Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III 

Hiccup Horrendous HaddockHiccup Horrendous Haddock III is the son of the Viking chief, Stoick the Vast. He is thin and does not fit the physical expectations of the average Viking teenager. Because of this, Hiccup struggles to fit in with more traditional Vikings, which at times puts him at odds with his father and other members of their village.

As the assistant of the local blacksmith, Gobber, Hiccup excels in other avenues and possesses a great sense of ingenuity, creativity and patience. This was best demonstrated through his training and eventual befriending of Toothless.

Hiccup - How to Train Your DragonBecause of his deep desire to prove his worth, Hiccup often exhibits a strong sense of determination and will go above and beyond what is expected of him. These traits were essential to his role in forging peace between dragons and Vikings.

Through his bond with Toothless, Hiccup’s newfound knowledge of dragons allowed him to quickly rise to the top of his class in dragon training. After earning the praise of Gobber, his classmates and his father, Hiccup was eventually chosen by Gothi to fight the Monstrous Nightmare. Not wanting to kill the dragon, Hiccup tried to explain that dragons are not as dangerous as they seem, but was disowned by his father and ridiculed by the villagers.

However, Hiccup was later able to prove everyone wrong when he and his classmates used trained dragons to defeat the Red Death. After witnessing the courage and bravery of Hiccup and Toothless, the Vikings of Berk were finally ready to forge an era of peace with dragons.

Hiccup is currently engaged to his former classmate, Astrid, and is excited to marry his best human friend! More recently, however, Hiccup's long-lost mother, Valka, unexpectedly returned. While everyone had initially thought that she had been carried off and killed by dragons, it was revealed that she had learned how to train them and had devoted her life to saving these creatures.

In the fight against Drago’s Bewilderbeast, a mind-controlled Toothless almost kills Hiccup, but he is spared when Stoick pushes him out of the way, sacrificing himself. Stoick’s death devastated Hiccup, and temporarily put a strain on his relationship with Toothless. However, he and his best friend were able to reconcile and defeat Drago and the Bewilderbeast together.

With Stoick’s death, Hiccup has inherited the role of chief of the village of Berk. He hopes that the peace between Vikings and dragons continues to flourish. You can also find him around the School of Dragons, so be sure to say hello! He will help you begin your process as an expert dragon trainer and tell you how he used the scientific method to train Toothless!
