She is voiced by Madalyn Gonzalez.
Zephyr inherited Hiccup's auburn hair color and freckles and Astrid's blue eyes. Her hairstyle and clothing also resembles Astrid's from younger years. Her hair is pulled into two banded pigtails under a studded kransen.
In Homecoming she wears a sleeveless red tunic with green trim at the neck and arm holes, and blue pauldrons with Nadder heads embroidered into them. Her kransen is wide and red, matching her tunic. Around her waist is a wide light red sash holding a small green pouch on her similar to Astrid's. She wears a reddish brown leather skirt with blunt metal studs. Zephyr also wears olive green cloth bracers with fur cuffs on her forearms, sets of leather bands around her biceps.
In the third film, her tunic in a dark bluish grey, and green beaded shoulder pads. She wears a small red bag over her shoulder that has a print of a Night Fury's head on it.
In the third film, she's first seen pretending to adjust the sails and then curiously looking into the water, showing imagination and curiosity. She awkwardly avoids eye contact with Toothless showing her understanding that he's an intelligent animal. Compared to her brother, she prefers to observe rather than interact.
In Homecoming, she appeared to be an instigator and creative with the many traps she designs. She's also cynical and sarcastic like Hiccup was in his younger years. She's also seen to be stubborn in refusing to change her mind about dragons despite her parents' attempt to show her the truth. However, she finally has an appreciation in loving the dragons that are beautiful.
The Hidden World
Shortly after, Zephyr and her family sailed close to the caldera entrance of the Hidden World. Soon Toothless, the Fury Light Fury, and their offspring were spotted playing on some rocks at the edge of the waterfall. The Night Fury saw the boat approaching and protectively went to inspect it. This frightened Zephyr and she sought protection behind her mother. She watched cautiously until she sensed Astrid was also frightened, when she retreated behind her mother's back. After Toothless recognized Hiccup, Astrid relaxed and calmly told her children that Hiccup and Toothless are friends and that the dragon wouldn't hurt them. Zephyr was hesitant to come out of hiding and recoiled when Hiccup invited his children to approach the dragon. Hiccup gently pulled Zephyr by the arm toward the dragon, and taught the children how to tame him. Still scared, Zephyr and Nuffink did as their father instructed by reaching their hands toward Toothless. She awkwardly avoided eye contact with the dragon at first, and eventually squeezed her eyes shut. When Toothless made contact with their hands, Zephyr gave a sigh of relief and grinned in amazement at how docile the dragon actually was.
Zephyr then rode on Stormfly with her mother, being held secure from behind by Astrid. She giggled and grinned at the ride, even lifting her arms at one point to show she was no longer fearful. Nuffink rode on Toothless with his father, but eventually Nuffink was playfully tossed to Astrid while Hiccup invited Zephyr to join him on Toothless. She daringly stood up on Stormfly's back, and allowed Hiccup to grab hold of her and pull her up onto Toothless with him. They were joined by the Fury Light Fury and the Night Light hatchlings, as they flew higher and further into the clouds. he sea and reunite with their dragons at the edge of the Hidden World. After introducing his children to his best friend, Hiccup takes their son flying on Toothless while Astrid and their daughter fly on Stormfly, accompanied by the Light Fury and their offspring.
Zephyr Haddock was born a number of years after all the dragons of Berk flew off to live in the Hidden Worls. One year, as her parents and the other adults in New Berk begin preparing their dragons' favorite fish to remember Toothless and the other dragons around Snoggletog, Zephyr begins building traps around the Haddock Residence. She reveals she found the Vast her grandpa's old journals on dragons in the attic and believes her parents were lying about dragons being friendly. She convinces her younger brother, Nuffink, to be wary of dragons as well.
Not wanting their children to have the same fear towards dragons as their ancestors did, Hiccup and Astrid decide to bring back the Snoggletog Pageant and center it around the time the Vikings and dragons made peace, though Hiccup grew worried about whether it would work as Zephyr continued building more traps and sharpening her stick in the meantime.
During the Pageant, Zephyr appears disinterested for most of it until Gobber accidentally starts burning down the stage. When her father's Mechanical Toothless Puppet goes haywire in the process, she stands with her sharpened stick ready to defend her brother. As the fire is put out, the real Toothless rescues Hiccup from falling off a cliff. Thanks to the smoke covering the stage, Toothless is able to fill in for Hiccup and successfully ends the show by allowing Gobber to peacefully touch him just like he did with Hiccup sixteen years prior. Despite her initial hesitance, Zephyr enjoyed the pageant's ending.
As the Vikings applaud, Zephyr goes backstage to congratulate her father, where she ends up meeting Toothless for the first time. At first she is frightened, causing her to drop her sharpened stick, but when he emerges from the smoke and stares at her curiously she is amazed upon seeing a real dragon. The Night Fury smiles at her upon realizing she's Hiccup's daughter before flying off to reunite with his family. Touched by Toothless' kind demeanor, she ultimately changes her opinion on dragons. She tells her parents that she loves dragons and Toothless, and starts playing around like a dragon with her brother. Though her parents are confused when she asks them why they didn't tell her they'd bring the real Toothless (as she was the only one at the pageant who saw Toothless in person), they're glad the pageant convinced her of the bonds Vikings have with the dragons.
When the Haddock family arrives at their home with Gobber, they find a glowing crystal from the Hidden World and the bowl that contained Toothless' favorite fish was empty. They quickly run outside and see Toothless, the Light Fury, and the Night Lights leave New Berk. Astrid thinks that it's their turn to visit the dragons. iends), believing that dragons are dangerous monsters, and now Hiccup must find a way to convince her by putting up a play.
