Gothi

Gothi is another one of the elders on the Isle of Berk. She is a wise old woman who is revered by those in the Viking village. She is easily identified by her very small and short figure, wavy gray hair and swollen eye. She is trusted by the tribe to make important decisions, although she rarely speaks. Rather, she communicates through gestures and writing in the ground with her trusty wooden staff, which she uses to get around.

When it comes to choosing who will fight the Monstrous Nightmare in the Viking Training graduation ceremony, it is Gothi’s job to show the tribe who the most promising young Viking is. When the choice comes down between Astrid and Hiccup, she ultimately chooses Hiccup to enter the arena.
