The beautiful capital of the elves is unlike any other city in Alagaësia. Singing to the magical forest, the elves shaped trees and other plants into magnificent buildings. Eragon and Saphira spend months in Ellesméra training under Orimis and Glaedr. During his stay, Eragon also experiences the Agaetí Blödhren, the blood-oath celebration, celebrating the link that created the Riders. It is here that he receives elven qualities. The wound Durza gave him in Farthen Dûr is healed.
