  Characters of The Sandman - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
She is one of the many representations in The Sandman of the triple nature of womankind (maiden, mother and crone), based on the three distinct "Eve"s in some versions of the Genesis story: the arrogant Lilith, an unnamed virgin, and Eve herself.
The Creator is the Sandman universe's equivalent of a supreme monotheistic God figure, and he shares many characteristics with the standard Abrahamic God, such as almost never taking a physical form (the sole exception shown is in Murder Mysteries), being a creator-deity and having unmatched power.
Their first appearance is in the Sandman #2, where they appear as the three witches from the DC horror anthology The Witching Hour.

Oberon is a character in the comic book series The Sandman.
He is seen for the first (and perhaps the last?) time in issue #19 as Auberon of Dom-Daniel.
The character is implied to be the inspiration for Shakespeare's Oberon in the play A Midsummer Night's Dream.

 Who Killed Dream of the Endless?
Before Sandman and the Vertigo line of comics, she was a mainstay in the DC Universe as the Amazonian daughter of an alternate Earth's Wonder Woman.
His "reincarnation" as "The Sandman" is just an illusion, the work of two renegade nightmares who escaped the Dreaming and needed a dupe to "protect" their pocket dreamscape.
Oberon is King of the Fay, a sly, powerful, and ingenuitve race to begin with.

However, it is Gaiman's main set of characters in the Sandman series, known as the Endless, who most prominently emphasize and embody Gaiman's preoccupations with fantasy, folklore and dark humor.
She discovered that the stranger she had fallen in love with was Kai'chul, the Sandman, the Lord of Dreams.
Sandman also proved that an adult comic book readership was not simply a demographic fluke that appeared after the graphic novel boom in the mid to late 1980s.

Dylan Verheul, who maintains that site, is also now the official keeper of the SANDMAN Annotations, which goes page by page and even panel by panel keeping track of the characters and explaining allusions (and Gaiman is a most allusive writer).
Another good SANDMAN site is The Dreaming, while fans of Neil Gaiman in general might want to keep up with The Magian Line, an online version of his fan club newsletter.
My original comment on this "novel" (see my rant on why none of the individual SANDMAN volumes are really novels) was that it was the weakest of the series.

The plot has several strands, and the relationship of Oberon, king of the fairies, and his estranged wife, Titania, is mirrored by that of Duke Theseus and his bride, Hippolyta, who are about to be married - to the extent that the parts of Oberon/Theseus and Titania/Hippolyta are sometimes played by the same actors.
Oberon recruits Puck to help him regain Titania's devotion, but his simultaneous attempt to help the young lovers goes wrong, resulting in confusion.
A Midsummer Night's Dream was adapted for comics by Neil Gaiman for his series The Sandman.

Morpheus, Titania, Oberon, and Puck are of course four characters, but Puck is not on par with the other three, solely converses with his Lord Oberon and vanishes halfway through the play.

Sandman, by contrast, tells the story of Morpheus' present, but also seeks to provide a past for the character that doesn't draw from his previous appearances in comics because he has no discrete origin story.
William Shakespeare appears, rather obviously, as a character in two Sandman stories, "Men of Good Fortune," in which he plays a minor role, along with other literary figures like Chaucer, and Christopher Marlowe, and "A Midsummer's Night Dream,"[5] in which his company performs that play for an audience including the real Oberon, Titania, and Puck.
Neither Sandman nor Animal Man use the same intertextual strategies all the time, and two of the most interesting examples of intertextuality come from issues where the creators backed away from their regular strategies.

As for oberons stats, they should be slightly below average (for a deity) in Int and Wis as he is not particularly intelligent or wise compared to the other fey deities.
IMHO I think she and oberon would be better off as medium-sized creatures (same size as dryads and satyrs.) but that might have more to do with 'A Midsummer Nights Dream'.
Oberon would have an attack bonus of +20 (20-HD outsider) +10 (divine bonus) +20 (epic character levels), for a total BAB of +50.

 Amazon.com: Books: The Sandman Vol. 3: Dream Country   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-17)
What's remarkable here (considering the publisher and the time that this was originally published) is that the main character of the book--the Sandman, King of Dreams--serves only as a minor character in each of these otherwise unrelated stories.
Okay, the Sandman "Dream Country" is a collection of short stories that are related to the characters in the series, but unrelated in terms of the main storyline that's been going on in "Preludes and Nocturnes" and "The Doll's House." I hate when good storylines like that in "The Doll's House (Vol.
A decent addition to the Sandman books - but they were very much a series of apparently unrelated short stories touching upon the tales of Morpheus without furthering the juicy storyline developed in Volumes 1 & 2 and then later picked up again in Volume 4.

 IGN: Comics in Context #65: Artists Alone
This is the second of the three Sandman stories in which William Shakespeare appears as a character.
In Gaiman's third Sandman story about Shakespeare, "The Tempest," the aging playwright is writing the play of that name, his second work for Morpheus, as his farewell to the stage: it is the last play he writes without collaborators.
In the play Oberon (like Prospero in Morpheus's other play, "The Tempest"), is a kind of director/playwright himself, manipulating events in order to teach his rebellious wife Titania a lesson, and to unite two pairs of mortals in love.

Oberon and Titania are quarreling over the possession of the young boy to the right (played by Hamnet).
I am uncertain if Titania was supposed to be *married* to Oberon, but Oberon *was* supposed to have had affairs outside the union.
In particular, the direct source for Oberon comes from Celtic legends, where the Sidhe (faerie) were tall and noble.

The third book of the Sandman collection is a series of four short comic book stories.
Dream Country takes us away from the main storyline of the Sandman tales a bit and gives us four stories that tangentially touch on Morpheus himself (plus a script for the first of them, which is a great behind-the-scenes look at how one of these things gets made).
If you are planning on reading the Sandman through and through, you should definately catch up on this volume before entering Season of Mists.

Death, who regularly appeared in Sandman comics as his chirpy, streetwise 16-year-old sister, has already been given her own spin-off series starting with The High Cost Of Living.
The influence Gaiman has in Hollywood - "the Egosphere" - and with his publishers reflects the critical acclaim he has garnered in a segment of the industry that is often sneered at by the literary world.
The only example he gives is from Season of Mists, in which the Sandman plays host to ambassadors from other mythical realms who are vying for the keys to hell after the Devil has abdicated.

They soon argue about might versus magic, and Oberon takes him to the mortal realm, where they are beset by Saxons.
The story is briskly paced, told in a prose that perhaps is meant to evoke Dunsany ("And she was wondrous fair"), though without any of his grace; a young reader will enjoy Lancelot as a wild child, identifying with him instantly.
The Sandman, knowing that old things gain value when we want them again, uses Winnifred's old dream to leverage Mallory into stealing an amber egg containing a Pegasus from beside the Grundy's bed.

A relatively recent issue of Sandman had Nuala saying "No wonder Auberon goes horned" in relation to Titania's affairs, a clear reference to horns as indicative of a cuckold.
However, if the Bottom part of the play is from an older story, as just about everything of Will's is, then it would seem Titania did have a reputation for dallying with mortals, if not always of her own free will.
There is also the fact that Auberon first appeared (horns and all) in the Sandman issue where he actually attended a renaissance drama (at least I think it was his first appearance).

That was the foundation for one of the elements that made the series great - that it's not just the story of one hero; the hero can be himself, an active character, but just as often he is simply the essence of something bigger.
Though it tells a very small tale, and one that is without significance in the greater continuity of the Sandman saga, it's gorgeously written and has a great atmosphere about it.
It's rare indeed for a writer to reveal to his readers his work in progress, and this script is fascinating to both fans of Gaiman and aspiring writers of graphic literature, as it gives us a precious glimpse into Neil's precise and masterful scriptwriting process.
