Quote "Well maybe he wouldn't be if you'd say hello"

Aunt Ena is Faline's mother, Bambi's mother-in-law and Geno and Gurri's maternal grandmother.


Ena appears when she is with Bambi's mother out in the meadow when Bambi hides behind his mother when being chased by Faline. Faline says to Ena that Bambi is bashful to which Ena replies that he may not be if Faline says hello to him. Bambi later chases Faline around Ena and his mother before the two fawns run further into the meadow together whilst being watched on by their mothers.

Ena, Faline, Bambi, Bambi's mother along with the other deer leave the meadow after being alerted of Man's arrival by Bambi's father The Great Prince of the Forest.

At the end of the film, Ena gains two grandchildren named Geno and Gurri.
