According to ancient texts, guardian apes were once ordinary apes before they were altered by magic to serve a powerful empire. When the empire collapsed, the guardian apes escaped into the forest and now gather in massive groups around the ruins of once-magnificent cities. They build simple clubs and bows that they use to hunt and in battle against foolhardy treasure hunters that would claim the riches of the ancient empire as their own.
