Ereshkigal - Kur Kigal Irkalla
|The underworld deity from Sumerian mythology.|
The fearsome ruler of the Underworld who freely handling a cage that is much like a spear, at times she impales the enemies, at times locks up their souls and at times generates lightning bolts.
Bearing the professional duty of managing the Underworld from the moment she was born, a goddess who disappeared together with the Age of Gods without ever learning about freedom and the surface.
That figure is not of the Goddess Ereshkigal herself, but a Pseudo-Servant state in which a human soul with a wavelength close to hers was made into a vessel.
Much like a goddess of the Underworld, she says that surveilling humans is her duty but───
｢... I’ll be troubled if they come to the Underworld in great numbers... it is hard to build the cages to imprison their souls after all... I wonder if I can properly offer a comfortable place for them....｣
───just like this, she cannot fully conceal her helpful nature.
Truly, a (red) angel of the underworld.

|Comment||｢I have no interest in the likes of humans. The living are so unpleasant after all. Still, if you really insist, I wouldn’t mind a fellowship that has death as premise, you know?｣|
|In the original texts of Mesopotamian Mythology, she presided over the growth and decomposition of vegetation, employed snakes and dragons, and freely controlled the garula spirits that served as envoys of the Underworld.|
The ｢Mistress of Heavens｣ that was Ishtar had a rivalry with the ｢Mistress of the Underworld｣ that was Ereshkigal.
As far as mythography goes, the goddess of good harvest Ishtar (Innana) was a Great Earth Mother that represented human life, while Ereshkigal was a Terrible Mother that represented human death.
In myths, Ishtar would proceed towards the Underworld only to be killed by Ereshkigal.
Ishtar would be revived afterwards, but while not a single reason was given why Ishtar went to the Underworld and why Ereshkigal felt so much rage, this work treats such relationship as the two sides of the same coin.
Ishtar and Ereshkigal.
These two deities are the same existence, or maybe a divinity from a single god that split into two.

|Something identical to Ishtar’s Noble Phantasm - An Gal Ta Kigal She. However, this is not something fired from the vast skies towards the vast land, but the crushing blow of the Mistress of the Underworld performed from the bottom of the earth towards the adjoining lands.|
While its power is inferior to Ishtar’s Venus Blaster, the essence of this Noble Phantasm is to ｢turn the terrain into a underworld｣. Since Ereshkigal possesses immense authority so long she is in the Underworld, both she and all of those who fight along her will probably be bestowed with a strong protection.
Negates magecraft of D Rank and below.
Due being soaked in the melancholy of the Underworld, death became an everyday occurrence for her and her Magic Resistance ended up dropping considerably.
The crown of a goddess made from a treasure that was supposedly confiscated from Ishtar.
Heaven and Earth, as goddesses that are the two sides of the same coin, she can take the many Authorities that Ishtar possesses as her own, but its effects change into something that is somewhat gloomier (melancholic).
Ereshkigal is a diligent, earnest and somewhat pessimistic goddess. So long there is spare time, she stores her magical power in the spear-cages and employs them during battle.
|A passive & introverted personality.|
A goddess of death and decay who, due possessing to much pride and high intelligence, ended up sacrificing herself for the role of landlady of the Underworld until she became bound hand and foot.
Envious of beautiful things, laughing at ugly things, she ends up killing those she desires so that they do not fall into another’s hands.
... or so Ereshkigal once was, but by fusing with the young girl that became her vessel, she started to objectively perceive those desires of hers as ｢something not good｣, ｢something shameful｣, and her brutality disappeared underneath her deepest levels.
Still, since she is someone impulsive, such aspect of hers comes to surface once she gets angry and she becomes a fearsome, disappointing goddess just like in myths.
Since her behavioral principles is that of Ereshkigal, one can also view this as the young girl that became the vessel having turned more composed, and self-torturing.
While her choice of words is roughly the same as Ishtar’s, her expressions becomes that of an elegant rich lady here and there.
Although she adds ｢~surely｣ to her sentences and acts exaggerated whenever she becomes honest, or falls into a panic, that is because the ｢undecorated portion｣ of her well-mannered self is coming to light. While Ishtar expresses herself like a vigorous woman due being pampered and natural freewheelingness - even though she should have been raised as a sheltered lady - it was Ereshkigal who acquired the speech of a ｢sheltered (ignorant of the ways of the world) rich lady｣ due having performed her professional duties on the Underworld in a overly serious manner.
|Since the age of mythology, Ereshkigal suffered and detested the way how she was unpopular, a social outcast.|
｢Even I wish to live freely like Ishtar. I wish to meet someone who accepts me as the landlady of the Underworld, yet looks at me regardless of the status of landlady of the Underworld｣.
───she even had such maidenly wish.
｢I do not deny being a villain, but even something evil can be helpful to humans. So why is everyone afraid of me?!｣
Despite sulking on the back of her mind in such a manner, upon witnessing the demise that approached the Mesopotamian world, she affiliated herself with the Three Goddess Alliance in order to protect humans in the best way she could and became an enemy of Uruk.
Afterwards, she sunk on the abyss due a number of reasons, but then she affirmed ｢her current self｣ also due a number of reasons and chose the path of cooperating with Chaldea for the sake of restoring the anthropic principle.
The spear she holds in her hands is called Heating Temple Meslamtaea.
