In Tablet II of the Epic of Gilgamesh, Gilgamesh and Enkidu set out to the Cedar Forest to slay Humbaba. Forging ahead on his own, Gilgamesh finds the ogre and tricks him into giving up his power by offering his sisters as concubines. Captured by Gilgamesh, Humbaba is taken back to Enkidu, begging for his life. Enkidu convinces his friend to ignore the monster's pleas for mercy, and Humbaba is decapitated by the heroes while attempting to escape.
