A long time ago in a city state in Mesopotamia there was a king named Gilgamesh and he was mean to his people. Gilgamesh was also 2/3 god and 1/3 human
The sky god created a person who rivaled the strength of Gilgamesh named Enkidu
Hunters found Enkidu in the wild and told the king Gilgamesh. Gilgamesh fought Enkidu and they became friends after their fight.
Gilgamesh and Enkidu traveled to the ceder forest to slay the demon Humbaba. Gilgamesh almost lost but he prayed to the sun god and defeated Humbaba.
They both came back with a heroes welcome and the god Ishtar confessed her love to Gilgamesh but Gilgamesh teased her and refused her love. Ishtar sent the bull of heaven to destroy Gilgamesh but he teamed up with Enkidu and defeated the bull. Enkidu was killed by the gods for killing the bull of heaven .
Gilgamesh soon realized he would die too, so he looked for immortality. He found the immortal couple and they told him about the secret immortal plant. While Gilgamesh was sailing back home with the plant on a boat, then a snake took the plant Gilgamesh realized the only way he could be immortal was if he left behind his civilization (which he did)
