The apeman is a primitive inhabitant of Quendor. They seem to resent the fact that more developed humans have taken over much of the land that was once theirs, and will attack without warning to defend their territory.

During the Great Monster Uprising of the Second Age of Magic, apemen were reported in the following regions: Frigid River Valley, Aragain Falls, Flathead Mountains, Flathead Fjord,  The Gray Mountains, Antharian Caves, Gurth Woodland Trail, Mithicus Mountains, and the G.U.E. Tech Training Grounds in the Ethereal Plane of Atrii.
