The Big Four

Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III

Usually Hiccup is a nickname given to him in his early years, with his real name being either Henry, Harry, Harold, Hamish, Haven or something similar. He spends time doodling, applying his skills at Gobber's Auto-shop and trying to keep up with the standards of his father. Sometimes Toothless accompanies him, either as a dragon, a black cat, a black dog, a vehicle or even as a human. Hiccup almost always has a prosthetic leg like in the film, but it is usually from an everyday accident and not from the Red Death.  

Jack Frost

His devil-may-care attitude may serve as a defense mechanism for a deeper trauma, either involving his little sister or a near death experience.
