About Homeworld Homeworld Chozo is the original unified Chozo language. It was spoken on the Chozo Homeworld before a mass migration to Zebes and the subsequent mass overhaul of the language into what then became  Zebesian Chozo. It is the primary inspiration of the spoken conlang used by the Chozo on Tallon IV,  Talloric Chozo.
