Enda was a Celtic teenager, a character from the novelization of Halloween.

Biography

Enda was a fifteen-year-old Celtic boy who lived in North Ireland during the dawn of the Celtic age around the year 500 BC. He was deformed as he had a twitching mouth and shriveled arm, which was the result of the midwives botching his birth. As a result, he was treated unkindly by his father, brother, and uncle, and was the subject of cruel laughter in his village.

At some unknown point, Enda fell in love with the princess Deirdre. When he heard that her father King Gwynwyll was offering her hand in marriage, he asked him if he could be the one to marry her. However, Gwynwyll cruelly laughed at the mere idea, as did Enda's father, brother, and uncle, who said that Deirdre would rather marry their goat. Instead, Deirdre was betrothed to a young warrior named Cullain.

Not giving up hope, Enda believed that if he could get to Deirdre then she would like to marry him. However, when Enda went to meet her at the river as she collected water, she misunderstood his motives, became frightened, and almost fell in. Enda then tried to rescue her, but Deirdre believed that he was trying to rape her and fled, accusing him of trying to do so.

Enda was so heartbroken by the humiliation and the accusation that he was driven to madness. Later on, during Samhain, he viciously attacked Deirdre and Cullain, and brutally murdered them. However, Enda himself was attacked and torn apart by the vengeful tribe in retribution for his crime, leaving only his head and heart. The next day, he was buried and the king had his shaman curse his soul to wander the Earth until the end of time, repeating his brutal crime.

Several centuries later, On Halloween 1963, young Michael Myers was possessed by his ghost and ended up murdering his sister Judith.

Personality

Enda has a very complex personality due to his deformity. He was often subject to laughter and revulsion by members of his tribe, including his own father, brother, and uncle, which caused him great sadness. However, he did have a kinder side as he was passionately in love with Deirdre, and tried to ask her to marry him. However, Deirdre's humiliating accusation left him so distraught and heartbroken that any kindness and love he had was replaced by both hate and vengeance, most of which was reserved for Deirdre, whom he later murdered.

Because of his nature, Enda can be considered a sympathetic character due to being subject to unkind treatment and the rejection by the girl who he loved so much.
