Phlegma was introduced in the opening scene during the dragon raid, yelling at Hiccup on his way to the Blacksmith Shop when she ran past him to fight the dragons. She is later seen in the Great Hall when Stoick discussed looking for the dragons' nest one more time before the ice sets in. She is later seen greeting Stoick after his unsuccessful attempt to find the dragons' nest, congratulating him for Hiccup's skill in Dragon Training. She later joins Stoick and the other Vikings in the attack on the dragons' nest and witnesses Hiccup's victory over the Red Death.
Phlegma has a minor role in the sequel. She appears in the crowd watching the dragon races. She later appears alongside all the other Vikings in the final fight against Drago Bludvist. She now has her own dragon; a dark gray Gronckle.
Phlegma was originally planned to be the botanist in the School of Dragons online game, but was replaced with an original character called Flora May. A few months later, Phlegma took her place. She is extensively involved in player quests, particularly those relating to botany, gardening, farming, and the environment.
She wears a small golden horned helmet with small ringed horns point up, a green sleeveless shirt made of rough material, two round metal armored plates around her breasts over the shirt. Thick brunette hair tied up, a leather, fur and metal skirt that ends on her knees and thick foot coverings tied to her legs with thin rope much like Astrid's in the second movie.
Personality and Traits
Not much is known about Phlegma's personality due to the lack of appearances and lines she has throughout the series and movies, but her reactions from the movie towards Hiccup show that her feelings towards a person are affected by their actions.
According to School of Dragons, Phlegma likes to do woodworking as a hobby, and builds a loom frame for the School.
As noted by Johann in the expansion "Secret of the Leviathan" of the game School of Dragons, Phlegma is "a wonderful — and generous — Viking".
