Even if he no longer needs to hunt dragons, he's quite proud of his strength and past achievements, and he will always present himself as the "greatest dragon wrangler".

And when he's not on some dangerous mission, he's set to llok for a baby dragon in A Small Problem, something that causes him frustration.

He will accompany the player to the meet-up with Grimmel and Stormheart in Parley and will join the battle in Throwing the First Punch.

Other quests Edit

A Slick Solution: Eret shows he is serious about saving dragons, and that his knowledge of sailor's tricks can be crucial.

Rumbling Docks and Sundial Clocks: Valka leave Eret babysitting 3 Rumblehorn hatchling, but Eret is still inexperienced, so he needs help.

Relationships Edit

Mala Edit

Eret shows respect to queen Mala, even if she seems no too much interested in Eret's name and titles. [src]

Ruffnut Edit

In the movie, Ruffnut shows a strong attraction (unrequited) to Eret. In the game it is briefly mentioned in That Time of Year, Part II. In general Eret is not shown to be happy to be around the Thornston twins [src], probably for their warlords to blow up everything, but it seems that Eret appreciates Ruffnut's Maze in this case.

Stormfly Edit

In the movie, Stormfly holds Eret dear (in her own way), and in the game Eret remembers this fact, saying that Stormfly still pins him down like "his favorite toy" every now and again.

Eret's old crew Edit

Eret mentions his "old crew" in the quest A Slick Solution. They warn Eret of some injured Night Terrors and use Terror Mail. So, while Eret abandoned the dragon trapping life, it seems like he's still on good term with his old crew, and they even help him in rescuing dragons.

They are mentioned again in Rumbling Docks and Sundial Clocks, when Eret says they would not believe their eyes if they'd see him taking care of dragon hatchlings.

Skullcrusher Edit

Eret mentions Skullcrusher in the quest The Best of Us, but it's only in the expansion pack The Hidden World that we actually see Eret riding his dragon.

Eret's Boat Edit

Despite bonding with Skullcrusher at the end of HTTYD 2, in the game Eret's main way of transport is his boat, at least until update 3.0.
