Answers
Gilgamesh is a king who was born of a goddess and a mortal king. Gilgamesh likes to show off his strength and power, so he often challenges the men of his kingdom to fights. This often leads to the death of these men, leaving the people wishing he could find someone else to fight. This is why they ask the gods to create a rival for Gilgamesh.
