Enkidu was an ancient Gangrel methuselah and member of the Red List. He preserved animals threatened by extinction by ghouling them and warding them within his own body by order of the Gangrel Antediluvian herself.
Born in the height of Sumerian culture in a small village near Ur, Enkidu was plagued with dreams from a ziggurat that was erected in the honor of the moon by the Gangrel Antediluvian. Eventually, these dreams goaded him into the city, forcing him to live among humans he despised in their decadence. He came to hate his own kind and found only solace among the animals, despite many being sacrificed to Sumer's various gods, a fact that filled him with even more resentment against his species.
Eventually, the dreams became so intense and threatening that he ventured to the temple himself in order to challenge the being that sent this dreams. Instead, he was inducted into Ennoia's brood and received the Embrace. His fellows revealed that his sire struggled to keep the ancient ghoul known as the Typhonian Beast, a creature created by Set with his dark magics, under her control with Animalism, and sealed it within her own body. The Antediluvian would not kill it, for it was the last of its species. Enkidu had been chosen to be her successor, also containing other rare species within his own body.
He was trained for a century until the Setites attacked Ur in order to obtain the Typhonian Beast. The battle between both clans was vicious and bloody, and despite a ferocious fight, Enkidu was wounded and had to escape from the burning city. In the following centuries, he shunned civilization, hunting Kindred and mortals, alike without remorse, harboring a seething hatred against both of them. He still struggles to contain the urges of the Typhonian Animal within him. Over the course of ages he turned into a gigantic, shapeshifting, bestial creature, known as the Noah. He is especially adept avoiding Garou, but his frequent attacks against other vampires have earned him the place on the Red List, although he does not care.
Enkidu has learned with the wisdom of spirits of the wilderness that only by holding onto his humanity could he continue to contain the Typhonian Beast – and that the Beast would never cease its struggle to escape. In an effort to maintain his morality, the ancient Gangrel has splintered part of his personality into another form, a female called Sabrina. Thus, he can transform himself into this form and maintain a mental grasp on human concepts (and eventually lure out Followers of Set in order to destroy them).
In the mid-2000s, Enkidu was sighted near a small clearing near Prague. A specialized team, made of several Alastors, ghouls, and the best fighters that the Warlord of the Camarilla could spend, attacked him and battled him dusk till dawn. In the end, no one actually saw the methuselah collapse, but the Alastors killed its ghouled animal companions, seemingly slaying Enkidu along with them. After the incident, the methuselah's name was taken from the Red List and he was officially declared to have met Final Death.
- According to Clanbook: Toreador Revised, Ennoia was a male figure and, curiously, used the name "Enkidu" during the nights it spent in the Sumerian empire. In this tale, he Embraced Gilgamesh before the Toreador Antediluvian could do it.
- The trickster Nissiku was a creature of Uruk who knew "Enkidu, the wild man".
