Arrogance, Innocence, and Patience, or more commonly known as Shadow are the three-headed Deadly Shadow who is the riding dragon of Fishlegs in the books. Arrogance is the head on the right, Patience is the middle one, and Innocence is the left one. They belonged to Termagant, until she died, and now they are Fishlegs'.


With Termagant

Arrogance, Innocence and Pateince were formerly the riding dragon of Termagant, an heiress to a tribe. They both shared a very close relationship, although Arrogance, Innocence and Patience couldn’t understand Norse. They promised her that they would protect her baby, Fishlegs, when she was forced to send him out to sea in a lobster pot. However, they lost baby Fishlegs when a thick mist fell.

With the Dragon Rebellion

During the Second Dragon War, they were hired by Furious to assassinate Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III, but they could not get him. When they did find him, they also found he was wearing Fishlegs' lobster-claw necklace, and thought he was Fishlegs. They told him the story of the necklace while he tried to get them out of a trap. Later, when they rescued Fishlegs, they became his riding dragon.

Ever since, Shadow has been a part of the Companions of the Dragonmark.
