Location: Civilized Area
Height/Weight: That of an average human.
Summary: There must be something better than man. A paraphrasing of some pretty nasty foreshadowing. This is where you probably got most of your ape-related catchphrases. If you haven't come here with some modicum of respect for your simian neighbors, well then, take your stinking paws off here, you damn dirty-oh, now you got us doing it.
History: We'll just recap based on the time travelling that happened midway. Before that, we got a glimpse of the future, where man's role as the dominant species was overtaken by apes, and the rest of the world ravaged by nuclear war. Among those apes were Dr. Zaius, the Minister of Science and Chief Defender of the Faith, and the pair of married apes, Cornelius and Zira. The humans of this future are slaves and/or prisoners. And when things ultimately get worse (as in, the utter destruction of the planet due to a bunch of atom bomb worshipping ninnies), Cornelius and Zira manage to somehow travel back in time to undo the catastrophe. But they are separated from their son, Milo, due to them being killed off by paranoid authorities. Milo is soon taken under the wing of a circus, and finds a new name. Caesar. A name fit for a king...
Notable Kills: Nothing special.
Final Fate: Sick of watching his fellow apes under the tyrannical thrall of man, Caesar instigates a revolution that ultimately results in nuclear war. But unlike the previous timeline, which ends with a nuclear bomb wiping out the Earth to spite Zaius, Caesar's efforts ended with ape and man co-existing peacefully.
Powers/Abilities: For their species, they are quite intelligent.
Weakness: Anything conventional.
Scariness Factor: 4-While it was ultimately ourselves that ravaged society, these apes put up a good fight. It doesn't help that their faces vaguely resemble our own, but in a way that pushes them straight into the uncanny valley. Of course, the costumes look a bit cheaper as the films go on.
Trivia: -Out of most of the ape cast, the more famous actor of them was Roddy McDowall (as Caesar), who also played a number of award-winning roles, including one in the film "Cleopatra".
-The ape with the most intelligence recorded (aside from humanity) is the orangutan, which can solve puzzles quickly, and even use makeshift spears to catch fish. Fittingly, Dr. Zaius is an orangutan.
