Bili apes are larger apes with great physical strength and vigor, known to have excellent dexterity and even capable of making primitive but well built weapons like their spears and javelins with obsidian heads. They prowl the forests, bamboo growth and great fields of elephant grass stalking their prey and they are known to rule over lesser apes. They are rumored to be able to even speak but this is hinted at mimicking simple words like "help" to attract their prey deeper into the wilderness. Bili apes are famous for climbing tall trees and waiting to ambush their foes which they leap from with their deadly spears braced, delivering a powerful impaling blow like that of a feudal knight charging into battle on his trusted warhorse.
