Scilla and Cariddi, the guardians of the sea, together with Jeje, Baal, Mazu, Ningyo, Ran and Tiamath helped Nammu in teaching and educating humans to fully appreciate, respect, love and enjoy all the things that nature had to offer. Despite their efforts, humans turned out to be ungrateful and unkind, greedy, and selfish. They destroyed everything Nammu had created and donated. Their obsession for power led to irreversible damage leaving Nammu disheartened and speechless.
He was unwilling to believe his own creation could be so evil and the excruciating pain pushed him to hide himself in the remote depth of the abysses of the ocean. The eight gods followed him and built layers of rocks between Nammu and the surface of the waters to protect him. They would stay in the abysses until the order was restored and the universe found harmony again.
