Last days of the Dragon War

As with most members of the Hairy Hooligans, Phlegma participated in the frequent dragon raids on Berk. During one particular raid, she ran past a young Hiccup Haddock , yelling at him while he was on his way to the Blacksmith Shop. Later, she was present in the Great Hall when Stoick discussed looking for the dragons' nest one more time before the ice sets in. She also greeted Stoick after his unsuccessful attempt to find the dragons' nest, congratulating him for Hiccup's skill in Dragon Training. She joined Stoick and the other Vikings in the attack on the dragons' nest and witnessed Hiccup's victory over the Red Death.

Attack on Berk

Phlegma is present in the crowd watching the dragon races on Berk, cheering the competitors. She later appeared alongside all the other Vikings in the final fight against Drago Bludvist and welcomed back her own dragon, a dark gray Gronckle, after the battle.

Botanist at the School of Dragons

Phlegma was originally planned to be the botanist in the School of Dragons online game, but was replaced with an original character called Flora May. A few months later, Phlegma took her place. She is extensively involved in player quests, particularly those relating to botany, gardening, farming, and the environment.

In the expansion "Secret of the Leviathan", Phlegma is seen riding a Snaptrapper named Snappy. It is stated by Astrid that she became a member of the A-Team.

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

Phlegma is seen along with the other Berkians in the exodus of Berk, as they travel on dragonback to find a new place to live.

Remembering the Dragons at Snoggletog

About ten years after the Vikings and Dragons part ways, Hiccup and Astrid come up with the idea to celebrate the Viking-Dragon bond with a Snoggletog Pageant during the Snoggletog season. Phlegma helped out behind the scenes, standing watch with an unnamed Viking male. This man was knocked out by a falling object right next to her, at which Phlegma appears vaguely startled. The pageant dissolves into chaos as a fire spread on stage. Phlegma, along with much of the audience, panics at the fire and at the malfunctioning Mechanical Toothless Puppet that spewed blue fire over the heads of the crowd.

Physical Appearance

She wears a small golden horned helmet with small ringed horns point up, a green sleeveless shirt made of rough material, two round metal armored plates around her breasts over the shirt. She has thick brown hair tied up, a leather, fur and metal skirt that ends on her knees and thick foot coverings tied to her legs with thin rope much like Astrid's in the second movie.

Personality and Traits

Not much is known about Phlegma's personality due to the lack of appearances and lines she has throughout the franchise, but her reactions from the movie towards Hiccup show that her feelings towards a person are affected by their actions.

According to School of Dragons, Phlegma likes to do woodworking as a hobby, and builds a loom frame for the School.

As noted by Johann in the expansion "Secret of the Leviathan" of the game School of Dragons, Phlegma is "a wonderful — and generous — Viking".
