Early Life

Enoch is born to a family of undertakers and practiced his peculiarity on his father's 'customers'. Enoch is also described as having a cockney accent, which suggests that he is from East London. He brings Bronwyn Bruntley's brother Victor back to life occasionally to chat.


Still works in Miss Peregrine’s basement, working on his army. He hasn’t made much progress and is going mad, all his clay figures can do is hug him to death and play fight with each other. They have grown in size, Enoch now uses the hearts of felines instead of rodents.


On the outside, Enoch puts on a show of being tough but often comes off as cruel and prude. He loves stirring up mischief in the house and usually succeeds. He often adds his own two cents and is very sarcastic and snarky. Enoch also hinted at his great liking for war at different chapters of both Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children and Hollow City. He shows more of his personality in the latter. In the books, he is described as having messy blonde hair and "cadaverous black ringed [blue] eyes".


Jacob: Enoch and Jacob are neutral towards each other. In Hollow City, Enoch acts more critical and hostile, especially towards Jacob. Enoch doesn't have much faith that Jacob be helpful because of his limited knowledge of the world of peculiarity as well as his own. A few times, Enoch also refers to him as "the American", suggesting that he is also judgemental of the country. Enoch sometimes appears as being jealous of him, although this may be because the other children seemed to accept Jacob more than they accept him.
Miss Peregrine: Enoch is a resident of Miss Peregrine's loop. Even though he dislikes the headmistress' strict attitude, he still follows her orders. He cares deeply for her and snaps at the other children for being slow when her life is in danger.
Emma: Enoch appears slightly jealous of Emma, which suggests that he may have a crush on Jacob. Regardless, they seem to have a decent on/off relationship with each other.
Bronwyn : Enoch treats Bronwyn cruelly, as seen when he pretends to consider waking Victor when he actually had no intention of raising him. Even after Bronwyn begs him raise her brother, Enoch swiftly shuts her down and tells her that it'd be cruel to do so, since Victor prefers it where he is.
Victor: Enoch refers to Victor as his friend, despite the fact that he is dead. Because Enoch is able to bring things back from the dead, he has previously been able to talk to Victor and shares things he has told him, such as his liking of where he is in the afterlife.  
Horace: Enoch often calls Horace a coward and is quick to snap at him. Though he seems to bully Horace, Enoch is seen to sleep back-to-back with him in Hollow City and even laughed when Horace mocked him. The two are considered to be friends. 
Hugh: Enoch makes fun of Hugh's peculiars. Enoch is repeatedly rescued from the face of danger by Hugh and his bees (from the Wight's captivity and the lady at the train station). He also comforts Hugh when he's crying over the loss of his bees, and offers to revive them if he could.
Millard: He admits he taunts Millard from time to time for being invisible but still considers Millard a friend.
