Orendo the Scout was a Drenai soldier who fought alongside the White Wolf during the Ventrian invasion of Drenai and subsequent Drenai invasion and occupation of Ventria. A close friend of Nogusta and Bison, he deserted along with two other soldiers, Cassin and Eris, upon hearing rumours that veteran soldiers would be dismissed from the army. After deserting, the three robbed a merchant and raped his daughter, for which they were sentenced. Nogusta was ordered to find and kill them, which he did, allowing Orendo to take his own life.
