Pronunciation : MOR-fee-uhs

(Greek Deity) MORPHEUS

Attributes :
Festival Days :
When in Rome :

Chief of the Greek dream team known as Oneiroi.

Morpheus lies on an ebony bed in a dimly-lit cave, surrounded by poppy - possibly in the form of Opium. This would make him extremely drowsy and dreamy and explain why 'morphine' is derived from his name.

Known as 'he who moulds' Morpheus overseas the creation of your dreams and looks after the human elements in them. He works with his brothers Phobetor and Phantasos - who add the other dreamy bits - and sometimes puts in a night shift himself, appearing as a mortal man in your dreams.

Morpheus is the son of sleep God Hypnos and grandson of Night Goddess Nyx which all makes perfect sense.. for once.
