nimue, lady of the lake, enchantment, magician


Author: Obsidian

The tutor and companion of Arthur in his earlier years, Merlin the Magician is nearly as well known as his protege, whose life he parallels in many instances. He is also said to have been conceived in infamous circumstances, and he too falls ultimately to treachery brought on by his own weaknesses. He is well-known for having fallen under the enchantment of a Lady of the Lake, Nimue, said to have imprisoned him "under a stone"; but is important to note that his fate is ambiguous in the early sources, and it may be that Nimue simply replaced him, rather than suborning him.
