049 Nimue

A wise sage who commands ancient magic.
A master of dark magic who is referred to as a mountain hermit. As a user of the ancient arts, as well as a person with a full understanding of ancient texts, she knows the details of “The Scouring.” She wished to travel with Roy to satiate her curiosity regarding Bern’s dragons. She attempts to get her grandson and successor Hugh to learn the ancient arts, but he instead pursues anima magic. Even when uninterested, she finds her grandson to be adorable.

After she joined Roy’s party, Nimue appeared to be instrumental in defeating dragons –but a mystery remained.
Before the Dark Dragon, she claimed “this is what I have been searching for,” and showed Fa a gemstone, with the real motives behind it unclear. Perhaps Nimue was thinking of making the power of the dragon her own. If that were the case, then Fa’s sleeping –face which caused Nimue to give up her plan –saved the world from a new Queen of Darkness.

 ロイの部隊に参加して後、ニイメは竜を倒すために尽力したように見えるが、謎も残る。
 魔竜を前に「私が求めていたものはこれだ」と叫んだこと、またファに宝玉を見せて何かをしようとしたことの真意は何であろうか。もしかしたら、ニイメは竜の力を我が物にしようと思っていたのかもしれない。それが事実であるとするなら、ニイメを重いとどまらせたファのあどけない寝顔、新しい闇の女王の恐怖から世界を救ったということになる。
