Sandy

(Justice League of Kildar)


Power Level:
Game system: DC Heroes Role-Playing Game

Context

This character is an original creation. We often call these “homemades” or “homebrewed” – think home cooking or craft beer.

Many of these characters were created to take part in tabletop role-playing game sessions. Others were invented as a creative writing exercise, often as part of a community event.

This specific character is part of a Dungeons & Dragons-style version of the Justice League. Back in the days, it would have been called an Elseworld  take.

Sandy mostly evokes Jack Kirby’s Sandman, and her name is the same as the sidekick of the previous Sandman.

Powers and Abilities

Sandy is a somniomancer. That is, a wizard specialized into the dreams, nightmares, dreamlands and dreaming.

On his travels to the Astral Plane and the Dream Lands, she has learned to fight the many monsters that live in there, both magical and physically. She is also half made of dream stuff, as his father was one, and so she is fairly impervious to normal damage.

Sandy wields:

  • A staff that can put to sleep most creatures.
  • A bag that allows access to many dimensions and the pulling out of dreams (illusions) of reality.

History

Hermia Battlestar felt strange all of her life. She lived under the care of a wizard, without knowing who her mother was. On the day of her 17th birthday, she got a visit : her father. He came unnamed, and inhuman : he was a character from a romantic dream, who had fell in love with the dreamer. The dream creature had managed to manifest in the real world.

The wizard then thought it was time for Hermia to know her full destiny. She gave her the bag of dreams and the staff that her mother left her. Hermia’s mom had been a powerful warrior during the old days of the Monster War. But she was killed while rescuing children in a burning school.

“I never understood how did she get to own these powerful items. She was a woman-at-arms, not a wizard. So I suppose it was your father who gifted her with them. Now they are yours, and you must use what I have taught you and these powerful artifacts to forge your own destiny.”

Sandy considered her master’s words and thought that she had to follow her mother’s example. She wandered the imperial lands, and especially the frontiers, in search of people in trouble. She would relieve the nightmares of the pioneers and soldiers.

When John the Quick, Amazon and Big Brother joined in a heroic team, she didn’t hesitate. She became a part of the Justice Guild of Kildar.


Description

Hermia wears a tunic, half white, half black, with some golden stars across the black part. She has a delicate beauty and a toned body.

Her skin is tanned and her eyes very expressive, specially when she is serious.


Personality

As a Somniomancer, Hermia knows she must be always in the balance. Nightmares are also dreams and they must be controlled, but not usually destroyed.

With evil people, on the other side, she can be quite ruthless. She’s expecting a spotless morality from powerful people.


Quotes

“Sleep well, my dear.”


DC Universe History

A crossover with Sandman and the Dreaming is the easiest way to make Sandy appear into the DC Universe. She could even take the whole JGK with her.

As a regular inhabitant of the DCU, she could be just another member of the mystic community. Just a bit more active than the norm, like Zatanna.
