Tendai was going to be voiced by Phil LaMarr, but this wasn't true so Samuel L. Jackson voiced him.
Tendai is very overprotective of his son Kai. He teaches his son Kai flying lessons to capture a lizard. He is later captured by the marabou storks and Kai and his allies began rescuing him being caged by the storks.
Tendai and Kai are later seen returning to Zambezia after defeating Budzo and his army of lizards, which makes his father reform to Kai as a misunderstanding.
