Character of the Day. Delirium from Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman series. Delirium is the youngest among the Endless, yet she is older than the rest of existence. She is often depicted as a little girl with heterochromia—one of her eyes is blue and the other is green; whatever Delirium sees through them, no one knows. Her hair changes constantly as well as her clothes. Her shadow never reflects her shape, and is tangible, like velvet. She is said to smell of sweat, late nights, sour wine, and old leather. Her realm is a chaotic, constantly changing mass of colors and strange objects and shapes, and contains a sundial with the inscription “Tempus Frangit” (“time breaks,” a Latin pun on the phrase “Tempus Fugit”, “time flies”.) Delirium travels with a “guardian” of sorts, a German Shepherd dog named Barnabas, on indefinite loan from her brother Destruction. 
Delirium is once called Delight, but whatever caused her transformation is not known even by her brother Destiny.
