Hero Backstory:Morpheus is the Lord of Dreams. Whenever there has been dreaming, there has been Morpheus. Whenever there has been the Lord of Dreams, there has been dreaming. Though known by many names throughout history, the oldest texts call it "Oneiros" - the Dreamer. The Lord of Dreams, in it's kingdom, has no shape or body. It is only in dreams that the Dreamer has ever takes a unique form, and even then it is most often as a dead relative or dark creature under the bed.
Morpheus first entered the light of Sol in a rural glen on the last summer Solstice. The one alleged witness of the event, a shepherd boy notorious for his fibs, is recorded as recounting: "'E just appeared, all ghost and pale-loik, roight theare. It wos empty the one time, then 'e was there the next! Wus like magic!" When the locals came to investigate the incident they found the glen empty and punished the shepherd boy for lying.
The boy's tale was later validated when a pale man, dressed in a traveler's cloak and tunic, and carrying a large sheathed sword on his back, appeared at King Jereziah's forward encampment. The mysterious stranger, thought to be a Hellbourne spy or succubus, was disarmed voluntarily at the gate and was taken in for questioning. His cloak was made of a strange material which appeared darkened, as if blanketed by a summer shadow, even when it were exposed to Sol's noontime gaze. His sword, unsheathed, was made of a beautiful white stone-like substance but weighed less than bamboo. When asked how he came by such a weapon the man replied that "the finest smiths in the world have been dreaming of a perfect sword for ten thousand years. They didn't know what it could truly be made of, or of its balance, or weight, but they all knew only that it should feel perfect to the wielder and cut only what its wielder desires."
After questioning him and determining that the stranger was likely not a succubus, the camp guards finally led the man to King Jereziah. The King knew, immediately, that the man was a visitor to the mortal plane. The king asked, "Why have you come here, endless one?" The man replied that he was the Lord of Dreams, and that all the king's subjects had known him their entire lives - and that they walked in his realm every night. He explained that he came to the mortal plane in order to save his own life. He had felt fewer and fewer mortal minds returning to his immortal realm each night, and had discovered that it was the invading Hellbourne tide which was responsible. "My dominion," he said, "is failing. Each day it is drained of possibility, and each night my power grows more dim. Though I am immortal in my own realm, I may only exist so long as the races of dreaming mortals exist to house me in their dreams. So now, in the only way I can, I have come to help. I intend to destroy those who hunt my dreamers, with or without your help."
Jereziah promised to accept the stranger into his army on the sole condition that the stranger tell him his name. The stranger paused, and considered for a moment, before replying, "I don't have one of my own. Every name that has been mine was given to me was given by another. But here, now, I would like to be called Morpheus. I take that as my name."
