|“||Following her first encounters with the Dragon Riders, Heather has undergone an evolution of her own, turning from a sweet and innocent pawn into a hardened and edgy warrior seeking justice.
While venturing out on her own, Heather came across Windshear, an injured and abandoned Razorwhip dragon. Recalling the lessons she learned from her time on Berk, Heather nursed Windshear back to health and trained her to fly again. Aside from her wits, Heather's next sharpest weapons are the Razorwhip scales studding her armor. Now a dragon riding team of their own, Heather and Windshear attack any pirate ships they see and redistribute the loot to the pirates' victims. But all of this will change when their paths cross with the Dragon Riders once more, and Heather learns of a secret that reveals her true past and changes her future...
Heather has green eyes which have been described as "dazzling". Long black hair frames her face with a fringe parted on the right side and a side braid placed over her left shoulder. She also seems to wear some kind of dark eyeliner and eye shadow in Dragons: Riders of Berk.
In Dragons: Riders of Berk, Heather wears a light grey shirt that goes halfway down her forearms with a leather vest over it, a hollow horn attached to her waist and an off-white skirt underneath. She wears brown pants, wristbands, and boots with decorative roping. All of her clothing is patched and bears a generally unneat, rough look.
In Dragons: Race to the Edge, Heather's appearance has a drastic change. She still wears her hair in the same style as before but it is noticeably longer and she no longer wears eyeliner. She now wears a long-sleeve, light gray shirt with a black, short-sleeved hooded shirt over it, a brown mask to hide her identity, a brown leather vest, wristbands, dark gray pants and brown boots. She has three black belts, as well as one that holds her horn and a Dragon Eye lens. Heather has metallic-like shoulder guards, bracers, knee pads and skirt, all from the scales from Windshear.
Heather also possesses a satchel similar to the ones that the Dragon Riders use, except it is black in color and has no crest on it.
In Season 4's episode, "Saving Shattermaster", Heather wears a long-sleeve black jumpsuit, with black shoulder pads and arm guards. In the latter, she also wears a matching mask obscuring her mouth and nose.
|“||We'd rather die in battle than hide in shame. [src]||”|
Heather is perceptive and able to think her way out of trouble. She is also willing to go to great lengths to help her own cause.
Heather often comes across as two-faced, sly and untrustworthy, and has herself a hard time putting trust in others. She is deceitful and fickle by nature, prone to being secretive and lying to people that proved to be worthy of her trust. While not easy for her, she is also willing to abuse the trust of her friends and hurt them (emotionally at least) to further whatever agenda she has, which often ended up putting the Riders at risk. She could also go as far as to put innocent people she didn't know in danger, seen when she tried to deliver the Book of Dragons to the Outcasts (who would have undoubtedly tried to use trained dragons to destroy Berk), even though she did it to save her adoptive parents. She has also shown to mislead and guilt-trip her friends for personal gains.
She seems to take pride in her abilities with deception, maybe even to the point of hubris. She gloated to Astrid Hofferson about how she was able to win the favor of her male friends and her own dragon, Stormfly. However, she might have done it to merely keep up appearances.
After losing her adoptive family, she is less emotionally stable and often makes the wrong choices, even if is for what she personally believes to be the right reasons. This shows that the loss of her family unhinged her a little bit. She had even persuaded Astrid to lie to Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III, which the Berkian had never done before.
Heather is also somewhat spiteful and prone to holding grudges against people, like her brother. Nevertheless, she was able to overcome it in the end, eventually showing forgiveness.
In spite of all her problematic behavior, Heather has a strong moral drive. She ends up becoming a vigilante for justice by returning stolen loot from pirates to their rightful owners. It is also demonstrated that she will go to great lengths in order to protect those she cares about, as she didn't want the Riders to join her mission to keep them out of danger. While nervous around dragons at first, after her brief stay on Berk, followed much later by meeting Windshear, she ended up developing an interest in them. It leads her to become determined to protect them, such as when she wanted to help Garffiljorg back to his family and take down the Dragon Hunters for good.
Heather is very observant, and thus knowledgeable. She asks Astrid if she and Hiccup are together when she notices how close they are.
She has also shown a caring and attentive side, as when she sang to Garff and calmed him, refusing to let the Riders abandon him, on the grounds that she "knew what it was like to be alone".
Abilities, Skills, and Talents
- Acting: Heather is a very good actress as she was able to fool the Dragon Riders for a few days, except Astrid Hofferson, who saw her sneaking around in "Heather Report, Part 1". These skills are used again when infiltrating the Dragon Hunters. ("Night of the Hunters, Part 1" and "Night of the Hunters, Part 2") Only Viggo Grimborn was able to figure her out in "Maces and Talons, Part 1".
- Strength and Fighting Skills: Heather is pretty tough as she is able to take on Astrid, as well as able to scale the walls in Berk's prison and stay at the top for some time. ("Heather Report, Part 2") Heather became much stronger after her village was attacked. She is capable of taking on at least three Dragon Hunters at once, as shown in "Maces and Talons, Part 2". Heather's weapon is a double axe that is able to fold at the end. She prefers close combat, so she can stare at her enemies in the eye, as stated in "Have Dragon Will Travel, Part 1" and "Have Dragon Will Travel, Part 2". However, her skills appear to be inferior to that of Viggo Grimborn and Krogan.
- Dragon Training and Riding: Even with very little time spent on Berk, Heather picked up on Dragon Training pretty quickly, as all the dragons have taken a liking to her. Even though she wasn't very fast, she was also capable of flying with Stormfly. Her skills have improved by Dragons: Race to the Edge, with her training her own dragon, Windshear.
- Intelligence: She is shown to be pretty clever to come up with a great lie to fool everyone. She even came up with ideas to escape from prison in "Heather Report, Part 2". She was also able to beat Fishlegs Ingerman in the game Maces and Talons three times in a row in "Gold Rush".
- Crafting: Heather seems to have a bit knowledge of arts and crafts as she gave Hiccup advice on how to increase Toothless' speed with a shorter connecting rod. In "Heather Report, Part 1", she also made her own battle axe and was able to create her own armor from Windshear's scales. In "Have Dragon Will Travel, Part 1", she most likely built Windshear's saddle as well.
- Berserk: When she was younger, Heather didn't display any tendencies. These traits began to appear after Dagur's attack. She seemed to enjoy fighting more than before. This and the loss of her family have also made Heather a bit unstable, though not dangerously so. Heather admitted to Astrid she was afraid that she had the same Berserker insanity as her brother, but Astrid assured her she was nothing like Dagur in "To Heather or Not to Heather".
- Cooking: Heather is revealed to be an excellent cook. Tuffnut Thorston himself cannot get enough of her yak-chops. She appears to have taken over preparing meals for the gang as of "To Heather or Not to Heather".
- Singing: Heather is an excellent singer. She was the only one Garffiljorg did not blast with amber.
|“||Heather if you're reading this, I guess that's bad news for me. Sorry, but I couldn't let Hiccup fly you into a trap. Tell our little brother that if he really wants to hurt Viggo, hit his next dragon auction. It moves around, but if he turns over enough rocks, some worm will tell him where it is. One other thing, I didn't kill our father. When he disappeared, I let people believe that, so they would think I was tough enough to be chief. I did a lot of things I am sorry for, but I couldn't rest in peace knowing you thought I did that. Be safe. Your brother, Dagur. [src]||”|
|— Dagur's letter to Heather.|
Dagur is Heather's older brother. They were estranged as children, but once they were older they reconciled and became exceedingly close.

|— Heather and Atali about Windshear|
Windshear is Heather's dragon. They have an unbreakable bond, having both experienced and risen above tragedy.

|— Heather telling Astrid the reason she lied to the Dragon Riders|
Heather cares very deeply about her parents and would do whatever it took to save them from Alvin as shown in "Heather Report, Part 1" and "Heather Report, Part 2". It is revealed that they are not her biological parents, but she still loved them. Losing them and her village became her motivation to attack Dagur in "Have Dragon Will Travel, Part 1" and "Have Dragon Will Travel, Part 2".
Even after all the Heather and Dagur had been through while she was with the Dragon Hunters, she still hadn't quite forgiven him about destroying her island until his apparent death in "Family on the Edge".
Fishlegs is Heather's boyfriend in season three and they are confirmed to still be dating in season five of Race to the Edge. He is the reason Heather decides to join the dragon riders and stay with them on Dragon's Edge.
|“||You have been looking for a home since the first day I met you, Heather. And maybe this is finally, your chance to find it. Just know that we will always... I will always be here for you. [src]||”|
|— Fishlegs to Heather right before she hugs and kisses him.|
- Main article: Fishlegs and Heather's Relationship
Astrid is Heather's closest female friend, though the two did not start out that way. In the beginning, Astrid mistrusted and subconsciously envied Heather, whilst Heather bristled at Astrid's unfriendliness and took the opportunity to gloat in her unprovable suspicion of Heather. However, in Heather Report Part II, the pair come to trust each other in a battle against the Outcasts, due to Astrid saving Heather's parents, and Heather in turn saving the Riders on whilst on Stormfly. Heather and Astrid later become the ideal partners in battle, and outside the battlefield, best friends.
|“||Thanks, Astrid. It was nice having a friend again. [src]||”|

|“||You guys, he's too young to know right from wrong. He's just following his instincts. I know what it's like to be all alone in the world. [src]||”|
After the Riders rescued a dragon egg from the Dragon Hunters, the egg hatched back on Dragon's Edge. The Riders didn't know what it was, however, the baby dragon wouldn't stop crying for the whole day, annoying the Dragon Riders except for Heather who felt sorry for the little dragon. The baby dragon, now named Garffiljorg revealed itself to be a baby Death Song after Chicken sang to it, Garff shot amber at Chicken trying to eat her until she was saved by Tuffnut. The Riders planned to abandon Garff since it was too dangerous to go back to Melody Island. However, Heather refused to abandon him, knowing what it was like to be all alone in the world. As Garff kept on crying, Heather sang a lullaby to the baby dragon, giving her and the Riders the idea of singing to him to train him. Although the Riders tried to sing to him, it all didn't work so well and Heather still didn't want him abandoned, so Hiccup decided to take him to Melody Island. On their way, Garff fell asleep in Heather's arms from a combination of her singing and dragon nip from Fishlegs. When they arrived, the adult Death Song shot amber at all the Riders and rejected Garff's singing, Garff soon jumped in to protect her and all the other Riders by singing the songs the adult likes. When they finally bond, Garff looks down at Heather, but Heather tells him to go on and Garff flies off with his new father.
|“||You're so sweet. Thank you, Hiccup. You've always been a great friend to me. [src]||”|
|— Heather to Hiccup|
Hiccup welcomed Heather when she arrived on Berk, even telling her to consider the island her home until they could figure things out for her. Unlike the other boys, Heather didn't flirt with Hiccup but acted more innocent. She also helped him with increasing Toothless' speed. Hiccup naively believed Heather over Astrid when she tried to warn him that the newcomer was not who she seemed. Hiccup finally believed Astrid when she told him that Heather stole Stormfly and the Book of Dragons, which he was just looking for. After working things out with the Dragon Riders, Heather promised Hiccup and Astrid that if she needed help she would ask.
When they met up again, Hiccup was put off by how much Heather had changed. When Hiccup questioned why she attacked the ship from earlier and told her the others were there for her, she changed the subject by thanking him for his concern. After saving her from being captured by Dagur, Heather revealed how she was separated from her birth family.
Hiccup supports Heather's relationship with Fishlegs and is happy to have her join them on the Edge. He even tried to help her train Windshear. Hiccup also took Heather's wish to keep Dagur at distance into consideration, and in "Family on the Edge" attempted to keep her presence on the Edge a secret from Dagur. Hiccup is referred to as Dagur and Heather's little brother by Dagur in his last letter to Heather. This hints that Heather is actually older than Hiccup.
Hiccup and Heather go undercover and are both shocked to discover Dagur is alive and among the Dragon Hunters. When Dagur attempts to explain himself, Heather is displeased while Hiccup wants to give him a chance. He eventually ends up convincing her to save their mutual brother.
|— Astrid and Heather discussing Snotlout|
Heather was a little more flirtatious with Snotlout than the others, most likely because he flirted with her. She did thank him for "saving" her but was more interested in learning about Hookfang. When Heather left Berk, Snotlout told her to write to him, but she just smiled and shook her head. After meeting up again, Snotlout continued to flirt with Heather, only this time she had no problem pushing him aside. When demonstrating Windshear's abilities, she used them on Snotlout, though not directly.
Heather later tells Astrid she doesn't like macho Vikings.
|— Heather apologizing to Tuffnut for her actions|
While learning about the Hideous Zippleback, Heather worked with Tuffnut. When he suggested getting rid of his sister so they could share Barf and Belch, Heather preferred to focus on the dragon. Tuffnut actually questioned why the Riders were friends with Heather after she nearly attacked them, locked up their dragons, and sneaked away. Though the sincerity of her apology got the better of him.
In "Have Dragon Will Travel, Part 2", Ruff was very impressed by Windshear, complimenting Heather at an uncomfortably close range. In "Edge of Disaster, Part 2", Heather helped Ruffnut and loaned Windshear to her so she could escape. Though later when she got her dragon back, Heather punched Ruffnut for head-butting her earlier.
Tuffnut is the only character so far to call Heather out on her behavior.
|— Heather thanking Johann for his help, before the latter's reveal|
Johann is Heather's informant. He gives her the information she needs to find pirates that have raided other tribes, and Dagur as well.
Johann does appear to care about Heather, not just as a partner, but as a friend as he hugged her when he saw her again in "Have Dragon Will Travel, Part 2". When the Terrible Terror letter he sent to her returned and saw her camp was abandoned, he had feared the worst but was relieved that Heather was alright.
It is unknown what happens to their friendship after it is revealed that Johann is evil.
|“||I think your dragon likes me. See you later, Stormfly. [src]||”|
Heather quickly bonded with Stormfly after she gave the Nadder some chicken. However, she had no experience riding dragons and couldn't control her. When Heather tried to ride her again, Stormfly was unsure at first until Heather mentioned finding Astrid. Even years later, Heather remembered how much Stormfly loved chicken.
|“||Actually, Hiccup took me on Toothless. It was beautiful. [src]||”|
|— Heather to Snotlout about her ride on Toothless|
Toothless was the first of the dragons she met and was initially scared of him, but soon grew to like him. In "Have Dragon Will Travel, Part 2", when Dagur approached her, Toothless defended Heather, keeping the Berserker chief away from her.
|— Heather learning to ride a Hideous Zippleback|
Barf let her sit on him while she was learning about dragons and fired at her command.
|“||I have to say Snotlout, your dragon really is the most impressive. [src]||”|
|— Heather showing interest in Hookfang|
Hookfang seemed pleased when she pet him and was shown to have an interest in her. The dragon helped her throughout the episode "Sins of the Past", when the girl was continuously chased by Dragon Flyers and got separated from her dragon.
|— Fishlegs and Heather examining the Gronckle|
Meatlug seemed appreciative of Heather's compliments and the two seemed to like one another mutually.
She allowed Heather to ride her in "To Heather or Not to Heather", and together they managed to work as a team to defeat a group of Dragon Hunters attacking the Edge.
|“||Please! You have to trust me! When I get back to Outcast Island with that book, the wait will be worth it. [src]||”|
|— Heather to Savage|
By "Night of the Hunters, Part 1", when Heather joined Dagur in his alliance with the Dragon Hunters, she was occasionally seen with Savage as well. He followed her orders as he does with Dagur, often addressing her as "Ma'am".
Alvin the Treacherous and the Outcast Tribe
While Heather did work for the Outcasts for a short time, it was only because Alvin threatened her parents unless she found out Berk's dragon secrets. She told Savage that they had a book on controlling dragons and begged for more time. While she managed to deliver the book, she was captured by the Dragon Riders. Heather later joined the riders in fighting the Outcasts.
|— Ryker suspecting Heather|
Ryker did not trust Heather since she rode a dragon but still kept her around. Even though Heather was not on Ryker's side, she still followed his orders. When Ryker suspected her for treason, she stood up for herself, and so did Dagur.
|“||Pity, really. I'd hoped you'd be a better adversary. [src]||”|
|— Viggo Grimborn|
Heather planned to lure Viggo out to stop the Dragon Hunters. When she first met Viggo, he talked about fooling people, using the game Maces and Talons as an example. When Viggo told Heather he believed that Dagur, or even Ryker, was responsible for the failed plans, Heather told Hiccup and Astrid about his plan to capture a Flightmare, unaware he already knew she was the traitor.
In "Defenders of the Wing, Part 1", when she joined Hiccup and Astrid for the meeting with Viggo, she was up for taking him out there since he didn't have his men. Viggo wasn't impressed by Heather and called her a disappointing adversary.

- Like Heather's modern non-Norse appearance, her name is also historically incorrect. Heather is a Middle English name and it didn't exist until centuries after the Viking era.
- Heather is the first adoptive child in the franchise.
- Due to a large number of patches on her clothes when she's first introduced, it is possible Heather comes from a poor island. She is the only character with patched and torn clothing who is not a villain.
- A piece of Heather's concept art is seen during the end credits of Dragons: Riders of Berk from "Heather Report, Part 1" to "We Are Family, Part 2".
- Heather is the only original character who did not return in Dragons: Defenders of Berk. However, she returned in Race to the Edge.
- Heather and Eret, Son of Eret, from How to Train Your Dragon 2, share some similarities as both characters worked for either the antagonists respectively when they met the Dragon Riders. But their allegiance to the antagonists was not out of loyalty, and both characters would join the Riders in defeating the respective antagonists. Coincidentally enough, both also have black hair.
- In School of Dragons, she narrates the Skrill's bio at the Hatchery, instead of Gobber like the other dragons. She also says she would like to test how strong its electricity is. This could be a hint about her origins.
- Heather is the first Dragon Rider not originally from Berk.
- Heather's shoulder guards in her later appearances are similar to the ones Dagur used to wear (Dagur wears one layer on his right shoulder and four layers on his left, while Heather wears one layer on her left shoulder and three on her right).
- Heather's return is similar to Valka's in How to Train Your Dragon 2:
- Their first impressions indicate they might be villains.
- Both are masked attacking raiders.
- Both of their dragons are in the Sharp Class.
- Even though her Dragon Rider avatar is aged up in School of Dragons, her alchemist one is not.
- According to Richard Hamilton, there is a slight chance that Heather might appear in their graphic novels, which take place after the second film.
- Heather is the first female character that wasn't written by director Dean DeBlois. The second and third being Mala and Atali respectively.
- Heather's Race to the Edge appearance was designed by Visual Development Painter Jessica Bulinski. 
- Mae Whitman, Heather's voice actress, previously appeared in a franchise alongside David Faustino, the voice of Dagur the Deranged. Mae Whitman portrayed Katara in Avatar: The Last Airbender whilst David Faustino played as Mako in the former's follow-up series The Legends of Korra.
