Who is Lord Morpheus in The Sandman Season 1?
Lord Morpheus, also known as the Master of Dreams, is also a member of a more prominent family known as the Endless. Aka, immortal beings who rule their own realms. While he doesn’t appear as violent or evil as Jonathon or The Corinthian, Lord Morpheus can act cruelly in some ways. He will allow “innocent” people to die if he can get what he wants from it.
But after being forced to spend over a century locked in a cage, can anyone blame Morpheus for not being kind to others?
What is Lord Morpheus doing?
After being held in a cage for over a century, Morpheus finally escapes and returns home. Unfortunately, he learns that during his “journey” the empire has decayed and disintegrated. But after being away for so long, he has become weak and vulnerable. So in order to restore the dreamer, he must reclaim what was previously his. To start, he must take the dragon Gregory, which was previously a dream, and absorb it.
After that, he asks the exorcist Johanna for help to uncover some sand. and this leads him to her ex-girlfriend whom he must kill in order to recover the sand. When Jonathan uses a ruby and causes multiple deaths, Morpheus puts Jonathon into an endless sleep. Once he learns that a vortex exists, Lucienne warns him that it needs attention. In the end, Morpheus pursues both Rose Walker, the Vortex and The Corinthian and tries to kill them both. Ultimately, he only succeeds in turning The Corinthian to dust.
As for Rose, Morpheus is prevented from killing her by her grandmother, Unity. Instead, Unity, being a descendant of the Voltex, forces Lord Morpheous to kill her instead. As the first season of The Sandman ends, Morpheus appears happy and at peace for the first time. But that all seems to change when the closing moments of The Sandman show that Lucifer wants to turn his world upside down.
