  • Please help us!
  • His people were scared of him and they had to pray to the sky god, Anu. 
  • Anu decided to answer their prayers and asked the goddess Aruru to make a man who was a strong Gilgamesh. They named him Enkidu.
  • A hunter managed to see Enkidu at a waterhole three days in a row. The hunter was scared and decided to run home to tell his father. His father told him to tell Gilgamesh.
  • Please help me King Gilgamesh! I've spotted a beast-like man in the forest.
  • Use this woman as bait to capture this man.
  • The hunter ran off to tell King Gilgamesh of the man.
