- "The Bog-Burglars were a tribe of particularly fearsome female warriors who lived on an island some way to the west of the Isle of Berk. The Hooligans had a long-running feud with the Bog-Burglars which had started many, many years ago, when the Bog-Burglars stole the shield of Hiccup's great-great-grandfather, Grimbeard the Ghastly."
- ―Book 3
Bog-Burglars appear to only be females, a kind of Viking 'Amazon' tribe. It is unclear if there are any men in the Tribe at all, or how they beget offspring. They are Viking warriors just as the rest of the Archipelago, and do anything that a male Viking would do. Though the Books tacitly follow a patriarchal culture for the Vikings, it is neither strange or unusual to have women in a position of power or as a 'Viking Hero', so the Bog-Burglars are afforded all the power that men have.
The Bog-Burglars seem to have closer ties to the Hooligans than most other tribes and are often having competitions with each other. To the great annoyance of Stoick the Vast who always bets on the Hairy Hooligans winning these competitions, the Bog-Burglars usually win as 'unfortunately Bog-Burglar's are as good as burglary as they are at everything else.' Though there is a 'Blood Feud' between the two because a Bog-Burglar stole Grimbeard the Ghastly's Shield, by the events of the Book series, this Feud is ended in How to Speak Dragonese.
Before the events of the series, the Bog-Burglars stole a shield from the Hairy Hooligan Tribe.
As shown in How to Twist a Dragon's Tale, the Bog-Burglars almost had to evacuate the Archipelago with the rest of the tribes.
In A Hero's Guide to Deadly Dragons, they had a burglary contest, which the Bog-Burglars win.
In How to Ride a Dragon's Storm, The Hairy Hooligans, Bog-Burglars, and Murderous Tribe join together for a swimming contest, which Fishlegs, Camicazi and Hiccup win.
As shown in How to Break a Dragon's Heart, the Bog-Burglars searched for Camicazi who had gone missing.
