Nimue is the Lady of the Lake, a powerful enchantress and head of a sisterhood of powerful pagan priestesses. She is not only a priestess, but also studied under the great Merlin. Nimue is among the most firm supporters of the king. She has taken over the magical protection once provided by Merlin, who has mysteriously disappeared.
Her home is beneath a magical lake which comes and goes at her call, and which may appear in almost any land. Beneath it is a great palace where her lover, Sir Pelleas, lives, and where Lancelot, Bors, and Lionel were raised.
The Isle of Avalon, the home of her pagan sisterhood, is a magical place like Nimue’s lake. It exists at the edges of normal reality, sometimes not in this world at all. It, however, does not move about, and if found is found in the marshes of Somerset.
