Stoick the Vast
is the chieftain of the Viking tribe, Gobber the Belch's long-time best friend, Valka's husband, and Hiccup's father. Immensely strong, utterly fearless, and a fierce warrior, he embodies the traditional Viking virtues. He does not understand his child, having little in common with him, but eventually realizes that Hiccup is an impressively powerful and resourceful warrior in his own way. During the climax of the second movie, Stoick sacrificed his life to save Hiccup from getting killed by Drago, who used his Bewilderbeast's hypnotic abilities on Toothless so he could kill him.
