The Sandman follows the Dream of the Endless on his journey to rebuild his realm after being imprisoned for more than a century, and the expedition also sees him encounter some of the ghosts from his past.
A woman who shows up in the fourth episode of the show
One such person is Nada (Deborah Oyled), a woman who appears briefly in the fourth episode of the show titled “A Hope in Hell”, which is also the chapter in which the character Neil Gaiman made his first appearance in the original comics. makes. Here’s everything you need to know about the character, why she calls Dream Kaikul, and why she sees her in a different way than how she looks to others.
Dream 10,000 years before the events of the episode
Nada was one of Dream’s true loves, she was the queen of a tribe that called herself the First People and she met Dream 10,000 years before the events of the episode in which she first appears. She fell in love with Dream after seeing her from the window of her tower, and she also fell in love with him. Nada refers to Dream as Kaykul, one of many names Dream like Morpheus The first part of her and Dream’s love story is told in the prologue to the second volume of The Sandman, “The Doll’s House”, based on the second half of Netflix’s show.
The preface, titled “Tales in the Sand”
An elder of the First People tribe is seen telling the story of Nada to a young man, how they discovered Kaykul, the lord of the Dream, after seeing each other for the first time and eventually meeting. her into utopia. There Nada confesses her love to Dream, but when she learns that she is a member of The Endless, a group of immortal beings that cannot die, she returns to the mortal realm in fear because she Knew they couldn’t be together.
Dream her once again with her Dreamreal
Sapna meets her on Earth and offers to make her the queen of dreams. He convinces her to stay with him but their tribe is destroyed by their love meteor and Nada sees that they cannot be together.

Instead of adapting this prologue, the Netflix show simply recreates the moment in “A Hope in Hell,” where Dream sees Nada again after centuries and she asks him if he can free her. In this scene Tom Sturridge is replaced by Ernest Kingsley Jr., and that’s because Dream depends on who is watching him, and he doesn’t always appear in the form he often appears in comics and The series is shown in both. , In fact, in one chapter of the comic, Dream appears as a cat similar to another feline.
The fourth book of the comics “The Season of Mists
Later in the episode, Sturridge’s dream tells Matthew the Raven (Patton Oswalt) who Nada is and they were in love, and when Matthew asks him why the hell he is, Dream simply tells him “He challenged me. The story of Dream and Nada continues in the comics’ fourth book, “The Season of Mists”, and as showrunner Alan Heinberg told Newsweek that their story was so important to this later arc, he felt that “The Dolls House” would better serve the second season.
