Ardik is a minor character in Horizon Zero Dawn. He is a Banuk hunter aspiring to rise the Hunters Lodge ranks from fledgling to Thrush. He becomes a Thrush at the same time as Aloy, however it is not known who his Hawk is.
Ardik initially treats Aloy as a less able hunter than himself; however as she brings in more trophies, he becomes increasingly more respectful to her, even admitting that Aloy is the better hunter after she helps Talanah take down Redmaw.
