Horizon Zero Dawn
Dr. Elisabet Sobeck
Now, Dr. Sobeck has never known her daughter – or rather, her clone – but because she was such a paragon of a human being that it was deemed necessary to clone her, so that the tribal people of post-apocalyptic Earth can be spared the second coming of the end times. As such, Aloy spends most of the game tracking down Dr. Sobeck, learning who she was and why was she so revered by her peers. And while Dr. Sobeck passed away long before Aloy was born, her in uence has guided Aloy into becoming a morally sound person, just like she was. Talk about motherly guidance that persists even beyond death.
