Quoth the Le Dormette:

“Oh, Hello there. I didn’t hear you come in… I was just resting my eyes…”

Kith Excerpt:

There are many hidden pathways in and out of the Dreaming realms. Sleep, by its very reality, is both the easiest and most powerful road to follow. One Tribe has been tied to the lands of slumber since time immemorial – the Dormettes. Once known as the Onereii during the Hellenistic Empire, they were considered the Children of Morpheus. By way of familial ties than, they were also relations to Thanatos and Nyx: death and night. They still maintain some ties, as with their ability to see Wraiths in the waking world, and travel the night roads of dreaming mortals.

Since the golden ages of Greece, however, they have adopted more and more modest names for themselves. They have been winkies, and blinkies, and Dust-Men and Sand-Men and Ol Luk Oje. Now, they are colloquially known as La Dormettes, the little Sleepers. And while they once called the whole of the Known world their own, their numbers have subtly dwindled until just a few score in France.

This is just as well, perhaps, subtlety is what these creatures are known for. Ostentatious shows of magic are meant for the Fae, not the pleasant little Dreamers. The key to the Dormettes success lies in soft-words and lulling promises. A nudge here, a gentle tap there, and soon their quarry is sailing of to dream-country in a little trundle-bed.



“Even a soul submerged in sleep is hard at work and helps make something of the world.”
— Heraclitus
