Swimmer also goes by the name  Lady of the lake, Vivian, Nimue or many other names for that matter. She is a part of King Arthur’s legend. The story tells of Merlin the wizard, who falls for her. She promises to return his love only if Merlin teaches her his magic, which he does despite the danger. Ultimately she learns all she can and traps Merlin in the trunk of a tree.

I started out drawing her with black hair and olive skin, but finally decided she would do better with  a supernatural, eerie  complexion.
