Nimue (, more frequently referred to by her title ニミュエ Nimyue ) ? Lady of the Lake (, is a character in 湖の貴婦人 Mizūmi no kifujin ) ? . She is the alternate reality doppelgänger of Sonic and the Black Knight Amy Rose from the world of Camelot. She is a skilled enchantress and former guardian of the sacred sword Excalibur.
Merlina's behest, Sonic and Caliburn journey to Nimue's home in Deep Woods in their quest to determine how to blunt the power of Excalibur's scabbard. Sonic is predictably unnerved by the Lady's resemblance to Amy Rose, but Caliburn remonstrates the hedgehog and they enter the laketop pavilion.
Nimue blames herself in part for the present state of the
Grand Kingdom, as she was the one who initially gave Excalibur to King Arthur, only for the power of the scabbard to corrupt the once-noble King. She agrees to help Sonic only if he can prove himself a true and honorable knight who will not be similarly bewitched, and assigns the hedgehog three tasks to demonstrate his chivalry.
After Sonic has completed the first task, liberating King Arthur's prisoners in
Camelot Castle, Nimue magically disguises herself as a distraught child whose fellow villagers have been kidnapped by a dragon. The hedgehog's heroism in saving the townspeople convinces the Lady of Sonic's intentions, and she tells Sonic how to negate the scabbard's power using the sacred swords wielded by the Knights of the Round Table.
Sonic's battle against the Dark Queen in the Dark Hollow, Nimue's reflecting pool allows her and the Knights to communicate with Sonic and Caliburn.
I've been waiting for you, knight from another world." —Nimue meeting Sonic for the first time.
In the King Arthur/Holy Grail legend, Nimue is the adopted mother of Sir Lancelot.
She is also noted to be the one who created Arondight out of stars and gave it to Lancelot.
Unlike the other Arthurian-reality-versions of Sonic's companions, Nimue is not playable in multiplayer mode (although Sonic and the Black Knight's Amy Rose is playable).
In Arthurian legend, it is noted that she goes by many names, mainly Nimue, Niniane, Vivienne and Vivien. (The last two are a different character in newer retellings of the legend.)
Nimue is the only character in the game who isn't like her counterpart in terms of personality.
Nimue is the only character whose outfit color doesn't match her counterpart's.
During a conversation with her, Sonic seems to flirt with Nimue, and she seems noticeably startled.
