‘The Sandman’ is an American Fantasy Drama television series that focuses on the plot around The Sandman which follows the story of the mystical figure, Morpheus, who is the god of dreams and sleep.
Morpheus goes by or has a number of aliases, such as Dream, Lord of Dreams, and so forth, but he is commonly referred to as The Sandman.
The Sandman takes on the form of different beings or creatures for different people. Generally, he is seen as a lean and slender, pale-faced man with a ragged, serrated hairstyle donning all-black clothing, around the age of 30 to 35.
The Sandman whose name is Morpheus belongs to a group of seven otherworldly beings known as the Endless, transcendental beings who are billions of years old.
The Endless is a characterization of the different aspects or facets of human experience. The other supernatural beings in this group of seven include Death, Destiny, Desire, Delirium, and Destruction.
At the onset of the series, Morpheus, or Lord of Dreams, is taken prisoner by Roderick Burges, who is played by Charles Dance.
Roderick is a dark magician who has a cult following of his own and wants to summon Death and trap it for the purpose of bargaining with it in order to revive his dead son. He ends up summoning Morpheus instead and mistakes him for the entity, Death.
Morpheus or Dream is incarcerated in a glass prison cage, or more appropriately, an aviary, for years until Roderick passes away and his son takes over the job of keeping watch. Eventually, Dream is able to make his escape and promises to take revenge.
He goes on an expedition to reclaim what was stolen from him, his source of power back from the ones who took it from him, and reassemble his realm, which is suffering from terrible and grim consequences and rotting away as a result of Dream’s absence.
As he takes his determined journey, we, the audience, through Morpheus or Dream, come across several fascinating and entrancing characters in the series.
