Sir Patrick Delaney-Podmore (fl. 1700s) was a Loyalist in the American Revolution and, after his beheading in battle atop his skeletal black horse, a ghost. After his death, he was playful, charismatic and loud, and led the Headless Hunt, a group of headless horsemen who played games such as Headless Juggling and Headless Polo. At times, he could be a tad insensitive, rudely interrupting Sir Nicholas de Mimsy-Porpington's speech at his five-hundredth Deathday Party by blowing his horn loudly and cracking jokes about Sir Nicholas.
Sir Patrick wore a top hat, grey slacks and a red coat with golden buttons, all of which became transparent after his death. In life, he had light skin, white beard, moustache and hair, and dark eyes. Both in and after life, he was rather large.
Behind the scenesEdit
- Sir Patrick was included in several pieces of conceptual artwork for the second film, first as a Viking, then as a Raj, and then finally as the Loyalist. As the books never specify his exact physical appearance, the final edition of the concept art giving Patrick as a Loyalist can still be considered canon.
