It's overwhelming. I feel as if I am living in an illusion, a dream where all things are possible. Amazing things do happen, I know, but always to someone else, always in some far-off place and time.
— Eragon

The apparent son of the traitorous Dragon Rider Morzan, Eragon was born in secret, with his mother, Selena, leaving him with her brother, Garrow, and his wife, Marion before returning to Morzan's castle. Raised by the two as their own, Eragon would come to discover that they were not his parents when he was young, and he would often ponder his true parents and his purpose in life. His life would be changed forever when he discovered a dragon egg, seemingly one of the last few in existence. The egg, seemingly bonded to him, hatched, revealing a small blue dragon with whom Eragon formed a close bond, with him taking on the mark of a Dragon Rider, the legendary guardians of Alagaësia who had been destroyed by King Galbatorix years prior.

Naming the dragon "Saphira" after discussing it with Brom, the eccentric village storyteller, Eragon secretly cared for Saphira, watching her grow and preparing to ride her, until two hooded strangers known as the Ra'zac arrived in town, tortured Garrow, and nearly killed Eragon if not for the intervention of Brom. The trio fled town, with Eragon swearing vengeance while being mentored by Brom, who revealed himself as a former dragon rider who had gone into hiding after the fall of the order and the death of his own dragon. Under Brom's tutelage, Eragon quickly learned swordsmanship, magic, and much of the history of the Dragon Riders, all while plauged of visions of an Elf woman in captivity. After befriending a mysterious stranger named Murtagh, the group was ambushed by the Ra'Zac, fatally wounding Brom, who gave some dying wisdom to Eragon before being buried in a diamond tomb.

Eragon, on his own, decided to seek out the Varden, the rebel alliance opposing Galbatorix's reign, and in doing so was able to rescue the elf woman, named Arya, from the captivity of Durza, a shade who served the Empire. Upon reaching the Varden, Murtagh was imprisoned and revealed his true identity as son of Morzan, while Eragon continued his training under both the Varden's best warriors and Arya. He subsequently took part in the battle of Farthen Dûr, where an elite force of Urgals and Kull advanced into the mountains where the Varden hid, and fought alongside his new allies, culminating in him slaying Durza and routing the remaining Imperial forces. Following the victory, Eragon agreed to continue his dragon rider training under Arya, who took him to the Elvish capital of Ellesméra.
