First Noted In – Season 1 Episode 1 “Nimue”

Brief Introduction

Despite being born amongst the Fey, people who worship Gods unlike other humans and have neighbors with wings, amongst other things, Nimue has lived an isolated life. This is mainly due to, when she was 5, being attacked by a demon and surviving the attack. However, with her survival came the mark of a demon. Which, when combined with her inherited powers, which allows her to tap into nature, it led to her being called a witch.
