In Her Mother's Footsteps is a side quest in Horizon Zero Dawn. A wounded Nora hunter pleads for Aloy to find his daughter, who tracked a dangerous machine to retrieve a beloved family heirloom.


An injured Nora father, Thok, asks for Aloy's assistance in finding his daughter, Arana, who has gone in solitary pursuit of her mother's spear embedded in a Scrapper.

The spear, made by Thok's deceased wife and Arana's mother, Edena, becomes lodged into a Scrapper after Thok fails to defeat it. Given the sentimental value of the spear and despite her father's protests, Arana sets out to retrieve the spear.

While searching for his daughter, Thok's leg gives out, rendering him unable to continue. After stumbling upon him, he asks Aloy for her assistance.

Aloy finds Arana stranded on a platform with four Watchers prowling below. After taking out the watchers, Arana jumps down to thank Aloy. Agreeing to get the spear back herself, she sends Arana back to her father. Using her Focus, Aloy follows Arana's steps to just outside of Mother's Cradle. From there Aloy picks up the trail of the Scrapper, following it across a river and to a herd of other Scrappers and Watchers.

Once defeating the machines and recovering Arana's spear from the Scrapper, Aloy returns to Arana and Thok to receive their gratitude.
