During the Mountain Daughter quest, a man impersonates the Kendal because the Mountain Tribe are scared of their gods and magic, and he desires to be left alone. He also kills Asleif, the chieftains daughter.
According to the imposter, The Kendal is the guardian of the mountain, god of the northern lands, and able to move the earth and control the skies. The Mountain Tribe planted trees to block the entrance to the cave where the imposter lives because they thought it was unwise to come too close to what they believed to be a god.
- The Kendal might be a reference to Grendel, one of three antagonists in the Anglo-Saxon epic poem Beowulf. In the poem, Grendel is feared by all but Beowulf, just as the Kendal is feared.
- Its name might come from Kendal, a town in Cumbria, England.
A † denotes that a god is deceased
