Ehne [Eh-neh] is the main antagonist of Galaxy Mew Mew, making her first appearance shortly after Hotaru’s induction into the team. She is a vile ‘female’ being belonging to a relatively hostile race known as The Ajra.
Ehne, who adopted her name from one of the living creatures she had consumed over her lifespan, is a gelatinous “female” being belonging to a race called The Ajra. On her home planet, she worked as an assistant to an Analyst (much like a scientist), working under her Empress. Working with some stolen technology from another alien race, Ehne began to look for a way to clone her species, using her own ‘DNA’ in the process. She was unable to successfully clone her species after numerous attempts, and so she thought the technology useless to her kind. However, Ehne managed to create a prototype of a new nameless subspecies that the humans would soon learn to call parasites. This single parasitic prototype was harmless to the Ajra, as it could and would not attack its sister kind. However, Ehne soon discovered that this being was able to infect other living things and mutate their form into a monstrous creature [that would eventually come to be called a Chimera Anima]. Ehne’s Empress thought that if this creature were properly studied and proved stable, it could be replicated and used to their species’ advantage. Ehne first tried to clone only a few at a time to test out, which she succeeded at. From there, Ehne was sent off in a ship with various biological technology to find a planet with enough life for her to freely test her parasitic beings on. Ehne so happened to land on Earth (undetectably so due to a technology that kept her ship invisible). In order to know more about the Earth and the humans, Ehne consumed a human lifeform and assumed her form to avoid any attention. On Earth, she successfully studied the parasites and learned everything she needed to know about their behavior and activity, also finding that since they came from her ‘DNA’, they were obedient and loyal to her. They behaved much like a puppet to its master.
Ehne only intended to test her creation out on Earth before returning to her home, thinking the humans too pathetic to waste too much time on. She began a cloning process, creating over 100,000 more of her parasites, and intended to arrive home with them for her Empress to use at will. But in the midst of it all, she received a distress signal from her people, warning her NOT to come back. She learned that her planet’s core had begun to become unstable; There were violent quakes that began to expose the heat of their core, and its contents spewed out and flooded their planet. Her people writhed in pain as they decomposed from the heat, as they were susceptible to it. Her Empress sent out the distress signal to her Analyst’s apprentice, warning her to stay away before she finally perished with her people. Ehne was devastated and scornful, knowing that she was the last of her kind along with the parasites that she had created. She had nowhere else she could go, so she decided that if she couldn’t leave this planet, she would claim it as her own and allow her children to populate it and hopefully eventually evolve into a species not unlike hers. When her parasites were successfully cloned, she released them onto the world, allowing them to infest and mutate many of its animal lifeforms and even some human lifeforms. The humans were essentially forced to escape their planet due to the infestation and danger of these rapidly growing monsters.
Ehne is a very vile creature, and very susceptible to fits of rage, panic, annoyance and pride. She is very protective, but also very devious and “playful”, often teasing, jeering or playing mindgames with the Galaxy Mews (always trying to discourage them from their mission as well). While Ehne is very stubborn in nature, she is very cautious and runs away if she feels too threatened, as she is afraid of dying. Ehne claims that her kind do not feel or understand love, although she refers to her parasitic creations as her ‘children’ and keeps them close in reliance.
As with the rest of her kind, Ehne can regenerate herself, change her shape and consume other lifeforms in order to grow and essentially split herself in order to populate her species. However, the chemical that is needed to be present for an Ajran to split is not present on Earth in any form and so Ehne cannot populate her species anymore. She can only replicate her parasites.
