Demos Oneiroi by rustymermaid Demos Oneiroi by rustymermaid
Demos Oneiroi

Demos Oneiroi simply means “the land of dreams” taken from Greek mythology. The Oneiroi were black winged demons, their father was the god of sleep, Hypnos. Each night, the Oneiroi would fly from their home, passing through one of two gates to deliver dreams to the sleeping people. Which gate they passed through would determine how meaningful, or true, the dream they would receive was.

sorry for correcting you :)), but 'demos' rather means 'people' or 'tribe/clan' (hence 'demo-cracy'... as antique athens anmd other polei were organized in quarters/clans called 'demos' :))
...
so it would be more adaquate to speak of 'dream people' ... oneiroi simply means 'dreams' :))
