Dullahan is the armor of an ancient hero that someone (animated?) by pouring magic into it. The soul fragments left inside the armor seeking for the lost head and will eventually find it out.During the battle, the armor can be splitting into pieces and using new attack.
In early stage, he mostly attacking with his sword. When the seal is released and he get his lost soul back, he will become the real deal with a few different attack. Player must work together to separate the soul from Dullahan, and you can keep them separated.Dullahan united with his soul
