orang-utan

yes- monkeys are funny!!! - but this is not about that....

the story just so happens to be (in parts) about the 'old man of the forest' - the midgard group and hope embark on an adventure in the forests of Indonesia, which, along with the thousands of animals and plants that live there, are facing grave danger as they are destroyed at an alarming rate due to omnicorp's massive illegal logging operation and clearing for their palm oil plantations. These tropical forests are of global importance, ranked second in terms of size to those of Brazil and covering over 406,000 square miles. The rapid deterioration of tropical forests is causing an incalculable loss in terms of biodiversity and is pushing species such as the orangutan ever closer to extinction.

this is look development for the orangutan, how he would fit within the hope-universe:
