Aloy was found outside All-Mother's mountain door by Matriarch Teersa. While Teersa saw Aloy as a gift from the All-Mother herself, many in the tribe saw Aloy as a curse that was brought down upon them. She did not have a mother when she was found, which solidified her status as an outcast. Despite being outcasts, Rost put a lot of value onto the tribe's rituals and held a naming ritual for Aloy, with the help of Matriarch Teersa. The Matriarchs granted Rost guardianship of her, whom she grew up with throughout her childhood as he trained and took care of her.
