Like your patron god you are unconventional, strong and intelligent. You love to analyze and get to the bottom of things, ruthlessly uncovering the injustices of life and the weaknesses of others. Without worrying about the risks you take, you carve out your individual way and take one challenge after the other with true fighting spirit.
Since she was abducted to Irkalla to become queen of the underworld, she has been nursing a grudge against most of the gods, suspecting them of plotting against her. Her sense of leadership helped her build a position of absolute power in her realm - a power that cannot be called into question by any other god, not even her husband Nergal.
How the marriage between Nergal and Ereshkigal exactly came about is still one of the big unknown stories. What is known is that Nergal invited the goddess of the underworld to a divine banquet. Unable to leave the underworld herself, she sent a minor god as her representative. He was received well by all the other guests at the banquet but was completely ignored by the host. Therefore, Nergal was banished to the Underworld and shortly afterwards news spread that Ereshkigal and Nergal were married. Are the two of them united by passionate love or did Nergal succeed where Inanna failed and manage to get the rule over Irkalla, accepting marriage to Ereshkigal as the price to be paid?
In any case there must be a strong bond between them, as Nergal has earned her trust and is the only one who can cope with her frequent bad temper with astonishing patience and understanding. And by leaving Irkalla, her mood did not improve; on the contrary, she is desperately homesick for the warmth, the dust and the billions of dead souls she can boss around.
