Urgals (or Urgralgra in their language), were a race of sentient creatures that inhabit Alagaësia. In the first book they had been forced by Durza into the service of Galbatorix, they are considered evil by most humans, but are not inherently so. Though most are uneducated in the normal definition of the word, they make up for this with brute strength, exceptional combat, and commanding skills. They were used as expendable "shock troops" of Galbatorix's army. The Urgal language is a simple, guttural language. Only a few phrases are known to outsiders, and most of those are related to war and combat. Angela, the herbalist, is one of few who can speak their language. As with other races, and ignorantly dismissed by dwarves and humans, they are capable of using magic . With the fall of the Empire the Urgals were made Dragon Riders along with the Dwarves.

Physical Description:
Urgals are roughly humanoid in appearance, with grayish skin, bowed legs, and thick arms. They have yellow, piggish eyes, claws on their hands in place of nails, and a pair of long, twisted horns protruding from above their ears. Urgals can be anywhere from six to nine feet tall; an Urgal's height depends mostly on heredity though environmental factors may play a role. Urgals usually have seven toes on each foot as Dwarves do, a similarity that Eragon observes when traveling with Nar Garzhvog, although both rather believe it be the creativity of their gods than any possible relation. In the film, they are portrayed as barbaric, primitive humans. Although Humans and Dwarves think them merely bloodthirsty beasts, according the Heslant the Monk, Urgal dams (mothers) care well for their young. Their entire culture revolves around violence and physical strength; one's prestige being directly connected with how many kills one had or how many opponents they had beaten in combat as well as their size and the size of their horns. Thier horns actually are a sign of pride, if an urgal were to lose his horns it would be considered being stripped of his being and manhood.

In Inheritance, Eragon describes the Urgal children as looking similar to human children (before they get their horns), except for their grey skin and yellow eyes.

On average Urgals have lifespans similar to humans, they are stronger, faster and can run for much longer distances than any human or dwarf. This, as can be observed, makes them subject to tales of beasts among other species.

Early Days:
The Urgals originally came from the same land as the elves. They followed the Elves over the sea to Alagaësia, "like ticks seeking for blood", in the words of Brom. However, Heslant the Monk noted in Domia abr Wyrda that considerable skill would be required to build and sail ocean-going vessels, so perhaps they were capable of some sophistication. Upon landing, around three centuries after Du Fyrn Skulblaka, they signed peace treaties and indeed the peace was kept for two decades before the Riders drove out the violent Urgals from much of the land. They were looked down on by the other races, for their distasteful appearance and for their love of warfare.

During the era of the Riders, a group of Urgals ambushed the Rider Galbatorix and killed his dragon with a poison dart. This triggered the Second Dragon War and the rise of the Empire.

Rider War:
Just prior to the Rider War Durza the Shade, one of Galbatorix's most trusted servants, cast a binding spell upon the Urgal race, forcing them to serve the Empire against their wishes. The clans united, as was not their way and were forced to do Galbatorix's bidding until he decided to dispose of them at his leisure.

Urgals fought in many major battles during the war. They captured both Arya and Eragon. They brought both their captives to the fortress city of Gil'ead.

Later, when Eragon killed Durza, during the Battle under Farthen Dûr the spell was broken and the Urgals were freed. They then turned on each other.

The Urgals began to hate the Empire and Galbatorix for the sake of the wrong which had been done to them. The hatred became so strong that a group of Urgals under Nar Garzhvog allied themselves with the Varden at the Battle of The Burning Plains, hoping to exact vengeance for the wrong done to them. Afterwards, many other Urgals joined the Varden. Only a few tribes still refuse to work with their old enemies. At the end of the war the Urgals, along with the dwarves were, inducted into the spell so they could become Riders.

All Urgals yet were stronger and more deadly than the average human. However, the tallest and more powerful of the Urgals, the Kull, stood just under eight feet tall on average, and had legs like tree trunks. Kull seem to be trained Urgals, though it is not clear just how they grow to be Kull or "normal" Urgals. In Eragon's sweep of Garzhvog's memories in Eldest there is mention that it is due to the "...Old Blood in his veins," but no further clarification is made. In Inheritance, when Eragon visits the Urgal village near Fläm Lake, he notices that Kull children are visible among the young Urgals, and that it appears that Kull parents have no increased chance to birth Kull children.

Urgal Language:
All the Urgal species shared the same language. Many Urgal words were deemed unpronounceable by other races.

  • Ahgrat ukmar - it is done

  • Drajl - spawn of maggots

  • Ithrö Zhâda - Rebel Doom

  • Kaz jtierl trazhid - Do not attack

  • Nar - a gender-neutral title of respect

  • Otrag bagh - Circle him

  • Ushnark - father

  • Ugralgra- Urgals (literally, those with horns)
