Hair the color of rose's imperfection

Eyes like the one who is part of me,

Though we are two.

And the other of us is the color

Of his fallen relatives in the

Safest place on the earth(besides _________)

My family and I are celebrimbor,

But we are just my two brothers and me.

For now.


Mainly only one book, with two other references. Who are the two, the brothers and what does the ____ part mean?

Spoiler

Dragons!

More hints...

I am not that which you call by my name, for that person belongs to a more modernly created world than I live in.

I think it's

Arya, from the Inheritance cycle of fantasy novels.

For the rest of it, SPOILER ALERTS!

Our life and death are one, we two

That's her and Firnen, her dragon. The bond between Rider and dragon is one of my favourite parts of those books.

Hair the color of rose's imperfection

She has black hair, and blackleg is a plant disease affecting roses.

Eyes like the one who is part of me,

She has green eyes, and Firnen is green.

Though we are two.

Two in body, but one in mind and spirit.

And the other of us is the color

Of his fallen relatives in the

Safest place on the earth(besides _________)

Firnen's relatives (other dragon eggs and Eldunari) are hidden away in the Vault of Souls at Vroengard, perhaps the safest place in the world besides the elven forest.

My family and I are celebrimbor,

This refers to family not in the literal sense but in the sense of dragon Riders. Celebrimbor was an elven lord in LotR whose name means "silver hand", as in Argetlam - dragon Riders all have silver on their hands from the gedwey ignasia.

But we are just my two brothers and me.

The only dragon Riders in existence are Eragon, Murtagh, and Arya ...

For now.

... but more will hopefully arrive when the other eggs hatch.

The first hint is now self-explanatory. For the second:

Not to be confused with Arya Stark, a character of the same name in a more recently written fantasy novel ("more modernly created world").

  • $\begingroup$ Ummm... Basically, who has a male dragon and use the clues to figure out which it is. BTW, do you know what Celebrimbor means? $\endgroup$ – AJL May 20 '15 at 10:36
  • $\begingroup$ Note that celebrimbor has a meaning and is lowercase. Safest place on the earth is related to a different book. $\endgroup$ – AJL May 20 '15 at 14:04
  • $\begingroup$ @AJL OK, I've now solved all of it except the "safest place on the earth" - could it be the caves of Ulgoland from the Belgariad/Malloreon? $\endgroup$ – Rand al'Thor May 20 '15 at 19:40
  • $\begingroup$ Also the hair thing. Maybe I should change it to rose bush's imperfection? $\endgroup$ – AJL May 20 '15 at 20:03
  • $\begingroup$ And what color is the dragon? Who are the dragon's fallen relatives? That may help. $\endgroup$ – AJL May 20 '15 at 20:04
