General info

Dream Eater is a lore most adults tell their children in order for said child to feel safe and lull them to sleep. Unknown to most adults she is very real, they just can not see her. This creature is the reincarnation of mothers who have died during childbirth. So she yearns to nurture and be near children constantly. She can not have children of her own because she is the only one of her kind.

Children can see her massive form in the fields or forests as she struts leisurely about. She tends to lazily pass through villages at night, peaking through the windows of children, checking on every home to make sure each child is at peace. If they are awake and see her, she grins at them. She Coos at them to be silent as she checks around their room to make sure she doesn't see sids lurking about.

When adults abandon their children for whatever reason, Dream eater takes them away. It is said  children raised by her tend to have extreme luck into their adulthood. They are blessed with extraordinary lives and wellness in health. Though with all of this they lose memory of her, she isn't bothered by this. She checks on her adopted young even if they are grown and can not see her. When they are about to pass they see her one last time and regain memory of her fully. She will lay at their side until they pass. Once they pass she is known to cry and frequent their graves. Most older adults who believe in her lore, believe grave stones with the ripest and biggest durian near them is said to be the deceased child of Dream eater. It is said she gives offering to her dead young in remembrance of them.

Lore states when a child not her own passes, be it from sickness or untimely death. The inhuman wails of a women can be heard close by, bellowing in anguish. She feels unknown pain not only from the mother of said child but of the child lost themselves. She tries her best to prevent this pain and children being lost too early in life.
