DESCRIPTION

The dire ape once served a druid as a charmed slave. But when the pair came upon a ruined temple devoted to the demon lord of the jungle, a hateful intelligence magically awoke in his mind. He turned on his mistress, tearing her limb from limb as he realized she had held him as little more than a slave. Driven to sacrifice the elf on the long-disused altar, the newly awakened dire ape took the name “Eater of Elves.”
