The story opens with Gilgamesh. Gilgamesh is the first, and the gayest epic hero ever. This Gilgamesh is simply named after the guy. In Uruk, the name Gilgamesh is pretty popular. Its sorta how we name a lot of people Jesus. In any case, Gilgamesh is a powerful mage, as was his father before him. One night, his magic went awry.
