In the core series games

Dendra is a energetic person and will use that energy while teaching. She always refers the player as "new kid". She gives the player a sandwich as a way of saying thanks, but the sandwich was not appetizing. While she is athletic, she admits that she's not good at making sandwiches, often with too much protein. The player visits Dendra in Home Ec Room. She was there for "intensive training", while Saguaro was her mentor. Once again she give the player a sandwich, which was much to be desired. She'll learn more from Saguaro. Afterwards, the player visits the Nurse's Office where they met both Miriam and Dendra. They were in a bit of a disagreement, Dendra offers Miriam a sandwich she made after her "intensive training," but refuse to eat it. Miriam didn't want to get stomachaches from eating previous sandwiches made from Dendra. Convinced by the player, Miriam tries her sandwich. It wasn't bad. Finally, the player can visit Dendra in the School Store. Her reasons for the "intensive training" was to say thanks for everything Miriam has done for her. Miriam is nice and skilled that she really look up to her. Though she isn't skilled at making sandwiches, she'll focus on being full on energy.

Dendra also participates in Academy Ace Tournament.
