Hiccup (Horrendous Haddock III, but we don't need that last bit, really)age:
How To Train Your Dragon (the movie) year or position:
8th gradeNon-Speaking Animal Companion(if any): Toothless
the power of A PROSTHETIC LEG! Other than that, nada.❦ In depth:Personality:
Despite general public opinion at the start of the film, Hiccup was as much a viking as anyone else in Berk—he just didn't have the brute strength to back it up. He was just about as courageous and bold and stubborn as anyone else, and, at the start of the film, just as eager to kill a dragon as anyone else. He simply didn't have the means to back those traits up the traditional viking way. Only when he began riding with Toothless does it become clear that he can be pretty fearless and also has damn good survival (and overall) instincts.
Instead of strength, though, Hiccup has a hell of a lot of sarcasm, intelligence, and a knack for the creative and inventive. He is constantly making snarky comments, even when he feels horrible, possibly as a defense mechanism to the extremely hostile attitude everyone has towards him (but that's getting too much into sikowanalysis). He also managed to figure out why Toothless couldn't fly rather quickly, and created a sturdy artificial fin that fit just right and worked just right from scratch! I think that qualifies him as some sort of inventing genius.
Hiccup also has leadership and strategic qualities, most obvious when he leads and gives orders to the other kids when fighting the Green (Red? I don't even know) Death. He can think quickly on his feet, improvising a plan using whatever tiny, seemingly inconsequential knowledge he picked up here and there. Tl;dr, he's really resourceful.
Hiccup is also not the most sociable of people and can also come across as just plain awkward in general. Fidgety, not always great at communicating himself in words...he's gotten much better, no doubt, but being the most hated guy in town your whole life will leave you with a general lack of social skills.Canon Background: BAM!AU Background:
Canon info is unchanged. Shortly after Hiccup woke up after his battle with the Red Death, a dark mist started forming over the horizons. Any dragon or viking who flew off to check it out never came back. That's when the people of Berk realized this mist was bad news and wanted to take it out somehow and get the other villagers back.
Not long after, Hiccup received a letter asking him to come to some sort of academy that claimed to have information on the mist, and a solution. Both curious about the mist and about what, exactly, a school was if it wasn't just dragon training, Hiccup 'talked' it over with Toothless. Neither of them was opposed to the idea, so they decided to go to this “school.”Appearance: Like this
