To make Aloy a little more realistic, they made sure that her body type was not designed to look “unreal” and “exaggerated” like other female characters.

Instead, they designed for Aloy the very realistic body expected of a real person with active and strong physique.

He also has an incredible will, because he has done things that he knew were right, even if society thought they were wrong.
