James (JD) Dittes Gawain also shows up in The Wife of Bath's Tale, as in Green Knight, he strikes the reader as a very human, honest knight, quite willing to admit his flaws, quite open about his corruption. (In Chaucer's tale, Gawain rapes a young woman and is spared by Guinevere so long as he can learn--within a year--what it is that women want.) His frankness with Axel and his effort to foil the Warrior's quest at the end certainly builds upon these earlier stories.
