Before the Proving Massacre, Cren was cast out by the High Matriarchs for stealing a bow. He was injured while training at the Nora Hunting Grounds, preparing for his new life as an outcast in the wilds. During a Trial, his bowstring snapped while he was trying to shoot a Blaze canister from the back of a Grazer, which resulted in him getting injured. He explains the premise of the Hunting Grounds to Aloy and suggests she visit the Keeper to try them for herself.
- Cren has the same face design as Jun, a Nora whom Aloy encounters during Insult to Injury; both are based on a facial scan of actor Eddy Paños de Los Angeles.
