The Epic of Gilgamesh

How would you characterize the goddess Ishtar? What is she like? Do you think she cares for the people of Uruk? Why or why not?

I need help.

Ishtar, the goddess of love and war. She is kind of moody but then she is a goddess. Her devastating wrath leads to all kinds of God and mortal shenanigans. There is a clash between Enkidu and Gilgamesh, which in turn leads to Enkidu getting the death penalty from the gods, sending Gilgamesh off on his failed quest for immortality.
