Throk is a new character in Race to the Edge. He is Mala's second in command. 


Throk will protect Mala at all costs and was even ready to sacrifice himself for her in Out Of The Frying Pan. He can be mistrusting but when he realised the Dragon Riders were trying to save the Great Protector he became a helpful ally.

Throk and his fellow defenders captured Hiccup and his riders, believing them to be Dragon Hunters.

Dragons: Race to the Edge, Season 4

Defenders of the Wing, Part 2

He and Heather worked together to stop the lava flow from reaching the village until the riders came back with the Eruptodon.

Midnight Scrum

When word of the bounty that Viggo had placed on Hiccup reached Caldera Cay, Mala sent Throk to protect and bring Hiccup back to the safety of their island, should he be in the hands of any of the bounty hunters.

Throk was able to rescue Hiccup from Savage, but before he could bring Hiccup back to Caldera Cay, a masked man overpowered him and was later discovered by the other Dragon Riders. When they discovered where Throk's attacker was taking Hiccup and took off to save him, Throk wished them luck.

Saving Shattermaster

He assisted at Snotlout's trial to become the king and was impressed by his luck. He was the one who had to shoot an arrow at Snotlout but failed thanks to Toothless.

Out of the Frying Pan

Throk offered to deliver the Eruptodon egg himself but Mala refused, saying that a queen must be willing to sacrifice herself for her people. Later, when Hiccup, Fishlegs, and Mala failed to show up, he and Astrid attempted to go after them using the diving bell. They failed, however, ending with them being stuck in the lava. When Hiccup, Fishlegs, and Mala came to rescue them, Throk was willing to sacrifice himself to allow the others to escape, saying that his only mission was to protect his queen and get her to safety. Fortunately, he was saved by the Great Protector before he could be killed in the lava.

Shell Shocked, Part 1

When the Shellfire attacked the Defenders of the Wing, Throk and Mala were left to guard Viggo by the Dragon Riders while they stopped the dragon's attacks. However, the explosions allowed him to escape, with Throk claiming it was all his fault. After the riders left the island, he and Mala rebuilt the village.

Physical Appearance

Throk has long, red hair that is shaven in an undercut. He wears a sleeveless, green shirt, with black shoulder pads and arm guards, dark green pants with black boots, and black armor like the rest of his tribe (mainly males'). He seems to have faint stubble of beard on his face.



Throk is Mala's second in command and the one that is the most loyal to her.

Great Protector

Baby Eruptodon

Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III

Throk had first mistook Hiccup and his fellow dragon riders as Dragon Hunsters that wanted to capture the Great Protector. Eventually, they become allies through several difficult situations.

Astrid Hofferson

Snotlout Jorgenson


  • He seems to have great respect for Mala as he obeys every one of her orders.
    • He didn't even hesitate to sacrifice himself for her, opting to remain in the bathysphere in the lava for her to get to safety.
    • It is implied that his loyalty to Queen Mala is due to him harboring romantic feelings toward her.
    • Like Heather, Dagur, and Mala, a bit of Throk's armor comes in layers.
