How to Train Your Dragon coloring pages
The story takes place in a mythical Viking world where a young Viking teenager named “Hiccup” aspires to follow his tribe’s tradition of becoming a dragon slayer. After finally capturing his first dragon, and with his chance at finally gaining the tribe’s acceptance, he finds that he no longer has the desire to kill it and instead befriends it.
Hiccup is the son of the Chief, Stoick the Vast, on the island of Berk. Hiccup’s village is beset by dragons which keep raiding their stock of sheep. Hiccup works as an apprentice to the blacksmith, Gobber the Belch.
During a raid, Hiccup shoots down a rare dragon called a Night Fury with a bolas cannon that he made but no one believes him. Attempting to get proof Hiccup goes to the woods and finds the downed dragon, but can not bring himself to kill it. Soon after, he frees it and it flies off to a canyon. Stoick enrolls Hiccup in dragon training with the other village youths and leaves with a search party of Vikings to find the Dragon’s Nest, in order to wipe them out and finish the war. After being told that dragons are vicious, Hiccup returns in doubts to the forest. The Night Fury is still trapped in a canyon, and is missing a part of its tail from the previous crash landing, leaving it unable to fly properly. Hiccup decides to befriend the dragon, which he names Toothless, and eventually fashions an artificial tail wing and control harness.
Stoick and his army return battered and tired, without having found the nest. Stoick’s spirits are lifted when Gobber and others begin congratulating him on Hiccup’s success in dragon training. Feeling a chance to bond with his son, Stoick honors Hiccup with a Viking helmet made from half of the breast plate of Hiccup’s deceased mother.
Hiccup reawakens in his home some days later, to find Toothless by his bedside. As he is getting out of bed, he realizes that his left foot was lost in the fire and has been replaced with a prosthetic made by Gobber; outside, he sees that the Vikings have invited the dragons to live in the village. Hiccup is welcomed back as a hero and receives a kiss on the lips from Astrid. Hiccup and Astrid ride their dragons through the newly reformed Berk as the war between dragon and Viking ends.
