Morgan le Fay was the ancient noble lady at Hautdesert castle. She was important because she was actually Arthur's half-sister, and she desired to destroy his kingdom. Morgan was also responsible for enchanting the Green Knight and setting him upon his course to issue the initial challenge at Arthur's court. Her intent was to test the knights' honor.
