The Duel at Utgard Mountain was a conflict between a wounded Vrael and Galbatorix. Galbatorix was fresh from victory at the Battle at Doru Araeba. Galbatorix kicked Vrael in the fork of the legs, then cut him down. Galbatorix then proceeded to steal Vrael's sword and used it from then on. After this, the place was known by the surviving Riders as Ristvak'baen, "Place of sorrows," while the commoners referred to it as Utgard.
