The Ishtar wiki last edited by pikahyper on 03/20/14 10:09PM View full history

In the Brief Lives arc of The Sandman, Dream and Delirium seek out "the Dancing Woman" (as Delirium refers to her on her list of possible leads) during their quest to find Destruction. Dream recognizes the goddess as having been Destruction's lover (one that had been a "bad influence"). In the course of their conversation he also calls her Belili and Astarte (the latter is considered in classical myth to probably actually be a different group's name for the same goddess, the former is in some tellings the predecessor to Ishtar/Astarte). After Dream and Delirium leave, she dances her true dance, blissfully killing everyone in the building (including herself).
