Dragon Training 101

 

{_______________________________}

 

 

THE FLIGHTMARE

 

 

Class: Mystery (formerly Strike/Fear)

 

Length: 30 feet (average) 

 

Weight: 600 lbs (average)

 

Wingspan: 50 feet

 

Diet: Glowing Algae, fish on occasion

 

_________________________________________________________________________________

 

Beware days when Arvndale's Fire appears in the glistening

starry sky, and avoid rivers that glow along with this ghostly

dragon. The Flightmare is as terrifying as it is mysterious, a

dragon straight out of legend and folktale that is able to freeze

all oponents in its path with fear... or can it? If you are crazy

enough to go and train one of these rare beauties, you're in

luck for some talents that will make them as tame as a yak. My

name is Jyharri and I will explain the basis of

dragon training, the Flightmare.

 

The incarnate mix between the Fury, the Skrill, and with the

added glow of a Fireworm Queen, the Flightmare is one dragon

that is unavoidable if the right precautions are missed. Their

paralyzing sprays of mist are able to freeze about any dragon

and viking in their range, and allows for the Flightmare itself to

land a critical and sometimes killing blow. I've learned my

lesson on getting too close to a Flightmare's food source, and

will hopefully provide enough information where you won't end

up like I did with my first, Xeno.

 

Disclaimer: A majority, but not all information on the Flightmare can

be summed up from my experience with Flightmares (raising them,

training, etc), so take these words with a grain of salt.

 

Step 1: Location

 

Although one of the rarest spector-like dragons in the

Archipelago, there are a few locations on where they can be

found. In Berk's Archipelago, the best place to find them is

where their food source lies. However, a dense and deep cave is

where these creatures reside in when they are in hibernation.

These caves can be found in Unnamed Islands.

 

Step 2: Admire and Capture

 

Unlike with many of the dragons on this level of training, letting

a Flightmare get to know you traditionally will most likely get

yourself frozen and killed. What I recommend is luring the

dragon into a trap away from its food source that will be secure

enough to allow you to wait out its mist sprays. After the

display of glow fades lightly, go back to the Flightmare's food

source and collect a sufficient amount of algae, then open the

cage door. Wait until the Flightmare is at least 10 steps in front

of you before tossing the algae to it. Let the dragon feed, then

back away slowly. Once the dragon's mist is fueled again, it will

most likely attack, which is why it is best to control its desire to

feed from the algae at an almost obsessive rate first before

going for physical contact.

 

Step 3: Lessons on Hardship

 

After about a pair of weeks repeating step one, the dragon

should grow so used to your presence, and the food it brings

after, it should walk straight into the cage to await another

feeding. When this happens, prompt the dragon slowly with

your hands to come out whilst looking down. Let the Flightmare

sniff and wonder before pressing your hand against its nose or

horn. The bond is now set, but don't go flying yet. Make sure

you lead your new dragon back towards its food source so I

remembers where it can restore its energy, then cautiously

collect a portion and fill as many saddlebags as you can - the

Flightmare should now treat you as its algae food source. Once

you've flown to your desired location (on top of one of your

calm, previous dragons of course), feed your Flightmare again

and wait for its signal to hop on. Once you climb atop its back,

prepare for a dangerous and wild flight!!!

 

Step 4: Training XXL

 

Once your dragon has had its fun toying with you in the air, it

will let you take control. Subtling telling your dragon where to

go or motioning it with your boots are both effective. It is best

to train your dragon on combat atop its back, and against large

opponents - it flatters their pride. For ground training, just like

with a Nadder, command your Flightmare to lock onto moving

target such as test dummies and close quarter them first,

misting afterwards. This tactic is to aid in surpressing your

Flightmare's desire to freeze on impact in order to keep you,

and all around you, safe.

 

Step 5: Racing like the Wind

 

If you would like to race with your Flightmare, always

remember three things: precision, precision, and precision! You

are in command and must motion your drgaon where to go at

least a second ahead of the mark in order to become a good

racing team. However, physical commands work much better

than those that are voiced out. Also, beware times if a rider

decides to try and blast your dragon out the air - the

Flightmare will mystify itself in order to regenerate from the

wounds, which will also cause it to freeze you. Other than that,

standard racing tactics can be applied to this speedy and

elusive wonder.

 

Extras: Titan Flightmares

 

When any dragon becomes a titan, it does becomes twice as

strong and aggressive than its broad wing stage, which is much

more prevalent in a Flightmare than with most dragons. It is

best to let your dragon be for at least 3 weeks after the

transformation begins, allowing it to get used to its now more

potent mist. Beware: This form of the mist has a 5% chance to

freeze all of your organs if inhaled, so take extreme caution

when you're going to find your dragon again.

A Little About Myself -- My Lineage

 

 Many centuries ago, the Arowdur family started hunting a

group of dragons known as the Shinglewing, as a species, for their skins

and meat... however, news has spread from my family's clan in the deep,

deep south of Berk's Archipelago that Hiccup and the dragon riders had defeated

Drago's army in order to save dragons. My family, and my former civilization, had all

disapproved of the truce between dragosn and humans, and continued to 

hunt down the Shinglewing dragons to near extinction. But thanks to a few

bruises, planning, and some knowhow about dragons, I had actually learned

how to domesticate a Shinglespike, the male of the species. With its help,

and a few Shinglescales for backup, I escaped the grasp of my murderous

family, and escaped to Berk's Archipelago.

 

When I first reached it, I had noticed that the Shinglespike didn't want to

travel further into Berk's Archipelago, but it did let me jump off of his back

when we reached a nearby island. I had waved goodbye to the Shinglespike

and Shinglescales as they traveled out of my sight, with me hoping they

would be alright. Before the Shinglespike departed, I documented as much as I could of his stats...

 

ShinglewingSpecies

 

After makeshift building a hut on Scuttleclaw Island, out of view from any

other people, I have tried to stay out of the way of all the new and

mysterious dragons on this island, eventually co-existing with them after a year. However, by some strange coincidence, a message from my parents made its way to me via Terror Mail.

 

I read it and I knew I had to visit Berk. As soon as I arrived to the Berk

Docks, I was surprised by a chain of events going to pass at that time. I took

a wild ride on the fabled Night Fury, Toothless and eventually rescued my

first ever trained dragon, a Sand Wraith which I named Sandstreak.

 

Well, that's my dragon riding start (officially at least). My only passion now

is to grow as a strong, effective dragon rider in order to someday return to

my homeland, train the Shinglewings in front of my civilization and demand

my family not to hunt these amazing creatures... if not, then I may have to

end their twisted tradition myself.

Causemoe sneezed all over my subject and I'm not touching it

Be careful when you inevitably have to incorperate other people into the relationship. I've heard a few horror storys of flightmares latching that possessive over their foodsource trait onto their trainers and attacking people when they spot them near their trainer. This is why I don't work with very many flightmares.

Definitely A Warning

That is a truth to the training of a Flightmare, and is why I have only had time to train three (including a youngling tiny tooth). Nasty as they are, there are still some things that are inevitable.

*Grabs popcorns*

I have 3 flightmares, and yes, i have to agree, they are as nasty as an angry snake. It's VERY hard to avoid fights with other dragons, fights with random trainers, etc..They are absolutely ferocious. I don't know if i should send them back to wild. They have been a problem for my passive dragons, like gronkles and groncicles, so that's why i was thinking about sending all of my 3 vicious beasts back to the wild.

My Suggestion

If those three Flightmares are truly too wild for your taste, there's the option to send them back to the wild. If the methods aren't too useful after trying them out, that's probably for the best if you don't want to give up on them.

That cage tactic might be useful some day. . .to get a particularly nasty Flightmare out of the way for when I have to retrieve food for one of my Titan Flightnares, Chilly. He doesn't like the cold so in the winter, I have to bring him some algae so he can retain his beautiful glow. I generally give my Flightmares a diverse diet (eggs, a variety of fish, and algae, the former three being mushed up so they can enjoy it) and they retrieve the glowing stuff on their own and Chilly would be like that if he didn't hate the cold more than Toothless hates his rival. With this trick, hopefully the chances of getting attacked by a Flightmare will drop dramatically!

"Subject? It's r- Flash, STOP eating my subject!"- Raineir

I would have to say that Silvermist was one of the hardest dragons for Raineir (my viking OC) to train.  I think Raineir's calm and caring personality is what helped the most.  It took a bit more time than most of Raineir's other trained dragons, even Earthgrinder the Titan Whispering Death, but it worked out overall.  Surprisingly, she gets along very well with Flash, Raineir's Skrill, probably due to their rough pasts and the fact that it takes both of them a little longer to trust new humans and dragons.  Overall, Silvermist, like Raineir's other dragons, is very loyal to her trainer, and even doesn't mind the other Dragon Riders, though Snotlout is an on and off case, lol.

Trophies: 523. So far, all my trophies are from racing, which, for me, took many races. I've gotten a lot better, but I'm in no way the best.

 

. Main Dragon for Racing: My Sand Wraith, Claw. Sand Wraiths may not have Toothless' speed or acceleration rate, or the speed of dragons like the Skrill and Razorwhip, but they have a very good top speed at 8.8, and they have a better acceleration and turn rate. This, in my opinon, makes them one of the best racing dragons.  For my second main viking, Seerboldraven, it's Silvermist the Flightmare. Not quite as good acceleration and turn rate as the Sand Wraith, but the speed is the same (8.8), and the turn rate is still good for a race.

 

Main Dragon for Battle: My Whispering Death, Thorntail. I also use my Changewing, Ghost. For Seerboldraven, it's Whisper the Whispering Death.

 

My code: EZEPJ4, just in case you want to be friends but can't find me in-game.

 

Random Fact I just came up with: If dragons were birds, let's face it: the Night Fury would either be a Peregrine Falcon because both are really fast, or a Barn Owl because both are stealthy and have a hair-raising screech.

 

I am fully against Hacking in SoD!

 

This is my main viking, nakataGreenThumbs, with her main dragon, a female Titan wing Deadly Nadder named Skyhopper, who's clearly taking a snooze here.

Here's the story about how my OC viking Raineir met her dragon:

 Berk was not an easy place to live. It was cold, it snowed there most of the year, finding food was not always an easy task, and, yes, it was cold. Oh, and the almost constant dragon raids didn't help matters either. To Berk's vikings, it was either kill or be killed, no other option. Well, except for one viking girl. Much like Berk's heir, Hiccup Horrendous Haddock the Third, Raineir Feralsome was considered an "odd one out." Except, instead of wanting to prove herself by killing a dragon like Hiccup, she didn't like to kill. She thought there had to be another way like Valka, Hiccup's 'dead' mother. One day, Raineir was exploring the forest in Raven Point. She liked to explore the land of Berk, learning about its geographical features. Seemingly out of nowhere, a screech of pain rang out. Alarmed, Raineir ran towards the source of the noise. Coming upon a cove (yes, THAT cove), she looked down and saw a small group of what appeared to be hunters, since they were holding spears and bows and arrows. They were surrounding what looked like a Skrill. The poor dragon was in bad shape. There were wounds on its sides, and had trouble fighting the hunters off in her weakened state. Raineir quickly climbed down and made herself known. "Hey!" She shouted, "step away from the Skrill, and none of you will get hurt!" She drew her sword and moved in front of the dragon. The leader stared at her, then laughed. "You?" He said, "a mere girl willing to fight to defend a beast?" She didn't flinch, only glaring more fiercly at him. Making up her mind, she charged at him, sword ready, not to kill, but to possibly knock him and his goonies out. As she was about to do so, a a small bolt of lightning came from... the sword? The lightning hit one of the hunters, instantly knocking him out. Surprised, Raineir looked at her sword in shock, then glared at the leader again. Not wanting to become the next target, he and the rest of his goonies ran away fast. Once they were gone, she turned towards the Skrill, taking medical supplies out of her satchel. The Skrill looked at her in shock, obviously surprised to witness a human protecting a dragon. Raineir put her hand out. The Skrill seemed hesitant, but then she put her snout gently on the girl's outstretched hand. Raineir set to work on cleaning and bandaging the dragon's wounds. She decided to name her dragon Flash. Flash, once fully healed, let Raineir become her rider. Because Raineir had saved Flash, Flash would never stop protecting her from any threat. They're more than just friends; they're family, and will always be loyal to each other, no matter what. This story happened about a month or so before Hiccup discovered Toothless.

 

Here's how Raineir met Scout:

Raineir was having a pretty good day. Hiccup woke up from his coma a few days ago and was getting used to his prosthetic, and the war between the dragons and Berkians was finally over. She went to go get some fish for Flash's dinner, and aside from nearly tripping over Fungus, Mildew's sheep, and listening to Mildew complain about that, not much happened with that. Upon arriving home, she set the basket of fish in front of Flash (Flash stayed with Raineir and sometimes slept in Raineir's room instead of the stables) who promptly started eating happily. Raineir heard a tiny squeak come from somewhere. Confused, she looked around for the location and source of the noise. It sounded like a Terrible Terror. Flash suddenly stopped eating and growled at her fish basket. "Flash, what-," Raineir peered inside and out flew a pink and yellow Terrible Terror with reddish brown horns and back spines. Flash roared in alarm and growled at the intruder. "Whoa! Calm down, girl. It's just a little Terrible Terror," Raineir tried to calm her down. She held her hand to the little dragon, who looked defensive. "Hey, it's ok, little guy." the terror growled at that. "Oh, I'm sorry! You're a girl, then." Happily, the dragon nudged Raineir's hand. "I think I'll name you... Scout! What do you think, do you like that name?" Scout squeaked happily at that. Soon enough, Flash warmed up to the little newcomer, though was still sometimes annoyed by the little dragon's antics and 'singing.' Raineir soon trained Scout to search/scout out objects with hand signals. Her new friend warmed up to Raineir's parents and fellow dragon riders/friends pretty quickly (Snotlout is an on and off case).

 

How Raineir met Claw:

It was a fairly stormy day on Berk, with rain coming down in plentiful amounts, though no thunder or lightning. Raineir was riding Flash on their evening flight, despite the weather. They landed in the cove, when a loud roar was heard. It sounded like a roar of distress. "Deja Vu," Raineir said. This was what happened right before she found Flash. She climbed back on Flash and they flew into the forest, towards the source of the roar. In a large clearing was a purple... Sand Wraith? It was a Sand Wraith! The poor guy looked lost and confused, so naturally Raineir wanted to help. Cautiously and slowly, she walked up to the dragon. The Sand Wraith turned around and noticed her standing a few feet away from him. Alarmed, he got ready to attack if necessary. He growled loudly at her. Flash got into her attacking position as well, ready to defend her sister if needed. Raineir calmed Flash down. "It's ok, don't worry, girl. I got this." Flash calmed down, though she still looked wary. Surprised at the bond between a dragon and a human, the Sand Wraith seemed to calm down a little as well, though still a bit defensive. Raineir then noticed the scars on the dragon's right side, as well as the fact that the left wing looked broken. She slowly held her hand out to him. "Hey there, boy. You must have had a tough time with humans, huh? I can help you with that wing of yours, if you let me. I won't hurt you. I promise." The Sand Wraith seemed hesitant, but then he slowly pressed his snout into Raineir's palm. "Ok, I'm going to need help getting you back. I'm going to let out a call, so don't be startled when I do, ok?" The dragon nodded. Raineir let out a Night Fury call. Soon, Hiccup arrived on Toothless, and together with Raineir and Flash, they created a large sling which the two dragons carried the Sand Wraith to the village in. The dragon was hostile to the other villagers, but Raineir calmed him down. Gothi was able to fix and bandage his wing. Unfortunately, even when fully healed, Claw, as he was now named, would always fly abnormally, though he was forever grateful to the viking girl who helped him.

 

How Raineir met Fireball the Gronckle:

It was peaceful on Berk once again, now that the Berkians and Outcasts were allies and Dagur was no longer a threat. Raineir was getting ready for her early morning flight with Flash. She was just finishing tying her second braid when she heard a loud commotion outside. Well, Berk was almost peaceful. There was still the occasional viking arguement and of course, untrained dragons wreaking havoc. Raineir groaned. "Not again," she said. Hurrying outside, she looked around for the source. Sure enough, there was a crowd of vikings. Raineir then noticed what was annoying the vikings: a stray and agitated Gronckle. He was obviously untrained and not used to so many humans, as he was growling and whacking his bludgeon-like tail into a few buildings, also shooting lava balls all over the place. Hiccup was already there by the time she approached the scene. Though Hiccup was one of the best at training dragons (both he and Raineir were pretty much tied with that), he looked at her and said, "Rain, can you help me train this Gronckle?" Although Gronckles were normally relatively easy to train, this one was proving to be a difficult case. Raineir agreed, and slowly approached said dragon. The Gronckle noticed her prescence and growled lowly at her, pawing the ground with his feet. "Hey, it's ok, boy. We aren't gonna hurt you. You're safe here." She then carefully held her hand out, revealing a small rock. The Gronckle looked surprised at the peace offering, but then he ate the rock happily, shooting a fireball in the sky afterward. He then nudged Raineir's hand. She smiled. "That's what I'm gonna call you. Fireball."

 

How Raineir met Earthgrinder the Whispering Death:

On the little-known, forested island of Rock Pine (I just came up with that), there were few dragons. One of them was a Titan Whispering Death. He lived in the tunnels he dug deep below the land's surface. His name was Earthgrinder. Earthgrinder's tunnels were dug deep in the forest, and for good reason. Now although very few humans have come to Rock Pine in the past, Earthgrinder was still very cautious. From past experiences, he knew what humans were capable of. He was searching for food one day, when he heard a ruckus going on. It sounded like distressed dragons and... humans! Growling, Earthgrinder readied himself for the intruders. Out of seemingly nowhere, 6 or 7 dragon hunters emerged, looking for more dragons. Having captured the island's other dragons, they turned their attention to Earthgrinder. Wanting a rare, uniquely colored dragon, they charged at him. Earthgrinder fired at them and dodged their weapons, flying away from Rock Pine. He went searching for another island to live, and came upon Dragon's Edge. Not noticing the built structures, Earthgrinder went to the forest and dug tunnels to live in. The next day, he heard... human voices! He shot out the tunnel and prepared to attack those on his island. He saw 7... teenagers, it looked like. And were those dragons protecting them? One of them, girl with dark brown hair and violet eyes (Raineir), with a Skrill next to her, came up to him slowly and cautiously, putting her hand out gently. Earthgrinder wasn't sure what to think. After a few moments, he decided they were good and pressed his snout into her palm. Since meeting these young humans, Earthgrinder soon became used to living with them and their dragons, especially the girl, the first human to show him kindness.

 

 

 

 

About Raineir

 

Full Name: Raineir Feralsome

 

Age: 19-20 (by the time of How to Train Your Dragon 2)

 

Gender: Female

 

Height: Shorter than the average female. 5 ft, 2 in.

 

Hair Color: Dark brown, tied into two semi-long braids in the back. In HTTYD 3, she now has wavy, shoulder length dark brown hair, which now has a purple streak on the right side.

 

Eye Color: Violet

 

Wears: Long sleeve gray dress, dark green leggings, brown fur boots, and two belts, one around the waist and one cross body style in which she keeps her sword. She also wears a necklace with a silver pendant of a Skrill. In HTTYD 3, Raineir now wears a short sleeve gray and purple top, gray leggings, Skrill-inspired skirt, Skrill boots, Skrill arm bracers, and metal shoulder guards. She still wears the waist belt, but instead of just one cross-body belt, she has two that cross over each other. She also still has the Skrill necklace.

 

Dragons: A Skrill named Flash. Flash looks like a regular Skrill, but has noticeable scars on her sides from when she was wounded by dragon hunters, about a month or so before Hiccup met Toothless. Flash, in an act of graditude, accepted Raineir as her rider and life-long partner. Like Hiccup and Toothless, Raineir and Flash proved that friends aren't just limited to the same species. Flash's personality is a little different from the average Skrill, though being one, she can have a bit of an attitude, and like Toothless, can be sarcastic and snarky. Nevertheless, Flash is a very loyal partner to Raineir. She is very affectionate towards her human sister (Raineir) and other humans and dragons she trusts. She and Raineir are very much like siblings. Raineir also later befriends a Terrible Terror she names Scout, who she taught to "scout" out people, dragons, and objects using hand signals. Scout is very friendly and playful, though not afraid to fight if her friends are threatened. Sometime between Mildew's betrayal of Berk and the war between the Berkian, Outcasts, and Berserkers, Raineir found and helped Claw, a Sand Wraith lost and confused in the forests of Berk.

 

Other Dragons: In addition to her three main dragons, Raineir has also trained many others: Earthgrinder a titan Whispering Death, Silvermist a light violet Flightmare, Fireflower a violet Monstrous Nightmare, Lightning a violet and green Shockjaw, Fireball a Gronckle, Bluebird a Deadly Nadder, and many others.

 

Main weapon: Electro, her trusty Gronckle Iron sword. Upon meeting Flash for the first time, Raineir defended her from dragon hunters, and discovered that her sword has the ability to shoot out lightning bolts.

 

Personality: In the first movie (if she were in it), she was much like Hiccup, though not as awkward (sorry, Hiccup). She and Hiccup are still very similar to one another. Raineir is intelligent, sometimes sarcastic, and very witty. Like Astrid, she is fully willing to fiercely defend her friends. She is a very kind and good-hearted person, always ready to help out her friends and family, though not afraid to call them out when they get out of line. She doesn't like to kill unless it's absolutely necessary. Raineir, like Hiccup, likes to consider herself a peacemaker.

 

Unofficial, Official Title: The Lightning Rider

 

Fun fact about Raineir: For an unknown reason, Raineir has an immunity to lightning, and eletrical shocks don't hurt or affect her negatively in any way. She may have been born this way, or maybe she gained it early on in her life, both probably foreshadowing her becoming a Skrill rider.

Haha, Nice

You, my friend, have a truly fantasical Flightmare. If this was the same with me and Xeno, then I wouldn't have to sway him from attacking other Flightmares.
