However, the eggs, for decades, failed to respond to any touch. Case in point, Brom, out of revenge – seemingly out of nowhere – decides to “seduce and kill” Morzan’s consort, and Murtagh’s mother, Selena. I think we mainly disagree on the point about Selena recognizing Brom. As such, Selena could probably see right through Brom’s probably rather crappy, to her disguise and pretending in an instant, using said powers of deduction to see he was lying.

Selena, being the closest person to Morzan, more likely than not also knew about Brom. tje

Chapter Fifty-Four: The Vault of Souls: antishurtugal

Since the flash didn’t work as far as I know, here’s the Nostalgia Critic’s song Boring. Eragon first asked Ayra, princess of the elves, to discover if she knew anything about the mysterious locations.

The subtitle was shown on the cover of the manuscript Christopher delivered to his editor at Vaulf House. More specifically, I think that they “helped” him by not only helping him kill three of the Forsworn including, I assume, Morzanbut by influencing Selena to turn against Morzan, encourage her to fall in love with Brom, and for Selena to turn from being one of the Varden’s biggest enemies, to one of its greatest allies.

Eragon had to be “overpowered”, or else he’d never stand a chance against Galbatorix’s power to begin with. Rule 9 – Posts must be flaired We ask that you flair your post based on these criteria: Thrice we were able to arrange the death of one of the Forsworn; when not ruled by his passions, Brom eraton a useful weapon for us Eragon and Saphira were able to locate the only remaining piece of brightsteel under the roots of the Menoa tree — steel they used to forge his new Rider sword, Brisingr.


Brom idolized Morzan, tagged after him, allowed Morzan to boss him around and always considered himself weaker than Morzan. The “kill” part, I can get. Like Anakin was conceived pf The Force to bring balance, your theory would have Eragon be conceived by exterior magic powers. This information may be relevant. Very interesting and considered theory, if not now my new personal headcanon, certainly something I’m going to weigh in my next reread and suls about come book 5.

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.

Chapter Fifty-Four: The Vault of Souls

However, instead of killing Brom herself, or alerting Morzan, Selena instead decides to talk to Brom. Tthe, 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 is called a “master assassin and spy”, and well-versed in secrets and lies herself.

Selena probably thought erwgon Brom would never actually be able to get away with killing Morzan. We altered the flow of magic so that you and Saphira would meet. I think that they “nudged” and used “whispered suggestions” to influence Vqult to, slowly, turn against Morzan and Galbatorix, and become more sympathetic to the Varden’s cause.

Selena had died only a few hours earlier, despite having been treated yhe Morzan’s healers for the fortnight before her death. She also knew that Morzan had probably killed Brom’s dragon, Saphira I, and that Brom had joined the elves at the Battle of Ilirea Uru’baenonly for them to lose to Galbatorix and the Forsworn Morzan included.

You have done a splendid job of keeping this within canon limits and the only part I can pick at is Selena knowing who Brom was on sight. Skuls caused resentment on Selena’s part towards Morzan.


Want to add to the discussion? It’s an Eragon theory and we don’t get nearly enough of those It always the big question why Brom would fall for the enemy. The Vault of Souls. Likewise, Morzan’s castle is warded heavily, and Morgan frequently battled against Brom and the Varden.

While interesting, one must always consider that a piece of history or eraggon was included in a prior book as a reference or building block for future plotlines.

What does this mean for readers and Book 4? The most popular theory is that the Vault of Souls is a large, hidden cache of Eldunari — possibly belonging to the wild dragons or the good Riders prior to the fall.

Post a new comment Error. We now know to expect big things from this mysterious Vault. At first only in small ways: Want to know the details to thd People shouldn’t have to fault the sub to know what your theory is, please include a write up about your idea.

And for posts that are not marked with the spoiler flair, please use spoiler tags in the comment section: You’re correct, it does answer several large questions that weren’t already addressed in Inheritance.

If he was lying, all that would be eragno misleading, yet the trances where he was getting this information was quite real!

Alternatively, is Kuthian the Rock itself? Selena, after all, “earned a reputation as Morzan’s greatest weapon and most dangerous servant in the fight against his enemies the Varden “, “was also the most enigmatic of Morzan’s operatives, as little factual information eraogn known about her during this period”; and “her reputation for cruelty and malice, as well as her position as Morzan’s favored agent, preceded her to such an extent that the Varden considered her especially dangerous”.

Let me just get this out of the way:
