The Candlemaker is an egregore, removed from the physical plane of existence eons ago who one day discovers an opportunity to escape into the physical realm in the form of Sydney, an ape-faced girl with an addiction to cute little horse parties called Bella Sara. She stood beside a crumpled van on a desert highway, bewildered and trembling as he clung to a white tennis shoe during a blinding sandstorm in the Dreaming, Morpheus’s realm, and the waking world, with occasional visits to other domains, such as Hell, Faerie, Asgard, and the domains of the other Endless. Sydney has about 24 horses already. But in DC Universe Bella Sara is rarely featured after 1990, so Sydney gets frustrated and her horses go hungry. she reaches out to Lyta Hall, formerly Fury of the 1980s super-team Infinity Inc. and other planets spirits imploring their help to extend her powers through the cosmos. The woman is now a young girl again. Sitting atop a large rock, she looks up to the heavens with a smile on her face. Then she vanished.
