Warning: The main spoilers of The Sandman below, and as the program follows the comics very closely, Spoiler alert for those too.
Who is Rose Walker?
Rose Walker appears for the first time very briefly in season 1, episode 5 as a friend of one of the unfortunate diners, Judy, the woman who looks for her girlfriend after a fight. However, Rose does not appear as a complete character until the first moments of episode 7, where we see her parents separate her from her little brother from her Jed from her. Then we quickly see Rose years later in the present, now last, where she is trying to locate Jed with the help of the neighbor and best friend of her, Lyta.
Rose ends up knowing her grandmother unity of her, more about her at one time, who continues with Rose in search of her to find Jed, sending Rose and Lyta to Florida.

However, all this is only part of Rose’s story, since she is something that is known as Vortex, more specifically Dream Vortex. So what does this mean?
The vortices of dreams are not completely explained even at the end of the season, since it is said that they are even Dream itself does not understand completely. Regardless, this does not mean that we do not have an idea of what they are, since it is clearly shown within the program that a Dream Vortex has the ability to manipulate and knock down the walls between reality and dreams. This is in particular when it comes to Lyta being pregnant in the world of vigil after becoming pregnant in the kingdom of sleep.
In addition, the Vortex have a slower aging process, which explains why it is constantly commented that Rose looks young for her age. These beings also have the ability to attract other dream creations, which explains exactly why Morpheus subjects are so aware of their presence. Finally, it is said that the vortices of dreams are natural phenomena, since they will appear apparently by themselves.
However, a wrinkle with Rose is added like a Vortex, since it is revealed at the end of the season that was supposed to be Dream Vortex. At the premiere of The Sandman series, we see that people around the world are affected by something that is considered sleep disease. However, thanks to the fact that Roderick Burgess captured Morpheus, random people around the world contract this disease and enter into a coma, being unity one of those people. It is just because Dream escapes Burges that people can wake up from the disease, but because a century lasts, Unity is the only survivor of the initial victims.
So what does this have to do with Dream Vortexes? Well, it turns out that vortices can be transmitted from generation to generation, something that Dream had never found before, since he generally killed them before they caused too many problems. However, due to Unity coma, she could not become a complete vortex.
It is revealed at the end of the first season that Dream ’S Endless’s brother, Desire, had impregnated Unity in her dreams, and had also left her pregnant in real life. Desire has always wanted to mess with her brother, with this particular plot being that they wanted to make sure a vortex would form. Desire has new relations with Unity to make sure that the threat of such danger could affect Morpheus and not only stop due to Unity’s disease.
Despite Desire’s plans, Unity voluntarily sacrifices for her granddaughter when taking all the powers of Rose’s Vortex Vortex and allow Morpheus to destroy her instead of her granddaughter. This is just something she could do, thanks to the fact that she was once supposed to be a vortex. For now, it seems that Desire has frustrated her plans.
