Stoick, as his name suggests, is very large and stocky.
Stoick is not the smartest man alive, but he does have good qualities. 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.
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. He is very loving towards Hiccup, which is not generally considered proper behavior for a Chief.
