The King in Crimson
I stand amid the roar
of a surf-tormented shore,
and I hold within my hand
grains of the golden sand.

How few! Yet how they creep
through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep—while I weep!

O God! can I not grasp
them with a tighter clasp?
O God! can I not save
one from the pitiless wave?

Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?
- Edgar Allan Poe

AKA: The Red King, The King In Red, The Scarlet Sovereign
Nature: Unknown. Suspected to be a chimerical being, possibly one of the "Dreamborn".
