Through his careful observations and a keen eye, Hiccup not only earned Toothless’ trust, but was also able to make him a prosthetic tail fin that would allow him to fly again. Day by day, Hiccup would go to Toothless with a new prosthetic tail, practice flying with him, and would then make changes to test each variation.
