Glaedr and his Rider, Oromis, witnessed both the golden age of the Dragon Riders, as well as the destruction of their order. Being the only naturally bonded dragon and Rider to survive Galbatorix’s rise to power, the two spirited themselves away to Ellesméra, where they waited for one of the three dragon eggs in Galbatorix’s possession to hatch. Readers familiar with Glaedr as a mentor and teacher might be surprised to learn that he was not always so calm. In his younger years, the dragon once broke off the peak of a mountain in the Spine during a fit of rage. Time, however, has taught Glaedr that tantrums rarely help.
With this piece, I tried to draw Glaedr’s eye as it might have looked during his time in the forest of Du Weldenvarden: sadder, wiser, and yet also majestic. I hope you enjoy this fine-art reproduction.

p.p.s. Unfortunately, we are no longer able to ship our items outside of the US or Canada. Our deepest apologies to fans everywhere—you matter and this decision was not made lightly. Due to a combination of Covid-related supply shortages as well as mail carrier delays and mistakes, we’ve been experiencing an unprecedented number of issues and losses when shipping overseas. This is in addition to new trade regulations further complicating matters. For example, as of December 2022, the European Union requires small business owners to accept returns and pay for return shipping without reason. This is in addition to the EU VAT tax laws that were enacted in July 2021, which have also created expense and difficulty. Additionally, Germany is also requiring small business owners to register and pay for packaging recycling. To make our products affordable for fans, we operate on a tight margin of profit and simply cannot absorb the costs associated with these new regulations and general complications. We thank you in advance for your understanding.
