Enias in The Faerie Queene

By Edmund Spenser

Enias

A minor figure in Book 6 who is unwittingly convinced by the cruel Turpine to kill Arthur, Enias finally realizes his mistake and stays to help Arthur in apology. While Enias is pretty much your standard, courteous knight, he does make a mistake by accepting the money that Turpine offers him for helping. Knights should fight because they believe a cause to be just, not for personal gain. Bad Enias. No treat for you, Enias.
