Monster: The Horseman

Brief: The Horseman, in whatever world he exists, is a fiendish gift from the bowels of hell. He, typically a he, began life as a warrior. Not for gold or country, but for the ecstasy of killing men. Naturally, such thrills are short lived, the forces of good- or the forces of vengeance anyway, catches up to the Horseman and he is punished by having his head removed and staked. It is in these busy days on the battlefield, when priests are not always available to consecrate the ground or prevent dark forces from playing that the Horseman shall arise. When he arises, he shall not stop taking heads until he claims his own, or he is banished from the world at large.
