Enfield enters the story mainly at the beginning. His role is to give an outsider's first impression of "the man" (Mr. Hyde). He is a Utterson's relative, and they walk regularly for exercise. On one walk Enfield encountered "the man" as he walked over a girl. The man wasn't that upset by being stopped over trampling the girl, but something in his appearance made Enfield sweat and feel loathing for the man.
