- “Well, the Atlawa and Kane need no help.”
Art lead of A New Beginning, Jared Pullen, figured that a somewhat Mayan influence seemed appropriate for the proud and independent character of Kane. What began as a four legged Llama, resulted in the final character design for Kane. The character animators referred to him as 'that chicken-lama' whenever Kane was mentioned. Jared created a back story and mythos for Kane, but it was never used in the story.
Kane was introduced as proud and independent, refusing any help even when he was imprisoned. He was initially doubtful of Spyro's abilities at first, but soon grew to realize that Spyro can help him save his tribe.
When Spyro arrived on Tall Plains, he rescued Kane from Cynder's forces, but the Atlawa was bitter towards the purple dragon as he claimed he didn't need any help before moving on his own to save his tribe. Spyro ran into Kane a couple of times, and even saved his life, but he still showed hostility towards Spyro. After Spyro saved his people and freed Cyril, Kane realized that he was wrong about taking care of things alone, and Spyro became a part of their tribe.
