First and foremost, it was a sense of fairness that led to Ninlil’s decision to look for a leading role in the Sumerian pantheon. She had been molested and saw everything Enlil gave her as compensation for the trauma she had gone through. This sense of justice and fairness is the most dominant character trait Ninlil bestows on you. Apart from that you have a lot of charm, sensitivity and discretion. Sometimes you love to play the devil’s advocate and weigh up situations before you come to a decision.
Ninlil never had any big plans. She was a normal girl living in Dilmun – until Enlil came into her life and took advantage of her. Nine months later, she gave birth to the moon god Nanna and was promoted to the rank of a Goddess. At that point she made up her mind about one thing: She wanted to be the benevolent mother goddess in a pantheon ruled by her husband. And she was successful. To punish his son for having had intercourse with a human being, An sent Enlil to the underworld. Ninlil followed him and Enlil met her in disguise several times, fathering his other children. He turned up as a gatekeeper and another time as a boatsman. Sounds like Zeus and his lovers? Well, this couple was some three thousand years before their Greek counterparts - you can gather who's the original and who's the fake, can't you?
It is no wonder that after this enormous achievement, she became a little self-indulgent and lazy. Yet her survival instincts are still intact, and she stands by her husband when times get really tough. She has a sharp mind and can see both sides of a coin. Her analytical brain is often invaluable to get Enlil out of the mess he has talked himself into.
