Kurnst is a minor character in Horizon Zero Dawn.


Kurnst was outcast from the Nora tribe for beating a man who stole from him. He leads a small group of outcasts who, despite Nora customs, have banded together in the wilds for survival. With the rising threats of machines and bandits, the group turned to taking Dreamwillow from the Brave trails and leaving shards at the caches as a form of payment.
