Kira O’Cnaimhin – Mother of Monsters

“Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word happy would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness. It is far better take things as they come along with patience and equanimity.”

- Carl Jung



When you imagine someone from the Sandman series by Neil Gaiman, you probably imagine someone who looks much like Kira — bone thin, with stark-white flesh and a long shock of black hair with equally dark eyes, wearing dark clothes that only make her flesh look more white. Her flesh is covered with scars, chunks of flesh missing, and what flesh she does have that is whole and full tends to have small strange black sigils tattooed into it.

Visible Information

  • Age: 18
  • Demigod Role: Mother of Monsters and Gods – Not only has Kira demonstrated her ability to be a mother in the quite literal sense, she also often assumes the role of a distant mother. She is not as in your face or disciplinarian as Simone—but she does attend many of Jack’s sports games, goes with Neil to publish his items, and serves as a silent, private person for people to sob on the shoulder of. Sure, she isn’t the most comforting, and sometimes she comes across distantly—but her band knows they can always return home to find her as necessary.
