  • Nice work.
  • Gilgamesh was a cruel and hateful leader of Uruk. The citizens there prayed to their gods that Gilgamesh would stop being mean.
  • Aruru, mother of all gods, created Enkidu as a “double” for Gilgamesh to be nicer to his people. Enkidu was raised by animals and then Ishtar sent a priestess Shamat to the wild to tame him and show love and forgiveness.
  • Enkidu meets Gilgamesh and they had a great wrestling match which ended in a tie. They decided to become good friends and set out on many adventures together.
  • Sorry the way I have been treating you.
