|Position||Ruler of the Dream realm and Dimension|

Earliest Existence Edit
Once the servant of the being known as Shuma-Gorath, Nightmare realized that his power was far too great for him to be a mere servant. When he noticed this, he escaped Shuma-Gorath by diving into the Splinter Dimension known as the Dream Dimension. Once there, Nightmare took over the dimension and grew increasingly in power with every Nightmare he cast into a mortal mind. Without knowing, Nightmare soon became dependent on the fear he caused, and soon after he required fear to live.
Creating an Offspring Edit
Approximately 800 years in the past, Nightmare raped the woman known as Zilla Char, producing a daughter, who would call herself Dreamqueen. Then, 350 years in the past, Nightmare meddled with the Dreamqueen's schemes involving Native Americans.
Living among Humans Edit
When Nightmare began to lose his power due to the lack of fear he was able to maintain in his dimension, Nightmare physically ventured into the human realm. Once there, Nightmare took up the alias of Edvard Haberdash and took control of a nightclub and renamed it "Club Fear." The club was used to draw people seeking a thrill, as Nightmare would show them their greatest fear for a price. Little did the thrill-seekers know that their fear was feeding Nightmare, increasing his power.
