MESOPOTAMIAN MYTHOLOGY

The Ancient Gods of Sumer and Babylon...

ENLIL

Mesopotamian Storm God

Also known as ELLIL

Akkadian Storm God

Doesn’t care much for humans and snots with fury if disturbed. (Editor’s note: I think that should be ‘snorts with fury’. At least, I hope so. Otherwise it doesn’t bear thinking about.)

ENLIL keeps the Tablets of Destiny (ME), which give him absolute power over everything and help ward off headaches.
