Character Details

Summary: Originally introduced into the Sandman universe as a rampaging serial killer who happens to be a transgender woman, Echo is relentlessly pursued by The Corinthian as punishment for her crimes. She escapes to the world of the Dreaming where she is reborn as a woman. Told by Dream that she must become the third Corinthian, she is sent back into the 'waking world' on a journey of discovery. Echo is not the first transgender primary character in the Sandman universe; that honor goes to the legendary Wanda in the arc titled "Game of You." However, Echo is the first transgender character in Sandman who was created by a trans woman (Caitlín Rebekah Kiernan).
