The Raid in Aberon was an attack carried out by Galbatorix's Black Hand. Their mission was to assassinate high Varden leaders.

The AttackEdit

Drail, a magician working for the Black Hand, attempted to assassinate Nasuada by throwing a poisoned dart through an open window in her quarters. However, Elva rushed to her aid and managed to protect her from the oncoming missile.


Acting on information provided to them by Elva, the Varden swiftly infiltrated the building in which Drail was hiding. He committed suicide to avoid being captured.
