Being a fallen angel with guilt-burdened wings, its behaloed head cut off and a cruel brace set in its place. Though originally emissaries sent to warn mankind of an unnatural death, they came to enjoy the grim spectacle. The swords they wield are called 'blood brands,' a sign of their bloody treachery against humanity.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

The dullahan is a mythical horseman in Irish mythology, and is described as a headless knight who rides a black horse, or sometimes in a cart pulled by several horses, which moves so quickly the friction of the wheels can set roadside hedges on fire. The dullahan will ride through the night, eventually stopping at the location of a person who is set to die and calling out their name, drawing out their soul and killing them. If seen it will violently retaliate against the watcher, dousing them with blood and using a whip made from a human spine to lash out one of their eyes. The dullahan cannot be barred from travel by locks or gates and cannot be outrun, but it is repelled by golden objects and will turn and flee if one is in its path.
