Erend, along with his sister Ersa and an Oseram named Dervahl, fought against the Carja during the Red Raids. Erend admitted that the hated the Carja for the Red Raids, although his attitude changed after Ersa was rescued by Avad, a Carja prince who had grown appalled with his father's atrocities.
Visiting the Nora
Erend joined a Carja delegation to the Nora in order to establish peace between the Sundom and the Sacred Lands. Their visit was met with protest, as the Nora remained distrustful of the Carja and remembered their role in the Red Raids. When the Nora began pelting the Sun-Priest with tomatoes, Erend quickly came to his defense and calmly talked the Nora down by telling of his role in the overthrow of the Mad Sun-King and Avad's altruism. Afterward, Erend met Aloy and tried to flirt with her.
After the delegation returned to Meridian, Erend was devastated to learn that Ersa had been murdered.
By the time Aloy arrived to Meridian, Erend met her again and helped lead her to Olin's home. While en route, Erend noticed a man attracting a small crowd talking about Ersa's murder. This infuriated Erend, who then threatened the man before dispersing the crowd. When Erend and Aloy investigated Olin's home, Erend learned more about Aloy's tracking skills with her Focus and begged for her help to find the truth behind Ersa's murder. Aloy accepted his request and they traveled to the scene of Ersa's murder, where they were suddenly attacked by Oseram--the culprits behind Ersa's death. After defeating their attackers, the duo soon deduced that Ersa wasn't murdered, but had been captured.
Battle for the Spire
After Ersa's death, Erend took her place as leader of the Vanguard. Along the rest of the Vanguard, Erend joined the forces to protect the Spire from the Eclipse's next onslaught. While the Eclipse were able to break through the defenses, Erend survived, and was one of three soldiers who fought alongside Aloy, helping her break through HADES's defenses and prevent life from being wiped out again.
