She'll ride the Strider through the gate, quick as it can go.

Permalink

She bursts out very nearly on top of a fight between several Braves and a corrupted Sawtooth - just as one of the Braves drives her spear deep into a gap at its neck, killing it. It's the only opponent that big, though there's still two corrupted Watchers charging up attacks. 

Permalink

Whoops well she can run down the Watchers at least.

Permalink

Apparently when it's Strider versus Watcher, the Strider wins hands-down - her mount spins and kicks the first Watcher when she gets in range, throwing it into the other, and then charges them just to make sure they stay down. They're not quite dead yet, but Aloy can finish them off pretty easily.

That worked out pretty good!

Permalink

"How are you doing that?!" the Brave who took down the Sawtooth asks, voice somewhere between 'wary,' 'impressed,' and 'calculating.'

Permalink

"With style and grace!" Aloy says, patting her mount's neck.

Permalink

She looks a little amused, despite herself. "Thanks for the graceful help, then," she says. "You're the Brave that won the Proving, right?"

Permalink

"That's me," she says. "Aloy."

"...The survivors told us about - what you did. Thank you."

Permalink

"...Yeah."

Permalink

 

"...Do you mind one more heroic favor?"

Permalink

"For a pretty girl? No problem."

"It's about Warchief Sona. She and some Braves are still pursuing the killers."

Permalink

"Which way did they go?"

Permalink

"Last we saw her was after the massacre. A pack of crazed machines fell on the War Party, dripping that - red corruption. War Chief Sona called for volunteers, sent the wounded and a few others back here, and she kept pursuing the killers. But that was... Days ago. We haven't had any word since - not even the wounded trickling back."

"I can show you the massacre site on a map. You'll have to track them from there, though."

Permalink

"I'm pretty good at tracking."

Permalink

"You'll need it."

Permalink

"What's your name, by the way?"

Permalink

"I'm Vala."

Permalink

"Oh, I was supposed to ask you about the way to Meridian."

Permalink

She looks like she's about to say something, then pauses and squints at Aloy's forehead. "...The High Matriarchs made you a Seeker?"

Permalink

"They did."

Permalink

"Why do you need to go to Meridian?"

Permalink

"One of the guests before the Proving, Olin. He's working with the killers. I'm going to find him and get some answers."
