From Halopedia, the Halo wiki

Gilgamesh is a human colony world. It is a lawless world, mainly controlled by mobsters and Insurrectionists, and is relatively obscure as a result. The planet has a large and refined brothel on its surface.[1]

In 2552, the AI construct Cortana wired a transfer of funds to the Gilgamesh brothel, masquerading as Colonel James Ackerson. This was her form of payback for his heavy-handed attempt to make sure that Dr. Halsey's MJOLNIR AI-Spartan integration test failed. Since the brothel would send a confirmation of this action, she knew that this action would make his wife quite mad and in turn disrupt his life.[2]

Gilgamesh apparently still existed during the Battle of Earth, as evidenced by active transports from the colony to the Quito Space Tether.[3]


Gilgamesh was a Sumerian king that ruled Mesopotamia (specifically Assyria) circa 2650 BC. He was the Sumerian equivalent to Hercules, as he was considered a demigod of superhuman strength.
