In some versions, Gawain is a knight to Arthur but also his nephew, according to Encyclopedia Britannica.
Speaking to The Los Angeles Times, co-creator Miller said of Cursed’s take on Arthurian legend: “Nimue is the key to it all.
“She’s the thread to which we’re exposed to everything about the mythos that we associate with Camelot and Arthur and all the other aspects.”
While Wheeler explained: “That image of this woman’s arm reaching out of the water and offering the sword to Arthur, it evokes all of these interesting questions.
“Who was she? What is her relationship to Arthur? Why does she have the sword? And as we began to work backwards from there this idea that a woman held the Sword of Power before Arthur felt like a story worth telling.”
