Stoick: "Where did you get this?"
Hiccup: "It's Heather's."[src]
  — Hiccup shows Heather's horn to his father  

Heather's horn is one of her main accessories. It was one of the many presents given to her father, Oswald the Agreeable, from allies all over the Archipelago — to congratulate him for the birth of his daughter Heather. This gift, in particular, turned out to be from the Chief of the Hairy Hooligans, Stoick the Vast, as it has his chief seal on it.


He gave me this horn. I don't know if it's supposed to mean something, but when I look at it, I think of him. I just wish I knew who he was. [src]
  — Heather talking about her father.  

During the events of "Have Dragon Will Travel, Parts 1 and 2", it was revealed that the horn was a tribal present from Stoick the Vast to Oswald the Agreeable of the Berserker Tribe for his newborn daughter Heather.

Also revealed in "Have Dragon Will Travel, Parts 1 and 2", for unknown reasons, Heather was separated from her father and insane brother and was taken in by a couple who raised her as their own. Heather always kept this horn with her as a reminder of her birth family, as shown in "Heather Report, Parts 1 and 2".

Also in "Have Dragon Will Travel, Part 2", Heather reveals how the horn was from her father. While she and Astrid are out having some girl time, Toothless begins to snoop through Heather's bag, finding her horn. Hiccup recognizes the seal on it as his father's. He then travels to Berk to get information from Stoick, even questioning if Heather was his own sister. After learning the truth, Hiccup races to tell Heather that Stoick gave the horn to Oswald for his daughter. This means Oswald was Heather's father, making Dagur her brother. In spite of all this, Heather still kept the horn.

Heather used her horn in "Edge of Disaster, Part 2" to call Windshear back after she lent her dragon to Ruffnut to help the Dragon Riders.

Physical Appearance

The horn looks similar to that of a yak's horn — grey, sharp and long. The horn is a little worn out and filthy, possibly because of wear and tear faced over time. There are ropes twined neatly around it and the Hooligan's Chief seal carved onto it. In Dragons: Race to the Edge,  Heather is shown to wear it attached to her leather belt.


  • Astrid wore a completely identical horn on her when she disguised herself as Heather in "Heather Report, Part 2".
  • The horn is similar to Fishlegs' lobster claw necklace in the books.
  • In concept art, the horn has writing on it instead of Stoick's seal.
  • The seal on the horn is nearly identical to Stoick's ceremonial belt buckle in "Twinsanity", which was the first episode Dagur appeared in.
  • Throughout Dragons: Race to the Edge, Heather's horn is occasionally out of place.
