Eldest Chapter 37: Elva

Nasuada is taken by Jörmundur to see the child Eragon mistakenly cursed. Though she should only be a baby, the child, Elva, has grown to the size of a three or four year old, and speaks like an adult; Nasuada is uncomfortable in her eerie presence. She tells Nasuada that she can see a few hours into people’s future and is irresistibly compelled to act to protect them from harm. Since the suffering of war brings her acute misery, she asks Nasuada to enlist her unusual powers in any way that would make the war with Galbatorix end faster. Nasuada agrees, and asks Angela to watch Elva, to try to protect her and tokeep Nasuada apprised of her doings.
