Historical Background

In Sumerian mythology, Imdugud was a lion-headed eagle who was the doorkeeper to Enki's bath. Imdugud was considered the personification of the Southern Wind, the winds which brought rains and storms to Mesopotamia. It is said thunder was the sound of its roar. In Babylonian mythology, Imdugud was known as Anzu, a demonic bird with an eagle's body, but a lion's head and claws. Anzu's beak could cut through almost anything and its feathers were said to be as impenetrable as '11 coats of mail'. While appointed by Ellil to guard his bath chamber, it stole the Tablets of Destiny, an artifact which allows anything spoken to become manifest in reality, while Ellil bathes. Nonetheless, Anzu managed to be defeated. The story of the Babylonian Anzu is not repeated in Sumerian tales (in other words, though they were considered analogous, they had two very different stories). Imdugud was also a Chaldean rain god. Imdugud means "heavy rain" in Sumerian. It seems Square-Enix decided to make Imdugud the name of a creature that is inverse to the mythology (an eagle-headed lion).
