Historical Background

In Mesopotamian mythology, Girtablulu (also spelled Girtablilu, Gaqrabuamelu) were scorpion-men who guarded the gates of Irkalla, the underworld as well as the guardians of the gates of the mountains (they would open the gates to let the sun god Shamash rise into the sky and then later descend back into the underworld). They were giants with the upper half of a human and the lower half of a scorpion. They were considered deadly warriors who could fight with bows & arrows as well as their stinger. Their glance could cause death and their mere presence could induce terror. They were originally created by Tiamat in her war against the gods, but some survived and found work elsewhere. One Girtablulu appeared in the Epic of Gilgamesh, assisting Gilgamesh on his quest for immortality. They are more commonly called "Scorpion Men" in English.
