"I'm just a traveler, with a bow, a concern about the state of these lands and a missing partner."
―Nil, introducing himself to Aloy
Nil is a character and potential ally in Horizon Zero Dawn. He can be found waiting outside bandit camps and invites Aloy to raid the camps with him when their paths cross.

History

A former Carja soldier who fought under the Mad Sun-King Jiran, Nil confessed to war crimes following the Liberation and spent two years in Sunstone Rock for his crimes.

Nil fought in two significant battles, the Battle of the Daunt and a battle at Cinnabar Sands where there apparently were no survivors. His role in both these battles is unclear.
