The Wanderers are a group of people who live in the Archipelago but are not Vikings, and dress in animal fur. They first appear in How to Ride a Dragon's Storm.
Wanderers tend to wear animal skins over their bodies and sometimes even as hoods. Most Wanderers are rather unkempt and dirty due to their constant wandering. Bearcub's Grandmother had long nails but it’s unknown if this is just her personal look
Wanderers appear in a prelude just before the first chapter where Bearcub's grandmother predicted doom on the ship and cursed the boat. Later, Hiccup, Camicazi, and Fishlegs walk by the slave hatch and hear the Wanderers. On the way to America, Hiccup falls into the hatch, agrees to help the Wanderers escape and receives a Slavemark. When helping the Wanderers escape, Hiccup, Fishlegs, and Camicazi can’t escape themselves and the Wanderers float off seemingly ditching them. In the final chapters however, it isn’t revealed that the Wanderers were only going back to get better boats in which they rescue Hiccup, Fishlegs, and Camicazi in and then send them off then the Flying Machine.
