HYPNOS is the God of Sleep, which he induces with purest opium smoked through a horn. Potentially also the God of Hyppies.
He could also be the god of comas and dangerous addictions, for he works with his deadly brother THANATOS, the God of Death, for HADES Underworld Operations Inc.
Fortunately, he has recently found a better use for his talents and gave his name to Hypnosis, the mesmerizing modern miracle of psycho-physiological somnambulism. You are feeling sleepy... Sleeeeepy.
He has three sleepy sons, most famous of which is probably MORPHEUS. zzzz
