The Headless Horseman was a magical being conjured into Magic School by a student named Zachary, who used his power of telepathy to replicate the powers of other students and teachers. Presumably he tapped into Herman's power of conjuration to create the horseman.


In 2004, the Horseman appeared at Magic School and started decapitating the staff. However, as Magic School was protected by magic, none of the victims were killed as long as at least part of them remained in the school. The current headmaster, Gideon, sent his assistant Sigmund to ask the Charmed Ones for help.

It was eventually revealed the horseman was conjured by Zachary, as he felt he was being held there against his will and Gideon refused to listen to him. The Horseman was eventually summoned and destroyed by the Charmed Ones.
