At the base of the Asama mountains, lied a small village. The flames continued burn everything. It was only a matter of time before everything was burned down. By the time the Kazama ninja had arrived, the flames had already covered the entire village. And from within the flames, echoes could be heard roaring to the heavens. "The time to test our spell to seal demons have come. Do not let your guard down!" The ninja's listen to the orders of the leaders of the group. Each ninja carefully searches through the burning village. Not a single survivor could be found. Every villager was burned to death and were already turning into ashes. "Guooooooooohhhhhh!!!"

  The ninja's could only think that they had been caught off guard. They had ignored keeping their guard from the skies. A ball of flames roared through the sky. The ninja's were covered in flames, and a human figure came down from the sky. The earth rumbled as it landed. The houses in that area crumbled from the shockwave. "This is the demon that scorched the earth. Do not fear it! We will show our power to it!" The Kazama ninja's, without fear, started the spell of sealing demons. Butthe demon, whose name was Enja, quickly shakes the air violently.

  "What power! But we must stop this demon! We cannot allow it to reach the Hinowa country! In the name of the Kazama clan!" But that was where it ended. Enja glowed brightly. The next instant, everyone was covered in flames. Every ninja died without even realizing it. It was like a small volcano exploded. Enja looks to the sky and flies off. Enja plans to reunite with his old friend Suija and steal the spell of Jinma-Itai from Kuraki-sumeragi.

Enja is not the same person as Kazuki. Enja is a demon who took over a random ninja of the Kazama clan. Eventually, he is sealed in Kazuki's weapon. He is said to be Kazuki's father.

Kazuki is an awesome design and definitely suited the vibe of Samurai Shodown 4.... but did they really have to "clone" him? >:/ Enja's & Kazuki's moves are practically the same animations; Enja just doesn't use a blade like Kazuki. For obvious reasons, Enja seems like a blatantly "cheap" sprite clone by nature. In some ways he's a cool design, but he's way too Dragonball Z for Samurai Shodown... indeed, Enja is basically Super Saiyan Kazuki. In fairness, I suppose he's not the worst sprite clone in existence. Overlooking his "copy & paste" moveset, Enja is a pretty intense design. His character artwork is certainly badass.
