Tammuz is a member of an extra-dimensional race of beings who were worshipped as gods by the Ancient Mesopotamians. On Earth, he powered a mytic relic known as the Heart of Tammuz. When Conan and his friends brought the Heart of Tammuz side by side with the Hand of Nergal, the gigantic figure of intolerable light, dimly manlike in configuration, appeared from the magical amulet and began fighting his counterpart. After his vengeful embrace of all-pervading brightness dissolved Nergal, Tammuz also consumed the senseless, motionless form of Munthassem Khan before leaving.[2]
