Somnium Daemon (UN-D-6937)
The Somnium Daemon also has a historical basis in Australian folklore. Many Aborigine tribes believe the Somnium Daemon was once a mortal soul who was robbed of his ability to make a final peace by a thief who stole his sleep. Now the restless sleep Daemon travels in the dreams of strangers searching for the thief who stole 'his' sleep", so he too might rest.

Though the Keeper's Guild has very different ideas about the Somnium Daemons origins and motivation, the powers of the Somnium daemon are aptly surmised in these two examples and many more of a similar vein in ancient religions the world over.
