How to Train Your Dragon 2

In the film, when Valka first encountered a dragon rider on a Night Fury, she sent Clawlifter to grab him from above. Clawlifter grabbed the young man off his dragon's back, sending the Night Fury plummeting into the icy sea below. Clawlifter then carried him into his mountain, right behind Valka. After landing, the boy attempted to train him but Valka stopped him right before the two of them could touch. It was soon revealed that the boy was none other than Hiccup— Valka's son.


  • It is the first Shovelhelm known by name, the second being Guslout.
