Is The Corinthian Dead?
Purely talking, no. The Corinthian is a Nightmare developed by Dream out of the exact same stuff that he is made from. His initial objective was to reveal the people their deepest, darkest secrets, the repellent features of themselves that they conceal from the waking world yet need to face when sleeping and also in the Dreaming. The Corinthian expands tired of his job as well as wants to discover the waking world, to which he leaves. Before he can bring him back, Dream is caught by Roderick Burgess. For the century that Dream invests in his glass prison (thanks to The Corinthian’s pointer), his Nightmare runs amok in the waking world, ultimately resulting in the development of a cult of serial killers that praise him.
It remains in conversation with some of his fans that the very first hint of The Corinthian’s variations is dropped. Human beings are uninformed of the presence of the Endless and Dream’s Nightmares. The tale of The Corinthian develops over the course of more than a century, which is what leads people to believe that for many years, various individuals have actually used up that mantle. The MO of the murders and also the title of the serial awesome stay the exact same. They do not recognize that The Corinthian is not a human as well as hence, neither ages nor dies.
After a little difficulty triggered by Rose’s blurring of the lines in between the Dreaming and also the waking globe, Dream prospers in controling his creation. As was previously demonstrated by Dream’s therapy of Gault, he never really ruins his creations.

So, if you believed that this was the last you ‘d seen of him, you should brace yourself for an additional distressing variation of The Corinthian. One way or another, he’ll return.
