In Greek mythology, Morpheus was the god of dreams and one of the sons of Hypnos, the god of sleep. He was often depicted as a winged and bearded figure, holding a horn of sleep or a dream-inducing poppy. He was responsible for sending dreams to mortals and was considered to be a messenger of the gods.

Morpheus was said to have the ability to take on any form and appear in people’s dreams in the shape of their loved ones or enemies. He was also said to have the ability to control the content of people’s dreams and to have the power to give people prophetic dreams.

In many myths, Morpheus was portrayed as having a close relationship with his father Hypnos and his brothers, Phobetor, the god of nightmares and Icelus, the god of shape-shifting. He was often depicted as a guide who helped people navigate through their dreams and understand the hidden meanings of their subconscious thoughts.
