The Dullahan is a headless rider who sits atop a black stallion, carrying their waxy head before them like a lantern. Droopy skin hangs from its skull, and its manic grin stretches from ear to ear. Its watchful dark eyes possess supernatural sight, darting from side to side, searching for dying souls in the night.
As the Dullahan passes weary travelers, the fortunate are only doused with a bucket of blood. It may chase others and strike them blind with a whip made of human spinal cord.
When the Dullahan identifies its target, it will hold its head high and cry out the victim’s name, beckoning their soul. Placing gold in the path of a Dullahan is the only way to stop it.
