"Name of the Game" Month - Duerma

Prompt: Use a verb (in any tense, language or spelling) as the first name of a character.

Source: None


Duerma was stooped. His hair hung limp, sweeping lifelessly around his cheeks and chin. His ears, visible when his hair parted around them, drooped as though the cartilage in them had been removed. His back was sloped and his eyes stared out above wrinkled pockets of gray flesh. He looked much older than his years, stooped and bent.

Notes: Duerma is a form of the Spanish verb dormir, which means "to sleep".
