The Gorilla King
male dire ape
Of all the dangers living in the vast Expanse, the Spawn of Angazhan and their leader, Ruthazek the Gorilla King, are some of the most terrifying. Under Ruthazek’s iron fist, charau-ka, girallons (both low and high), and awakened apes like gorillas and chimpanzees serve the demon lord’s bloodthirsty will with a cold, cruel intelligence. Though the Gorilla King rules from Usaro, his minions are everywhere, and those who run afoul of a hunting party are likely to find themselves immediately devoured, if they’re lucky, or else hauled back to the city of the demon-apes for even more terrible torments.
