Nimue, or the "Lady of the Lake" was actually a sorceress from the future who helped Ciri find the way to Stygga castle. She is a graduate of one of the magical academies - most likely Aretuza. As a girl, she took special interest in the history Ciri and Geralt, and in particular their ultimate fate. Over time she began to lose interest in Ciri's story, but an unexpected encounter with a mysterious man re-ignited her interest. In her private tower, she scoured images depicting scenes from the sagas, as well as all the books, fables, legends; every nook and cranny trying to find more information about Ciri's history. She even recruited an assistant, Condwiramurs Tilly, who helped with her knowledge of ballads and singing.

Nimue has an elder sister named Orla. They both appear as children in a minor scene from the future in the novel Chrzest Ognia (Baptism of Fire).

One of her lovers was the Fisher King.
