"Arrogant" is the first word anyone would use to describe Gilgamesh. Never would he miss a chance to tell you how much better he is then you and many would complain if it wasn't so... justified. Pride is a trait that can rival his arrogance and there is no man alive who has insulted him in any way. While it's hard to see, there is also a relaxed side to Gilgamesh. It comes out in his free time or when he is drinking with his "friends" (there is no such word for him anymore he had one true friend in life, the rest are "mongrels" that have the great privilege to be near him). At first glance he may not seem like a greedy person, but truth is the he believes that all the belongings in the world (including the world) are already his and that he is just allowing everyone to use his possessions. Yet touching any of his personal artifacts or things (or people) that are dear to him will set him in a rage that has not been seen before. That anger can't be rivaled by anything else and he will not stop till the object of his hate isn't completely destroyed. He is not a forgiving man, earn his scorn once and he will not forget nor forgive till the end of time. His narcism knows no boundaries and even looking at him without permission will be answered with a death threat. He even has the habit to stand on higher ground, so that he can show everyone how much better he is than them. Often he will resort to sarcastic and cynical comments, mocking others.
Despite all his negative attributes The King of Heroes can be grateful. While it might not seem much, in his eyes even a simple slave from his time, has earned himself a right to live with his honest work. But in the modern world that has changed according to him, humans became lazy and do not appreciate their life. It's something that makes him look at them as lower beings and it makes him think that they did not deserve a King such as him. Love is a feeling Gilgamesh can express as well. Too bad that in his case it is not something positive, as it does not matter for the great King if the person that has earned his love is happy with it or not. If necessary he will take said person by force. Rare are the cases in which Gilgamesh will see someone as his equal, but if he does, then that person has earned himself the greatest act of showing respect that is possible to get from Gilgamesh. That person won't be looked down upon and will not be mocked or insulted by Gilgamesh, even more so, he won't play games with his equal and will treat them as a real threat and enemy. His main motto for life seems to be "Be who you are!". He believes that it's right to stay true to oneself even if other might think bad of it. He also thinks that everyone should do what they like and center their life around their own happiness even if it may be bad for other people. Beyond all of this Gilgamesh also has many hidden depths, those which are revealed in the rarest of rarest of situations. He can show sympathy for other being, sorrow and deep understanding. There was a time when he discarded all of his bad traits and lived his life to make the lives of those around him better, but those day now belong to the past.
Never did he doubt himself, no matter what he did and he now he lives his life just for his own pleasure.
Powers and Abilities
Even during his lifetime Gilgamesh had strength and speed beyond any mortal man. But after he had transcended to heaven and granted absolute favor by the Gods, his powers have grown. He is able to shake mountains with his bare fist, his speed leaves lightning pale in comparison , his accuracy with projectiles is unmatched and never would he miss his mark, his body is no longer a body of a fragile human, now his flash may rip and his bones may brake, but they will always return to their original state. His armor can take blows which would make cities crumble and his weapons have no match in this world. His exsistance is so absolute that it cannot be contested, his mind cannot be invaded and his soul can't be tainted by anything. Any game of luck would end in his favor and never would he lose money. Gilgamesh had also been granted a special artifact in form of a key. It is the key to his treasury, where he keeps all the weapons, shields and items from legends as well as their prototypes. He gave it the name "Gate of Babylon".
Gate of Babylon
The key lost it's material form a long time ago, now it's represented by a thought, which allows Gilgamesh to open his vault. It opens a portal which gives Gilgamesh access to anything he desires. Any kind of weapon, armor, amulet, ring or any item in the history of the world. Every weapon is legendary in it's own right and has special effects of it's own. He can chose the shoot the weapons directly from the gate or take them out to use them with his own skill. He is able to fire dozens or even up to hundreds of weapons at once. All of them would return to the vault with just a thought of his. Mirrors that reflect attacks, tinkers that inform him about his enemies weaknesses, rings that read minds, amulets that tell the future, axes that split mountains, spears that always pierce the heart, swords that never break, daggers that freeze space and time itself, blades that curse the enemy, scythes that slay immortals, ancient spaceships, chains that can bind gods... the list is endless. And even if an opponent happened to haven a weapon same as Gilgamesh, the Kings model would always win. But besides all his battle equipment, Gate of Babylon holds other possessions as well. Heavenly wine, furniture, clothes, even servants that remain loyal to their King even in death.
Twin Swords of Uruk
A pair of golden swords, slightly curved. They are supposedly not from the Gate but were used by Gilgamesh in the battles during his life. They are his first pick if he ever had to fight his enemy close up (not that he lacks the skill, he just fears that he might touch a filthy mongrel).
The swords at first glance don't seem to have any special effect of their own, other than being absurdly sharp blades, but in truth they serve another purpose. They can be combined by the hilts and a string of light will materialize between the tips of the blades to form a bow. After a arrow (also made out of the same light) is fired, it will disappear after it hits something. That arrow is just used as a signal, upon activation a star will fall from the sky and disperse above the target. Rain will fall for the next 7 days and flood the entire planet. This weapon was based on Utanpisthim's flood, an event from Gilgamesh's time.
Vimana is a flying contraption passed from Babylon to India and recorded in the two epic sagas, Ramayana and Mahabharata, that is owned by Gilgamesh and contained within the Gate of Babylon. It's fueled by mercury and solar-powered by rutilated quartz crystals, that surpasses the laws of physics by traveling at the speed of thought and it has a pilot throne. Gilgamesh can freely use the Gate of Babylon to launch projectiles while piloting the vessel, and he can also summon shields to block midair projectiles. Within the myths of ancient India, it was apparently loaded with a variety of weapons ranging from ancient machine guns to ancient nuclear warheads, which have been collected and stored within Gilgamesh's treasury.
Ea - Sword of Rapture
Gilgamesh's most powerful weapon. It is a drill-sword composed by multiple free turning segments. It's head can be used as a weapon, to pierce any armor, but it's rare for Gilgamesh to use it in such a way. It's true use lies in it's activation, when the segments start to spin in different directions. The blast following, will rip apart time and space and create a hole in reality. It reveals the "truth" the world as it was before the creation, thus allowing nothing to exsist. It returns anyone or anything to it's original form, which is nothingness. Gilgamesh can "regulate" the power, to modify the range. As the sword that "split apart heaven and earth" it has the power to end all life on the planet or it might even consume the whole planet if Gilgamesh ever used it at it's most powerful output.
