You might recognize the Skrill as the symbol of the Berserker tribe. If you thought that was cool, wait until you get a hold of your own Skrill to train!

Skrills have the ability to stay frozen for decades. In fact, some were found in a seemingly inescapable block of ice. After the block of ice was destroyed, many Skrills were freed and in need of shelter. Since the School was accepting more dragons, Hiccup, Astrid, Snotlout and the Headmaster all decided to provide the Skrill with a home and a place to lay their eggs.

Skrills are famous for their ability to withstand flying through storms and use the electricity from the lightning to strike their enemies. That’s right, Skrills use the metallic spikes on their backs to gather electricity to shoot lightning! If you’re ever out during a thunderstorm, look to the skies – you might see a Skrill flying around hoping to charge up!

Skrill - SoDWith their large wingspans, Skrills are known to be excellent, agile and quick flyers. It has even been said that a Skrill can fly almost as fast as a Night Fury! As such, it is only fitting that they are classified under the Strike class.

Skrills are known to be extremely independent and stubborn. This may make them initially very difficult to train, but with the patience and determination of a talented dragon trainer such as yourself, Skrills can be loyal companions!
