The Story of Oweress & Halfeye
For me it all started with a girl
who took a chance - and dared to tame
The story goes that Halfeye was right at the stage of leaving home in search of new territory to reign over. He came from Skullian Isle, a place known for it's famous skull and bones look from the air. Ruled by forests and filled with caverns, it was natural that Halfeye looked for a similar location. Berk looked like a good of a place as any, so he settled in a cove located at the northern end of the island - placed among the roots of old trees and coveting a stream and a field of dandelions. He was challenged from time to time for the spot by a couple of resident dragons, including an older Monstrous Nightmare. The fight between them was long lasting, each dragon matched in firepower and length. The Nightmare seemed to get the upper hand on more than one account, and on the last draw before Halfeye let loose claws dug into his left eye leaving him blind. In the end Halfeye kept his rights to the cove, but had to learn to cope with only seeing half the world from now on. Then came Oweress on a night when she was looking for a Flightmare. Oweress had spent the past month or so looking for dragons that matched the Night Fury, always passing up the Hobblegrunt as an option, even though the dragon matched her in every way. The girl was startled when Halfeye flew into the cove, but was intrigued by him all the same. It wasn't long before Oweress figured out what type of dragon he was, attempting to leave but being scared by a sneeze caused by a stray dandelion seed floating by. Thinking she angered him, she bolted out of there. Halfeye, being curious about the girl himself, caught her and brought her back to the cove. Oweress held her hands in defense, not wanting to be eaten, when his nose pressed to her palm as he made her calm.
The symbolic side of the story is that Oweress was always 'half blind' to the possibilities right in front of her. She always dismissed them, thinking that her mind was better than her heart. This showed in her search: the Hobblegrunt kept popping up in the book as she rushed around trying to obtain a dragon that could be her Night Fury, and yet she always skimmed over it because it wasn't the fastest or the most enduring. Then one time the Hobblegrunt forced her to look at him - and from that point on Oweress led a better life, trusting her gut first and finding paths that she soon found only the two of them knew about.
