Enkidu is a member of Amnesia who was scouted by Hilda. His real name is Gaien Enkido. Enkidu comes from a family which practices the ancient martial arts. He was very skilled and many feared him as the infamous Maneater. As he started to run out of human opponents to fight, Enkidu decided to look for paranormal opponents.

He was looking for a rumored strongest In-Birth and in order to fight him, Enkidu got bitten by a Void on purpose. After becoming an In-Birth, Enkidu discovered that his powers as an In-Birth were very faint. This was because the wound he received from that Void was small. He keeps fighting under the Night using nothing but his martial arts. Hilda saw promise in him and scouted him to join Amnesia.

Enkidu participates in Amnesia's operations for the first time during their conflict with the Demon Society, about a six months before the actual story. Afterwards, during their victory party Chaos takes time with Enkidu and asks him to tell about himself. Enkidu tells that he once had a Master which he really respected. However, that master passed away because of an sudden illness. Enkidu describes that he felt powerless against it all, and that inspired him to train even harder.

Chaos asks where does his name "Enkidu" come from. There are different interpretations about what the Enkidu in myth was... Some say he was a man who cut away the sinners, while the others think he was trying to cut away his own sins... Enkidu answers that he chose that name because of the both meanings. He says that it's difficult to put into words why exactly he fights, but he still intends to continue pursuing the strong ones to further increase his own strength.

Enkidu is Geese Howard's son from the future. Considering the many sword-users and other bizarre character designs of Under Night In-Birth, it's cool to see a traditional-style martial artist mix things up on the roster. Cool animations, a simple / yet cool visual design... sometimes you don't need much else to impress me as a fighting game character.
