If one of the Endless is destroyed, then they will be replaced by another aspect of their role, but this does not occur if they are simply absent or inactive. In such cases, the aspect of existence supervised by that member of the Endless becomes more random and chaotic.
Nigh-Omniscience: Death is possibly the most powerful of the Endless having been shown (in a flashback in Brief Lives) to be virtually omniscient and being able to intimidate the Furies, who show no fear of the other Endless, simply by raising her voice.

The power levels of the siblings are largely related to their age. The older an Endless is, the more powerful they are. However, despite being the second-oldest Endless, Death is said to be their most powerful member.
In the series, the Corinthian displays his talent for possessing the bodies of the living, a process which causes the possessed body's hair to turn white and the eye sockets to bleed as the eyes are replaced (possibly eaten) by the Corinthian's teeth.
If one of the Endless is destroyed, then he or she will be replaced by another aspect of their role, but this does not occur if they are simply absent or inactive. In such cases, the aspect of existence supervised by that member of the Endless becomes more random and chaotic.
Destiny, the eldest of the Endless, is one of the most powerful and influential of his siblings. As the ultimate observer, Destiny is the personification of fate and is generally all-knowing.
Death is the strongest of the Endless because of how necessary she is, and because she will be the last of them to exist.
Father Time is the personification of Time and rules over his domain. Time is the father to the Endless and with his partner Night, made all of Creation possible. However, in present times, Time and Night are separated and estranged from their families.
The Endless: Destruction Is the Missing Prodigal
The Endless, in order of appearance in the universe, are Destiny, Death, Dream, Destruction, twins Desire and Despair, and Delirium, who was once known as Delight. The seven are much more than mere gods: they are personifications of core aspects of conscious existence.
Children of Time and Night, the Endless were born just as the universe was put into motion. Before any human, magical creature, or god existed, the Endless were there as the personification of one of the vital aspects of life.
The Endless are a somewhat dysfunctional family of seven siblings who each represent an aspect of life: Dream, Death, Destiny, Despair, Desire, Delirium and Destruction.
Dream is without question one of the strongest characters in The Sandman universe thanks to his powerful and varied abilities and also because he is more than willing to act on his power. Dream is so powerful that he is even willing to venture into Hell itself to confront Lucifer Morningstar when the need arises.
Caregivers, family, and healthcare providers should always act as if the dying person is aware of what is going on and is able to hear and understand voices. Hearing is one of the last senses to lapse before death.
In total there are seven members of The Endless, but only four of them appear in the first season of The Sandman: Dream, Death (Kirby Howell-Baptiste), Desire (Mason Alexander Park) and Despair (Donna Preston).
7. Delirium. The least powerful of the Endless is poor Delirium, who was once Delight.
As children of Time and Darkness, the Endless are incredibly powerful beings, capable to create entire realms and dimensions while existing as the embodiment of their realms. They are said to be more powerful than every single god, even surpassing some of the weaker Primordials.
The Endless are each the seven children of even older entities, known as Mother NightOpens in new tab and Father TimeOpens in new tab. Destiny was born first, followed by Death, then Dream, Destruction, the twins known as Desire and Despair, and finally, Delirium, the youngest.
Mother Night is a cosmic being introduced in The Sandman: Overture, the embodiment of the absolute emptiness that predates creation. She is revealed to be the mother of The Endless with her consort, Time.
While the Dream Vortex threatens to annihilate the Dreaming if left unchecked, Rose's powers still cannot rival those of Lord Morpheus, Dream of the Endless. Rose is a human who can only hurt the Dreaming when she's asleep. Morpheus, on the other hand, is still Endless even between realms.
Death is a cousin of Lucifer in the comics, instead of sister. And she is the only member of The Endless to have a set of angelic wings (though Morpheus AKA Dream can fly). She uses her wings when transporting souls to the afterlife.
The second eldest of the Endless, Death is also the kindest, precisely because she knows what Destiny has in store for us: the end of our paths. While her big brother represents the exchange of energy in the universe, she represents an important aspect of this exchange: it's a zero-sum game.
The Endless are also forbidden from spilling their family's blood. If they break these rules, they risk their own destruction.
According to Gaiman: "The reason the Endless didn't free him isn't because they weren't aware of the situation, but because they aren't a superteam; rushing to the rescue isn't what they're about.
