Who am I? Just a conscience!
Hey, howdy, hey! The name's Luna, and I wished upon a star from I'm a former member. My other imaginary friends include None. The Headless Horseman and I are so very eager to join the Worlds of Disney circle of life!
Character name: The Headless Horseman, no one knows his real name
Age: Over 200
Birthplace: Hesse, Germany
Movie: The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad
Custom title: The Headless Man
Why: The Horseman has always been one of favourite Disney villains. Even though he doesn't speak and not much is known about him, I think I could really have some fun with him RP wise.
Character appearance (try to get at least 2 or 3 sentences for each section)
Hair description: This is pretty much a no-brainer. As the Horseman lacks a head, unless you count his jack-o-lantern, he has no hair.
Facial description/mood/expressions: For a bloke without a face, the Horseman is surprisingly good at expressing himself. His jack-o-lantern head is enchanted and its expression changes with the Horseman's mood, even blazing with his anger.
Clothing style: The Horseman's attire matches his dark personality. He wears armour with a flowing, high-collared cape. The armour is black in colour while the cape is purple. He also carries his jack-o-lantern head and a sword with him and is hardly ever seen without his ghostly black horse.
Body build: The Horseman's build is rather slender. He is 6"01 in height, but as a ghost, is weightless.
Any unique traits (optional): The Horseman's most striking feature is his rather obvious headless state. He is also completely hollow, filled with nothing but darkness. Despite being mostly silent, he is capable of speaking with an eerie, echoing voice with a heavy German accent. He also rides bareback and needs no support to keep his balance.
Original character analysis (In your own words and please be thorough)
Personality: The Headless Horseman has a personality that matches his frightening appearance. Being the vengeful spirit that he is, he thoroughly enjoys tormenting people. The Horseman also desires a head to replace the jack-o-lantern and the one he lost. Such is his longing, he'll even try to take someone else's head for himself. That, along with his sadistic nature, is what drives him to terrorise mortals. The only creature the Horseman actually cares for is his steed. This fearsome horse is his only companion and brings out an almost tender side to his personality that he keeps well-hidden. The Horseman is not vain or arrogant but he thrives on the fear and terror his presence brings about. However, he occasionally makes an exception when it comes to tourists and cast members. The Horseman also finds jokes pertaining to his headless state highly irritating as he has heard basically all of them.
History: Before the Horseman became a figure of legend, he was a mere mortal. He was born and raised in Hesse Germany. At the time of growing up, Germany was a very warlike country. This was the reason why the Horseman was raised to be a warrior. His father, a rather violent man, had been a warrior too and felt no other career would do for his son.
Of course, the Horseman's mother thought otherwise, but made no protest due to her husband's temper. At first, the young warrior rebelled against his brutal training regime. However, that changed as time went on. The Horseman soon began to enjoy his training. He was trained to use a sword as well ranged weaponry. The Horseman preferred the sword over all else, though. His father also trained him to ride a horse and fight on horseback.
When the Horseman had completed his training, he became a mercenary that fought mostly on horseback. Due to his violent ways, he was paired with the most vicious-tempered horse they could find. However, that plan backfired as the Horseman and his steed were a perfect match. The pair were sent to America during the Revolution to aid the British. This lead to his horse being shot and his head being blown away by a cannonball.
The Horseman was buried in Sleepy Hollow but as his head was missing, he and his horse rose from the grave and began terrorising Sleepy Hollow's villagers. This eventually lead to his encounter with Ichabod Crane. However, he never managed to get the schoolmaster's head as he was whisked away to the happiest place on earth.
Ambitions: To get back to Sleepy Hollow and find himself a head.
Strengths & abilities: Can make himself invisible and intangible, can fly, is able to blend in with the shadows, is a skilled swordsman and horse rider, is invulnerable to things that would harm a mortal
Flaws: Is vulnerable to magic that harms ghosts, his temper tends to get him in trouble, his jack-o-lantern takes some time to regenerate after being thrown
Likes: Causing fear and terror, mortals who fear him, his horse, darkness
Dislikes: Mortals who don't fear him, covered bridges, being a minion
Fears: Never returning to Sleepy Hollow, magic that can harm ghosts
Anything to add?:Nope
The Headless Horseman was utterly bemused as he looked around at his new surroundings. One minute he was chasing that foolish schoolteacher, the next, in a strange place with strange mortals wearing strange clothes. However, the creepy ghost became rather annoyed when he discovered he couldn't leave. The presence of his horse was the only thing that stopped the Horseman from throwing a tantrum like an extremely violent toddler. He gave a resigned sigh as he started to look for information regarding his current location.
Naturally, the spook attracted considerable as he explored his new surroundings. A few mortals waved at him, held up strange objects as he passed by or even ran up to give his horse a pat. Both the Horseman and his steed were confused by this odd behaviour. Normally, the spectre and his equine companion were greatly feared. However, he had more important things to deal with. The Horseman found a mortal that looked different from others he'd seen and asked them about the strange place he had ended up in. The startled man told the ghost that he was in Walt Disney World and gave him a map detailing various attractions and places to stay. He neither knew nor cared what a Walt Disney was but thanked the mortal and walked off.
