Stoick the Vast is the chief of the Isle of Berk, the husband of Valhallarama, and the father of Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III in the How to Train Your Dragon book series.


Stoick the Vast was married to Valhallarama after he found the Fire Stone for Old Wrinkly (Valhallarama's father). They had a son and named him Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III. In the books, Stoick the Vast is constantly trying to decide right from wrong with his son, because Hiccup is constantly challenging his Viking traditions. Stoick is not the smartest man alive, but he does have good qualities. He is very loving towards Hiccup, which is not generally considered proper behavior for a Chief. Although Stoick avoids fighting far more than most Vikings, this is not due to cowardice or incompetence. He has shown himself to be one of the greatest warriors in the Archipelago, fighting his way out of an enormous pack of Skullions and coming in second in the inter-tribal Sword Fighting competition.
