Hmm...now I'm trying to invision Rand as a Nym (since that's basically what the Green Knight was, albeit a slightly more human looking one...). Of course The Green Knight also tested Gawain not just with the axe, but also with the gift of his wife. Maybe instead of Morgawse getting it on with her brother (Arthur), we'll instead have Gawyn trying to get it on with his sister.
