(Okay, I know that Murtagh’s way hotter, but I’m rereading the book for an English assignment and haven’t gotten that far yet 😀 So bear with me, and I’ll do Mr. Tall-Dark-and-Freakishly Handsome another day.)
Source: The Inheritance Cycle (Eragon, Eldest, Brisingr, Inheritance, all by Christopher Paolini)
Age: 15 at the start of the series
Personality: He’s generally curious, and has trouble taking his time to think before jumping into a fight. Eragon’s extremely loyal to his family and friends, and his dragon, Saphira.
And when he’s in love, he’s a bit of an (read: a total) idiot. ❤
Bio: Not much can be said without major spoilers. He was raised by his aunt and uncle when his mother abandoned him, and he never knew his father. Eragon spent his time helping his uncle and cousin with the harvest, until the day he found a dragon egg in the forest. His life would be changed forever….
Special skills: Magic, dragon riding, diplomacy, fighting (with sword & bow and arrow), looking hot in chainmail
NOT quite a skill: Impressing chicks, particularly elves.
Fangirl rant: It’s been two years since the most recent book was released (Brisingr came out in October of 2009), and we had NO new news on the final volume in the cycle until just recently. It’s set to come out in November…. which is part of the reason I’m rereading the books now. With all the plot twists and turns, unfulfilled foreshadowing, more enemies than ever before, and unrequited love, I’m interested to see how things will turn out.
Neat trivia: Christopher Paolini was only fifteen when he began working on Eragon as a skinny, homeschooled teenager. The book is now a #1 New York Times bestseller– he’s in his early twenties and he travels around the world doing promotional book tours. Inspirational much?
