Petrefax is a student at the Necropolis Litharage under the tutelage of Master Klaproth. At Worlds' End Petrefax recounts his tale of a particularly trying day in Litharge where he was present during a Air Burial performed by Hermes and two of his students. During the Air Burial each attendant must recount a tale of personal significance to the others, but Petrefax discovers that he does not have a tale to tell.

Once the storm has passed Petrefax decides to travel the realms and worlds instead of returning to Litharge.

Petrefax is the first character Scott has drawn from the Worlds' End storyline and he is presented her from start to finish.

Killalla of The Glow

Tonight we revisit The Heart Of The Star, which is probably my favorite story from Endless Nights.

Scott drew Killalla of The Glow, who is Dream's girlfriend and guest at the parliament, in which the creation of the universe is under discussion.

One of the things I really like about this story is that we finally get an explanation of why Dream does not like Desire and Killalla is at the heart of it all.

Here is Killalla from start to finish.

Eblis O'Shaughnessy

Eblis O'Shaughnessy was one of the final secondary characters to be introduced in the Sandman series.

Eblis was the envoy created by the Endless to enter into the room that contained the Cerements and the Book of Ritual for the funeral rites of their brother Dream. Each of the Endless gave a part of themselves in the creation of Eblis O'Shaughnessy. Delirium chose the building material, Destiny helped mold him, Desire gave him a heart, Despair gave him sight and finally Death breathed life into him. Destiny sets Eblis O'Shaughnessy on his path and tell him "..You can neither dream nor, ultimately, destroy,and that shall be your triumph and that shall be your tragedy." What Destiny means by this has, as of this time, not been revealed.

Demon # 56 (From Start To Finish)

Today we have another Demon.

For some reason this Demon really speaks to me.

When adding this character to the definitive list of Sandman characters I didn't know quite how to describe him or even whether he was one or two Demons. Scott saw this guy as one demon and did a perfect job with him.

He started out with a pencil drawing:

Then moved on to ink his drawing:

I really think the inks stand out!!!

Than he did the final colored version:

Demon # 30

Tonight I present another Demon.

This Demon is features on the double page spread in Preludes And Nocturnes.

Scott wanted to make this Demon resemble a massive tumor with a small head.

Demon # 92

I love this little guy.

He's barely noticable in Preludes And Nocturnes, but I always thought he was sort of cool...you know...for a background character.

I think Scott did a fantastic job on this Demon, even though he was wasn't sure if he liked him.

Agony and Ecstacy

Today we are in for a treat. Not only do we get two awesome characters, but we also get those two characters from start to finish.

Agony and Ecstacy appear in Preludes And Nocturnes. After Choronzon is defeated by Morpheus, Lucifer called Agony and Ecstacy to come and take Choronzon to his punishment.

Scott did an excellent job distinguishing these two characters from each other and, once again, gave them a life of their own.

Here are the rough pencils that Scott did for the characters:

Next Scott did some inks:

And the finished drawings:

Demon # 23

This demon appears on the double page spread from Preludes And Nocturnes when Morpheus is searching for his stolen helmet.

Scott and I both agree that this demon is a quintessential Sam Kieth character. He sort of reminds me a lot of the Iz from the MAXX series.

Demon # 33

Tonight I am happy to present another Demon from Preludes and Nocturnes.

This one is easy to spot.

Here is the original ink drawing as well as the final colored version.

Demon # 21 (From Start To Finish)

Today is an extra special treat. We get to see Scott's process from start to finish with one of the demons from Preludes And Nocturnes.

This demon is pretty prominent on the double page spread from Sandman # 4.

Scott started with some rough sketches trying to get a feel of how he wanted to represent the character. Here are four examples of his rough sketches.

Scott then found a sketch that he liked and he inked that drawing.

Finally, once the drawing was inked he added the color and finished the drawing.

Here is the final drawing!!!

Demon # 25

Here is another Demon.

This Demon, as you might suspect, is from Preludes And Nocturnes. He is in the double page spread and is not obvious unless you really sit down and look for him.

As usual Scott did an excellent job with this little guy. He made him pretty creepy.

Here are the inks and then the final color drawing.

Demon # 14

Today we have another Demon.

Instead of one of the many demons from Preludes And Nocturnes this little guy is one of the demons who appear inside the Globe Of Salaiman Ben Daoud. This globe contained 9,009 Ifrits, Djinn and Demons. Haroun Al Raschid threatened to shatter this globe is the King Of Dreams, Morpheus, did not appear to him and grant him his fondest wish.

This story is told in Ramadan (Sandman # 50), which is one of the most popular Sandman stories from the entire series.
