Hamish I was a Hooligan chieftain mentioned in the episode Portrait of Hiccup as a Buff Young Man. Fishlegs claims he is the most successful chief in the history of Berk, establishing a large and fabulous treasury. He is also the father of Hamish II.
Reign over Berk
Hamish I, as all chieftains do, had a painting done with his son, Hamish II. Their painting on a shield was then placed in the Great Hall, but as Hamish II did not fit the expected appearance and stature of a chief's son the painting depicted him as a much burlier boy. Hamish I probably instructed the artists to do so.
He was also said to be the most successful chief on Berk, accumulating a large fortune and eventually handing it over to his son.
- Hamish I has a few similarites with Grimbeard the Ghastly.
- Both were very successful Hooligan leaders.
- Both accumulated a vast treasure over their lifetimes that were hidden and to be found in the future.
- One contrast is that Hamish I's son, Hamish II hid his treasure, while Grimbeard hid his treasure himself.
