Siduri Sabitu




2000s BCE


2000s BCE




Children of Gaia



Siduri Sabitu was a Child of Gaia living during the time of ancient Sumeria. When the king, Gilgamesh, was offered the Embrace from the Kindred, she got him to refuse by showing him the most delightful pleasures of life, and thus Gilgamesh not only rejected the Embrace, he organized human resistance against the Kindred. It is said that humans carry their inborn suspicion of vampires due directly to her actions.[1]


In real life, Siduri was the Babylonian goddess of wine, beer, merry-making, and wisdom.  In the Old Babylonian version of the Epic of Gilgamesh, she attempts to dissuade Gilgamesh in his quest for immortality, urging him to be content with the simple pleasures of life (Gilgamesh, whither are you wandering? Life, which you look for, you will never find. For when the gods created man, they let death be his share, and life withheld in their own hands. Gilgamesh, fill your belly. Day and night make merry. Let days be full of joy, dance and make music day and night. And wear fresh clothes. And wash your head and bathe. Look at the child that is holding your hand, and let your wife delight in your embrace. These things alone are the concern of men).[2]
