|Chronological and political information|
Hvedra was a female dwarf of the clan Dûrgrimst Ingeitum. She was engaged to Orik and they intended to get married in the spring, however they had to push back the marriage so that Orik could comply with Hrothgar's order to accompany Eragon to Du Weldenvarden. She was the granddaughter of Vardrûn, and the daughter of Thorgerd One-eye and Himinglada. Hvedra was described to be very pretty, with rosy cheeks and pale white calves.
Role in the books Edit
- She and Orik would rub their noses against each other as a sign of affection, but it is unknown if this was a private gesture, or a common sign of affection between husband and wife in the Dwarven culture.
