Asakku are demons from Mesopotamian mythology.

City of the Plague God

Two asakku appear shortly before Nergal attacks Mo's. Over a dozen assuka attend the attack on Ishtar's House.

Description

Asakku are demons who all seem to work for Nergal. They also all seem to resemble an animal (example: Sidana is like a rat). They all have to do with disease. Their names also are not names, but curses. They can also be killed.
