Bard was a Hairy Hooligan and Gobber's cousin, who was followed by a Hideous Zippleback his whole life after saving the dragon's life.


Early Life

Gobber says his cousin Bard once saved a Hideous Zippleback from a Changewing attack, and the dragon paid homage to him for the rest of his life by following him everywhere and protecting him. Gobber speaks of him in the past-tense, which suggests that he is dead.



  • Assuming Bard was alive during the time Dragons and Hooligans were enemies, it is unclear why a Viking allowed a Dragon to follow him around, or how he lived with one.
