If you missed my last trivia article featuring Anita, you can find it here.
I had a ton of fun writing the last trivia article, and it seems well received, so I decided to do what I said and make this a series. So today, I am focusing on the Lord of Dreaming, Morpheus. I have been reading the Sandman comics since I was 20. I am so grateful to my friend Mike for introducing them to me. One of these days, I am going to buy those big, black and silver hardbound volumes I see in Barnes and Nobles.
If you want to know more about the Endless siblings, I will have links sprinkled throughout the article so you can get to know them. Just in case you are curious, I loved the Netflix adaptation of Sandman. It brought the world to life onscreen in a way I desperately needed in my life. So, without further ado, let’s get into it.

What item must Morpheus get back from someone in Hell?

Ok, there are the questions. Did you write down your answers? Now let me give you the answers. Let me know how you do.
Destiny, Destruction, Desire, Death, Delirium, Despair
Death Dream isn’t the talkative or affectionate type, but it is clear that his older sister, Death, brings some of that out in him.
Dream’s domain is called the Dreaming. He can change anything and everything at any time, and no one can stop him. So long as Morpheus is in the Dreaming, neither he nor his guests can be harmed.
Delirium. Delirium was once called Delight. It is unclear what happened for Delight to become Delirium, but she is very childlike and brings out the protectiveness of Morpheus and Death.
Matthew. Matthew was once a mortal man. Through betrayal, Matthew died within the Dreaming. Morpheus offered Matthew the position of Raven, to which Matthew agreed.
True, just like their parents, Night and Time, Dream and Death, and the rest of them, their names, their very identities, are their functions. They each are the personification of that function.
Matthew is a messenger and watcher for Morpheus. His first task after becoming the raven was to watch Rose Walker, the dreaming vortex.
Kill him. Just like when they were mortal, Cain kills him, but this time, in the Dreaming, Abel revives after every death.
His helm, which is also his sigil. It is made from the spine and skull of some long-dead god from eons ago. His pouch of sand puts people to sleep and manifests Dream’s power. Finally, his Dreamstone, a ruby. It contains a bit of Dream’s essence.
His mother is Night. She is night itself. His father is Time. Get it? Father Time? I love it.
Daniel Hall. He was in his mother’s womb when she was trapped in the Dreaming. Morpheus told Lyta (Daniel’s mother) to take care of her unborn child because he would come it. He, in fact, did.
False. Morpheus has a son, Orpheus, with the muse Calliope.
Obviously, Morpheus and Sandman, but also L’Zoril, Kai’ckul, and Oneiros.
Dream would be hunted by The Three and killed. This is how Daniel Hall became Dream.
Lucifer decided he was done with hell. He emptied it, locked the gates and gave the keys to Dream, and told him to deal with it.
Lucien became Lucienne, and John Constantine became Johanna Constantine. There was a Lady Johanna Constantine in the graphic novels, but she was in the 1700s and 1800s, whereas John is modern day. However, Lady Johanna is John’s ancestor.
Roderick wanted to live forever, so he tried to capture Death but snared Dream instead.
His helm. It is a mark of his office as well as helping his magic. It is also his sigil.
His bag of sand.
How many answers did you get right? Am I making my questions too obvious? I hope you are enjoying the trivia. As I said in my last article, I do love trivia. So, let me know how many you got right in the comments below. Until next time, have fun storming the castle!
