|“||There were 100 witches who were put to death in Sleepy Hollow between 1712 and 1816. Town records suggest members of two different covens integrated into the populace and changed their names to stay hidden. Others spread out across the East Coast. Two covens representing good and evil. I found hundreds of unsolved cases just seem to have ignored. Murders, disappearance, and it's not just here. The case track back through Boston, D.C., Manhattan. I know they're all connected. I just... I don't know how.||„|
|~ Sheriff August Corbin's description on the witchcraft activities in Sleepy Hollow|
The Order of the Blood Moon is a major antagonistic faction in Sleepy Hollow TV series. It is a dark coven, a group of evil witches that serve Moloch. Their high priestess was Serilda of Abaddon 250 years ago, and they are rivals of Katrina Crane's coven Sisterhood of the Radiant Heart. The organization was probably disbanded after Katrina defeated Serilda and let her burned alive by executioners.
From 1712 to 1816, over 100 witches of the Order were executed in Sleepy Hollow. They were then buried in the munition tunnels. During the Revolutionary War, the Order under Serilda had aligned with British. In that time they had attacked a camp near Albany, New York, leaving burnt corpses for the 37th Regiment. However, the Order then lost their high priestess Serilda when the leader of the Sisterhood of the Radiant Heart, Katrina Crane weakened her powers. Serilda was then burned at stake by Magistrate Robert Daniel Furth. Before dying, she vowed that the ashes of Furth's descendants would bring about her return.
In 2013, Moloch had his servant, Andy Brooks, bring Serilda back to life. Serilda then collected the ashes of Furth's descendants, Jeremy Furth and the last Hemmington. She was able to return to her full form, but obliterated by Ichabod Crane and Police Lieutnentant Abbie Mills. However, the explosion scattered her and other witches ashes into a part of the Hudson River affecting people such Vivian Apfel, Hannah Schneider, and people at the Harvest Festival. They were possessed by the Order's witches. Luckily, Crane was able to clean the ashes off the people using a lightning to purge the people in the Hudson.
