||Anaxial's Annex. Huge, muscular, black furred apes, gorillas never leave the shelter of the Errinoru jungles, and are rarely seen by outsiders. Adults spend most of their time on the ground, being too heavy to travel easily in the trees, although lightweight or young individuals may often do so. Despite their fearsome appearance, gorillas are inoffensive vegetarians, eating little but jungle leaves. They are active mostly during the morning and evening, rest through the day and sleep in nests made of branches and leaves during the night.
They were the second attempt by Bolongo to create a race of intelligent beings in imitation of those made by Pamalt. He made them strong, so that they could defeat their foes and rule an empire, but forgot to give them ambition, so that they did not wish to do so.
Gorillas usually travel in groups of five to ten animals, of which about half are adults, staying in a particular area for a few days before moving on. The single adult male in a group has a silver coloured back, and is significantly larger than his companions. Solitary silverback males are also encountered.
Combat Tactics: The great silverbacks will beat their chests to try and intimidate an opponent, and bare their teeth in a threatening display. If this fails, they will rush forwards, pummel with their fists, and occasionally bite, until the enemy is killed or driven off.
