Abraham Van Brunt's Skull became separated from his body by former friend-turned-enemy Ichabod Crane during the Revolutionary War, during which it was taken by the Sisterhood of the Radiant Heart to prevent the Horseman of Death from regaining it and summoning the other three horsemen. It was hidden in the false grave of Katrina Crane until it was dug up over two-hundred years later in Sleepy Hollow.



  • According to what was said, the skull is somehow devoid of any signs of life, no DNA markers of any sort.[1]
  • Because of the events in the second season, Abraham's skull was in the possession of The Kindred, who needed a piece of the horseman to become a possible rival and harbinger of the Four Horsemen's demise.[2]
  • With the destruction of the Kindred in season three, the skull of Abraham Van Brunt remained in one piece. Ichabod Crane was later able to locate the head and use it to summon the horseman from Pandora's box.
  • As Abraham Van Brunt attempted to use the skull's power to kill Pandora, it was swallowed by the box and the box eventually exploded with Pandora's death. The skull's condition currently remains unknown.
