Brom and Morzan even became good friends. When the time comes and you need a weapon, look under the roots of the Menoa tree.

Chapter Fifty-Four: The Vault of Souls: antishurtugal

What do you believe the Vault of Souls contains? As the Varden were plotting to steal the three dragon eggs from Galbatorix, Selena – who would’ve presumably be tasked with hunting down and retrieving said eggs – would’ve been one of the biggest challenges the Varden would’ve faced.

I think we mainly disagree on the point about Selena recognizing Brom. This has left little time for Eragon and Saphira to actively pursue leads on what the prophecy revealed; however, Eragon has chosen to confide parts of the prophecy in two elves whom he trusts implicitly in hopes that either of them may be aware of information which could help him and Saphira learn more about the Rock, Vault and their whereabouts.

Saphira steps up to the plate next and proudly states her true name. Welcome to Reddit, the front page of the internet. Eragon remained in Carvahall to be raised by Garrow while Murtagh now an orphan was brought up in the capital under Galbatorix’s watchful eye. In this case, Eragon wasn’t born to a slave woman and an absent father figure, nor was Anakin the son of Obi-Wan Kenobi or Qui Gon who was directed by the Force to sleep with Schmi Skywalker.

To answer your question, it fits much better with how Paolini describes Selena’s character, as opposed to her not suspecting anything, or being wholly ignorant. Just What the Heck Is It? We altered the flow of magic so that you and Saphira would meet. Post a new comment 25 comments. During this clandestine meeting between Selena and Brom, Selena became pregnant with Brom’s son, Eragon. Up until that point, Galbatorix had attempted to get the three dragon eggs to hatch, to produce Riders who would be loyal to him, and join him.


Later, after Brom had rescued [Saphira’s] egg, and the Varden and the elves started bringing younglings before it in an attempt to find the one for whom [Saphira] would hatch, we decided we should make certain preparations for that eventuality She was able to reveal that the name struck a familiar chord within her mind, though she was unsure why.

I also don’t think that, no matter how good his disguise, Brom could not out-fool Selena, who was the said to be one of the best spies and assassins in the land herself.

What does this mean for readers and Book 4? TV shows, movies, video games, anime, comic books, novels and even songs are things we like to see, but events pertaining to real life are not.

Rule 7 fragon Write up your theory if you link to an outside source People shouldn’t have to leave the sub to know what your theory is, please include a write up about your idea. I personally don’t really buy it but kudos for a well crafted theory. The subtitle was shown on the cover of the manuscript Christopher delivered to his editor at Random House.

Umaroth, too, echoes this, though he’s more vague about it in the book. Galbatorix, after Morzan and Selena’s deaths, even raises Murtagh “under his watchful eye” in his capital city, Uru’baen Ilireapresumably to train him as a future Rider. Neither of them was aware of Selena’s pregnancy, or that she had returned to Ths castle a fortnight earlier.

Galbatorix’s victory would have been absolute – as indeed he believes it was – and our kind [the dragons] would have passed forever from the face of the earth Use of this site constitutes acceptance of our User Agreement and Privacy Policy.

Shes also skuls implied to be “cunning, ruthless, and coldly logical”. Furthermore, the werecat was going into obvious trances!

And for posts that are not marked with the spoiler flair, please use spoiler tags in the comment section: As can be noted from his years-long stint in Carvahall, he’s not exactly clueless at disguising who he is though I’m sure using a different name should’ve been ‘alternate identities ‘. I can call her a sex toy if I want. From what we know, Brom’s plan for Selena was one of the biggest – if not the biggest – turning points in his life, after losing his dragon.


These questions have been with us since the start of Eragonwhen the werecat prophecy was first delivered to our hero — and readers — in a mysterious way. Your IP address will be recorded. Du Namar Aurboda, or the Banishing of Names. Eragon first asked Ayra, princess of the elves, to discover if she knew anything about the mysterious locations.

Could Christopher have included this bit of knowledge to lay precedence for magic that would have seen the Rock of Kuthian and Vault of Souls suffer the same fate — having their names stripped or hidden by magic?

On top of that I’m sure Brom was a capable enough magician to alter his appearance like the Elves do eragonn he could have changed his face for his time as Morzan’s gardener. Could it be accurate? I’d even go so far as to vualt this is why many readers have stated that Eragon seems to be “overpowered”, or even a “Gary Stu”.

At first, he had the intention of seducing and assassinating Selena in revenge for Saphira’s death, but some unexpected events occurred that changed the lives of both Selena and Brom.

One final theory worth noting is likely the most outlandish theory of the three. Eragon has since spent much of his time pondering the Rock of Kuthian and the Vault of Souls.

Selena encountered Brom in his guise as a gardener and the pair were drawn to each other. We know of one eragonn situation, where vaulg are no longer able to remember names which were once common knowledge: It’s also worth noting that Brom himself was once friends with Morzan, and trained alongside Morzan as a Dragon Rider.

While interesting, one must always consider that a piece of history or information was included in a prior book as a reference or building block for future plotlines. From a logical standpoint, and given Selena’s role at the time, this makes no sense. As Morzan’s greatest spy and assassin, Selena likely knew all of these things.
