The Dragon Riders' Auxiliary, also known as the A-team, are group of dragon riders founded by Astrid Hofferson, and that acts as a back-up force on the Isle of Berk. It first appeared in the second season of Dragons: Race to the Edge.


In "Team Astrid", following Dagur's attack on Berk, Stoick approved of Astrid Hofferson's idea to train a group of back up riders to defend Berk. Astrid then trained her trainees hard at the Dragon Academy. The auxiliary then assisted Astrid, Stoick, Hiccup and his riders in defending Dragon's Edge. They were able to drive Dagur's fleet away from the edge. Astrid then assigned Gustav to lead the Auxiliary in her absence.

In "A Time to Skrill", the auxiliary defended Berk against the Frozen Skrill.
