During the duel, Morzan demanded to know of Brom whether he was responsible for the disappearance of his Black Hand. Because the plot demands it.

The names were stripped from memories and existence — people were no longer able to recall or refer to these dragons by their names. Which of the above theories do you find to be most accurate?

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.

FanTheory – A theory regarding past or present works. Galbatorix, aside from Morzan and Selena, was one of the few who knew about Murtagh’s birth. Both follow the age old “born of magic” trope, which dates back to even before the most obvious example of Jesus of Nazareth. 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.

We now know to expect big things from this mysterious Vault.

Morzan knew and expected Brom or sould Varden to try and kill him, hence the wards. Like Anakin was conceived by The Force to bring balance, your theory would have Eragon be conceived by exterior magic powers.


People shouldn’t have to leave the sub to know what your theory is, please include a write up about your idea.

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. We know of one similar situation, where people are no longer able to remember names which were once common knowledge: Selena, being the closest person to Morzan, more likely than not also knew about Brom.

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. 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 She is called a “master assassin and spy”, and well-versed in vsult and lies herself. Arya was able to offer the pair little little information.

We personally enjoy three key theories, each of which tge to explain or understand the Rock of Kuthian and the Vault of Souls in their own unique way.

Eragon pulls out his mind from Glaedr to allow him some alone time, but Glaedr decides to show his true name since Eragon and Saphira showed theirs to him. I think that they “nudged” and used “whispered suggestions” to influence Selena to, slowly, turn against Morzan and Galbatorix, and become more sympathetic to the Varden’s cause.


If he was lying, all that would be purposeful misleading, yet the trances where he was getting this information was quite real! It might seem similar on the surface, but the details are widely different. So his true name is an autobiography?

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.

Umaroth, too, echoes this, though he’s more vague about it in the book.

Likewise, when Umaroth says “we altered the flow of soouls 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. 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.

Chapter Fifty-Four: The Vault of Souls

Others suspect that the Vault of Souls may be where the Eldunari of wild dragons were sent after their death, guarded in secret against forces of evil seeking their power. What do you believe the Vault of Souls contains? At first only in small ways:
