Lancer's True Name is Enkidu (エルキドゥ, Erukidu?), the only friend of Gilgamesh. Born from a clod of earth, Enkidu was clay shaped by hands of the Gods, their father the king of gods, Anu, and their mother the goddess of creation, Aruru. It was neither male nor female, but merely a monster made of mud that descended onto the earth and awoke in the wilderness. It opened its eyelids in response to a voice calling to it from afar, taking in the sight of the expanses of land and sky and the towering city in the distance. The voice was unknown to Enkidu, but it was neither the maternal hand nor the paternal rebuke.
