|“||Anyway, when I found her, she'd been hurt in a fight with a Typhoomerang. Windshear held her own. Didn't you, girl? But she needed to be nursed back to health. Then when she was better, I used the training you guys taught me on Berk. We've become the perfect team. We're unstoppable. I mean, look at her! No one can take us down. And if they try, they'll be sorry for it. [src]||”|
|— Heather, about Windshear|
Heather and Windshear have a strong bond, and trust each other wholeheartedly. They protect each other, and are also very experienced in fighting against the Dragon Hunters. Windshear trusts no one more than Heather, her rider.
In "Have Dragon Will Travel, Part 1", Heather explains that she had found Windshear after she had been attacked by a Typhoomerang. Using the dragon training skills she had learned from the Dragon Riders in Riders of Berk, she was able to treat the injured dragon and train her. The two soon became an unstoppable team. Before meeting the Dragon Riders, the two would raid bandit ships, to redistribute the stolen goods back to their rightful owners.
Heather cares a lot about Windshear. Even though Heather displayed her single focus to kill Dagur in "Have Dragon Will Travel, Part 1", she still was not willing to put Windshear at risk for it. She also took Windshear into account when choosing her campsite, choosing an island that was filled with sea slugs, Windshear's favorite.
Even when Windshear was caged and thrown into the ocean, Heather risked her life to save her dragon. When that didn't work, she was willing to die alongside her dragon. This shows just how strong the bond is between them, and together, they are unstoppable.
Windshear is very protective of Heather, even knocking Snotlout over when he tried to flirt with her. Windshear also appears to understand how Heather feels, showing concern when she is upset, like every dragon to their riders. She even saves Heather when she was about to hit rocks at the bottom of a cliff.
- Heather, despite not receiving as many instructions on dragon training as the Dragon Riders, was able to train her dragon better and form a stronger bond with her dragon than some of the Dragon Riders, such as Snotlout and Hookfang.
