evil storm god represented as a black bird
A lesser divinity of Akkadian mythology, and the son of the bird goddess Siris.
Zu is a German preposition that means "to" or "at" in English. It indicates a direction or location towards which someone or something is moving or directed to.
Zu, also known as Anzu and Imdugud, in Sumerian, is a lesser divinity of Akkadian mythology, and the son of the bird goddess Siris. He was conceived by the pure waters of the Apsu and the wide Earth. Both Zu and Siris are seen as massive birds who can breathe fire and water, although Zu is alternately seen as a lion-headed eagle. Anzu was a servant of the chief sky god Enlil, guard of the throne in Enlil's sanctuary, from whom Anzu stole the Tablet of Destinies, so hoping to determine the fate of all things. In one version of the legend, the gods sent Lugalbanda to retrieve the tablets, who in turn, killed Anzu. In another, Ea and Belet-Ili conceived Ninurta for the purpose of retrieving the tablets. In a third legend, found in The Hymn of Ashurbanipal, Marduk is said to have killed Anzu.
