Nimue (also known as Niviane), is the enchantress of Merlin. She beguiled Merlin into revealing all his magical secrets and he becomes enamored of her. She refuses to give him her love until he has taught her everything, after which she uses her power to trap him. Though Merlin, through his power of foresight knows beforehand that this will happen, he is unable to counteract Nimue because of the "truth" this ability of foresight holds. He decides to do nothing for his situation other than to continue to teach her his secrets until she then imprisoned him in a Hawthorn tree. Some say it was a Tomb, others say a Cave.
