Quote1 By the power of these sands-- by these magic words I say-- when I clasp thee in my hands-- take me from this world away! Quote2
-- The Sandman src

As a child, Larry Wilton was sickly, and spent most of his life in bed. His only joy came from his mother reading him science fiction and fantasy books to him, and later when he was asleep would have dreams, always about a fairy named Melana and an evil entity trying to kill him. As the years passed, the dreams subsided, and his health improved greatly. Wilton began bodybuilding, and soon enrolled in MIT and earned a degree in astrophysics. Soon after, he became a fighter pilot, with such a good record that he was chosen to become an astronaut. However, on a mission to investigate a strange green mist in orbit over the planet, Wilton left the shuttle to fix an external fuel leak, only to be disconnected from the ship as it was hijacked and then blown up. The force threw him into the mist with a low oxygen supply; only for him to hit the ground and wake up in the same world he dreamed about as a kid. While fleeing form the Thief of Souls, he ran into Melana yet again, and transformed into the Sandman.
