Morn was the man who owned the Seven Sheaves, a tavern in Carvahall. He was described as having a face that looked like he had rested it on a grinding wheel, because the bottom half of his face was short and mashed. He was married to a woman named Tara. He knew Quimby and was upset when he was killed. He reluctantly left Carvahall with Roran to go to Surda and brought the remainder of his beer and mead with him.
Morn's name may have originated from the character of Morn on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, a character who regularly appeared in Quark's bar, but never spoke. Inheritance Cycle author Christopher Paolini is a great fan of science fiction works.
