The Tooth Fairy is usually seen as a beautiful Fairy type being who visits the homes of children to collect their baby teeth and then leave them a reward in exchange. Sometimes kids see a fun loving animal instead. But what if the Tooth Fairy isn’t the nice, glittering winged angel that concern have come to believe? The Tooth Fairy in Sleepy Hollow is actually a demonic, crazy walking creature. Called an Abyzou, the creature would creep into children’s rooms and steal their souls, leaving them in a coma like state. According to folklore, the Abyzou is a female demon that was blamed for miscarriages and infant mortality and was said to be motivated by envy since she herself was infertile. This nature of attacking of children and killing them has been updated for the series. The Abyzou go after children who have lost a tooth because of another folklore that the wound left by the meeting tooth acts as a portal in which a demon can draw out a soul. Crane has encountered this demon before. Betsy Ross’ niece was attacked by the Abyzou so she called the one person who could help, Paul Revere. Yup, it’s time to rewrite history again. Somewhat. Ichabod Crane describes Paul Revere as being a dentist which is true according to the historical account that Revere did in fact practice dentistry. Contrary to popular belief, Paul Revere had nothing to do with George Washington and his famed dentures. Though Crane says that he did. But Revere was also a part of the secret army fighting against the supernatural, same as Crane and Betsy Ross.
