In that Olfena's supernatural magic could grant any wish without cost was another reason for its name. However, Olfena insisted that, despite her magnificent powers, she far preferred her life in the land of dreams. Many asked why she did not make the most of such an incredible ability, but her response was always the same. The odd mage would simply look at the inquirer with drowsy eyes and tell them, "Because then I wouldn't be sleeping."
See Olfena, Dreamcaster.
Her story somehow resembles the Sandman, a mythical character in central and northern European folklore who brings good dreams by sprinkling magical sand onto the eyes of people while they sleep at night. Traditionally, he is a character in many children's stories.
