Capable/Nux is the het pairing of Capable, one of the women escaping from tyrant Immortan Joe, and Nux, a War Boy in Joe's army/cult in the 2015 movie Mad Max: Fury Road. In the film, they forge a close relationship.
Relationship in canon
Nux originally is part of the war party that is hunting down the rig carrying Capable and her sister-wives. Although he initially attempts to stop them and return them to Joe, Capable convinces him to switch sides, and he becomes a loyal ally. As their journey comes to an end, Nux sacrifices himself to give Capable and the other women a chance to escape their enemies.
Nicholas Hoult, who plays Nux, explains his character and his relationship with Capable: "Nux is at the point where he's lost everything... It literally couldn't get any worse for him. And then he meets Capable. She looks after him and makes him realize that the things he was trying to die for and believing in weren't necessarily all there is in the world. Nux has never had that sort of affection from anyone. And he falls head over heels in love with her instantly."
Nux: Three times the gates were open to me.
Capable: What gates?Capable: I'd say it was your manifest destiny not to.
Nux: I was awaited in Valhalla. They were calling my name. I should be walking with the Immortan. Feasting with the heroes of all time.
