Dreams, sweet dreams, be in the sand you hold. They banish all the darkling fears and fill the night with gold
—Mermaids, to Sandman
A mermaid is a legendary aquatic creature with the upper body of a human and the tail of a fish. They live in the Island of the Sleepy Sands, where the Sandman lives.
The mermaids are lovely creatures with long hair and a dress made of their own scale that connects with the fish tail.
The mermaids are curious but caring and motherly creatures.
The mermaids came from the sea as they were enthralled by Sandy's Dreamsand. And from that moment on they were determined to help their little friend.
