hatch for… when I say that there’s people destined to become a Dragon Rider, the person destined is the person that that dragon chooses to be their Rider and the person that that dragon feels is appropriate for them. If Eragon had died, or had not found Saphira’s egg—if someone else had—I think that Saphira might have gone another hundred years in that egg but she would have found someone else to hatch for.

    So there’s not only one person in all of eternity, although I think that in all of eternity there is probably a small handful of people that Saphira would ever hatch for, but certainly at that time and everywhere else, Eragon was the one who she felt right for and so she chose him.

    M: Do you believe that there is anyone else that is currently living in Alagaësia alongside Eragon, not necessarily whom he knows, that Saphira would have hatched for?

    C: That’s a really tricky question. You know, I think she might have hatched for Murtagh honestly, if Murtagh had been of his own free will and—

    M: I think that speaks volumes for Murtagh before Galbatorix got his hands on him.

    C: Exactly. I think she—well obviously she wouldn’t have hatched for Arya, she had plenty of chance. [Chuckles] But also, I think one of the reasons she did hatch fro Eragon is because she was vaguely aware of what was going on with Arya and the fact that Durza had attacked her and Saphira was now out on her own, in an egg in the middle of the forest, and she was incredibly vulnerable and dangerous. I think quite honestly, Saphira didn’t want to go back to Galbatorix and was at that point, after almost one hundred years in the egg, was willing to give it a shot.

    M: It must get boring, you know?

    C: Yeah! Well, I always figured that the dragon in the eggs are almost in a state of suspended animation for a bit.

    M: Frozen?

    C: Yeah, a little sluggish.

    M: Here’s a good dragon egg question – this has been bugging me for quite some time, especially as I was writing the Almanac. We may have asked it, I don’t recall. In Eldest, Eragon steps past or on a green egg fragment. Is this a hint?

    C: [Long pause.] No. [Tone of sarcasm] It’s just a green egg fragment. Why would you think that was a hint? Oh, because there’s a green dragon on the front of the book? Oh, that… No comment.”

    What the heck. I really hope he was just screwing with us for that answer. If Arya isn’t the rider, I may just have to kill a b1tch.

    And As for the people saying it came from a wild dragon…You don’t think the Elves would notice a wild green dragon flying around? Arya was worried that they would attack Saphira, so she could only fly at night. I’m pretty sure any wild dragons would be killed.

She does not seem like she is a good person to mess with. JD[bunchofnumbers] – there’s a lot of numbers there – asked, “In Eldest, Eragon, Saphira, Arya and the rest of the gang were traveling to Ellesmera when Eragon’snecklace , which was imbued with a spell to ward off scrying went off while they were in Du Weldenvarden. How is this possible when the wards the elves erected prevent all magical items, thoughts, andspells from entering its boundaries?”C: That’s a really good question. That is a great question! And I did think of it… it’s… my thought on that was a little complicated so bear with me. I think that scrying isn’t necessarily an intrusive process, although I’m sure that the elves’ wards would have been set up to prevent it. The like their secrecy. But I also thought that even if—let’s say that Galbatorix was trying to scry on Eragon—no, no it was Murtagh I believe. If Murtagh is trying to scry on Eragon, the spell is directed at Eragon and the spell is going to expend a certain amount of energy. That energy would have to be blocked or dissipated from some source otherwise Murtagh would have been able to see Eragon. I figured that both the wards surrounding Du Weldenvarden and Eragon’snecklace activated at the same time; they were both doing the same purpose. So if Eragon didn’t have the necklace , he still would have been protected as long as he was in the forest, but since that process was happening at that point he felt the draining of the energy as hisnecklace performed its allotted task.M: Good answer!C: It’s a little complicated. I did think of it though!M: Another question from Sal: The spell on a dragon egg means that a dragon egg would only hatch for its destined Rider. What happens if that destined Rider is killed before he is able tobond with the dragon hatchling?C: Actually, one second – before I answer that, let me go back to the previous question. It isn’t impossible to scry into Du Weldenvarden because if you remember, in the beginning of Brisingr, Eragon did scry with Queen Islanzadí.M: I thought that was just a scrying dish only made for that?C: Yes, that’s because there are loopholes set up that the elves can use that lets them communicate in and out of the forest essentially. But it’s not one-hundred percent impossible. I don’t think any outsider would know the way to get through the wards but it isn’t one-hundred percent impossible.The question about the dragon eggs and who they hatch for… when I say that there’s people destined to become a Dragon Rider, the person destined is the person that that dragon chooses to be their Rider and the person that that dragon feels is appropriate for them. If Eragon had died, or had not found Saphira’s egg—if someone else had—I think that Saphira might have gone another hundred years in that egg but she would have found someone else to hatch for.So there’s not only one person in all of eternity, although I think that in all of eternity there is probably a small handful of people that Saphira would ever hatch for, but certainly at that time and everywhere else, Eragon was the one who she felt right for and so she chose him.M: Do you believe that there is anyone else that is currently living in Alagaësia alongside Eragon, not necessarily whom he knows, that Saphira would have hatched for?C: That’s a really tricky question. You know, I think she might have hatched for Murtagh honestly, if Murtagh had been of his own free will and—M: I think that speaks volumes for Murtagh before Galbatorix got his hands on him.C: Exactly. I think she—well obviously she wouldn’t have hatched for Arya, she had plenty of chance. [Chuckles] But also, I think one of the reasons she did hatch fro Eragon is because she was vaguely aware of what was going on with Arya and the fact that Durza had attacked her and Saphira was now out on her own, in an egg in the middle of the forest, and she was incredibly vulnerable and dangerous. I think quite honestly, Saphira didn’t want to go back to Galbatorix and was at that point, after almost one hundred years in the egg, was willing to give it a shot.M: It must get boring, you know?C: Yeah! Well, I always figured that the dragon in the eggs are almost in a state of suspended animation for a bit.M: Frozen?C: Yeah, a little sluggish.M: Here’s a good dragon egg question – this has been bugging me for quite some time, especially as I was writing the Almanac. We may have asked it, I don’t recall. In Eldest, Eragon steps past or on a green egg fragment. Is this a hint?C: [Long pause.] No. [Tone of sarcasm] It’s just a green egg fragment. Why would you think that was a hint? Oh, because there’s a green dragon on the front of the book? Oh, that… No comment.”What the heck. I really hope he was just screwing with us for that answer. If Arya isn’t the rider, I may just have to kill a b1tch.And As for the people saying it came from a wild dragon…You don’t think the Elves would notice a wild green dragon flying around? Arya was worried that they would attack Saphira, so she could only fly at night. I’m pretty sure any wild dragons would be killed.

  • convertedmoviefan

    i believe that CP’s statement about angela and a shade has something to do with wercats, maybe even selumbome becomes one, my reasoning for this is simple in theory.

    first the question that leads to this is could a dragon—could any creature that can actually think— and to answer CP basically said yes, and read book 4 and it involves angela. i think that he was answering can any creature that can think become a shade.

    i dont know if this can be true because i dont know if wercats can use magic other than to transform but if they can then i could see a wercat be aregent enough to try to contole spirits.

    this theory has its flaws i know but “i think” it is the best theory so far on what CP said about it dealing with angela.

    now that i think of it there is another that is a little obvious, it could be that angela killed a dragon that became a shade and tells eragon about it, or that she knows of an occurrence where something other than a human became a shade and tells of it to eragon.

    on another topic regarding the green egg shell, i believe that just about all of the theories on this thred could be right and that i honestly couldn’t speculate beyond the fact that i haven’t found a single interview that CP stated factually that the last egg under Galby’s control is green, so it is possible that the green dragon in the story has its origin somewhere other than the egg in galby’s control. but i don’t think it was a foreshadow simply because CP didn’t recognize the question as being is it a foreshadow of the main story, it would be a nice twist to have a wild dragon make an appearance in the last book, but i don’t think it would have as much to do with the three eggs.

    perhaps the VoS is something that only a wild dragon could show eragon to, it might be why oramis and arya said that it sounds familiar but they cannot place it, it may be a part of dragon history that they have tried to keep from the elves in case of something disastrous. and it is possible that something of it was imbued in the spell that bound the elves and dragons.

  • Anestis

    The last egg has not hatched, evidence of this, would be the fact that Eragon walks past the fragment in book2, and after that during the battle of the burning plains, Murtaugh states that the last egg Galbatorix has is a male and that Saphira is the last female in known existance. Therefor, the last egg couldn’t possibly have already hatched.

    My other theory about Eragon #1 and the spirits on Doru Araeba, is that Eragon #1 turned into a spirit and lives on the island.
    The only other thought i have is that the vault of souls is on Doru Araeba, and that Eragon #1 is imprisoned there. So when his power is insufficient, he can go release Eragon #1. Just a thought, a while thought. But meh, its what i came up with in my clever little head.

    (mind you, i havent read through the last 5 pages of posts, but will do that now incase someone else has posted something similar to me)

  • Bigred28655

    Angela can not be a former rider. What I mean by this is simple. She admits that she had problems reaching for the magic that is so easily in Eargons grasp. She speaks of it when she is at Eargons beside after the his wound from Durza, and when he is trying to undo the ‘blessing’ for Elva. You also see her working constantly with herbs or gathering some.

    Her strength in magic, and longevity is do to her using her own potions, she has said.

    How did she come by her dragon knuckle bones?

    I would say the same what she got the huthvir (Dwarven holy weapon), and tried to get other items she wanted. Through trickery and cleverness. She admits to using loaded dices lol. She is old, older then Brom even, so it would not be strange for her to acquired the items.

    I think where she will come strongly into the story of book 4 is with were cats. Elva, and fighting a shade perhaps. We have yet to see Angela’s true strength in magic so or Trinnias so Cp my let them loose. I would not be surprised to see Trinnia accidentally become a shade when she trys to summon her sprits, and then boom we have a fight. The Trinnia shad theory only comes from the fact that she is a sorceress, and it is just guessing.

    • ze chris

      If you read brisnger you will notice oromis said she was known as someone else when he first saw angela in ellesmera, my theory and its just a theory is that perhaps someone discovered her true name and in her wit managed to break the hold but it cost her the pronounciation to complete major spells, she may not let anyone into her mind for fear of discovering who she was and alerting galbatorix, for example the twins, she is as old as the riders so i just wouldnt rule it out.

    As far as the whole angela being mixed up with a shade thing, what if she is a former rider and her dragon became the shade? She may have even had to kill it in the end, which would explain where she got the dragon bones.

    I’m pretty sure when Christopher said “no comment” regarding the egg shell, he saw that WE were connecting the green shell to the green dragon.

    He did answer the question by saying:
    “No. [Tone of sarcasm] It’s just a green egg fragment. Why would you think that was a hint?”

    But THEN he realized we were wondering if there was a connection between the egg shell and the green dragon on the cover. So he said “no comment” because he realized what we were really asking.
    “Oh, because there’s a green dragon on the front of the book? Oh, that… No comment.”

    Overall, I don’t think we should be theorizing about the green shell because I think it won’t be mentioned at all in the 4th book.

    If the egg shell has been there a long time, I agree that there should be more shells with it. And he said no comment, hinting at that it is significant, not just a left behind shell from the wild dragons.

    Don’t forget Elves had to of been powerful before the bond with dragons, otherwise they wouldn’t have stood a chance in the war against the dragons.

    Maybe Arya is already secretly a Dragon Rider and for whatever reason she is keeping her dragon secret, and the egg shell was from her dragon. That will mean it’s a grown dragon already and can play a part in this next books. I understand that you might ask yourself, “well why hasn’t she started helping eragon then with her dragon?” To that, I have no idea, just a thought. I think it’s a given that a green dragon is already out there though, the question is why is it and it’s rider still in hiding when Eragon, practically the last hope, is in a struggle against the Empire..

    Maybe Angela will become a Shade, and control the spirits that are in her, and therefore have great power to assist eragon. Far fetched I know. At least he confirmed Eragon will be visiting the old island that the riders lived on.

    And sounds like the first Eragon might yet be alive after all, maybe to call on him Eragon must speak his true name at the rock. Hopefully the editting has been taking place as the books being written, and therefore it comes out this year still.

    @PrettyBullet:
    Remember before Saphira was hatched and Garrow and Eragon were trying to find the value of the egg? Remember when the trader said that it was tougher than a diamond?

    I doubt that when the egg hatches it becomes brittle and decomposes.

    And remember that the area Eragon was at was a mating and hatching place for dragons. (and yes, the elven battle was there too).

    Because dragons mated and hatched there, there should be LOADS of egg shells. And since the shell is freak’n tough, there should still be some remains; for instance, the green shell fragment.

    If the heart of hearts were planning something against Galby, then Galby would know about it.

    Remember, Galby is strong because he CONTROLS the heart of hearts. In order to control the heart of hearts, he must have their true names. And if he know’s their true names, he can invade their mind when ever they want and even extract thoughts they had already thought.

    So that obviously can’t work.

    i could be wrong on the spelling of his name, im not the person to ask when it comes to spelling, but regardless of spelling, i still believe he may be the first eragon , my theory’s on the first eragon as of now (with the help of other comments) i believe are as followed:
    1: Tengra or tenga, however, is the first eragon, rememeber elves can shape shift and bend light and such (so to hide a shiney palm, if he even had one, since he was the FIRST dragon rider, and a spell was made after his bonding)

    2: 1st eragon is in the vault of souls,

    3: the eragon CP is talking about, isnt our eragon, but the first, maybe at present time (in the book) or in past time…

  • PrettyBullet

    @Valbrandr94 (Guest): i could be wrong on the spelling of his name, im not the person to ask when it comes to spelling, but regardless of spelling, i still believe he may be the first eragon , my theory’s on the first eragon as of now (with the help of other comments) i believe are as followed: 1: Tengra or tenga, however, is the first eragon, rememeber elves can shape shift and bend light and such (so to hide a shiney palm, if he even had one, since he was the FIRST dragon rider, and a spell was made after his bonding)2: 1st eragon is in the vault of souls, 3: the eragon CP is talking about, isnt our eragon, but the first, maybe at present time (in the book) or in past time…

    @ShurtugalLiam: And I got in three… just to give credit, that one about if CP was a fan was inspired by a scene an Golden Compass/Northern Lights within which the Gyptan person asks the Witches’ representitive something to that effect, and he responds, “Where might one find an armored bear?” or something of that nature…

    I recall from somewhere that the green egg shell fragment question had already been asked, and he said no, bt that might have been before the release of Brisingr, I forget. I sense that the “no comment” means nothing…

    ?????- If Eragon did not take it off then yes, that would happen.

    By the way, Mike, the text in the comments for me has turned the same shade of blue as your comments…

    well, in all truth, arya could hide her shiny palm with magic.. but, im with you, i doubt a egg hatched for her and no one knew… my theory the egg fragment is it MIGHT dont even be a dragon and rider, but a wild dragon??? that to me sounds more plausible then a hidden rider on either Glabys side or Eragons side….

    It makes no sense to say that the last egg had already hatched. If it were true, then Galbatorix would have already used Murtagh and the new rider to attack. I just don’t believe Arya is a rider. I don’t think her dragon would have left her
    alone when she almost died when the Shade tortured her. Besides, she never covers her hands to hide the gelawäsiea (dragon mark). We’d better consider how the last egg could be stolen and the role that werecats will have in the following book(s). As to the the green egg fragment, it could be that it comes from another dragon that CP remembered when he was asked about it.

    Np on the shell thing.

    CP said that the third book would have been some where near 2000 pages if he would not have split it. The story was 748pgs in Brisinger hard back.

    CP also said that Book 4 is by far the largest of his works. I am one of the freaks who would loved it to be 1300pgs. I thought he even said some where It will be over 1000pgs long.

    I never have gotten to read the extended edition of Brisinger, I wonder if the added parts will influence the fourth book?”

    @PrettyBullet: I totally believe that the first eragon is going to have a huge role in the last book. I noticed also that Tengra almost spells eragon when the letters are jumbled? the only missing letter is the T in Tengra should be an O. then it would work. that may not be a coincidence

    I don’t have any brilliant theories just now. Well, actually I do have one theory, but before I say it: Sometimes, I really, truly hate CP, just for three seconds, because he answers all these great questions that open up more questions until I feel like my head is going to explode (and then I remember the wonderful books he’s given us….). Okay, so I’m just frustrated. 😀 I cannot wait for Book 4.
    Anyway, I can’t help but think that Elva will have a major role in Book 4- she’s definitely not there just as a challenge for Eragon. I think that (a) she’ll turn to the dark side, (’cause they have cookies), or (b) she’ll have a key role in Galby’s fall. Just sayin’.

    No Comment.

    No, but really, this is insane.

    Based off of this interview, we get the following ideas:

    1) No Comment on First Eragon.
    2) No Comment (and sarcasm) when referring to eggshell and Greeni.
    3) No Comment on phantoms and potential races.
    4) In regards to Shades and Dragon Riders, “read book 4”. Ohh, and it has something to do with Angela.

    To quote Mike: “Well, you always know it’s a good question when you get a no comment! You’ve hit the right point.”

    Given these, here is some input.

    1) Either Eragon I will be discussed or will actually show up in book 4, Or even in a later book.

    2) Either eggshell was meant to mess with the readers, or Greeni has already hatched.

    3) Phantoms will be explored and New Races will be introduced, including the exploration of the wherecats.

    4) Angela knows/knew someone who was a shade. I highly doubt she will be or has been a shade herself. As far as her being a Dragon Rider, possible.

    More exploration:

    1) My take is that Eragon I is still a live, something that up until now I would have thought was too preposterous. The only question I have is why he hasn’t done anything thus far in regards to Galby.

    2) Toughy, as much as I would love to say that Greeni has yet to hatch, it is definitely possible. And for all of you saying that it can’t be Arya because that is too easy to guess, might I add that people said the same thing about Brom being Eragons father.

    3) New Races and phantoms, other than the gray folk and wherecats I am at a loss.

    4) Angela remains a mystery. The idea of Dragon Riders and shades sends chills down my back.

      I could not agree with you more. I believe that the vault of souls has something to do with the first Eragon. Solembum says to Eragon to speak his name to the vault of souls or something like that so when Eragon does speak his name the first Eragon will come. When Eragon was visiting the dwarvin temple he sees a picture of the first Eragon and says something along the lines of he looks like me or he is not much different. So Eragon and the first Eragon have a connection to each other.

    • Anonymous

      Teejay- i think you are the only other person who has the “Gray Ones” or “Gray Folk” (i cant remember what they are called) in mind. I think they may have some role yet to play in the story. To me, the gray folk sound like ghosts.. aka phantoms. I cant quite remember what is said, but when Oromis and Eragon are talking about names (in Eldest), Eragon asks if the ancient language had a name of its own. Oromis then touches briefly on the Gray Ones and how they altered the ancient langauge (something to that effect).

      My question is– could the Gray Folk still be alive when they were thought to be extinct? and– in Brisingr, the Ra’zac mentions that Galby has almost found “the name.” What name? Murtagh already said that Glaby knew their true names *shrug* who knows? could he possibly be on his to finding the true name of the ancient langauge?

    so the only logical choice if the next rider should be an elf, and don’t mind my saying “here we go again” but Arya

    on the other hand if the green egg had already hatched how would she keep contact with the dragon? and spent time with it to train and the like?

    because the fragment Eragon steps on let’s us believe that the egg has already hatched.

    what if Galbatorix has already lost the last egg and that murtagh just knows abouts its sex from galby. remember the king did’nt tell that his forsworn where being killed both directly en indirectly by Brom. Which leads to the possibillty that the egg is in possesion of the elves but not yet presented. which leads to Arya being it’s rider because of certain traits and quallities.

    the fact that she is about a hundered years old also strenghtens the fact that the egg might be in possesion of or has hatced

    about Selena? I just don’t buy that although she did have the magic to hide herself en Brom didn’t see her body but I just don’t buy it.

    were being thrown off here about that fragment again it’s going to be obvious

    the only possibillity I can think off is Arya

    Elva is to young and dangerous not just for the power she would learn to wield but also the treath she poses to Eragon because of what he made her become

    Roran has a child on the way and is already powerfull enough even without magic, him being the next king I totally buy that, but it would’nt balance things out

    Murtagh already has Thorn so that’s out off the question

    Nasuada is’nt an option either because she already leads the Varden what good would more power do to her and who would lead the varden.

    I guess there just all suggestions but none of them actually tell us who we’re looking for everything just points towards Arya I just can’t think of anyone who apears in all books to fit the bill better than her

    – the last egg is indeed green
    – the only elves we’ve heard about in part one are Arya, Glenwing and Foalin

    @ChestershireCat (Guest): We all assume so… Show me book or interview evidence that the green dragon comes from the egg Galbatorix has. I don’t ever remember it ever being mentioned one way or the other. Its just that we know of an egg and know there will be a green dragon… the two do not necessarily mean the green dragon comes from the egg.

    @Blake (Guest): I dont think so. She is most likely dead. Though the caretakers may have lied for her remember back to when Angela told Eragon’s future. She said she told a woman named Selena’s future and that it was very grim. It may have been her death. Especially since she supposedly died right after she gave birth to Eragon, which could have her immune system down and more suseptable to illness, thus dying from the incurable sickness.

    Ok get this… Lets think about it this way, CP states that the green dragon rider has been in all three books correct? Most people assume that its Arya. But CP did not state whether they had actually TALKED and or were AROUND Eragon. It could be some one that they just talked about, but never met. This would help out the Selena being dragon rider theories greatly. Because as some people have said they never found the body just that she died. And the fragments of a green egg being a hint. I think that was CP being cruel in his own way haha. So it could possibly be selena because she was in all 3 books….sorta just not physically.

    @MaggiMCL (Guest):

    The last egg is green. We’ve heard it a million times.

    We also were told that all the Riders of old were dead. Joed though Brom was dead. Arya once thought Eragon was dead when his mind was blocked after the burning plains.

    We see a lot of people who are presumed dead to reappear. And if you remember, her body was never seen by Brom. All he knows is that some mysterious illness apparently killed her. Oromis said that when Brom left for killing Morzan, that it was the last time he was to see Selena. I bet the caregivers would lie for Selena.

    There have been subtle hints that she may be still alive… No body was seen. Also, Eragon makes a remark to how “He never got to speak to his parents as parents” I think this may be hinting that he will be able to speak with one of them, somehow, as a parent.

    Kind of like King’s Cross in Harry Potter, perhaps? lol

    CP said that Glaer and Oromis had the strength and sword skills to defeat Murtagh. So, I think that now that Spine is weak, he and Murtagh will not soon try a new attack since they know Eragon and Saphira possess now Glaer’s heart of hearts. Then, we can say that the first chapters of book 4 will be about attacking maybe more territories of Galbatorix while he tries to find a new dragon rider.

    @Riderbuster (Guest): What makes you think the green egg and Galbatorix’s egg are one in the same? We have no idea what color the last egg is. If the green egg already hatched for someone in Du Weldenvarden – likely an Elf – I think they would have a very large role in book IV. The other egg is still in Galbatorix’s possession or Murtaugh would not have told Eragon it’s sex.

    @Jarno (Guest): The interview is spread out over so many weeks so that it lasts longer – better to have sections of interview to look forward to each week than have one big interview and then nothing else to look forward to for goodness knows how long. Besides, this way we have time to discuss a small selection of topics rather than everyone trying to discuss several dozen topics at one time. As you say, the quality of questions in these audio’s has been much more exciting – there is so much to discuss and theorise over that i think the site would be overloaded with people all trying to discuss dozens of different topics at one time if the interview was released as one.

    The most intriguing answers were, strangely, the “no comment” ones! Funny how CP went from going “no the green egg shell doesn’t mean anything!” to “Oh uh… no comment!”

    GrowlingDude (Guest): He didn’t say that. In one of the first chapters of ‘Eragon’, he mentioned that his mother left him with Garrow and then left. That’s something else then dying.

    I never liked the interviews with Christopher because they are to small (on Shurtugal) and with stupid questions you know there will not be a answer, but that changes with the last two interviews with CP on Comic Con. Nicely done, however, I think you don’t need a week time to make a text version of a audiointerview, isn’t it?

    @theendispossible: i realy liked you theory about Angela being a dragonrider who lost her dragon and uses it`s bones to read the future. This would also explain why she is so crazy, she got a shortcut on her brain after she lost her dragon and started researching about toads and frogs. hehehe

    Hey about dragons becoming shades, I believe that Shruikan (sorry if i wrote it wrong, but i`m talking about Galbatorix`s black dragon) might be a shade. Because Galbatorix`s original Dragon was killed and through dark magic he got him another one. Maybe he found a way to possess the dragon with spirits and control it, or maybe i`m totally wrong and he just discovered the dragon`s real name and controls him through it.

    It can’t be Arya. Too predictable and boring.

    Lets try that again….

    Sweetness on the early post.

    I said on a previous post that I think the Big King would end up being a shade just for the sheer “Holy Crap,” factor it would bring.

    If it involves Angela then Tenga may be there to. I would be surprised if CP has the wacky witch become a shade. The witch is old, wise, and very much in control of herself. It is also his sisters character, but it would be a hardcore beastie for sure. Her magic is more of herbal verity so that is another mark against her being he shade. Watch her have to duke it out with Trianna after the sorceress becomes a shade.

    Also post the third part about 6 days earlier then plan. Eargon fans are wary of delayed releases.

    well with that last comment about anything being able to be a shade makes me think that Angela is a Dragon Rider and somehow her Dragon became a shade and she had to kill it. That in turn would be how she got her dragon knucle bones. It would also be a keep sake of her dragon she will always have and that is how she has gotten into ellesmera. Just wanted to throw that theroy out there. Debunk it if you want I think that it was pretty dang possible.
