The player character is Scout, a lone wanderer schooled in the art of wilderness survival. She's seen a bit of everything as she's come of age, and knows how to deal with the challenges of staying alive in a land that isn't interested in helping. Aesop is her companion and beast of burden. In the game, Scout will learn to survive on and near the River which is where the game primarily takes place. For this she will need The Raft.
