Allow me to (re)introduce one of my favorite OCs, the Dream Guide. His backstory is pretty simple: it's his job to ferry people from place to place inside their dreams.
He wears a scarf made of words, which constantly transforms as the script of your dream unfolds.
The design on his shirt is both a simplified ribcage and a scorpion, and he wears skull makeup to ward off evil forces. But don't let his sinister appearance fool you - he's pretty cuddly
His name changes from dream to dream (he appears as a slightly different person to everyone he visits), but you can call him either Lucidus, RÍvien (from the French "rÍve", or dream, and the verb "revenir", to return) or Kevin LOL
P.S. in case any of you were wondering, my own whacked-out dreams provided the inspiration for this character. Since I met him while I was asleep, I guess that makes him my animus? I'm not particularly cued-in when it comes to dream psych terminology...
