: Re: Gilgamesh. This is too thready for the main page, but someone pointed out the solution to me (in relation to an idiot friend who claimed to be "one-third native american"): Incest.
You've got God A, God B, and Human C. God A has a child with God B (Child AB) ,and a child with Human C (Child AC). Children AB and AC (Half-siblings) have Gilgamesh.
