Ena is a quite smart and whimsical girl who sometimes acts as a cat.
She loves playing video games and she doesn't really have any other motivation for work or ambitions. She also likes to mess with Shinya Yukimura or make fun of Kosuke Inukai, just to entertain her or bring chaos.
Ena was sleeping on the couch from playing video games all night. As she woke up, she realized she fell asleep during a quest again and her character had died. As she witnessed Shinya Yukimura and Ayame Himuro working on their love experiment and Shinya was touching Ayame's hair, she commented they are doing strange things, but realized it was the love experiment they mentioned earlier. While listening to them and keep playing, she told them they need to do control experiment with Shinya touching more people's heads. And to stir things further, she wanted to see if Shinya will get increased heart rate from all women or just from Ayame, even though she already knew he would get nervous and will definitely get his heart rate increased from all. As that was the result and she laughed, she explained that people can get their heart increased from variety of situations, not just love. Ayame was still frustrated with Shinya for getting excited around other girls, but Ena calmly went to sleep back on the couch.
