Sanderson ManSnoozie

Sanderson ManSnoozie is the Rise of the Guardians re-imagining of the Sandman, the mythic bringer of dreams. He is the first ever Guardian, the Guardian of Dreams. He lives on a island. It appears that he is Pitch's true enemy, and really the only one that he is afraid of. Sadly, in the movie, he is seemingly destroyed when Pitch turns him into a nightmare, but he returns at the end, using a dreamsand whip to defeat him once and for all.

Physical Appearance

Sandman is a short and squat individual, garbed in an outfit made of his dream sand, appearing as a rippling single-piece suit of sorts. His hair is golden and short, styled into five points, and glitters like his sand. He also has tiny feet and golden brown eyes.


Sandman is peaceful by nature. He never speaks as he doesn't want to wake anyone up, but instead communicates with his expressions and forming images from his dream sand, which is odd because for one who never speaks, Sandy appears to have plenty to say. Though mostly peaceful and calm, Sandy is fierce fighter, able to create whips from his dream sand to attack his opponents.

He finds those who threaten children intolerable, as he aggressively attacked Pitch without warning, primarily because Sandy cares deeply for children and puts their well-being before his own.

Sandy has a vivid imagination and a positive effect on his fellow Guardians, with all of whom he holds a beloved and deep friendship.

Sandy can be a little silly and childish himself (as shown by his behavior when he and his fellow Guardians turned collecting teeth into a competition), and can mistakenly take things literally, like when Bunnymund told him to "knock [Jamie] out" with the sand, Sandy intended to punch Jamie out until Bunnymund corrected him. He also dislikes it when no one seems to notice or understand him when he's trying to communicate, as he literally shook an elf so its jingle bell would earn him the Guardians' undivided attention so he could point out the Man in the Moon.
