Not much is known about Gothi… mostly because she’s never actually been able to tell anyone about her past. All the people of Berk know is that Gothi’s been on the island since before they were born, and she’ll probably still be there long after they’ve left.
Recently, Hiccup and the other Dragon Riders learned that Gothi was part of a doomed Arctic expedition that ended prematurely due to a Snow Wraith attack. Gothi hadn’t left Berk since that fateful experience, even staying behind when the rest of the Vikings faced off against the Red Death on Dragon Island.
Solemn, trustworthy, and spry, Gothi serves many important functions on Berk, but perhaps her greatest role is that of a listener. Everyone on the island comes to Gothi with their problems, and everyone leaves her hut feeling much better, even though she didn’t say a thing! Stoick and Gobber often look to her for counsel and support. Just a look from this old woman could help decide the chief’s next act and shape Berk’s future.
Despite her grudge against the Snow Wraith, Gothi loves all dragons, especially her flock of Terrible Terrors. Now, if she could only get them to stop singing from the rooftops!
