The Toddler is the protagonist of Among The Sleep. Through out the game he is accompanied by Teddy, a bear who has the ability to speak, provide light and give hints to help solve puzzles.
She appears to be wearing blue footed pajamas with stars and moons on it. We only see the girl's arms in-game and her back in the cover for the game, from which we can assume that the girl's hair is brown and has white skin, relating from her mother.
In The Game Edit
As the game opens, the mother is celebrating her second birthday. After answering the door to an unknown caller, her mother hands her a present, a teddy bear, then leaves her upstairs in her bedroom with the new toy.
Later, the mother puts her to bed. She then wakes in the night to find Teddy has been taken away, and her mother is missing. After finding Teddy in the washing machine, she and Teddy journey through a variety of twisted paranormal rooms with the recurring theme of disturbing hidden drawings, wine bottles scattered across the floor,and move in boxes. in order to seek out memories to help them find her mother. While trying to find the memories, she is hunted by three frightening monsters in the shape of, a coat, a stranger with an umbrella, and a large angry woman.
In the final area, she begins to hear her parents arguing over their divorce in muffled and distorted shouting tone. After the last memory was found, Teddy is captured by the monster and his arm torn off. Afterwards, she had visions of the mother, when it is revealed that after she was divorced, she subsequently fell into depression and severe alcoholism. The bottles seen throughout the game are a cruel reminder to her of the thing that makes his mother turn into an abusive monster. The entire story up to that point had been a scared girl way of making sense of an extremely troubled childhood, and the monsters chasing her was in fact the abusive mother who had been tormenting her for 2 years and the father who had been trying to protect her by taking him away from her. Teddy is also also revealed to be a present given by the father.
Once the memories are completed, she returns to the house, in which they will find the mother sobbing on the kitchen floor after having torn off Teddy's arm. When she attempts to retrieve Teddy, her mother then pushed her, and apologizes before resuming crying. Hearing the door knock, he pick up Teddy and open the door. A kindly voice will be heard, who happily greets her and promises that he will fix Teddy.
It is speculated that the father appearing at the end was him achieving custody over her or finally being able to take her away from his mother after their divorce. It is unknown when their divorce occurred, making exactly what happened slightly ambiguous. It is also unknown whether the drinking and abuse started before the divorce, or after.
