Galbatorix was the Rider of Shruikan and crazed king of much of Alagaësia in the Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini. Shruikan was not Galbatorix's original dragon; his first died at the hands of some Urgals. When Galbatorix's request to the Council of Elders for a new dragon was denied, he went mad with hate and sorrow for losing his dragon. He killed Shruikan's original rider and bound Shruikan to himself through dark magic.
