Discovery and Hiring
The remainder of this article contains lore created collaboratively by the Blaseball community.
Sutton Dreamy was discovered by the Crabs following an early pre-Season One practice game, during which an luminescent cloud of nebulous matter moved onto the field and asked "excuse me, I think I'm dreaming. Could I have some help?"
Upon a short trek through the flooded streets of Baltimore, the directions of the cloud that would later come to be known as Sutton Dreamy revealed an unconscious living body lying within an abandoned house. MRI scans and medical examinations failed to produce evidence regarding the cause of this manifestation - or indeed, any results besides garbled noise at all - and following a quick discussion between team co-managers Howard and Dwayne they were signed on to the team, mostly because they were short on people and didn't know where else to place her.
As a manifestation of Sutton Dreamy's sleeping body's unconscious, Sutton Dreamy is a selectively material form that frequently shifts in color, shape, sound, texture, and scent. However, most of their appearances up to bat have manifested as humanoid clouds of multicolored stardust.
Sutton Dreamy's dream self, like other blaseball players, does not sleep, though this is likely more because they are already asleep. As a result, they spend most nights wandering the fields of the Crabitat.
While they are able to move freely independent of their sleeping body, Sutton has expressed strain at moving too far from it, and thus have requested the other players of the Crabs to help carry the body in a wheelbarrow to and from away games to sit on the sidelines. Notably, Tillman Henderson has never been spotted assisting in this task. Ugh. Typical Tillman.
Following the election results of Season β5, the Crabs were granted multiple blessings, of which Rollback Netcode and Horde Hallucinations impacted Sutton. As their eternal sleep is functionally an indefinite hallucination anyways, Sutton has reported holding a far more material form and heightened lucidity following the events, adding to the heightened number of home runs struck by her over the Crabs' impeccable Season β6.
During the election of Season 6, she was additionally granted the Night Vision Goggles. A lack of instruction manual or guide as to whether it was intended to be attached to her dreamself or sleeping body hampered its initial use, but tinkering aid from Axel Trololol helped clarify the function of the device.
Sutton Dreamy's Night Vision Goggles run on an antisolar battery tied to the light waves emitted by Solar Eclipse events, and along with standard night vision and immunity to the eye-scorching rays of the eclipsed sun, also grant Sutton the ability to peek into other players' dreams, even while those players are awake. This unique ability has proven to hone her play dramatically during games under an eclipse, as the dreams of her opponents seem to act as portents regarding blaseball details such as the curve of the pitch and the expectations of the outfield.
