Rheam, The Sorceress; Sandys, Morgan Le Fay
Rheam's sorceress is the classic sorceress, with Halloween colors. Sorcerers and Sorceresses are the most powerful practitioners of magic. Unlike witches, their power cannot be inherited but rather earned and learned. A sorceress will carry a staff to focus maximum energy. While, a witch must invoke the powers of nature or spirits, a sorceress may work with conjurations and bindings, but her power is the command power of Will alone.
Both Rheam's sorceress and Belle Dame Sans Merci raise their left hand, but in the case of the Sorceress, she also grasps the her staff firmly in her right hand. Both hands serve the same master.
Frederick Sandys's Morgan, like the Lady of Shalott, stands before a loom where she weaves destinies. About her are icons of occult magic, an Egyptian frieze and a Hindu bronze.Morgan and Nimue are two of the three queens who escort Arthur to Avalon.
Morgan Le Fay, Morgana, Morgaine, was a powerful enchantress. In earlier chivalric romances by Chrétien de Troye, she was a healer and enchantress. In later medieval stories, she is the dangerous half-sister and arch-enemy of King Arthur. Their father, Uther Pendragon, aided by Merlin kills her father and rapes and marries her mother. Morgan is sent to a nunnery where she takes up the study of magic. She continues her magical studies under Merlin, who she enamors and later scorns, using her powers as a sorceress and temptress to exact revenge on King Arthur and Queen Guinevere, for whom she cherishes a special hatred for banishing Morgan from Camelot.
Morgan's plots against Arthur and Guinevere are repeatedly foiled by his new sorceress advisor, Nimue (Lady of the Lake). As the prime victim of Morgan's affections; Lancelot is her favorite obsession. She alternately attempts to seduce him and other knights with charm, enchantments, drugs, conjuring the devil, and imprisonment. When that fails, she exposes Lancelot as Guinevere's adulterous lover.
For a time, Morgan exiles herself in the forest to study magic, learning more spells than any other woman and gains the ability to transform herself into any animal. When Arthur wanders into her castle while on a hunting trip, he is welcomed warmly and they reconcile. Arthur sees the frescoes of Lancelot painted of his love for Guinevere while imprisoned in Morgan's castle. Arthur is finally convinced of the truth of the rumors about their secret love affair. The ensuing conflict between Arthur and Lancelot brings down the fellowship of the Round Table.
