“The Prodigal”, referred to by Desire in their plot against Dream in the first season of the Netflix series, is the Terminator, the middle child of Endless. Caught between the elder Endless of Dream, Destiny and Death and the Endless of Desire, Despair and the younger Delirium, he is left to his own devices. He is called “The Prodigal” because, like Prodigal Son in the BibleThe Terminator abandoned his family. Around the 1700s, Destruction decided he had enough to be the embodiment of destruction, and he wanted to go do some creation. He began to find himself and learn everything, learning to play musical instruments and draw pictures. Of course, giving up your position doesn’t mean things stop being destroyed; he just no longer has control or influence on how those things happen.
In the comics, the Terminator is depicted as a burly red-haired man with a trimmed beard and mustache. He finally appears in the “Brief Lives” arc, when Dream and Endless’s youngest brother, Delirium, go looking for him after centuries of separation. He is often found with his closest companion, a talking dog named Barnabas.
If Netflix’s “The Sandman” outpaces “Brief Lives,” which is the seventh episode out of 10, they’ll need to find the Terminator. Two potential candidates to play Endless’s middle child are Mike Colter and Jon Bernthal. Both have worked with Netflix before (Colter as “Luke Cage” and Bernthal as Punisher in “Daredevil”), both have the same stunning physiques as the Terminator’s, and both carry a sweet sadness that can transform into a disappearing god of destruction. to reflect spirituality. It’s partially nuanced, but either person can knock it out of the park.
