Ena is an androgynous shikabane from the Shichisei who is obsessed with beauty. His curse allows him to switch from one corpse to another, as long as they are nearby. He also fights with a metal ball that can grind things into dust. Akasha once commented on Ena being a theatrical performer.

He was once a sculptor who is obsessed with capturing true beauty and, initially not having any idea of what true beauty is, had a young boy being his model in hope of finding inspirations. One day, he found the boy having injured himself, thus blemishing his source of inspirations. Ironically, it's when the boy resisted his fit of rage that inspirations dawned on him- he strangled the boy to death and came to realize that true beauty and the zenith of life is the moment past which life is surely being overtaken by death, and any struggle against death becomes futile. Hoping to recreate that moment, he went into hiding and, using the boy's corpse, he created a display of ritual strangulation. He had overworked himself to death upon completion of the display, but his obsession with creating even more of this true beauty possessed the boy's corpse. In this state of undeath he walked the earth, kidnapping and murdering young boys and girls along the way to act on his obsession. By the time of his first encounter with Hokuto, his obsession has become so strong that he prioritizes it over his self-preservation, morphing into his nature and causing Hazama to accept him into the Shichisei. During the massacre of Hoshimura Clan, he directly participated in Makina's mortal death for the same reason.

As a shikabane, because his obsession is foreign to his current body, he is capable of regenerating from even destruction of his brain.

In the anime adaptation, Ena was responsible for killing Keisei when he possessed Ouri and stabbed him. In episode 6 of season two, he was later killed by Makina when she manage to break his spinning metal ball which is the source of his curse. This is due to Makina's new constant regeneration by Ouri's rune. Before Makina finishes her final blow, Ena's flashback would reveal that he committed suicide because he did not have true beauty and would transplant different corpses to his body.
