Quoth the Girtablullû:

“I swear by all the Yazata, if you compare your skills to mine again, I will end you. I am the strongest spear-thrower player in all the worlds, and if you say other-wise, it would be my pleasure to prove it by lodging this spear in your thick skull.”

Kith Excerpt:

Detailed in both the Enûma Elish and the Epic of Gilgamesh, the Girtablullû are the fiercest of the Apkallu (Persian Fae). They were favored by the Persian Gods and Tiamat -the Drowned Queen favored their ferocity in battle. Originally meant to serve as her soldiers, scouts, or even sentries (akin to the Apsasu’s role), this all-female Khânevâde (Kith) is now relegated to acting as little more than thugs. At one time they could be reasoned with, even counted on to as allies if proper protocol was to be met. Now however, their venomous nature is their only defining trait.

What has transpired over the years is lost to antiquity (but the Abgal are curious to find out) and the remnants of this once powerful Girtablullû Khânevâde ply their trade in lonesome and violent introspection. This enables them to find a niche however, in the newer role of assassins and brigands.

The Apkallu are an enlightened family of Persian-Fae, blessed by the Gods with arts, sciences, and kind dispositions. Dirty-work isn’t something that many of them are fond of, and even the Humawa Tribe feels little joy in being a professional leg-breaker. The Girtablullû, however, not only succeed in this profession, they enjoy it. Their jealous natures and anger towards an unfair world is fulfilled with finding voice in violence and solace in their intimidation.
