Nothing is known about Cola's early life. Despite his stout build, Cola presented himself as a tough opponent. As a combatant, Cola prefered to fight in close proximity, however he knew how to handle himself with a bow and arrow. His history as a quick-footed warrior caught the eyes of the Order and thus he was inducted into the Zealots. As part of his notoriety, Cola's motto went, "Blood speaks true." Within the Order, Cola also provided an emergency messenger service for the Order member, The Adze
In his rounds, Kendall patrolled the area around the Sudwella Monastery in northern Ledecestre as well along the rivers surrounding the regions of Ledecestrescire, Lincolnscire, and Eurviscire. It was during one such patrol that he was hunted down and killed by the Viking Eivor, who was allied with the Hidden Ones. Afterwards, Eivor found a clue among Cola's personal effects. The clue, revealing the title, The Adze, showed that Eivor needed to defeat the drinking champion in the Roman Ruins within Ledecestre.
- Like other Zealots, Cola had unique fighting methods and items in his weaponry. Upon Eivor's instigation, Cola was equipped with an bow and arrow, attacked with proximity incendiary devices, and packed rations to heal himself within battle.
- For The Adze, Cola has the same clue as The Dart, whom Eivor assassinated along her journey.
