Morpheus is often cold to those he considers allies and cruel to those who oppose him, which is depicted in both the comics and Netflix adaptation.

Netflix's The Sandman TV show is a close adaptation of the Vertigo comic series featuring Morpheus, one of the seven Endless. Morpheus and his siblings aren't gods but function as the embodiment of abstract concepts. Morpheus personifies Dream and has a symbiotic relationship with mortals. They give his existence purpose, and he rules and maintains the realm of dreams.

Writer Erasmus Fry captured the muse, Calliope, to use for ideas and success. He then handed her off to Richard Madoc, who enjoyed the same kind of success through nefarious deeds.
