Moloch (D.J. Mifflin), "the God Demon of Child Sacrifice," is the main antagonist of the first season of Sleepy Hollow, with the goal to bring forward the Apocalypse. As such, he was responsible for the raising of the Headless Horseman.

Moloch's appearance is blurred out, but he appears as a humanoid, with claws, horns, and demonic voice, speaking Greek. It has demonstrated invisibility, knowledge in magic spells, telekinesis, teleportation, and massive strength. He resides in the parallel dimenson known as "Purgatory."

BiographyEdit

Pre-seriesEdit

Moloch is an ancient demon, spoken of in several theological and religious books, including 17th-century poem Paradise Lost by John Milton.

In 1774, he approached the dying Abraham Van Brunt and made a deal with him: Abraham would sell his soul to Moloch and become Death, one of the Four Horsemen. In exchange, Abraham would receive Katrina once the Apocalypse began.

In the 1800's, he managed to imprison the powerful witch Katrina Crane of the Sisterhood of the Radiant Heart in Purgatory, as per his agreement with Van Brunt.

The first recorded Sleepy Hollow sighting of Moloch was by a farmer who spotted him in 1882, when he appeared near four white trees in Pocantico Grove. He would return centuries later, when he was seen by Abbie and Jenny Mills

Season OneEdit

Following Moloch's awakening of the Headless Horseman, he has also killed and resurrected police officer Andy Brooks, and instructing him to bring back Serilda of Abaddon to life. He also used Ro'kenhronteys to get to Abbie, and The Shadow Warriors to regain The Lesser Key of Solomon, in order to open the gates to Hell. He had also sent his minions to retrieve Death from his imprisonment yet had his minions stop Death from killing Ichabod.
