KINGU
Also known as QINGU

Dragon-God consort of [TIAMAT] before it all went horribly wrong.

As a token of her love she gave him the Tablets Of Destiny (ME) for safekeeping. He decided to wear them as a fashion accessory. They looked really cool and also gave him holy power, magnificence and top universal status. It was like having a Babylonian iPod.

Unfortunately for him, the boost he received from wearing the ME Tablets as a breastplate made a lot of people jealous. Particularly since they'd been stolen in the first place.

KINGU was killed by ANU, and her body recycled to form universal bonus tracks and extra bits. One of the extras was the human race, formed from her blood. Sometimes dragons have a really tough time.

To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites.

Visitors often email us asking about Kingu statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Kingu. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
