Horizon Wiki

"If the Goddess spoke, it must be so."

Jezza is a minor character in Horizon Zero Dawn. She is one of the three ruling High Matriarchs of the Nora tribe.


Acting as leaders for the Nora in both political and religious matters, as High Matriarchs Jezza, alongside Teersa and Lansra, aim to lead the tribe through many crises and situations, following the customs of the All-Mother and presiding over many difficult decisions.

She is among those who oversaw the blessing of the Proving the year that Aloy rejoined the tribe, and she appointed Aloy as a Seeker, siding with Teersa against Lansra over the matter.

Because she is a High Matriarch, it is assumed that Jezza has living children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.


Jezza appears to be level-headed and more tolerant than Lansra, showing compassion to Aloy when she is anointed a Seeker. She has great reverence for All-Mother and the traditions of the Nora.
