Our Wingmaiden tribe was charged with a divine mission. A mission given to us by Freya herself, and one we fulfill with great honor to this day. [src]
  — Atali  

Atali is the leader of the all female Wingmaiden tribe. She was first introduced in Dragons: Race to the Edge, Season 5, during the episode, "Snotlout's Angels".


Meeting the Dragon Riders

A toast and greetings to our new friends from Dragon's Edge. You have taught us a lesson in tolerance and acceptance. You will always be welcome here on the Island of Wingmaidens. Every one of you. And to the conclusion of the nesting season. Now that it is over, there is much work to be done, but no other task brings us such joy. [src]
  — Atali  

When Snotlout falls from Hookfang during a storm and falls into the sea during the events in "Snotlout's Angels", he is rescued by Atali and brought back to her island to recover. When he wakes up, finding himself surrounded by beautiful women, he thinks he's died and gone to Valhalla. Atali insists otherwise, and is greatly disturbed by his disrespectful attitude toward women. To force him to show respect, she and the other maidens suggest he's going to be main ingredient in their "Sacred Stew", and then tie him up.

Meanwhile, Astrid, Ruffnut, and Heather are flying toward Wingmaiden Island on Windshear, since Heather could sense something familiar that the inhabitants and her dragon share, and are met by Atali and two of her escorts. She compliments them on how beautiful Windshear is, and politely asks why they're in Wingmaiden territory. She invites them to rest up and eat before heading on their way. So the three Riders follow her.

Once on the island, Atali introduces a baby Razorwhip to them and shares with the girls the reason for their tribe's existence. However, they are interupted when a Wingmaiden warns Atali of Snotlout's escape. The girls returns to the other riders and Atali explains to Hiccup Snotlout's situation. They all go to rescue him and are successful.

Later that night, Atali makes a toast in honor of the dragon riders, announcing the end of the nesting season, which meant new responsibilities.

War with the Dragon Hunters and Flyers

Atali: "Trader Johann? I assume you did not see that one coming."
Snotlout: "You also like being right."
Atali: "He is a threat of most serious proportions, not only to you, the Berserkers and Defenders of the Wing, but to us Wingmaidens and our sacred mission."
Hiccup: "Which is why we need you at this summit meeting."[src]
  — Atali learns of Johann's true nature  

In "Chain of Command" Atali and the Wingmaidens greeted Hiccup and Snotlout when they informed them that Trader Johann is a turncoat and he is working for the Hunters and the Flyers. Atali agreed to go with Hiccup to the summit meeting at Defenders of the Wing Island and will take Nadia with her, much to Minden's dismay. Minden’s recklessness got the entire island in trouble because she took all the guards to extinguish a fire caused by the Flyers as a distraction, with the entire island defenseless the Dragon Flyers led by Krogan easily led waste to the island, and wounded Atali, forcing Minden and the Wingmaidens to evacuate the island with Hiccup and Snotlout into the caverns. Hiccup was eventually captured and the Wingmaidens together with Snotlout, Dagur, Mala, and the Dragon Riders, freed him and Toothless and chased the Flyers of the island. After Atali regained consciousness, she assured Minden that she is her second-in-command and a trusted Wingmadien. Following that, they hid the Dragon Eye Lenses on Wingmaiden Island in the tomb of the Razorwhips.

In "Ruff Transition", Atali and her wingmaidens prepared to take on new baby Razorwhips. However, the last Razorwhip went to Ruffnut Thorston instead of her. Atali tried to take Wingnut to no avail. She then allowed Ruffnut to become a wingmaiden.

In "King of Dragons, Part 2", Atali and her tribe then came to aid Hiccup's Dragon Riders and Dagur the Deranged's Berserkers in defending Berserker Island against Johann's Dragon Hunters and Krogan's Dragon Flyers. Together, they defeated Johann's and Krogan's forces. Atali then served as a bridesmaid at Dagur's and Mala's wedding.

Physical Appearance

Atali wears similar clothing to Heather and the other Wingmaidens, which all appear to be made from shed scales of metallic colored Razorwhip dragons. Her hair is a dark strawberry blonde, pulled back in a pony tail braid. She wears a silver and bronze circlet around her head, which extends down to her jaw at the sides and has on a one-sleeve silver and bronze tunic with matching shoulder, arm and leg guards, bronze belt, purple pants and light brown boots.


Atali is very polite and gracious, though has little patience for any disrespect. She is very gentle and loving towards the baby Razorwhips.



Minden looks up to Atali and had always been eager to prove her worth to the chieftess. Minden felt ashamed when her reckless decision resulted in Atali being injured, but continued to fight against the Dragon Flyers after an encouragement from Snotlout. Atali praised Minden for learning from her mistakes, knowing that she could be a great leader someday.

Snotlout Jorgenson

Snotlout and Atali were first introduced to each other in "Snotlout's Angels". After getting into a fight with Astrid, Snotlout meets the Wingmaidens in which he, at first, thinks are the other Riders in costumes. Later on during a buffet, Snotlout finds out Atali had been planning to add him into their "sacred stew" as there are no men allowed on their island.

Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III

After resolving the conflict Snotlout mildly instigated, Hiccup and Atali became allies and friends. They worked together in figuring out the best place to hide the Dragon Eye lenses, as well as in dealing with Johann and the Dragon Flyers.


During the Grand Transition in "Ruff Transition", Atali is surprised that Wingnut chose Ruffnut instead of her as his Wingmaiden. Eventually, Wingnut chooses to be with Atali so that Ruffnut can remain with the Dragon Riders.
