"Abigail's death has set wheels in motion, and you need all the information I can give you. There must always be two Witnesses. When one dies, their soul does not move on. It's eternal."
Ezra Mills to Ichabod Crane[[Ragnarok|[src]]]

Witnesses are characters on Sleepy Hollow. Their job is to protect the world from evil. There must be two Witnesses at a given moment so if one of them dies, the essence of their soul moves on to the next chosen Witness, suggesting that their souls are eternal. [2]




Character NotesEdit

  • There must always be two Witnesses active at any given point. [2]
  • As a soul of a Witness is eternal, once they die, the essence of their soul moves on to the next Witness. [2] For example, upon Abbie Mills's death, the essence of her soul moved on to the next chosen Witness which is someone from their extended bloodline, Molly Thomas. [3]
  • When a Witness reaches the age of 11, they are granted with the responsibility and power of a Witness. [1]
  • Like other humans, Witnesses may be made into Horsemen. The creation of a Horseman from a Witness does not trigger the calling of the next Witness. [4]
  • Only two Witnesses can exist at any one time. When Lara, a future version of Molly, traveled through time, she inherited her mantle as a Witness from her, making Molly the first Witness who had their mantle passed onto another person without dying. [5]
