His compassion and his arrogance both know no bounds!

Backstory: Whisper Norling and her Woolly Howl Winterwind met Dasher one Snoggletog Eve. Having now trained a Woolly Howl, Whisper was fascinated to see if she could meet the famous Snoggletog Wraith that would fly over Berk almost every year. They intercepted him flying overhead. At first he was weary of the human, but the female Woolly Howl interested him, and he eventually began following them until Whisper and Winterwind led him down to Berk. There he was greated like a celebratory, and once he was convinced these humans were safe, he seemed to enjoy the attention. It soon became clear this Snoggletog Wraith, who Whisper began calling "Dasher" for his speed and "dashing" looks, had a crush on Winterwind. He stayed for Snoggletog and left the evening of it, but every year he comes back earlier and earlier for longer and longer visits, always leaving when Snoggletog ends. He seems to try to get Winterwind to leave with him every year, and no matter how well he's treated while at Berk - everyone seems to enjoy him and enjoy pampering him - he always seems called away by something. Whisper is fascinated to learn why and thinks the answer may lie in further study of the Snoggletog Wraith subspecies.
