Enit is a Deinonychus and Chief Librarian of Waterfall City. His assistant is Nallab.[2]


Enit and Nallab backwards spell "Ballantine" in homage to James Gurney's friendship with the founder of Ballantine Books co-founder Ian Ballantine. The character Nallab was drawn to look like the late Ian Ballantine, and he used that image on one of his many business card designs.
