The bond between Hiccup and Toothless is why dragons and Vikings on the Isle of Berk live peacefully today. In fact, the School of Dragons would not exist if it wasn’t for their unlikely friendship. After injuring Toothless and finding himself unable to kill a defenseless dragon, Hiccup decided to study him instead. 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.
