Hedward is a gentlemonster at its finest. He strives to help people and doesn’t want people to feel hurt or discriminated. He has much respect toward women and will always be there to pull out their chairs, open doors for them, or simply greet them with a smile and a compliment. Hedward isn’t afraid to stand up for a ghoul if she is being picked on or harassed or simply bothered by another and often has to pull Heath Burns away from his targets. He feels that everyone deserves a second chance and will more than likely give people that chance.
He dislikes discrimination of anyone or any kind and refuses to take part in any of that sort. He doesn’t see anything wrong with humans just as long as they aren’t hurting anything. Likewise he sees nothing wrong with half human half monsters and has befriended Jackson Jekyll and other hybrids that attend Monster High. Because of his open-mindedness towards others he befriends others easily and has many friends.Hedward likes to keep a smile on his face for his friends’ sake but deep down feels some remorse. His parents divorced when he was young and he lives with his father who barely gives him any attention and barely sees his mother whom he is very close to. He tries not to let the bad things in life get to him and tries his best to remain positive.
Hedward is very playful and likes to joke around. He enjoys random antics, mostly involving randomly singing show tunes or pop songs with Bo, and likes to make people smile. He can get competitive while playing sports (dodge ball especially) but in the end he accepts that it’s all clean fun.
Hedward has light blue skin and blue eyes. His hair is black and long and usually pulled back in a ponytail with a blue ribbon. There are usually some stray strands of hair that fall in his face. His teeth have been filed down to a point to increase the scariness factor (it was his dad’s idea) and he bears some light blue stitching where his head detaches.
Hedward is the son of the Headless Horseman, who is known through the story The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. The Headless Horseman is said to have been a Hessian, a German soldier that fought for the British side in the American Civil War, that lost his head in battle. Seeing as the Hessians were German, this makes Hedward of German decent as well and a German accent can be heard when he speaks.
There are many adaptations to the Sleepy Hollow legend and the Horseman comes in many forms throughout each version. Hedward is based off of the Headless Horseman’s design in Tim Burton’s film adaptation portrayed by Christopher Walken. This adaptation portrays the Horseman as fair blue skinned, black haired, and having filed down teeth. Being that the Horseman is, well, headless, Hedward has the ability to take off his head painlessly, though it has the tendency to fall off randomly.
- Hedward’s father is the Headless Horseman, his mother is a German maiden. His parents are divorced and he lives with his father who live close to Monster High. Hedward visits his mother on holidays and some weekends. Hedward has always felt closer to his mother than to his father. His father is usually out, either working or simply riding, and has never given Hedward much attention.
