History[edit | edit source]

Originating from Northern European lore (specifically rural Germany), the Sandman is a faerie is rumored to put people to sleep by sprinkling magical sand onto the eyes of children while they sleep at night. The rheum in one's eyes upon waking is believed to be the result of the Sandman's work the previous evening.

If a victim resisted, he would sit on their eyelids to force them to sleep. For bad children who still wouldn't sleep, he would scoop their eyes out.
