Some Toreador scholars presented a version of the history of the Cainite society in which Ennoia was a male figure. It is said that after the Deluge, the Antediluvians rose up and slaughtered their sires from the Second Generation. Caine returned from his self imposed exile to curse his offspring for this crime. The Toreador claim that Caine cursed all the Antediluvians, less the Arikel, who remained utterly beautiful.
Supposedly, Caine believed that she was not involved in the murder of his childer. His mercy on Toreador outraged all of her Kindred sibling, in particular, Ennoia who had been cursed as "the Beast". Thus, Ennoia set out to kill the Toreador Antediluvian, tracking her all the way to Sumer.
There, Ennoia used the name "Enkidu" and Embraced a woman named Ereshkigal to aid his attack against Toreador. Toreador's lover, Tammuz, helped her flee from Ereshkigal, at the cost of his own life. The Toreador Antediluvian fled and proposed the Embrace to King Gilgamesh, but he was already tempted by Ennoia, and chose to side with the Gangrel.
It is said that the Toreador Antediluvian summoned the 'Bull of Heaven to help in her final escape of Sumer. Ennoia decided to stay in Sumer, where "he" established a large brood of Gangrel.
- According to Mesopotamian mythology, Ereshkigal was the goddess of the Irkalla, the land of the dead.
