Enki was a god in the Sumerian mythology, later known as Ea. The main temple to Enki was in Eridu. His symbols included a goat and a fish, which later combined into a single beast, the Capricorn, which became one of the signs of the zodiac.
Male presence, god of water and the creation. He had sexual relations with his female offspring during various generations.
According to Sumerian mythology, the 'physical' god-being Lord Enki (as opposed to the personified archetype) was a propenent of allowing humanity survive the Flood that caused the Great Collapse in 12,000 BCE. After Enlil, Anu and the rest of the apparent Council of Heaven decided that Man would total annihilation and rebirth, he covertly rescued the human man Ziusudra by either instructing him to build some kind of an ark for his family, or by bringing him into the heavens in a magic boat. This is apparently the source for the Noah's Ark myth, though the Ziusudra myth in itself may be rooted in yet older myths dating back as far as 11,000 BCE (but there is no way of proving it at present, due to the apparent nonexistence of writing during the time that these myths presumably existed--they are generally reverse-engineered to some degree from the oral traditions of indigenous peoples).
Enki was considered a god of life and replenishment, and was often depicted with streams of water emanating from his shoulders. Alongside him were trees symbolising the male and female aspects of nature, each holding the male and female aspects of the 'Life Essence', which he, as apparent alchemist of the gods, would masterfully mix to create several beings that would live upon the face of the earth.
Namely, he created a being called LU.LU. by mixing the Life Essence of animals with the Life Essence of the gods. This LU.LU. (which means mixed), would go on to receive more god-like attributes as a result of Enki's creator-ambitions, and subsequently humans were created.
In the science fiction book "Snow Crash", by Neal Stephenson, he is portrayed as a proto-hacker.
