History: (X-Men: The 198 Files I#1 (fb) - BTS) - The real name and past of the mind-altering mutant known as Beautiful Dreamer are unknown.(Power Pack I#12 (fb) - BTS) - Through unrevealed circumstances, Beautiful Dreamer came to live with the Morlocks, a community of mutants living in the tunnels under New York. (Power Pack I#12 (fb) - BTS) - Beautiful Dreamer came to live with a subsection of Morlocks known as "drain dwellers", including the empathic Annalee and her children, Ape, Erg, Masque, Piper, and Tar Baby. The murder of Annalee's children by an unidentified "surface dweller" compelled the others to find a way to replace them for her. (see comments) (Power Pack I#12) - Presented with the young members of the Power Pack as a replacement for Annalee's children, Beautiful Dreamer began to panic upon learning they were from the surface. Reassured that they were captured in the storm drains, Piper argued that they owed it to Annalee to provide her with children following her loss, which they considered their fault. Beautiful Dreamer waited with her fellow Morlocks for Masque (able to alter the appearance of others) to arrive, but soon ran to safety when Power Pack freed themselves and X-Men Nightcrawler and Kitty Pryde arrived. (Uncanny X-Men#195) - Beautiful Dreamer joined the Morlocks during a confrontation with Pryde for Energizer of the Power Pack, who Annalee wanted to keep as her child following her disfigurement by Masque. (X-Factor I#10) - Waiting while Erg cooked hotdogs for the two of them, Beautiful Dreamer was shocked and horrified as Arclight, Harpoon, Sabretooth, and Scalphunter of the Marauders burst into the Morlock tunnels and began slaughtering mutants. Whisked away by Erg, Beautiful Dreamed cried for help as her friend Zeek was impaled on one of Harpoon's electrified weapons. Tripping over the body of a fallen Morlock, Erg dropped Beautiful Dreamer, leaving them to face the approaching Marauders. Rescued by Cyclops, Iceman, and Beast of X-Factor, Beautiful Dreamer recovered while Erg informed told X-Factor about their attackers.

Beautiful Dreamer received brief profiles in the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Deluxe Edition I#9's Morlocks section, and in X-Men: The 198 Files I#1. The former states her height as 5'8'', the latter 5'1''; in lieu of further information it's assumed the more recently given height is the better accurate of the two.
While Beautiful Dreamer's powers are usually used via cigarette smoke, her Legacy Virus induced power flare-up had her creating her "dream smoke" herself. Presumably, should Beautiful Dreamer return (stanger things've happened), her powers will be used in this fashion following Marvel's ban on the use of tobacco products.
In her earliest appearances, Beautiful Dreamer appears to be an awkwardly thin, older woman wearing tattered clothing (including an old feather boa). By the time she made return appearances, Beautiful Dreamer became depicted as a much younger woman, more averagely skinny than the gaunt figure of her earlier appearances, and her clothing style appeared less scraps of clothing from her younger days, and more a quirky fashion choice.
The killer of Annalee's children was later identified as Scalphunter of the Marauders in Uncanny X-Men I#211.
