The Isle of the Skullions is made up of one larger island, and one smaller island. When viewed from above, these two islands form a crude skull and crossbones shape.

Dragon Species

The only dragon species that lives on the Isle of the Skullions is the blind and deaf, Skullion. It was stated that there were many small reptiles, mammals, and birds that lived on the island before the Skullions arrived. Unnable to swim, the Skullions devoured them all. Because of this, it can be assumed that other dragon species existed on this island before the skullions came. The middle of the island is covered with blue mussels that feed the skullions.


As mentioned in How to Break a Dragon's Heart, one hundred years before the events of the How to Train Your Dragon book series, the Kingdom of the Wilderwest fell after the murder of Hiccup Horrendous Haddock II. This led to a sequence of events which included, King Grimbeard the Ghastly supposedly burrying his treasure here.

As shown in How to Be a Pirate, the Hooligans and Alvin-the-poor-but-honest-farmer traveled here after getting clues from the latter that Grimbeard the Ghastly's treasure was burried here. Hiccup and Fishlegs used their hunting dragons, Toothless and Horrorcow respectively to hunt for the treasure, to no avail. The two hunting dragons only found mussels, while Snotlout's hunting dragon, Fireworm, found the treasure chest.

The Hooligans opened the treasure chest, and found that it was booby trapped with the chest releasing a strong scent that woke the sleeping Skullions. They then had to battle the Skullions to get off the island.
