Ardik is a Banuk hunter aspiring to rise through the Hunters Lodge ranks from fledgling to Thrush. He eventually becomes a Thrush at the same time as Aloy, although it is not clear which Hawk has sponsored him.
Ardik initially treats Aloy as a less capable hunter than himself; however as she brings in more trophies, he becomes increasingly more respectful of her, even admitting that Aloy is the better hunter after she helps Talanah take down Redmaw.
