Tarkas is a mentioned-only character in Horizon Zero Dawn. He was a Hawk of the Hunters Lodge, and the sponsor of Talanah.

History

Tarkas was a Hawk with ties to the noble Brativin Khane Padish. When Brativin's daughter Talanah decided to join the Lodge, Tarkas chose to sponsor her out of loyalty to her family despite harsh resistance from some members of the Lodge, who opposed allowing a woman to rise in their ranks.

During the Spring of the third year of Avad's reign, the legendary Thunderjaw known as Redmaw was sighted near Thunderhead. Tarkas set off after the monstrous machine without his Thrush, Talanah (it is suspected that Ahsis failed to inform Talanah in order to maintain his position). When she finally caught up with him, he was mortally wounded, and Redmaw was escaping. However, she testified that Tarkas' spear was still lodged in the machine's armor.[1]
