About

Cannibalistic apes. Bar tangi are muscle bound apes that stand about 7 to 8 feet tall. Their barrel chests and long limbs are covered in russet brown wiry hair. They have thick skulls with a prominent sagittal crest and heavy brow ridges. The mouth of a bar tangi is filled with sharp teeth that they employ when a victim is immobilized in their powerful grasp. They can walk upright on their hind legs, but shift to a shambling, knuckle walking gait when moving quickly.

Intelligent and capable. The Bar tangi are intelligent, but exceptionally primitive and move in small family groups, clans, or tribes. This intelligence and community orientation have allowed them to be trained and domesticated so that they serve as effective bodyguards and companions.

Vicious hunters and fighters. Due to their intelligence, tribal instincts, and ability to comprehend the rudiments of language, bar tangi are vicious hunters and fighters who are known to use relatively advanced tactics when closing in on prey.
