Nimue is a sleek predatory seductress of the Shadow Court, as adept at corrupting your child or your pet as your wife or your boyfriend. She is Queen Morgan La Fey’s most trusted agent and holds incriminating files on many Seelie nobles and mortal celebrities.
It wasn’t always this way. Nimue was trained by the Ladies of the Lake, supposedly to succeed Viviane as the next Lady. No one knows why she betrayed her sisterhood. Some say she saw her future in the waters and ran from it in horror. Others say the betrayal itself was what she foresaw and she dutifully carried out her Dan (fate). Regardless, the Ladies of the Lake offer a bounty for Nimue’s recapture but their auguries seem powerless to entrap her.
Somehow, Nimue was able to track down the feral Sir Hugsalot in the ruins of Tintagel House and manipulate the beast into stealing children. She was able to identify the Dreamer who had created Hugsalot (Thora Drake) but not in time to prevent Sir Gawaine from meeting Thora and putting her under his protection. Later she managed to kidnap Thora but was stomped on by Sir Hugsalot. Although she died chimerically, this will not have killed her permanently.
It’s not clear whether Nimue had figured out Thora’s true identity or not, but she certainly identified her as a powerful Dreamer and wanted to bring her to Morgan La Fay.
