Prior to the events of How to Train Your Dragon and as a young man, Otis kept a journal and fought against dragons to protect his tribe and village. He writes in his journal about the first time he fights dragons with an axe and shield. Otis secretly wonders if there will come a time when the Hooligans will no longer have to fight dragons.
|“||With an axe and a shield by the door, I am as ready as I’ll ever be for battle. The icy winter wind nips at my face, reminding me of how cold it is in Berk, especially during the winter. Luckily, I have decided to wear my thickest furs, which will not only keep me warm, but also serve as another layer of armor. Hopefully, this will make me impenetrable to fangs, but Odin help me if one of my enemies is feeling particularly fire-happy this evening.
I can’t dwell on that. Not when my village needs me. I am a Hairy Hooligan, after all, and it is my duty to protect my village and the Isle of Berk. I can never hesitate, especially in battle. Dragons are out here now, as I write this. They are laying waste to my village, and here I am, doing nothing but writing in this journal.
Well, Otis Scrollson shall not stay indoors any longer! I am a Hairy Hooligan, after all, and I pray to the gods to give me the strength to match the rest of my fellow villagers before I charge into my first battle. I just hope that this fight does not linger on. I just hope, one day, that we shall live in a world where Vikings and dragons are no longer at war…
