The Ancient Gods of Sumer and Babylon...

SHUTU

Babylonian Wind God

Rather touchy God of Winds and River Breezes

Apparently he’s as temperamental as most other Wind Gods and is likely to blow you off-course if you don’t treat him with respect.

Adapa was so irritated by Shutu whizzing around his head like an enormous windy fly that he pulled his wings off. Which must have been somewhat embarrassing.

Of course, being a God, Shutu grew them back almost instantly. And then instigated a lawsuit for damages.
