Headmaster

The School of Dragon's Headmaster will go down in history not only as the first School of Dragons Headmaster, but also as a legendary Viking warrior whose exploits will be sung for generations to come. In his younger years, he was known as Heyral the Bloodthirsty, one of the smartest and strongest warriors that Berk had ever seen. For decades before peace was made between the dragons and Vikings, he fearlessly defended the village and defeated countless dragons. As his legend grew, many claim to have witnessed dragons flying away in fear when they saw him coming to the battlefield!

The Headmaster developed invaluable insight into his winged enemies through a lifetime of combat. He would lead many expeditions through the sea to find the fabled dragon nest. Although he came back empty handed each time, his last expedition was what put an end to his career. He never talked of what happened on that trip. One Viking who followed him on the journey claimed that the Headmaster discovered a nest of baby Deadly Nadders. Though the dragons were his mortal enemies, he could not bring himself to put them down. Disappointed in his resolve as a Viking warrior, he laid down his axe after the journey and retired.

He vowed to be done with dragons but fate had different plans. Years later, news of Hiccup’s grand achievements reached him and reignited his interest in these winged creatures. After all, he knew how strong dragons were. The thought of Vikings and dragons working together intrigued him, and he quickly returned to action to find his place in this new world where they could coexist. To Stoick, Heyral was the clear choice to lead the School of Dragons. He knew that Heyral’s leadership and dragon knowledge would prove invaluable to young Viking students. Heyral sometimes comes across as a stern teacher with strict lessons, as he demands the absolute best from his students. However, his resolve comes from knowing what is necessary to forge his students into powerful dragon trainers. He knows that there is a reckoning coming in the horizon and his dragon trainers must be ready to take on the challenge.
