Who is The Corinthian in The Sandman Season 1?
Despite being one of Lord Morpheus’ creations, he shows little respect for his maker and warns that Morpheus cannot be changed or saved. In fact, he doesn’t bat an eyelid while trying to recruit Rose Walker the Voltex to help him finish off Morpheus once and for all.
Selfish and wanting to sample everything the world has to offer, The Corinthian makes no apologies for who he is or what he wants. And he has a strong sexual appetite, as seen when he has sex many times in the first season of The Sandman.
What does The Corinthian do?
After leaving the realm of dreams, The Corinthian proves it’s no match for him, and he soon returns to the waking world, bent on getting revenge on Morpheus, it seems. After Jonathon escapes from the hospital, The Corinthian soon introduces himself to Jonathon and leads him down a dark and violent path.
During the first season of The Sandman, he continues to feed on his dreamers. And his ego continues to grow as others comment on how “exquisite and elegant” his work (his brutal murders) is. To track down Rose Walker, The Corinthian meets up with her friends (they even sleep with one) before tracking down her missing brother Jed.
After saving Rose and Jed from being slaughtered by a violent killer who happens to be one of The Corinthian’s fans, The Corinthian tries to convince Rose to join him and fight Lord Morpheous. But it proves to be his downfall as Rose wants to find her own path. And that’s why The Corinthian has to fight Morpheus alone. Ultimately, Lord Morpheus is able to undo The Corinthian; and that seems to be the end of his story! But is it? if The Sandman returns for a second season, I predict he’ll (kinda) return soon and continue wreaking havoc.
