Stormfly is Astrid/Camicazi's pet Dragon. She first appeared in A Hero's Guide to Deadly Dragons and since has appeared in every following novel. In the film adaptation, rather, she is a Deadly Nadder and her rider is Astrid.
In the BooksEdit
Stormfly is very curious, playful, and loves to flirt with other dragons. Toothless, & Hookfang dragon, fell in love with her at first sight. Stormfly is also a pathological liar, though it is usually easy to tell when she is lying, because she turns a shade of violet.
Quest to steal How to Train Your Dragon from the LibraryEdit
When Hiccup, Camicazi, and Fishlegs infiltrated the Meathead Public Library, (A hero's guide to Deadly Dragons) Camicazi used Stormfly to guide their way. When Hiccup and Camicazi were fighting the Hairy Scary Librarian, his flailing arm hit Stormfly's delicate skull and she passed out. When she woke up, she was amnesiac, which made it impossible for the Vikings to retrace their way out of the Library.
Stormfly saved Hiccup, Fishlegs, and Camicazi from the Poisonous Piffleworm crowding the dragon whisperer's way (the secret tunnel behind the bookshelf in the Meathead public library) by whistling the nation anthem of the Bogburglers. Camacazi, Hiccup, and Fishlegs borded the unnamed Stealthdragon, whom Stormfly flirted with, causing Toothless to become jealous. She remembered a few things after smelling the horrible stench of the murderous madguts and slowly regained her memory after that.
Journey on the American Dream 2Edit
Stormfly is kidnapped by Raptortongues along with Hiccup, Fishlegs, Camicazi and Toothless and taken to Norbert the Nutjob on the ship the American Dream 2. Stormfly was assisting Camicazi in the intertribal friendly swimming race as her hunting dragon would make her easier to spot from the beach and can help fight off predators.
Stormfly and Toothless provide the answer the escape problem on board the American Dream 2 as they inflitrate the cooking tent and eat dragon nip alerting Hiccup to its existance and that it could send the Hysteric tribe to sleep while they make their escape. Unfortunately Stormfly becomes distressed whilst Camicazi is steering the ship and causes her to lose control and the ship to lurch landing Hiccup in the path of some polar serpants.
During their long swim away from American and back across the ocean Stormfly and Toothless try to persuade Camicazi and Fishlegs not to swim across the ocean. Stormfly and Toothless fly above the humans when they are swimming across the ocean and alonside them when they use Norbert's flying machine. They are last seen flying above Camicazi, Hiccup and Fishlegs by the viking tribes and landing on the table next to the ticking thing.
Kidnap by Ug the UglythugEdit
Stormfly was accompanying Camicazi in her boat the Stormy Petrel when a storm caused them to be lost at sea and kidnapped by Ug the Uglythug. Camicazi was sent to the Isle of Berserk to be held in one of their tree prisons and Stormfly was kept in a cage in the dragon stables until she learnt better manners but her sentence was cut short by her rescue by Humongously Hotshot the Hero and the other ten fiances.
Stormfly was returned to Berk and left on the Hooligan throne asleep in Fishlegs lobster pot and upoan awakening told Camicazi that she bit that rude Uglythug many many times.
In the filmEdit
In the film, a Deadly Nadder is shown to be kept locked up for Dragon Training . Later in the movie, while battling the Red Death, Astrid has chosen the same Deadly Nadder to ride and join the fight. At the end of the film, we see Astrid riding on the Nadder, along with the other young Vikings and their dragons.
In Gift of the Night FuryEdit
In Gift of the Night Fury, this Nadder's name is revealed to be Stormfly, and Astrid is very close to her. In the short film, Stormfly and the rest of Berk's dragons leave suddenly, and Astrid was sad that her dragon is gone.
It is revealed Stormfly and the dragons left to lay their eggs and hatch them. Stormfly herself becomes a mother of three Nadder hatchlings. Thanks to Hiccup and his efforts, the dragons all return to Berk, and Astrid is reunited with Stormfly and overjoyed to see Stormfly's new babies.
In Legend of the Boneknapper DragonEdit
Stormfly makes a very short appearance in Legend of the Boneknapper Dragon. She is seen along with Astrid, dumping water over the Belch House in an effort to put out the fire, that Gobber claims to have been caused by the Boneknapper dragon.
In Riders of BerkEditIn the TV series, Astrid still has Stormfly. Stormfly is the most beautiful dragon in the Dragon Training Academy. Astrid wakes up every morning and Stormfly is the first thing she sees. In the preview episode of the show, Astrid is heartbroken at the thought of having Stormfly taken away, saying that she was used to having the dragon around. It should also be noted that Astrid is very excited in getting her dragon back when Hiccup announces that they can keep their dragons. In episode 3-"Animal House ", where dragons were revealed to have protective instincts, Stormfly is seen protecting sheep with her wings gently and in a comforting way at the end of the episode. Stormfly also appears to be rather intelligent, caring and protective of Astrid. The pair seem to have a strong bond, though not quite as strong as the bond between Hiccup and Toothless. In episode 7, 9 & 11, it was revealed that Stormfly will shoot her tail spines if someone touches her on her blind spot, when she is ill, or when she is startled while sleeping. In episode 10-"Heather Report Part 1", it is shown that Stormfly is beginning to rival Toothless in speed, as Astrid was experimenting with her diet, and apparently, it was working (though Toothless may also not be as fast as he once was due to the weight of his prosthetic tail fin). Later in the same episode, it was revealed that Stormfly was able to fly faster because Astrid gives her a basketful of chicken everyday, rather than fish. She was also ridden by Heather, in episodes 10 & 11, although Hiccup noted that Heather was not capable of riding Stormfly at the same speed as Astrid could push her at. Astrid still continues to give her chicken, as it was shown in episode 13-"When Lightning Strikes". This indicates that chicken gives more stamina to a dragon, and it increases a dragon's speed, or maybe this indicates that dragons are faster and have more stamina when fed their natural diet.
- In the movie, Stormfly's wings are mainly yellow with some blue, but in the series they are mostly blue with some red and no yellow. This could be a mistake or it could be the fact that dragons' colors change as they age.
- Stormfly and Astrid must have some type of sync as Astrid could do handsprings and cartwheels while Stormfly flew in the air during the Thawfest Games.
- Stormfly seems to rely more on her tail spines than her fire.
