Reverend Alfred Knapp was the reverend in The Dutch Church and a resident in Sleepy Hollow.

History Edit

Early life Edit

Alfred, revealed to be a warlock, worked alongside Katrina in a coven. When the Horseman of Death butchered several members of the colonial army, Benjamin Franklin found Katrina Crane, Alfred Knapp and other members of Sisterhood of the Radiant Heart. They planned to created the Kindred, but failed to awaken it for the lack of a part of Death. [1] When Ichabod was killed on the battlefield by the Headless Horseman, he, along with other witches, cast a resurrection spell on Ichabod.[2] He then assisted Abigail Adams in subduing murderous painter James Colby and imprisoned him in his last painting in 1782.[3]

It was also revealed that not only is he much older than two hundred years old, but he was present at the resurrection of George Washington and guarding the secret of where Washington and his map were buried.[4]

Season One Edit

Death Edit

Sitting in a diner, Alfred listened in on conversation that Abbie and Corbin were having. Later, on, he reappeared, surprised after noticing Ichabod's presence. Later that night, Alfred is confronted by the Headless Horseman, whom was coming for his head. After a failed attempt to defend himself, Alfred is decapitated after denying the Horseman his head one final time stating that he was ready to die. [2]

Abilities Edit

Alfred has proved himself to be a powerful warlock. He, along with other witches, banded together to use magic in order to preserve Ichabod's body in order for him to be resurrected. Also, he's used incantations that can manipulate his surroundings to his will; using chains to restrain the Headless Horseman.[2]

  • Preservation magic- As shown at the Pilot, he, along with Katrina, preserved Ichabod's body.
  • Telekinesis- He was able to manipulate the chains near the church in a futile attempt at restraining the Horseman of Death
  • Resurrection- Knapp was temporarily able to bring back George Washington.
