Ennis is an antagonist and a survivor of the outbreak in AMC's Fear The Walking Dead. He was a high ranking member of the Vultures. Being directly responsible for the fall of the Dell Diamond Baseball Stadium community, Ennis serves as the secondary antagonist of the first half of Season 4. Ennis is described as a "rough-around-the edges kind of guy who only thinks about himself".
Ennis is shown to be a very hostile individual and a vicious bully, as he took pleasure in taunting Nick about the foods he just collected and about Charlie. He does appear to genuinely care about Charlie as he is often seen looking after and playing with her. Charlie's reaction to his death by shooting his killer shows that Ennis was kind enough to her for Charlie to form a genuine attachment to him.
Nothing is known about Ennis' life prior to or as the outbreak began, other than he has a brother named Melvin.
When Ennis arrives at the Dell Diamond Baseball Stadium, he retrieves a bike from his car and rides around the parking lot while blasting a stereo to lure the zombies into a truck before scrawling a number on a flag and attaching it to the truck.
He then camps out in the parking lot with his brother Melvin and the other Vultures, unfazed by the defiant survivors and their guns.
In a flashback, Ennis brings supplies out of a church when suddenly Madison and Nick arrive. They exchange words with Ennis, who was getting ahead of the Clarks and stripping locations of all supplies thanks to Charlie eavesdropping on the radio, listening in on the Dell Diamond's plans. Ennis is then attacked by Nick, who holds a knife to his throat. Madison manages to talk Nick down of hurting Ennis as Charlie watches on. Despite sustaining a nick on his neck, the Clarks leave Ennis and Charlie to finish scavenging the church.
In the present, Nick spots Ennis' El Camino driving down the road and fights Morgan off in order to pursue it. Morgan, trying to protect Nick, attempts to warn Ennis away before Nick arrives but he is unsuccessful. Nick, wielding a hammer, approaches Ennis, who remains unfazed. He enters a nearby silo and scavenges for supplies. Nick enters the silo and proceed to attack Ennis. While Ennis initially is able to fight off Nick, he ends up impaled on a set of antlers from a mounted deer head. While Ennis is seriously wounded, Nick pushes Ennis further onto the antlers, eventually killing him.
After an argument with Ennis, Mel leaves The Vultures and gets into a car crash, leading Charlie to seek help from the stadium. Mel later warns Madison that Ennis intends to lead an attack on the stadium while Victor Strand finds evidence that Ennis is amassing a large army of infected.
That night, Ennis leads a convoy of trucks filled with hundreds of oil-soaked walkers to the stadium. On Ennis' command, the walkers are released and the Vultures ignite a trail of oil in front of the gate, creating a line of fire with Alicia, Nick, Luciana and Melvin trapped in a truck outside.
In the present, Naomi leads Morgan Jones, Al, Charlie and John Dorie back to the abandoned stadium for medical supplies. Naomi tells them that the infirmary remains intact because Ennis and the others stripped what they could from the outside, but even Ennis wouldn't have gone into the stadium for the rest. In the aftermath of Ennis' attack, the stadium is shown to be overrun with hundreds of burned walkers.
