|Head of State||Galbatorix, Lady Lorana|
Feinster was an Imperial port city wedged between Edur Carthugavë, or the tailbone of The Spine, the Jiet river and what appeared to be a wide bay. Albriech, one of Horst's sons, was going to go there to work and many ships, such as the Albatross visited the port to trade. Feinster was governed by Lady Lorana and was besieged by the Varden at the end of Brisingr.
The keep of Feinster was tall and square and adorned with many towers. The roof was made of slate to prevent the castle from being set on fire. The city was surrounded by eighty-foot tall stone walls and a solid gate, which was guarded by wards. During the Siege of Feinster, Arya and Blödhgarm, along with the help of Eragon and Saphira, managed to open the gates from inside the city. Near the end of the siege, Eragon and Arya found three magicians attempting to turn a man into a Shade. Eragon and Arya, with Saphira's help, managed to kill two of the three, but the third succeeded in summoing several spirits which possessed the man and the Shade Varaug was born. Thankfully, with Eragon's help, Arya slew him before he could do any severe damage.
