- "Sometimes all one can do is wait."
Enoch Coltrane is a former Chronicom anthropologist, from Chronyca-2, created thirty two thousand years ago. He was mentored by Atarah, later lover, before they eventually had a falling out and grew to despise each other. He was sent to Earth in order to study and record the history of Humans.
During his study, he came into contact with Robin Hinton, whose Inhuman power made her able to see into the future, Enoch became aware of an Extinction Level Event that would destroy Earth itself. While helping Polly Hinton take care and raise her daughter, Enoch began to make arrangements to save humanity, including sending Phil Coulson's team into the future through a White Monolith, and helping Leo Fitz survive for 74 years in cryostasis to help his friends. He helped the team get back together and to the present, sacrificing himself in the process. However, because of the alterations S.H.I.E.L.D. made to the timeline, Fitz' and Enoch's services were no longer required in 2091, and so S.H.I.E.L.D. decided to find him and Fitz in space so that they could reunite with the still-living pair in the present.
After being attacked, Enoch and Fitz were forced to go on the run for the next year, while trying to find a way to return Fitz to cryostasis. Unaware that the timeline had been changed. After being reunited with Jemma Simmons, he learned that Chronyca-2 was destroyed and the remaining Chronicoms led by Atarah were trying to save their home through time-travel with the reluctant aid of Fitz and Simmons. Enoch helped them escape and once they were reunited and were on their way home, Enoch departed on his own mission to find a new home for his people. His plans were derailed when he learned that all remaining anthropologists became Chronicom Hunters. He took the skin of Isaiah and saved Fitz and Simmons from the Hunters attacked the Lighthouse.
Enoch helped them and the rest of the team escape in an upgraded Zephyr One and time travel to the 20th Century with the intent on stopping the Hunters from wiping out S.H.I.E.L.D. for good. To that end, he, with Fitz and Simmons, created a Chronicom Life-Model Decoy of Phil Coulson to help them navigate S.H.I.E.L.D.'s past.
Relationship with Atarah
- "The Enoch I invited into my charging pod was reckless but not a traitor."
"I cannot believe I ever granted you access to my data port."
- ―Atarah and Enoch
Thirty two thousand years ago, Enoch was built and put in service on the Chronyca-2. Enoch was mentored by Atarah, which eventually reached a certain level of intimacy as they somewhat became the equivalent of lovers in a Chronicom perspective. However, his relationship with Atarah eventually worsened, to the point that Enoch deeply disliked her.
2000 years later, he was sent from his planet to Earth in a Cryo-Freeze Chamber, with the intention of studying Humanity and report their progress back to his people. His pod was discovered by the United States Air Force and was taken to Blue Raven Ridge for storage.
Preparing for the End
Meeting the Hintons
Enoch learned about the existence of Robin Hinton, an Inhuman child who had trouble mastering her abilities which enabled her to gaze into different times. Enoch contacted Polly Hinton and helped her get used to her daughter's newfound powers. Over time, Enoch collected many drawings from Robin who were supposed to describe incoming or past events. Thus, he learned about a possible Destruction of Earth in the future and resolved to act in order to prevent this cataclysm.
Robin predicted that the team of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents made up of Phil Coulson, Melinda May, Daisy Johnson, Leo Fitz, Jemma Simmons, Alphonso Mackenzie and Yo-Yo Rodriguez could save Earth if they saw the aftermath of the destruction first hand in 2091. She gave Enoch the list of people but told him not to send Fitz yet. Robin also made Enoch aware of the Lighthouse and the White Monolith that is housed there.
On the day of abducting Phil Coulson's team, Enoch spent the day getting ready. He swam in his pool for a while before taking a shower, removing his Human skin in the process. Afterwards, he put on a business suit.
A group of soldiers under Enoch's command busted in Rae's Restaurant, where Coulson's team were having dinner together after the defeat of Aida. Believing that Enoch and his men were members of the authorities sent to arrest them after the Attack on the S.H.I.E.L.D. International Inquiry as expected, Coulson calmly greeted them and joked over their dramatic entrance in the diner. Before he could finish the sentence, Enoch activated a device that emitted a high pitched sound and froze Coulson and all the agents in stasis.
Enoch then reminded his men that their window to take them would close in less than two minutes before agents of the United States Armed Forces arrived to take them into custody. He ordered them to take the agents away, save for Leo Fitz, whom Enoch declared wasn't "on the list". Enoch brought the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents to the Lighthouse where he released them from their stasis and sent them through the White Monolith to 2091 to fulfill the prophecy that Robin Hinton foresaw.
Helping Leo Fitz
Six months later, Enoch was tracked down by Leo Fitz and Lance Hunter to his residence. Enoch who seemed to have expected the duo wasn't surprised to see them. When Fitz questioned his friends' whereabouts, Enoch revealed he had sent them to the year 2091 and showed then footage of the White Monolith sending them. Enoch then told the two his history and his study of Humanity. Though Hunter thought Enoch was crazy, Fitz asked why he didn't take him. Enoch revealed that he wasn't part of The Seer's list to be sent through. When Fitz demanded to be sent through, Enoch stated that the Monolith can only be activated in the future. Fitz then threatened Enoch to take him to the Seer by holding him at gunpoint.
Enoch decided to introduce Fitz and Hunter to the Seer; who turned out to be Robin Hinton in a park. Enoch greeted Polly Hinton as Fitz introduced himself. Polly showed Enoch Robin's recent drawings that depict an ancient language that is not known to Earth. When the United States Air Force intercepted them to the park they were in, Enoch calmly distributed earplugs to his allies and used his Chronicom stasis device to help them escape. Enoch then took it upon himself to lead Fitz, Hunter and the Hintons' to the Lighthouse.
Enoch escorted the four down to the Lighthouse's lower levels and explained to Fitz that he sent his team to the future because Robin had foreseen an extinction-level event in the form of the Destruction of Earth. After Robin drew Fitz saving his friends from the Kree, Enoch revealed the device in which he arrived on Earth that they could use to send Fitz to the future was at Blue Raven Ridge, the place where Fitz was imprisoned. Once Fitz and Hunter retrieved it, Enoch help Fitz enter suspended animation for 74 years and placed him on a Chronicom Vessel.
Shortly after the Destruction of Earth was prevented, an energy source in the form of a spiral was created very near Enoch's spaceship. The Chronicom apologized to the cryo frozen Leo Fitz for the situation, trying to estimate his chances of survival. He looked at the spiral through a window, as it suddenly got bigger and cut the ship in two. The duo were able to make it to a life pod before it was destroyed.
With their Cryo-Freeze Chamber destroyed, Enoch and Fitz intended to head to Naro-Atzia, the place where it was made and freeze Fitz once again. A year later, still on the run from whoever destroyed their ship, they boarded the Lazy Comet, pretending to be Sivian workers for Viro. Enoch taught Fitz the language and hid in the walls while Fitz continued the ploy.
One day, on their way to Naro-Atzia, as Fitz was opening up Enoch's hiding spot, he was caught by his crew-mates, who figured out he wasn't Sivian when he found Xandarian Snails to be disgusting. They opened up the wall Enoch was hiding in and were shocked to see him in the wall. Viro showed up on the bridge and ordered his men to throw Enoch and Fitz into space.
Enoch and Fitz were taken to the airlock, but Fitz managed to halt their execution by trying to convince Vireo that they needed him to repair his ship before they reached Naro-Atzia. Enoch vouched for Fitz by telling Vireo that he was able to make the Xandarian Snails more fertile. At first, Viro still ordered his men to throw them out but was convinced when Fitz volunteered to work for free. Viro ordered them to fix the heat shields and the airlock to earn their keep.
As they were doing what Viro ordered them to do, Fitz questioned the safety of the ship. Enoch told Fitz the ship was safe before his disdain for Xandarian Snails blew their cover. While Fitz was less than pleased by their chances of survival, Enoch remained confident that they would be able to return Fitz to cryo sleep to and prevent the Destruction of Earth according to Robin Hinton. After Fitz finished the repairs, Viro's men brought them to him on the bridge.
After watching Viro slurp down his drink, Enoch and Fitz reported that everything he asked of them had been done. Viro was pleased with their work and told them that since he two slaves that work for free, he'll be letting the workers go. Enoch thought Viro meant relieving them but found out that he planned on throwing them out the airlock before they reached Naro-Atzia. Enoch then watched as Fitz tried to bargain for his crew-mates lives, to no avail.
Enoch and Fitz watched from the shadows as Viro's men forcefully took the engineers to the airlock. While Fitz wanted to save them, Enoch recommended they avoid conflict if they are to complete their mission and reunite Fitz with Jemma Simmons. Fitz, however, couldn't stand by and let them die, as he would be unable to look Simmons in the eyes again if he let it happen, so the two came up with a plan that would save them.
While Fitz distracted Viro, Enoch sabotaged the controls, making the other airlock open, instead of the one Viro intended. After Enoch returned to the hull, he found Fitz in the airlock with the other engineers. Viro thought Enoch had picked the right side and let him go. Viro shut the airlock and prepared the flip the switch. Knowing what was about to happen, Enoch held on to the railing. Viro flipped the switch and the other airlock sucked him and his men out. Enoch then closed the airlock and let Fitz and the others. Enoch congratulated Fitz on his plan and how he knew how to deal with Viro, who told Enoch he knew how hateful men thought.
The Lazy Comet finally reached Naro-Atzia, Fitz asked Enoch about their safety. Enoch admitted that it would be difficult to cover up Viro's death, with the engineers facing the death penalty for it. Enoch recommended they could escape by hiding in the Xandarian Snail tanks, but Fitz refused, as he wanted the engineers to survive as well. Enoch suggested going to Kitson, where the engineers could find work, but questioned Fitz' plan to join Simmons in the future. Fitz simply told him that he had time and they took off to Kitson.
Making a Fortune on Kitson
- "I must admit that this journey together, from the moment our ship was attacked until now, barring perhaps that one incident with the MazTats, has been quite stimulating and informative."
"Are you seriously trying to tell me that you're having fun?"
"It would seem that, yes, I am having a facsimile of what you would call "fun"."
- ―Enoch and Leo Fitz
After the pair dropped the Sivian engineers off in Kitson City, they started to unload the Xandarian Snails to Boyle and Toad to pay for a Cryo-Freeze Chamber. When Boyle questioned where they were heading after this, Enoch bluntly informed them of their plan, much to Leo Fitz's annoyance. The scavengers didn't seem to care about it though, and got back to work unloading the snails. Enoch then listened as Toad talked about what a job they did saving the crew from Viro and how they were heroes.
When Fitz caught the eye of puffies, Enoch stopped him from eating them, informing him that they were not meant for Humans. Enoch assured Fitz they would find him food once they were paid, but were in shock when Boyle pointed a gun at them, demanding the snails and ship. Toad then showed them that the two were most wanted from his datapad. Taking pity on them, Boyle gave them a casino chip they can use at the House of Games and urged them to leave.
The two entered the casino where they were greeted by an employee who informed to leave their weapons and robotic companions behind or they would be executed. Before Fitz could urge Enoch to remain, he already walked through the scanner undetected. Fitz followed after him and questioned how he got through. He informed him that his Chronicom biology allowed him to fool any scanner. Fitz simply nodded and claimed to be happy that Enoch made it while patting his shoulder.
As the two walked down the stairs, Enoch talked about their year long adventure together and how he's been having "fun", much to Fitz' confusion. Enoch then went on to call Fitz his "best friend". He asked if Fitz felt the same, but he didn't provide an exact answer. Instead, he compared them to Xandarian snails, and how they're moving but not going anywhere. He then pulled out the casino chip and told the Chronicom that they needed more than the one chip they had before entering the main casino, with Enoch close behind.
When Fitz saw what kind of games and people were present, he became uncertain of their odds of succeeding in winning a fortune. Enoch, however, was confident in their chances. He informed Fitz that he was well-versed in over 10,000 intergalactic games of chance, some of which were being played in the casino they were in. Fitz asked which games he was good at, but Enoch revealed he was only an observer, not a participant. This gave Fitz little hope in seeing Jemma Simmons again and walked off.
After meeting up with Fitz, the two tried to figure out which game to bet on. Enoch believed a drink could help them decide and ordered two Barracooladas from a waitress. Fitz questioned why he did that, but Enoch assured him that they were "quite delicious". Fitz specified that it wasn't the taste, but the price; they only had one chip. Enoch realized their predicament and found a way to remedy it. He grabbed the chip and placed it on a gaming board. It lit up at that moment and Enoch won a handful of chips because of it. Fitz pulled Enoch to the side and asked how he did that. Enoch began to explain how he deduced the odds, but Fitz cut him off, realizing he was an advanced computer. Enoch felt like that was an insult, but Fitz assured him it wasn't and convinced him to use his advanced thinking to their advantage by calling him his best friend.
Enoch and Fitz were soon given their drinks and Enoch enjoyed it while Fitz denied it. Fitz deduced that the table behind them was where the most money was being won. Enoch was eager to join their ranks, but Fitz told him it depended on his poker face. Enoch unfortunately informed that his current face was the only one he had. Enoch walked up to the empty seat and bared greetings to the brigands. He sat down next to Wayne and begun to play. Enoch made great progress in winning a fortune, chatting up with Wayne in the process.
Enoch continued to make great strides in his fortune, laughing along with Wayne. When the next bet came up, Wayne told Enoch that he was going to sit out of the next round, Enoch thanked him for the heads up and proceeded to place his bets. Fitz tried to stop him, believing it was a trap. Enoch disagreed and informed him that he thinks he found a "like-minded friend" to join their adventure. Fitz, however, didn't believe Wayne was a friend, much to Enoch's disappointment. Enoch placed his bets, but was confused when Wayne decided play. In the end, Wayne won and Enoch loss his fortunes. He questioned if Wayne lied to him, to which he openly acknowledged. This left Enoch in a daze as to him being manipulated.
The two sat at the bar in despair with Fitz dumbfounded that Enoch lost all their money. Enoch defended himself, saying Wayne intentionally deceived him. Fitz called it bluffing and compared it to what Enoch does. Enoch, however, saw no comparison. Fitz reminded him that he was a robot passing as human, which was bluffing. Enoch pointed out again that he wasn't a robot. He then asked if Fitz was bluffing when he refereed to him as his best friend. Fitz believed it didn't matter anymore and didn't answer. Wanting to make up for his blunder, Enoch recommended other ways to win money, such as the brothels of Kitson. Fitz, however, refused to take part in the brothels.
Enoch then suggested a game that didn't require bluffing, but a strategy based entirely on mathematical odds. Fitz asked him why he didn't suggest this before and Enoch told him it was because it was very high stakes. Enoch brought Fitz to where the game would be played where he was examined by Montalban. He claimed that Fitz would fetch a high price, which led Fitz to realize he was the collateral. Enoch informed if he loss he would be sold into slavery. Now terrified, Fitz tried to get Enoch to take his place, He, however, reminded him he had to count the tiles. He told him he would signal him using a high-pitched tone that only human ears could hear. Fitz took a seat and Enoch told him not to get a fourteen without further explanation.
- "Shut down. Which can only mean I am decommissioned. I am useless now. I have soiled the integrity of Chronicoms. The name Enoch will be an unspeakable sound"
- ―Enoch after his automatic shutdown
As the game progressed, Enoch used his high-pitch tone to aide Fitz. Though it looked as though they were winning, Enoch was automatically shutdown and started echoing his high-pitch tone. He was discovered by Montalban, who ordered everyone but Fitz to leave. Montalban locked them in and Fitz was finally able to turn Enoch back on. Enoch felt uncomfortable and urged Fitz to cease. Fitz told him that he set off a "air-raid alarm". Enoch, however, realized that he was remotely shutdown and told him that it was a Chronicom Hunter that caused the shutdown and that they were on their way.
Realizing that his shutdown meant he was decommissioned, Enoch became depressed. He sat down and went on about how he soiled what it meant to be a Chronicom. Fitz tried to find a way to escape before they could skin them, but Enoch didn't care if they had his skin, referring to it as his uniform of shame. Fitz tried to convince Enoch that he wasn't useless and to help him. When Fitz questioned what that horrible smell was, Enoch claimed it as the foul stench of the name Enoch. Fitz, instead, referred to the dead poker gamer and Enoch informed him he was a Crepetolian whose blood was made up of 75% sulfur. He proceeded to bang his head on the table.
Enoch then began to go into extensional crisis, believing he shouldn't even exist. While he was moping, Fitz spread the Crepetolian's blood across the door and asked Enoch to "spark up". Enoch questioned why he would do that when there was no purpose, saying the both of them would soon be dust and rust. To make Enoch feel better, Fitz called him his best friend and that was his purpose. Enoch believed he was bluffing, but Fitz assured him he wasn't; that he in the time he's known him, he's grown on him.
This gave Enoch the purpose he needed and told Fitz he would do anything for his best friend. He walked over to the door and sparked his fingers to ignite the sulfur. The spark blew the door open, but Enoch was knocked away momentarily. When he came to, Fitz had been taken by the Chronicom Hunter Malachi. As he came out of the room, he noticed a surprised Simmons standing in front of him. Believing Simmons should be in 2091 with the rest of her team, he questioned why she was here.
Learning of Chronyca-2's Fate
Enoch and Jemma Simmons reunited with Daisy Johnson and escaped back to Zephyr One before they were captured by Kitson's enforcement. While fleeing in deep space, Enoch continued to mop over how he was a decommissioned Chronicom; Davis was irritated by Enoch's constant complaining but let it go when Piper reminded him how he damaged their super-threatening fuse box while he was high on alien puffs.
Johnson and Simmons tried to get back on topic and asked Enoch who the bounty hunter that took Leo Fitz was. Remembering that Fitz was taken, Enoch swore that despite he now was alone he would never forget his only friend. Simmons tried to ease his sadness by telling him that they were his friends. Enoch, however, reminded her that the last time he saw them, he kidnapped her team and sent them to a dystopian future. Though it wasn't a good start to their relationship, Johnson and Simmons told Enoch sacrificed himself to send them back to the present and save the Earth from destruction.
Enoch became confused as to why Chronicom Hunters were after him if he had completed his mission. When Johnson mentioned how they thought they were the Confederacy, Enoch believed it would have been better if it was the Confederacy as the hunters were ruthless and would never release Fitz. After Simmons swore to never stop fighting to get Fitz back, they were attacked. Enoch, Johnson, Simmons, and Piper got to the bridge where they found Confederate Destroyer Ships coming out of hyperspace; Enoch mouthed a "oh dear".
The four agents prepared for the Remorath to come through as Enoch recounted that ships similar to the ones that surround them attacked him and Fitz and destroyed their Chronicom Vessel, with them barely escaping in a pod. As the agents prepared for an attack, Enoch pointed out that if they wanted them dead, they would've cut the ship in two. Believing it wasn't the Confederacy Enoch went to open the door, despite the others pleads to stop. When Enoch opened the door, he was surprised to see Atarah. The greeted each other in the typical Chronicom fashion, before Enoch introduced her to the others. Atarah informed Enoch that he was to face trial for tampering with the universe; Enoch accepted his punishment.
The Chronicoms locked Davis and Piper in the brig while Atarah led Enoch, Johnson, and Simmons to the bridge. As they were walking, Atarah revealed that the Confederacy ships were theirs now, to which Enoch noted as aggressive even for her. When they finally reached the bridge, Atarah gave Enoch the grim news that Chronyca-2 had been destroyed, much to Enoch's horror. She explained how they're planet was destroyed and when the Confederacy showed up they seized their ships to flee.
Simmons noted that it was a tragedy what happened but asked what it had to do with them. Enoch deduced that Atarah wanted to know how they traveled back in time from 2091 so they could do the same and save their home from destruction. Johnson and Simmons were hesitant to give them that information since they had been hunting them for the last year. So, Atarah projected a hologram of Fitz being held at gunpoint by Malachi. Enoch greeted his "bestie", but was horrified when Malachi hit him in the stomach. He then listened as Atarah told them that Fitz was on another ship and if they didn't behave, he would be sent somewhere they would never find him.
Enoch took Atarah to the side and tried to convince her that Leo Fitz wasn't their enemy and demanded she release him. Atarah denied and urged Enoch to help them instead. Enoch went on to talk about how Fitz had been a loyal companion in the last year. Atarah didn't care, however, and noted that Earth had made him soft. Enoch agreed with her view of him, but believed that one had to change to grow. Atarah was disgusted of what Enoch had become and that the Enoch she invited into her charging pod was reckless, not a traitor. Enoch, as well, couldn't believe he granted her access to his data port. Seeing Enoch wouldn't help, Atarah proceeded her way.
Atarah returned to Daisy Johnson and Jemma Simmons and told them that if they refused to help her she had no further use for Fitz and ordered Malachi to kill him on her order. The hologram of Fitz faded and Enoch demanded she bring him back. He listened as Simmons told her about the time machine in the future, but it was destroyed. When Atarah figured she had no more use for any of them, Enoch tried to convince her that Fitz was their best option of figuring out Time Travel. Atarah tried to convince Enoch one last time to aide them by revealing what would motivate Fitz to help.
After a moment of hesitation, Enoch finally revealed that if they put Simmons in danger, Fitz would have all the motivation he needed to figure out time travel; Johnson and Simmons were appalled by Enoch's decision. Enoch was then distraught when Atarah ordered her men to kill Johnson, Davis, and Piper, as they were of no use, but to leave FitzSimmons alive. Realizing Atarah no longer had any leverage over them, Johnson quaked her and her hunters. Before leaving, they gave Enoch a disappointed look and fled to rescue Davis and Piper.
After Atarah recovered, he joined her and the others in hunting down the agents. When they finally reached them, he witnessed Simmons give herself up to let the others escape. Enoch then visited Fitz in his cell and briefed him on the situation. When he informed him of Simmons' capture, Fitz asked him to fill in the blanks. He reluctantly told him that he offered Simmons up so that the two of them could be spared. Fitz, however, was furious at Enoch for what he did and ordered him to leave his cell. Enoch pulled out a small device and told Fitz he would always be his friend before releasing gas into the cell, causing Fitz to fall unconscious.
The Chronicoms hooked Leo Fitz and Jemma Simmons to the Cerebral Fusion Machine believing they can take what information they muster in it to solve the secret to Time Travel. Enoch was weary of this, as the device could kill them, but Atarah reminded him of his belief that the Human mind was a powerful thing so two of them would be sufficient.
Enoch listened in on Atarah's conversation with FitzSimmons in the fusion machine and agreed with the latter that using the machine on humans was to dangerous. Atarah argued that Chronicoms had used it to great effect and that there was no better way to solve the problem that was presented. Enoch reminded her that unlike Chronicoms, Humans have emotional problems. Malachi approached Enoch and observed that he might be developing emotions himself. Atarah than brought up their planet's destruction and that they are fighting for their very survival. Enoch agreed that they needed to be at their best, but believed if Fitz were conscious he would call Atarah "the absolute worst".
Seeing that their minds were at war with each other, Enoch urged Atarah to pull them out or risk loosing what information they had. Malachi stopped Enoch from approaching Atarah and she demanded Enoch to finally pick a side: his people or his friends. Enoch chose his friends and took "bold action" and deactivated Atarah, Malachi and the other Chronicoms present, taking Malachi's Chronicom Rifle and Inter-Planetary Conveyance Disc. He unplugged FitzSimmons from the machine and ordered them to embrace him. As he activated the disc to escape, he heard Simmons tell Fitz that he was a grandfather. Before the latter could ask what that meant, they teleported away.
Back on Kitson
The three twleported back to Kitson, where they caught the attention of the locals before they went back to their business. Leo Fitz questioned Enoch why he sent them back here, but he informed them it was an accident as it was his first time using a Inter-Planetary Conveyance Disc. He assured them he make a few adjustments, only to see that another guest took the disc and teleported away. Enoch then stated the obvious that they were stuck on Kitson, which was unfortunate as they were still wanted. This caused Fitz to yell at him as Jemma Simmons groaned that she just wanted to go home.
To attract attention until the coast was clear, the three pretended to participate in casino games. While Enoch kept an eye on the door, Simmons unconvincingly cheered for the game. He payed little attention to Simmons talking about her time high the last time they were there. When the coast was finally clear, he urged his friends that it was time to leave. As they approached the exit, they were halted by Montalban. He was pleased they returned and believed Mister Kitson would be too. They were then taken into custody.
The three were chained and taken to Mister Kitson's office. As they waited, they were told the portraits across the House of Games were of Mister Kitson's grandfather, the first Mister Kitson. When the current Kitson finally arrived, he talked about how his grandfather created the House of Games and that they almost ruined it by bringing Enoch and bounty hunters into the house. They tried to negotiate with Kitson, to no avail. He sentenced Enoch to the brothel; Enoch didn't know what he was feeling. While FitzSimmons were sentenced to death.
After FitzSimmons were rescued by Izel, she purchased Enoch and the four sat to celebrate their freedom. Enoch thanked Izel for purchasing his release, but she didn't care for him, but FitzSimmons insisted she help him, and he was cheap. Enoch took some offense to it. Izel then revealed that she wanted FitzSimmons as her new crew to help her find valuable artifacts, but they declined as they just wanted to go back home to Earth. Izel informed that was where they were headed, so they agreed. Unfortunately, Izel didn't have a ship, but Enoch and Fitz believed they knew where to get one.
A New Mission
Enoch then headed to the exit, but Leo Fitz stopped him and asked where he was going. Enoch explained that since the Earth was destroyed and he and Jemma Simmons secured passage home, he had a new mission - to find a new home for his people. Fitz and Simmons thanked Enoch for everything, though the former added that he had completely disrupt his life. Enoch said your welcome and embraced Fitz. Before leaving he gave Fitz a communicator in case he was ever in trouble and bid farewell.
After leaving Leo Fitz and Jemma Simmons, Enoch returned to the House of Games. In secret, he contacted his old friend Isaiah on the planet Leitner. He asked how the population was doing and received the tragic news that they were still cooking with feces. When Isaiah told Enoch that he knew of Chronyca-2's destruction, Enoch got to the point - he planned on relocating their fellow anthropologist that were safely stationed away. When Isaiah asked if they were the last of their people, Enoch told them that there were others, but he was avoiding them. After they exchanged in friendly banter, Enoch told Isaiah that they needed the gather the fragments of their broken civilization.
Enoch waited at the House of Games for the next couple days for Isaiah to arrive with the list of Chronicom anthropologists. He was in the middle of a beverage when Isaiah finally arrived. He apologized for their unfortunate surroundings and asked how their efforts were fairing in tracking down the anthropologists. Isaiah did, but he had bad news; all the Chronicoms on his list had been reassigned. He showed him his list and Enoch was stunned to see they had all been reassigned to hunter. The list soon revealed that Isaiah had also been reassigned as a hunter. Enoch slowly turned to his former friend, before he jumped him.
Despite the sudden betrayal, Enoch was able to kill Isaiah. Figuring the Chronicom Hunters planned on making Earth their new home, Enoch took Isaiah's skin to infiltrate the hunters and "bluff" his way to save his friends.
Enoch took part in the Ambush at the Lighthouse in Isaiah's skin, but made sure not to kill anyone. After taking the command center, he stood with Malachi and Baal-Gad as they insulted his views of humanity. He "bluffed" that his passion for humans was his undoing and watched Malachi order Baal-Gad to follow S.H.I.E.L.D. protocol to flesh out the remaining agents. Malaci was then given Nick Fury's Toolbox and ordered "Isaiah" to find him the key.
Enoch and his troops got a hold of the Theta Brain-Wave Frequency Machine and took it into a secret room within the Lighthouse. His two soldiers found Leo Fitz and Jemma Simmons hiding and attempted to kill them before Enoch saved them by killing his soldiers first. Seeing that the pin to a grenade was loose, he calmly placed it back into the grenade they were holding and apologized in his regular voice for the confusion.
FitzSimmons realized it was Enoch and came out of theirt hiding spot. He explained that bluffing was easier if he killed Isaiah took his skin. He gave Fitz his Chronicom Rifle and revealed that a second wave of hunters were coming. Simmons doubted they would survive, but Enoch assured her he had a plan, but must act fast. Seeing that Enoch was holding something back, Fitz asked what else he was hiding. He explained that this would be the hardest thing they ever done - change the course of their lives forever. FitzSimmons, however, didn't seem that phased by the idea.
Traveling to the 20th Century
To be added
Putting a Plan into Motion
- "While you were asleep, I had time to put a plan in motion. We have a few days before we arrive at the Lighthouse. That should give me enough time to prepare you."
Prepare me for what?"
"Facing off against some of the most ruthless and brutal mobsters, monsters and mercenaries in the galaxy. I hope you have it in you."
- ―Enoch and Leo Fitz
While Leo Fitz was asleep, Enoch put a plan into motion and gave Fitz the identity of Boshtok, a vial Marauder with unlimited wealth to impress the Kree Watch leader Kasius. 74 years later, Enoch woke Leo Fitz up from his cryosleep and informed him of his plan, giving him his helmet and arrival time to the Lighthouse.
Leo Fitz' Right-Hand Man
The duo arrived at the Lighthouse with the intent of purchasing the captured Daisy Johnson, who come to be known as "Destroyer of Worlds". Enoch and Fitz were with the other bitters as Enoch introduced Fitz to Karaba and Gaius Ponarian, the latter of whom Enoch is disgusted by. The two retreated to a corner where Enoch went over Fitz' identity as Boshtok. They were soon interrupted when Fitz spotted Jemma Simmons. Enoch made a joke about introducing them before letting Fitz talk to her.
As Fitz had dinner with Kasius and the other bitters, Enoch stood to watch with the other consultants of the buyers. He later attended a fight to the death with the others with Melinda May being the one to fight against Kasius' prized Inhuman, Ben. Fitz, however, was able to halt the fight when it looked like May was going to lose, and trick Kasius to send May to the Earth's surface. After the match, Enoch stood helplessly as Sinara executed Ben for lying to Kasius about Johnson's friends not being from the past.
After Ben's execution, Enoch caught up with Fitz as he tried to reunite with Simmons but was prevented by Ava. He informed him that their plan had hit a snag as Kasius' brother Faulnak, who was wealthier and more feared than Fitz was, was arriving to purchase Johnson. When Kasius refused to let Fitz purchase Johnson from him instead of his brother, Fitz assigned Enoch to rescue May on the surface after Enoch gave him an I.C.E.R. for his plan help Johnson and Simmons escape.
Enoch disguised himself as a Kree and made his way to the elevator to the surface. He met a Kree soldier, who he greeted as brother. When the soldier questioned his decision to go to the surface as the Vrellnexians would kill any person that went down there, Enoch shot him with his I.C.E.R. and calmly told the unconscious soldier he wasn't a person and proceeded to the surface.
Rescuing Melinda May
While Leo Fitz rescued Jemma Simmons and Daisy Johnson from Kasius, Enoch, in the process of find Melinda May killed three Vrellnexians. When he met May she mistook him for a Life-Model Decoy which Fitz built. Just as Enoch explained to her his hierarchy, she realized Enoch was the "son of a bitch" that kidnapped them and failed to strangle him. Enoch assured her he was here to help and the duo was hit by a Gravity storm and was pinned to the ground by a mysterious man who arrived at the location.
Enoch and May were then taken to an old and rusty Zephyr One which acted as a secret base to the True Believers, a faction of Humans who believed and followed the prophecies of Robin Hinton. Enoch greeted May as she woke up and watched as Hinton introduced herself to the S.H.I.E.L.D. agent after waiting so long to see her again.
Reuniting with Fitz and the Team
Enoch and Melinda May were later reunited with Phil Coulson and his team which escaped from the Lighthouse. When Coulson and May hit a brick wall with Robin Hinton, they asked if Enoch knew how to reach her. Unfortunately, Enoch had no way of reaching her in this state and simply suggested to wait until she opened up. After Samuel Voss murdered Hinton to keep her from revealing anything to the team, Enoch stood with everyone else as May revealed that Flint was their ticket home.
Escaping the Gravity Storms
- "If I had a stomach, the vomiting would begin now."
In the aftermath of a minor clash between team S.H.I.E.L.D. and the True Believers, Enoch questioned Flint's geokinesis ability to Phil Coulson, but got little answers. Enoch soon realized that the team were trying to repair Zephyr One instead of evacuating to the caves for shelter. Enoch tried to talk them out of their dangerous plan, to no success. Melinda May then ordered him to place supplies in the back.
As the gravity storms increased, Enoch strapped himself in, only for the Zephyr's engines to blow up. Enoch suggested once more to evacuate to the caves and tried to go first, before being knocked down by another hit. Enoch helped the others prepare to leave, before Leo Fitz and Jemma Simmons revealed the Zephyr's anti-gravity capabilities, giving them away to get to the Lighthouse.
Enoch once again buckled himself in next to Coulson as he explained their slim odds of surviving. May told to "observe" and "share" less. As the Zephyr took off they encountered difficulties, with Enoch believing he would vomit if he had a stomach. After a brief duel between Daisy Johnson and Sinara that resulted in the latter's death, the team made it through the gravity storms. Enoch complimented their risky plan and the team headed towards the Lighthouse.
- "My battery has sustained me for more than 32,000 Earth years. Modifying the cell stack could create thermal feedback capable of delivering more than enough power."
"Thermal feedback? What happens to you in that scenario?"
"I will expire, knowing I returned my friends home. And then my battery chemistry will consume my body in an exothermal reaction violent enough to decimate several levels of the Lighthouse."
- ―Enoch and Deke Shaw
Once in the Lighthouse, everyone in Zephyr One except Enoch left using the Containment Module while the former stayed back in order to operate the cyclotron which would be responsible for activation of the portal which could send the agents back to the past. After a Kree Watch Commander finished his sweep of the Zephyr, Enoch came out of his hiding place and informed his allies that he will have the machine ready for Flint to activate.
While wiring the cyclotron used to open the portal, Enoch was interrupted by a Kree Watch soldier trying to get in. Enoch calmly contacted Phil Coulson and informed of the situation. When Coulson questioned how long he would be able to hold out, Enoch proceeded to shoot the Kree twice in the stomach before he was able to get in and told Coulson roughly 12 minutes.
Enoch was soon ambushed by another Kree, and although overpowered instantly, Enoch was saved by the arrival Deke Shaw. Enoch, mortally wounded from the attack, and realizing the machine was damaged opened up the suggestion to use the dying battery in his body as a power source for activating the machine in an act of self-sacrifice. Shaw agreed to the plan despite Enoch's warnings that the explosion could vaporize him at the sub-atomic level.
With the Lighthouse already evacuated, Enoch began wiring himself to the machine. While S.H.I.E.L.D. slowly reassembled in light of Kasius's death, Enoch began drifting into unconsciousness. With this, Shaw activated the cyclotron, which in turn triggered the White Monolith to open, transporting S.H.I.E.L.D. back to the present day timeline. However, almost immediately after their departure, Enoch's battery combusted, destroying him in a brutal explosion, that also destroyed several levels of the Lighthouse.
Enoch generally displays a very calm demeanor. Even when Lance Hunter or Leo Fitz threatened him with a gun, Enoch did not seem particularly troubled or afraid. He carries his task with a high level of professionalism and takes his work very seriously. Despite being responsible for the abduction of most of the S.H.I.E.L.D. team, he was willing to help Leo Fitz get to them as soon as he was part of Robin Hinton's prophecies, showing that his actions are not motivated by a desire to wrong others but simply that he follows the instructions given to him. In the end, Enoch was even ready to sacrifice himself so that the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, who he called his friends, could return to their time.
Despite not being often seen smiling, Enoch also displays some sense of humor. He teased Fitz by asking him if he should introduce Jemma Simmons to him, knowing full well of their relationship, and declared that elaborating Fitz' alias as Boshtok the Marauder was quite amusing.
Although Enoch seemed to be really cautious, refusing to interfere in events unless absolute necessity and always advocating the safest option, he was described by his fellow Chronicom Noah as "reckless."
Enoch appears to be, as expected from a functioning robot, completely loyal and committed to his very defined missions. He waited alongside Fitz for more than seventy years and willingly sacrificed his life to help Coulson's team to get back to the past\present, all for his mission, to help to prevent an extinction-level-event. When he was released from his duties as an anthropologist, he visibly broke, sitting down and starting to question why is he even exist, mind nothing.
Although, throughout his journey with Fitz in the space after their spaceship was destroyed he learned how to feel and understand emotions, claiming to Fitz to "have a facsimile of what you would call 'fun'", and stating that Fitz became, for him, his best friend and was curious to know if Fitz feeling the same, and getting cheered-up after Fitz assuring him that he is feeling like that, enough to been shaken out of his complete depression of been decommissioned by his superiors, and he embraced his new purpose, to help Fitz, his best friend.
Powers and Abilities
- "I am not a robot, droid, mech, cyborg, or synth. I am a Chronicom. I was designed with internal mechanisms that mask my non-organic structure and mimic human biological function. I can easily fool any scanner."
- Chronicom Physiology: As a Chronicom, Enoch is a synthetic being and naturally possesses physical capabilities beyond any Human being.
- Longevity: Enoch claims he was sent to Earth thirty thousand years ago, which means he has been on the planet almost from the beginning of humanity. Enoch is also well-versed in over 10,000 galactic games of chance, having been an observer.
- Compressability: Due to being made mostly of plastic alloy, Enoch can squeeze his body into extremely confined spaces. While travelling through space with Leo Fitz, he hid in a small space on the Lazy Comet before he was caught by the Sivian workers. In a alternate future Enoch squeezed himself in a combined space in Zephyr One to hide from the Kree Watch Commander.
- Enhanced Intelligence: Enoch is essentially a highly advanced computer, as his computations can precisely calculate odds, granting him proficiency in mathematics and probability. However, due to his social inexperience, Enoch cannot distinguish between the truth and deception.
- Voice Manipulation: Enoch can alter his voice to emit a high-pitched tone that only Human and Inhuman ears can register. According to Jemma Simmons, the sound is similar to that of a dolphin's.
- Computer Interaction : Using his robotic parts as a Chronicom, Enoch is basically a super advanced computer that can hack and override other computer systems and the software and hardware of other Chronicoms. He easily overrode Malachi's, Atarah's, and their Hunters computer system in his successful attempt to rescue Leo Fitz and Jemma Simmons.
- Appearance Alteration: Thanks to his synthetic skin, Enoch can physically alter his appearance to look like a Human or other galactic humanoids like Kree. In an alternate timeline where humanity was enslaved by the Kree Watch, Enoch disguised himself to look like a Kree Watch Sentry to head to the destroyed surface of Earth in order to rescue Melinda May from the Vrellnexians.
- Anthropologist: Enoch is assumed to be an expert anthropologist since he has been documenting Human evolution for myriads of years.
- Bilingualism: Enoch speaks fluent English and he taught Leo Fitz how to speak Sivian while in deep space.
- Expert Combatant: Despite being an anthropologist, Enoch has shown remarkable skills in combat. He was able to take on a handful of Chronicom Hunters and shut them down and kill Isaiah after he surprised him with his betrayal.
- I.C.E.R.: While helping Leo Fitz saving his friends from the Lighthouse, Enoch armed himself with an I.C.E.R. he used to neutralize one of the Kree Watch guards.
- Smith & Wesson M&P: Enoch used this gun to kill a Kree Watch guard.
- Chronicom Rifle: While wearing Isaiah's skin, Enoch used a Chronicom Rifle to save Leo Fitz and Jemma Simmons from two Chronicom Hunters.
- Cryo-Freeze Chamber: When Enoch left Chronyca-2 to study Humans on Earth, he traveled there via the Cryo-Freeze Chamber. When he arrived, the chamber was taken into the United States Air Force before 100 years later, Leo Fitz and Lance Hunter recovered it from its storage room and returned it to Enoch, who used it to send Fitz to 2091.
- Stasis Device: Enoch has a device which creates a shrill sound, capable of stunning those who hear it. When the effect of the device expired, the victims feel like no time has passed, but in reality, Enoch can operate freely. He utilized this device to kidnap the S.H.I.E.L.D. team, minus Leo Fitz, and send them to 2091 and later helped Fitz, Hunter, Polly Hinton, and Robin Hinton escape from the United States Air Force.
- White Monolith: Enoch used this Monolith to teleport S.H.I.E.L.D. to 2091 to prevent the Destruction of Earth. In the now erased timeline where the Earth wasn't destroyed, Enoch used a fragment of the Monolith to teleport the team back to 2017 using the Isochronus Cyclotron.
- Inter-Planetary Conveyance Disc: After helping Fitz and Jemma Simmons escape from the Cerebral Fusion Machine, Enoch used Malachi's Inter-Planetary Conveyance Disc to accidentally teleport them to Kitson. While disguised as Isaiah, Enoch used another Conveyance Disc infiltrate the Lighthouse with the other Chronicom Hunters to rescue Fitz and Simmons from their imminent death.
- Isochronus Cyclotron: In a erased future, Enoch prepared this device with the power of the White Monolith fragment to send the S.H.I.E.L.D. team back to their own time. When the time machine was severely damaged by a Kree Watch soldier who was about kill him, Enoch was forced to have Deke Shaw hook himself up the machine to power it and ended up sacrificing his life to operate it and send his friends home.
- Chronicom Vessel: Enoch owned a Chronicom spaceship in which he brought Leo Fitz in his Cryo-Freeze Chamber, waking him up in year 2091 to meet up with his friends. After their cover was blown, the vessel was destroyed by the Kree Watch to prevent their escape. In the timeline in which the Earth wasn't destroyed, Enoch and Fitz were forced to flee the ship when they were attacked by the Confederacy.
- Lazy Comet: After Enoch and Fitz rescued the Sivian engineers from Viro, they commandeered the Lazy Comet and transported the engineers to Kitson so they can find work. They lost the ship when Boyle and Toad double crossed them and forced them to try and buy a new ship at the House of Games.
- Enoch's House: After arriving on Earth, Enoch purchased a house that he stayed at for an unknown period of time. He kept much of Robin Hinton's drawings of the future on his fridge and in other rooms. Six months after sending the S.H.I.E.L.D. team to 2091, he was confronted by Leo Fitz and Lance Hunter who he helped learn about Robin Hinton's prophecy of the future. He was forced to abandon his house when the United States Air Force tracked Fitz and Hunter's location to the house.
- Lighthouse: As a Chronicom, Enoch settled down at the Lighthouse to monitor human activity on Earth. He later brought Fitz, Hunter, Polly Hinton and Robin Hinton into the facility while helping Fitz to find his missing friends, and also told Noah about the place after he accompanied Fitz in the Chronicom Vessel to take the long way to 2091. A year later, under the guise of Isaiah, Enoch went undercover as a Chronicom Hunter to "help" his fellow hunters take control of the Lighthouse, only to help Fitz and Jemma Simmons escape.
