If a Dragon experienced bodily death and fled into its Eldunarí while their Rider still lived, together they became known as Indlvarn. The transition would hardly be a pleasant one for the dragon, but many Riders and dragons successfully adapted to the change and continued to serve the Riders with distinction.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

  • In the dictionary of Ancient Language terms provided at the end of print copies of Brisingr, Indlvarn is simply referred to as a term for a special pairing of Rider and Dragon, so as not to spoil anyone who might spot the term while consulting the information on another.
