Saga of the Old City
Priestess of the Black Lizardfolk Clan
Second to Ssorgess, Essuri did not agree with his aggressive strategy nor his targetting of Gilgamesh with a bounty (Episodes 102 and 103). She was unable to prevent him from doing as he wished and eventually was imprisoned for apposing their alliance with the black dragon Vaxlathan. After Ssorgess sent out his raiding party (prior to Episode 108), Essuri was sprung from the dungeons by her folk and waited in hope that the companions would arrive to solve the Ssorgess problem. She talked to Gilgamesh and convinced him of her sincerity (Episode 108), rushing off with Ssorgess’ head and preventing the raiders from attacking Mari. She is now the leader of the clan and negotiated with King Gulkishar for a peace treaty and full diplomatic relations (Episodes 109 and 110).
