Dream Demon; Night Terror
The Sandman invades the subconscious of his enemies, where he has ultimate control. Twisting their dreams into nightmares, he feeds off of their fear, growing stronger. He yearns to instil such terror into the hearts of Man, that he is able to manipulate reality itself - plunging the world into a waking nightmare.
Mind games - Nobody’s secrets are safe. Sandman knows your innermost thoughts and desires. Your phobias, insecurities, and complexes are laid bare before him.
Fear - Sandman’s life essence. Without it, he is impotent and vulnerable.
Supernatural - Inhabiting the dimension of demons, and the realm of strange phenomena, Sandman isn’t bound by our rules.
Courage - Bold acts of heroism or self-sacrifice can shatter Sandman’s illusions.
Light - A creature of the night, Sandman is physically repelled by daylight and bright artificial lights.
Sand of varying colours, each with their own effect.
40 Winks - Eye gouge
Deep Sleep - End of Days

"Enter Sandman" by Metallica
Pitch-black darkness engulfs The Slaughterhouse, as Metallica’s Enter Sandman kicks in.
The nightmarish Sandman looms into view on the stage, blinking in and out of sight by the light of camera flashes.
“TAKE MY HAND, WE’RE OFF TO NEVER-NEVERLAND!”
The Dream Demon glides to the ring, to the sound of crunching guitars. He steps over the top rope...
Forget the fairytales; they lied. Once upon a time, everybody feared The Sandman. The ancient dream-demon sprinkled magical sand into the eyes of his victims, sending them into a deep sleep. He invaded their dreams, warping them into nightmares. He grew stronger as fear spread across the lands. In time, he’d have the power to distort reality itself...
They fought him the only way they knew how: they stayed awake. For days at a time. When sleep inevitably embraced them, they roused each other if they tossed or turned. Sandman’s name was not spoken. The adults did not teach their children about him. In turn, they were unable to tell their children. As generations passed, Sandman’s infamy waned. The fear ebbed - as did his power.
He faded into mere legend. The stories were lost in translation, changing to paint him as a benevolent bringer of dreams. Those whom he tormented so long ago were finally freed in their eternal slumber. They had erased him...
Or had they?
The Dream Demon was never truly gone. He’s always been here, lurking. The bump in the night; the shadow in your peripheral vision; the monster under the bed.
We live in troubled times. Fear is rife once more...
The gods may be dead, but demons aren’t.
The Sandman is here to bring you a dream...
