(utukku)
A type of Babylonian Demon who can be either good or evil. A group of evil ones are known as the Seven; they are offspring of the sky god, An, and the Earth goddess, Ki, and they act as assistants to the underworld god, Nergal. In Akkadian lore, the utukku are servants of the underworld, whose task is to fetch the sacrificial offerings made by humans, especially the Blood, liver, and organs of animals. The evil utukku are the ekimmu and the good ones are the shedu.
