The Outcast Tribe is a tribe of savage and cannibalistic Vikings. They are always at constant war with the other tribes and feared by many, due to their acts of enslaving rival tribes and eating the rival tribe's chief and his heir.
Their founder is the Royal Chief, Thugheart.
Toothless suspects Alvin the Treacherous is an Outcast. Later, as the Hairy Hooligans are returning home with Grimbeard's false treasure, they are caught by the Outcasts, where Alvin revealed his true identity to the Hooligans as the Royal Chief of The Outcasts. They chain the rest of the tribe, and prepare to kill Stoick and Hiccup, when Toothless frees the rest of the Hooligans, and a battle erupts. However a huge fire spreads across the ship and both tribes escape. Later, when Hiccup, Fishlegs, and Toothless return to the Isle of Berk, Stoick explains they dropped the Outcasts back at the Outcast lands. The cannibals swore revenge on the Hooligans.
Alvin mentions that when he returned to the Outcast Lands, they refused to have him as their Royal Chief, because the poison in the Monstrous Strangulator destroyed Alvin's hair, a bald Viking is something against their taboos. He was exiled and made an Outcast of the Outcast Tribe; an Outcast. Since Alvin's maternal grandfather was a Roman, Alvin became the Thin Prefect of Rome.
It is revealed by Excellinor, that when Grimbeard's rebellious and traitorous son, Thugheart, was exiled for tricking his father into killing another of his sons, Hiccup II, went far to the lands on south where all the other exiles, rebels and mutineers were sent to, he became their leader and started the Outcast Tribe. Since Alvin is an Outcast, and Hiccup is a Hooligan, (The Hooligans are descended from another of Grimbeard's sons, Chucklehead) this means that both Hiccup and Alvin are distant relatives.
The Outcasts participate with the other tribes in Flashburn's School of Swordfighting Tournament. Excellinor has managed to use her powers to convince the Outcasts to make Alvin their chief again.
How to Train Your Dragon (Franchise)
The Outcast tribe is known to be Outcasts of Berk. The chief of the tribe is Alvin the Treacherous who brings his tribe to Berk, seeking the "Dragon Conqueror" (Hiccup). After learning that Hiccup is a Dragon trainer, and that the Berk Vikings have learned to ride dragons, Alvin decides that the Outcasts will learn to train the dragons in order to use them to attack and destroy Berk. Alvin and his Outcast tribe have made several appearances throughout the series.
Alvin then recruits Mildew and with his help, tricks Hiccup into showing him how to train a dragon.
Following that, Alvin finally learns how to train a dragon, as he successfully trains a Whispering Death.
The TV series introduced the Outcast Tribe member Savage who was exclusive to the TV series.
Alvin and the Outcast tribe continue their attacks on Berk using Whispering Death eggs.
They also, inadvertently, use a Screaming Death egg to attack Berk.
Savage then led the Outcasts under Dagur's leadership.
For three years, the outcasts loyal to Alvin guarded Dagur and his loyal Berserker and Outcast soldiers. However, Dagur was able to fight his way past them to make his escape.
The Outcasts were then forced to abandon their island when the Frozen Skrill escaped hibernation. However, they soon returned to their home after the Skrill was calmed.
After the Dragon Hunters attack the island of the Defenders of the Wing, the Dragon Riders fear that their other allies will be next. To that end, they move to defend Outcast Island from attack, only for the Shellfire to attack Berserker Island instead.
