Is that why my mother left?

My sister was in a great hurry

when she left you here.

Whatever her reasons, we can only trust

they were for your own good.

Besides, had she not,

I wouldn't have gained another son.

Take these.

I've been saving them for you.

Your blessing is all I need.

Take care of yourself, Roran.

Goodbye, Father.

Be strong, brother.

And work on that aim.

You may make a hunter yet.

Not a stone.

An egg.

Well, look at you.

What are you?

Well, you're not a bird.

Where is it?

Too late.

It's hatched.

It's hatched.

Look at what you did.

Eragon, wake up.

Get on with your chores.


Go on.

Drink while it's still warm.

I'm sorry. That's all there is.

So much for our rat problem.

My king, Galbatorix.

As you feared, the dragon has hatched.

But to a mere farm boy.

To whom is not the issue.

When the Varden learn

that the legend is real...

...they will be encouraged

to challenge me.

And I am not interested

in being challenged.

There is no one left for you to fear,

my king.

Beyond these borders

are remnants of the resistance.

Dwarves. Elves. The Varden.

I can't let them have hope.

Do not let them reach the Varden.

I will find the boy...

...and kill him before he becomes a man.

Where's your mother?

Did she abandon you too?

Did she leave in a great hurry?




Kill the rider.

Nothing from my boys.

Not a word.

Their mother's heart is broken.

And for what?

More death? More suffering?

Easy, Horst. The soldiers will hear you.

What's that matter?

Speak or not speak.

It makes no difference.

Quiet, Brom.

A fool like you has nothing to lose.

No argument there.

Don't mind me.

But it wasn't always like this, was it?

There was a time when our land flourished

without cruelty and fear.

A time of dragons and Dragon Riders.
