The sorceress who cast the spell that allowed Uther and Igraine to conceive Arthur. After Igraine died in childbirth as per the conditions of the magic, it served as a catalyst for Uther's hatred of magic and the massacre that followed. Throughout the first season, Nimueh works against Uther from a distance in order to undermine his rule. She appeared in ''[[{{Recap/MerlinS01E03TheMarkOfNimueh}} The Mark of Nimueh]]'', ''[[{{Recap/MerlinS01E04ThePoisonedChalice}} The Poisoned Chalice]]'', ''[[{{Recap/MerlinS01E09Excalibur}} Excalibur]]'' and ''[[{{Recap/MerlinS01E13LeMortdArthur}} Le Mort d'Arthur]]''.

* SeenItAll: There's very little he ''can't'' give Merlin a spell or solution for. As long as the threat or problem is magical in nature, personal problems not so much. Justifed in that he's at least a thousand years old.

* SatelliteLoveInterest: She gets ''one'' scene in which she's permitted to share details of her past (and even that is more of a MythologyGag that establishes her affinity for lakes), the rest of the time she only exists so that Merlin can be her [[TheCaretaker Caretaker]], enjoy openly using his magic in front of her, and experience manpain when she dies. It's especially glaring when he takes her to a lakeside in order to [[LetThemDieHappy Let Her Die Happy]] and she mutters: "you remembered..." Well of course he remembered - her love of lakes is the only personal detail she ever shares with him!

* SatelliteLoveInterest: Notably {{subverted}} with two more of Arthur's. She is brought to Camelot to join in an ArrangedMarriage to Arthur, but instead of being treated as a mere impediment to his happiness with Guinevere, she is a likeable and developed character. Her importance to the narrative has less to do with her relationship to Arthur as it does her role as an UnwittingPawn in [[TheFairFolk The Fair Folks']] attempt to take over Camelot.

* HeelFaceTurn: Sort of. He's actually a fairly neutral chracter, though we're initally led to believe that he's an EvilSorcerer in league with Morgana. On finding out that Merlin is the mysterious Emrys, he declares his loyalty to him.
