Saphira Brightscales (Bjartskular in the Ancient Language) was a female blue dragon bound to Eragon. Saphira is the main dragon protagonist in the Inheritance series. Eragon found her egg in the Spine while hunting a deer after it was transported there by Arya, the elf princess, to keep her safe from Galbatorix's forces. A few days later, Saphira hatched for Eragon. Afterwards, the duo joined the Varden to take down Galbatorix.
In the movies of Eragon, she is voiced by Rachel Weisz, who also portrayed Evelyn Carnahan-O'Connell in The Mummy and The Mummy Returns.
