Vendi was a hunter who lived in Senntisten during the Second Age.
Vendi was one of the most renowned hunters in Senntisten during the Second Age. They were able to track and hunt anything down, but they made a lone exception for Dagannoth. The Zarosian Church, wishing to bring the dagannoth into the fray, asked Vendi to hunt some so they could breed them, but they refused. As a result, the Zarosian Church simply commissioned less experienced hunters and the dagannoth were bred in less than optimal facilities and released into the wild. This caused a surge of Dagannoth near the city that threatened its safety, so the Church returned to Vendi to track a potential Dagannoth Mother.
Vendi found the Dagannoth mother after two days of tracking and pleaded with the Church to spare them. Due to their reputation, the Church gave them three days to do so. Vendi found that the mother was guarded by a Dagannoth Rex and created a trap, using poisoned meat bait. When they revealed themselves to the pair, the rex charged at them, inflicting injuries before succumbing to the poisoned meat it ate. This put the mother in a rage, allowing Vendi to trap and release her to the ocean. Vendi was hailed a hero and given the title "Destroyer of Dagannoth", ensuring a statue of themselves at Senntisten's hero section of the graveyard. Despite their role, Vendi was regretful at having killed the Dagannoth Rex, even on their deathbed and hoped that it would forgive them in the afterlife.
