Handicapped Kid # 2 (illustrated by Lars Brown)

Urania Blackwall lives alone in a dark apartment. She never leaves her house. Her only connection to the outside world is a man names Mulligan who is her contact with The Company.

One day, out of the blue, she received a phone call from an old co-worker, Della Kariakis (formerly Della Porter). Della invites her for lunch at a restaurant called Da Vinci in the mall.

Urania prepares for her lunch date by making a silicate mask that resembled her face prior to her transformation.

When Urania meets Della for lunch, she learns that Della has a secret pregnancy that she cannot share with anyone from the company due to the illicit nature of the relationship with the father, who is a married man with the company.

As they prepare to eat lunch a group of handicapped kids pass by with their teachers. Della comments that she hopes her baby is not a freak like them. When Urania tried to defend the children Della explains that they make her skin crawl.

At this moment Urania’s mask falls off, into her spaghetti and Urania runs out of the restaurant, upset.

This girl is one of the handicapped kids who pass by the restaurant as Urania and Della are eating lunch.

She appears in Sandman # 20, on page 10, in panel 5.
