Headless Horseman / Dullahan




The Headless Horsemen encompass multiple species; male and female. They are also likened to the Grim Reaper as they signify an oncoming death. They are extraordinarily vengeful, they have a profound power when it comes to spirituality & communication with the dead, and they are not easily persuaded. The Dullahan is the most famous of the Headless Horsemen; riding a black horse, carrying a moldy head with rapidly moving eyes, and a Cheshire grin from ear-to-ear. The Dullahan is considered in the species of Fae. While other manifestations are said to be of decapitated riders of any species; human, Fae, Elf, Vampire, etc. In all they are the harbingers of a darker side of spirituality and can bring incredible insight into the world of spirits. They are usually quite territorial, they like to take over a specific area, they are protective & vengeful, and quite an interesting companion.

They are great for those who want to open new channels of communication and interaction with spirits. They are also tasked well in matters of justice and vengeance. They are not afraid to be intimidating, forceful, or downright terrifying when needed.

Secret to Keeping

These Dark Arts secrets were previously not known outside of family and Creepy Hollows collectors. They are secrets discovered by Ash and he has generously agreed to share them with all collectors because having the right secret and being able to properly handle DA spirits is more important.

Caring for your Headless Horseman is the same as caring for any other spirit except being a creature of duality. They are not fond of being covered in dirt. Place the vessel in a dish and cover them completely with dirt or sand and leave them for at least 6 hours. If they are bound directly to you the threat of transmuting them to a vessel for the purpose of placing covering them in dirt or sand is usually sufficient alone. Only use this technique if you feel they are becoming too strong for your liking- some collectors like their spirits to be "on the go" all the time so it is your judgment call.
