Imagine the most terrible monster that has ever haunted your nightmares. The kind that makes you wake up screaming, panting and sweating profusely as you struggle to regain your composure. Scary, right? Now imagine what would happen if this monster sneaked into the waking world and started wreaking havoc on humanity. This is the Corinthian in a nutshell.

First appearing in The Sandman #10, Corinthian was created by Dream as a way for people to face their fears in the relative safety of their nightmares. He is a reflection of humanity’s darkest traits, but Dream never envisioned him to be anything more than a sleep demon. Unfortunately, things didn’t go according to plan, as Corinthian developed an appetite for destruction and decided to go rogue, leaving the Dreaming realm to kill people on Earth.

On the outside, Corinthian appears human, but under his sunglasses, rows of teeth are visible where his eyes should be. Of course, this creature does not need ordinary eyes, unless it feeds on the eyeballs of its victims for selfish purposes.
