The chimpanzee is a medium sized species with dark hair over most of its body. The hands, feet and face are hairless and show the skin which ranges in color from a flesh tone to a very dark brown that is almost black. The eyes are expressive under a heavy brow ridge. The nose is flat and the jaw protrudes slightly. Chimpanzees are great climbers but on land will knuckle walk unless they are carrying something.
Chimpanzees are one of the most intelligent non-playable species in Red Ash of the common animals. They not only use tools but have a very limited production of tools. For example they will hunt for the sleeping hollows of tiny mammals common to their area and fashion a spear from a branch they break off and sharpen with their teeth. They will then use the spear to repeatedly stab the area and then smell the branch for blood. Chimpanzees show a great deal of social interaction and altruism between members of the same society. Chimps from a different society are treated with indifference at best and hostility at worst. Male chimps will also patrol their territory and attack outsiders en mass. Chimps are known to laugh, play, war and mourn their dead.
Chimpanzees are lead by a alpha male. The alpha male is not always the the biggest or strongest, but is the one that can garner the most support within his society. So a alpha is the one that can influence the largest number of companions. This is not to say they do not have threat displays or fights, they do, but this may not be the deciding factor in who is the alpha male. The alpha female is also a political position but unlike the violence the is found in the male side of a society the females focus on who is best at finding food. Once an alpha female is decided they can undermine the alpha male by refusing to support him which ends up having him losing support.
Encounter Tactics
Male Chimpanzees are very aggressive and will follow the lead of an alpha male. If the alpha attacks the betas will also attack. Attacks are usually the males charging in and overpowering the opponent. They will hit, trip and grapple targets. They will use their claws to rip the face off of the enemy and also bit their fingers and toes off.
Encounter Count
1 outcast
2-15 troop of males
10-50 society
Chimpanzees are highly trainable, but can not be a mount.
