"I thought I knew what it was to be Banuk. Turns out it's more complicated."
Inatut is a minor character in Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds, he is the composite character of the side quest Frontier Justice. He is his werak's best fighter, aiming either to win or to make appearances by losing.


Inatut was found by Aloy in Song's Edge during preparation of his exile, a punishment for a murder that he had been accused of. He claimed innocence, albeit he admitted that he got into a fight with the supposed victim, a Carja outlander named Ruwas, the night before whilst he was drunk.

Aloy investigated the crime scene and tracked the real killers, who are in fact Banuk hunters who bore vengeful hatred against the Carja for what they did during the Mad Sun-King Jiran's rule.

However, Inatut was exiled before Aloy could return, forcing her to find him in the northwestern edge of the Cut in a frigid region known as the Cloud-Shear. Aloy brought a set of Carja gear for the almost-naked Inatut to wear and they fought off attacking Machines before returning to Song's Edge.

Inatut came back to the village, furious at the judgement of his chieftain and shaman who refuse to admit their mistake, criticizing their views of Banuk values in his rant. After his anger subsided, Inatut would ask Aloy what he should do, to which the player decides the answer.

Should the confrontation option be chosen in the flashpoint, he can be found at the base of the Spire during The Looming Shadow, possibly standing side-by-side with Aratak and Aluki, still clad in Carja armor.


Inatut seems to be simple-minded at first, showing little defense for his actions and worrying more about his chances in muscling matters out: the only solution he understood thus far.

However, after the conclusion of his quest, Inatut seems to be thinking more than he has been, capable of criticizing the tradition he lived by and questioning the purpose he should be fighting for afterwards. However, he still admits to be not much of a thinker before the final battle, telling Aloy that he "Has always been over his head."
