Belgaer is the fifth of the Nine Bright Shiners. In The Beginning, Belgaer became part of the Charter as the Wall and the Great Charter Stones, along with Ranna. As a bell, Belgaer is the Thinker, who allows independent thought for the dead, or erases memories. It was wielded by Sameth at the binding of Orannis.
- When Yrael is rebound after Orannis' binding, Sabriel uses Belagaer to bind him, to allow him freedom.
- Belgaer is the bell most scorned by necromancers.
