Vantage Point The setting of Eragon takes place in a land with a terra setting known as Alagaesia.
Vantage Point The book is set in the past that is based solely on fiction. The estimated year if it were actual reality would probably be somewhere between 1000 to 1100 A.D.
Vantage Point For the length of the book, Eragon was travelling all over Alagaesia. So there were many different Vantage points, like deserts, forest, port cities, mountains, etc.
Characters Major (Round) characters: Eragon, Saphira, Brom, Durza, Galbatorix, Ra’zak Minor (Flat) characters: The Twins, Roran, Orik, Nasuada, Angelina, and many more.
Characters Major Protagonist (Good Guy): Eragon is the main protagonist, although he has a lot of help along the way. Major Antagonist (Bad Guy): Galbatorix is the one that the Varden are fighting, but it’s actually Durza who leads most of the fight throughout the novel.
Characters While the main antagonist is Galbotorix, he is rarely heard of and never actually seen. For the most of the book Eragon is more concerned of killing the Ra’zak, and not the king.
Conflict Man Vs. Self Eragon is about to a slave at an auction, but is forced to stop when he realizes he and the slave would be captured and possibly killed.
Conflict Man Vs. Society The Varden against Galbatorix, he gets everything while the poor and needy get nothing, Eragon and the Varden want to change this.
Conflict Man Vs. Man The entire book is based on a coming war and how Eragon is being trained while tracking two of the King’s hit men.
Conflict Man Vs. Supernatural The book is based around a farm boy discovering a dragon, so, really, the whole book is Eragon fighting the super natural.
Conflict Man Vs. Nature When Eragon enters the desert and there is a massive storm that hinders his progress through the desert.
Plot The book is based around a king who abused his power and now the world is trying to get back at him. This is where Eragon falls into place, as the side who controls the riders controls the continent.
Plot At the start of the book is centered around a bizarre rock that hatches into a Dragon for Eragon. Then his farm is burnt to the ground and his uncle slaughtered, Eragon decides to set out for revenge with the help of Brom, the town bard.
Plot For most of the book, Eragon is tracking the king’s main assassin’s, they are called the Ra’zak. When the Ra’zak ambush Eragon, he is forced to go to the Varden.
