Inheritance Cycle: Barzûl

After the defeat of Galbatorix, Eragon sets out to find a new home for the new era of Dragon Riders. With the knowledge that only the Eldunarí carry, they guide him across Alagaësia until they reach the destined home for the Dragon Riders. As they settle in, Eragon contacts Nasuada to tell of the place where they are settled, and to only share the information with the Riders who are able to make the journey. But when a new young Rider named Barzûl (Dwarf language means cursed with ill fate) becomes Eragon's third apprentice, the tables begin to turn. As time goes on, Barzûl begins to become eager in learning about Galbatorix and soon begins acting much like the overthrower of the Riders. Can Eragon help Barzûl before he seeps into the insane mind that Galbatorix was once enslaved in? Or will the Riders be destroyed before they are even rebuilt?

"There are two kinds of secrets, those we keep from others,

and those we keep from ourselves." - Franklin

     It had been 3 months since Colbert joined Eragon.  He had learned eagerly, and learned the art of patience, as well as other means of being a Rider.  Receiving his sword a month after arriving, and becoming a Rider was the best thing that had ever happen to him.  Everything was perfect at the home of the Riders.

     Far off in the home of the humans, a boy with a hard heart became the third Dragon Rider to be made after the fall of Galbatorix.  However, his becoming was not celebrated by feasts or parties, for he was a half breed between a Dwarf and a Human.  His name, meant cursed with ill fate, and he grew up almost alone.  He had not been too mad at Galbatorix, he thought of him in power and he idolized him for that.  Why should someone get killed just because they are more powerful?  To him, hatched a black dragon, much like the dragon to Galbatorix.  The one thing that he disagreed with Galbatorix on, was that he did not want to enslave dragons, he wanted to bond with them.  Power would be more effective if the dragon and the Rider had a bond so tight that insanity didn't even hold fear to them.  

     His dragon, Edaris, meaning blood in dwarf, was his best friend.  He wished no harm to befall him, and would protect him at all costs.  The elves had felt the presence of another Rider, though none could track down who it was.  It stumped Arya and all the other elves as well.  They were connected to all Riders, so why couldn't they figure out who this new Rider was, or at least where they were. They knew a black egg had hatched because it was missing, and currently undetectable.  Soon, Arya had proposed that they preform an old ritual to find the Rider, should he not show up.  

     He had also heard the Dragon Rider mountains name, and felt the pull of it just as described.  He just ignored it.  Edaris knew what he felt, and agreed with it, even though he had heard the minds of everyone around them.  The only one who would ever be able to hear him would always be Edaris.  No one could possibly understand him, after all, he was the 'freak' of his time.  Always different, never fitting in.  

     Edaris, I can feel Arya is trying to sense my presence.  Do you think that it would be right to reveal myself?

    It's up to you.  I will stand by any decision you make.  He sighed, he was tired of hiding and evading.  Yes, he could do magic very well, and no one could teach him anymore then he already knew about magic, but if he wanted his bond to grow even stronger, then he would have to go to Eragon.  

     I think it's time we answer the pull of the Mountains.  With that, he jumped atop Edaris's back, and they took flight to the pull.  


     It took them 4 days to reach the sights of the mountain, and they saw the other two Dragon Riders atop their dragons spinning and diving.  As they approached, a huge blue dragon came into view.

     Who are you?  You're a Dragon and his Rider, obviously, though we did not get any reports that another egg hatched.  A mental voice resounding like a bell, entered both their heads, and they answered.

     I am Edaris, dragon of the new Rider.  

    And you?  What is your name, Rider?  Saying out loud and mentally, he directed his voice to both the dragon and his rider.

     I am the son of a dwarf and a human, and the Rider that will be your best student.  I am Barzûl.
