"Hey! Attitude, pink-skin. I've done you no grief. I am, in fact, about to do you a favor. You're looking for a commission?"
"Yeah, what of it?"
"Well, a commission is looking for you."
―Kendo and Dash Rendar[src]

Kendo was a Rodian male who worked as a bartender in Chalmun's Cantina in the city Mos Eisley on the planet Tatooine during the reign of the Galactic Empire. In 0 BBY, while Kendo was tending the bar he directed the down-on-his-luck smuggler Dash Rendar, who was seeking work, to the holostar Javul Charn and her manager Kendara Farlion, who had ventured to the cantina in search of a bodyguard.
