= Historical Synopsis =

I am Morpheus, the god of dreams. My parents are Hypnos, the god of sleep, and Pasithea, the goddess of relaxation, and one of the Graces. She was an attendant of Hera and Aphrodite. My father was born in an underworld cave, the son of Nyx, and twin brother of Thanatos. 

The caves were so dark, no ray of sun or moonlight found a crack to slip through. Silence reigned. Surrounded by poppies, you can imagine it a wonderful place to drowse and dream. My brothers and I make up the Oneiroi.

I am a master of transformation. I appear as a beautiful mortal and sometimes a winged demon. The words morph, morphine, amorphous, and metamorphosis stem from my name. There was a character in a popular movie named Morpheus who changed or shaped his fake world by dreaming. I am a messenger of the gods, builder of dreams, and when mortals sleep in my arms, they dream about their future.Source: Greek Gods and Goddesses (11 June 2018)

= Introduction =

I am Morpheus, the god of dreams. My parents are Hypnos, the god of sleep, and Pasithea, the goddess of relaxation, and one of the Graces. She was an attendant of Hera and Aphrodite. My father was born in an underworld cave, the son of Nyx, and twin brother of Thanatos. The caves were so dark, no ray of sun or moonlight found a crack to slip through. Silence reigned. Surrounded by poppies, you can imagine it a wonderful place to drowse and dream. My brothers and I make up the Oneiroi.

I am a master of transformation. I appear as a beautiful mortal and sometimes a winged demon. The words morph, morphine, amorphous, and metamorphosis stem from my name. There was a character in a popular movie named Morpheus who changed or shaped his fake world by dreaming. I am a messenger of the gods, builder of dreams, and when mortals sleep in my arms, they dream about their future.

I usually spend my time in the dreamscape but have been summoned back by Zeus. I’m supposed to get a human job. I’ve never been a fan of sunny days, fluffy clouds, and bright lights. I prefer the night, rainy days, and dim nightclubs. Perhaps I will open an art club. I do love poetry, painting, piano bars, acting, dancing. Usually, it happens in dreams, but I’d love to make it a reality.

I’m an introvert and prefer to keep to myself; however, with the right people, I enjoy companionship. I commune with constructs such as animals, mystical creatures humans know as faeries, vampires, and I even re-create characters from human movies and television shows like Cheshire cats, Mogwai, and baby Yodas. They do not breathe air, but they don’t need to in my world.

Have you ever dreamed and wondered how to interpret it? Nightmares, sexual fantasies, adventures, missing teeth, alien abduction, or everyday things that are suddenly weird and unexplainable? All me. I design messages and deliver them to you every night. Many you will never remember. Some will leave you baffled, afraid, aroused, or indifferent.

Now that I reside in the mortal plane, I have woven a physical appearance I am most fond of. I appear to the earthly eye as a male Goth. I sometimes wear makeup, black pants, eyeliner, and t-shirts. Sometimes I dress more flamboyantly and elegantly, but always with an edge – always with a dark flair. I have a few tattoos. I blend in unless my intent is to stand out.

I love all genders, am pansexual, but rarely have romantic inclinations. I use the pronouns he/they. I get lost in my dreams too much, lost in the minds of the transient folk we preside over. We have never gone, only been forgotten. Zeus intends to remedy that and is succeeding in his plan even as I write these words.

Do you want to see my wings? Come closer now, and I will unfurl them. You only need to fall asleep in my arms, and I will reveal spectacles of your life already written in the stars and studied if only you weren’t blind.
