Big spoilers ahead for The Sandman
Rose Walker is officially introduced in Episode 7. She is a 21 year old woman who recently lost her mother and is on a mission to find the brother she was separated from many years ago. While staying in an apartment paid for by her late mother, Rose receives an invitation from a mysterious foundation requesting her presence in London.
Rose doesn’t really have any money as she is unemployed. Luckily for her, the mysterious foundation paid for everything. All Rose has to do is show up. Rose decides to take her neighbor and friend Lyta with her on the trip. When they finally reach the place where the mysterious foundation is located, they discover that the place is a private nursing home for the elderly. Although confused by the situation, they entered the house anyway.
Rose and Lyta are taken to a woman named Unity Kincaid. Looking around Unity’s room, Rose notices a dollhouse that looks brand new. Unity explains to her that it’s actually old and was a present for her twelfth birthday. Unfortunately, she was never able to play with it because on her birthday she fell ill with encephalitis lethargica, an illness that put her in a deep sleep for a very long time. Unity also mentions that in her dreams she lived a wonderful life where she met a golden-eyed man and had a baby. However, when Unity finally awoke from her deep sleep, she found that nothing was real except that she was having a baby.
Is Unity Kincaid related to Rose in The Sandman?
Yes! While suffering from sleeping sickness in a hospital, Unity Kincaid gave birth to a little girl who was later put up for adoption. Their child later had a daughter of their own named Miranda Walker as she grew older. Miranda Walker is Rose’s mother. This means that Unity is Kincaid Rose’s maternal great-grandmother. But who fathered Unity’s child?
Who was the father of Unity’s baby?
In the last episode of the season we find out that Desire of the Endless (Mason Alexander Park) was the father of Unity’s child. This means that Desire is Rose’s other maternal great-grandparents. When Dream (Tom Sturridge) was locked up, Desire took advantage by doing what they wanted. It is implied that Desire raped Unity while suffering from sleeping sickness.
Desire fathered a child with Unity because they knew the child would become the Dream Vortex and Dream would be forced to kill it. If Dream were to kill the child, he would be killing a member of his own family, which is considered an unforgivable offense. Conceiving a child with Unity was part of Desire’s plan to take Dream down.
