Headless Headmistress Bloodgood is a 2010-introduced and all-around character. She is a headless horseman and the headmistress of Monster High. Two centuries ago, she was a young librarian only just out of college herself when she took the bold step of applying for the job of headmistress of a school that would allow all monsters and humans involved in monster society to attend. Because few believed this would work, Bloodgood had little competition and was given the job. Defying expectations, she made Monster High work. In addition to her duties as headmistress, Bloodgood hosts classes like Trigular Calcometry 101 and is known for giving out tons of homework. Her faithful companion is her horse Nightmare, whom she rides even through the school halls and who sometimes acts as her secretary.
Headless Headmistress Bloodgood is voiced in English by Laura Bailey.
In the music video for the Monster High Fright Song, there are several character analogues who received creative interpretation by the video crew. The one that portrays Headless Headmistress Bloodgood the most is the Headless Boy, but it is unknown who he is played by. It is also possible that the analogue for the Headless Headmistress could be the teacher briefly shown writing on the board towards the end of the music video, although only her arm is seen. The teacher's laugh at the end does sound like the Headless Headmistress in the cartoon series.
Headless Headmistress Bloodgood can be pretty strict at times, but she knows what's best for her students. She enforces the rules and expects the highest of respect. However, she can be shown to have a good sense of humor and has been used for comic relief more than one time.
Based on the Headless Horseman, Bloodgood has short black hair, silver-ish eyes, and pale skin.
Her choice of clothing resembles the pre-Victorian fashions of the late 1820s (not coincidentally, around the time that "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" was published). She wears a purple frock coat, a white frilled shirt and red cravat, black trousers and black riding boots. Her lips are a dark purple-red and she wears purple eyeshadow.
According to Abbey's 'School's Out' diary, Bloodgood is good friends with Abbey's parents and lets her stay at her home during the school week.
Although strictly speaking not a pet, Bloodgood has Nightmare, her shadow horse. Her name "Nightmare" is a pun of the word nightmare and the fact that female horses are called mares.
