Tikuk is a minor character in Horizon Zero Dawn. Tikuk is a Banuk shaman that can be found at the Banuk Encampment.


Tikuk was the first to stumble upon the area that would become the Banuk Encampment. During a snowstorm, he was drawn to the area by the song of a Thunderjaw. Upon arriving at the source, he found the machine seemingly docile. Understanding that no harm would come to him, Tikuk took shelter beneath it. After him, more Banuk came to experience the peacefulness of the machines that wandered into the area.


Tikuk has a dislike for the Oseram, disagreeing with how they view machines and stating that they do not understand the balance between man and machine.
