"One time long ago, the elf Maerzadí received a notice about his future. He would make a mistake to kill his own son in a battle. Instead, he took his life and saved his son and proved concurrently that the future is not predestinated."
Arya to Eragon

Maerzadí was an elf, presumably of the pre-Dragon War times who committed suicide rather than kill his son. In doing so, he disproved the prophecy. He is sometimes used by Christopher Paolini to warn his fans of the dangers of reading too much into his prophecies.
