Nada was the queen of the city where man began, according to an African myth passed down from generation to generation.
In old myth, Nada presided over Africa as its queen. Dream of the the Endless took her, a mortal, as his lover, even though it was forbidden for one of his kind to do so. The myth relates that, when the sun saw what they had done, it melted Nada's city of glass with a great fireball. Seeing what their relationship had caused, but at a loss for a way to end it, Nada committed suicide.
Dream, infuriated by her rejection of him, condemned her to Hell, and showed no remorse about doing so, until his sister, Death, eventually chastised him for it.
Compelled to make amends, Dream freed her from Hell and she was reincarnated into a newborn.
