Hoark the Haggard is a Viking living on the Isle of Berk. He appears in both films, Legend of the Boneknapper Dragon, and the mobile app Dreamworks Press: Dragons. Hoark is voiced by Kieron Elliott.


First Dragon War

During a Dragon Raid in the beginning of How to Train Your Dragon, Hoark is one of the Vikings who yells at Hiccup to get back inside. Starkard later mentions Hoark when he reported to Chief Stoick what dragon species they were seeing during the raid.

Gronckles. Nadders. Zipplebacks. Oh, and Hoark saw a Monstrous Nightmare.

Hoark later was seen congratulating Stoick for Hiccup's success in Dragon Fighting, along with Ack, Starkard and Phlegma the Fierce.

Putting Out Fires

In the beginning of Legend of the Boneknapper Dragon, Hoark yells "Fire"! as Gobber's house catches on fire.


In the mobile app, Dreamworks Press: Dragons, Hoark the Haggard (voice actor: Kieron Elliot) narrates the story of a stranded Viking teen with no memory (the reader), who arrives on Berk with a Changewing egg.

Second Dragon War

In How to Train Your Dragon 2, just prior to the Second Dragon War, Hoark is seen standing near Mrs. Ack at the blacksmith stall. He overhears Hiccup telling Stoick that Drago Bludvist is enslaving all dragons.

During the attack on Berk by Drago's Bewilderbeast, Hoark, another man, and Mrs. Ack hide behind a building. He is the first villager to see Hiccup and crew arriving on the Scuttleclaw Hatchlings.

Physical Appearance

Hoark is an adult Viking with a full beard that appears to be tied in intricate knotwork at the bottom. He may also be an adult Viking with a split up the middle and tied off at the ends.


  • To Note: Due to conflicting sources and dubious designation from DreamWorks, images of Hoark the Haggard may be mixed up with that of Starkard or another unnamed Hairy Hooligan.
