The Grand Hunt R2 - Aloy (Horizon Zero Dawn) vs. Professor Pyg


Recommended Posts

The Grand Hunt

Round TWO

Capture or Kill the Target: (Professor Pyg)

 

Outside Madison Square Garden

 

Aloy wasn’t sure what to expect from this Grand Hunt, but she never imagined five foot reptiles trying to eat her alive.

She finally caught her breath as she overlooked the grim site of Madison Square Garden now overrun with the hungry reptiles. She had killed plenty on her way out of the building, and killed quite a few more escorting the civilians that were stuck in there with her. But she didn’t have nearly enough arrows for that size horde. Aloy just hoped she passed the test.

Just as the thought occurred to her, a message appeared through her Focus.

CONGRATULATIONS ON PASSING THE FIRST ROUND. NOW FOR YOUR FIRST TARGET. BRING THEM IN DEAD OR ALIVE!

“Dead or alive?” Aloy thought this was strange. She wasn’t a mercenary and if she was going to be forced to kill people…

Below the message read details of the supposed target along with his image. Professor Pyg. Wanted for breaking from an asylum and the murder of several figures in the city of Gotham. His crimes also included mutilation and cruelty towards animals. His known location was a hideout that he was using as a workshop for his next move.

“Well, if this is what it takes to compete then I guess I’ll have to take down a few criminals. Doesn’t sound too bad. It better not include anymore giant lizards though,” said Aloy, who accepted the mission and was magicked away instantly.

 

Professor Pyg’s Hideout, Outskirts of Gotham City

Aloy’s senses took a jolt. One second she was in a damp city in the rain, now she was in a dark and humid forest. Instincts taught her to immediately get low and stay out of sight.

“Damn that stung. Guess the Commissioner does have a few tricks up his sleeve. Going to have to watch that,” Aloy said to herself as she hugged the base of a tree.

After a few moments she got her bearings. She wasn’t in immediate danger but if she had a good guess, she knew where to find it. Just ahead she could hear some kind of metallic racket. Perhaps a saw? She wasn’t sure.

Her weapons and supplies were instantly restocked. She didn’t even feel fatigued from the prior mission, which was a relief. More tricks of the Commissioner.

“Okay well, let’s get this over with,” Aloy kept her bow at the ready and started towards the sound, staying low. It came from a wooden home just on the other end of the woods in a small clearing. Dim lantern lights shown from inside through its windows. Guess this was Pyg’s hideout.

Aloy kept her crouch and circled the building as if it were a bandit camp. Her Focus gave her all the intel she needed. Entry points, exits, weapons, and Pyg himself. He was at his workbench… sharpening blades and saws with delight. Actually he was laughing under his breath.

“This will show those bats that I’m not afraid of them…” she heard him say through her Focus.

Hanging from the wall were pig carcasses and… one young man. He was still alive.

“Oh shit. Okay then…,” If she needed more proof that this man deserved justice, she had it. Aloy climbed up the building. She needed to get this right to save the hostage.

She found a hole to slip through in the roof and entered. Once inside, she kept to the rafters out of sight until she was above Professor Pyg.

He was still unaware of her, just the way she planned.

Aloy drew back her bow. It was time to catch her target.

Seeing Aloy hunt down Professor Pyg would be quite satisfying. He's definitely a different foe than she's used to but I think she has a shot. 

Good set up!

Yeah I think Professor Pyg is an underrated character and an interesting villain. I wanted to see how Aloy would fair against a villain, particularly one of Batman's.

I think she gets the drop on him and gets Pyg to run. Then it'll be cat and mouse for a bit until she catches him. Combat wise, he doesn't stand a chance.
