Background

The jungles of Tanzania were awash in rebels. Laird Angus MacTaggart, MI-6 and his trusty Sergeant-Major Percy Higgins-Clark of the SAS were running for their lives after a botched attempt at propping up a local chieftain against the rebels. Neither man knew exactly where they were, but knew that the rebels weren't too far behind.

A shout, quickly followed by a gun-toting rebel came out of the bush, his weapon trained on the two Brits. An evil smile crossed the rebel's dark face as he took aim. However, before he was able to pull the trigger a bundle of fur and fangs flew out the jungle slamming into the rebel driving him to the ground. The two struggled for awhile, but then there was a loud crack and the rebel lay motionless.

Standing over the crumpled corpse, the ape looked at his hands and said something under his breath. He had heard about the unusual apes of this part of Africa, but he had never met one, until now. He wasn't even sure that they even existed. Uberprimates, or unerapes.

"Right. Well, laddie it would seem tha ya don saved Ol' Percie's life, an meself. Right. So let us be off now. Chin up and all that rot. Stiff upper lip an all," said MacTaggart.

"Right O, my Laird," said Sergeant-Major Higgins-Clark.

The gorilla looked at the two humans. Shouldering their weapons the two Brits plunged back into the thick of the jungle. Trailing behind them was the gorilla. It took the three of them two days to reach the alternate rendezvous site where a plane was waiting for them to take them back to England.

However, just before the Brits were going to board the plane a band of rebels came out the jungle, automatic weapons ablaze. MacTaggart got the pilot to fire up the plane and it started to taxi down the runway. Angus noticed that the gorilla would be killed by the rebels if he didn't do anything, so he reached out of the plane and yelled: "Gimme yor hann. Tha's right, get yor arse in here!"

With a Herculean effort the Brit pulled the ape into the plane with automatic weapon fire playing all around them.

Twenty Years Later

Sitting at the Spotted Scotsman Pub in Islington, a large gorilla wearing a tuxedo sipped at a vodka martini. Sitting next to him wearing a leather jump suit was an attractive woman drinking a single malt whiskey.

"A toast to the old man," said the woman.

"Right O," said the gorilla.

They drank silently for a moment, before sitting back and reminiscing about Laird Angus MacTaggart. Since rescuing Jafari Banana from the rebels, MacTaggart had helped Jafari gain citizenship in the United Kingdom. Eventually, he was even able to help Jafari gain entry into the much vaunted MI-6. For several years after that Jafari and MacTaggart worked together as a team.

Then came the shooting in Belize where MacTaggart was wounded in his leg. While the two were able complete the mission, that was the end of MacTaggart's career. He was retired from the service and went back to Scotland. As for Percy Higgins-Clark, he was still with the SAS, having raised to the rank of Brigadier General. Often times Jafari and he would play golf together.

As for Jafari he continued to work for MI-6, but eventually grew tired of the secret service. After MacTaggart retired, Jafari and MacTaggart's daughter, Pamela Lee talked about old times and decided that Jafari would do well representing the British Spirit by joining Knightwatch.

Personality

Jafari was quite young when he first met Angus MacTaggart. As such the Brit left an indelible mark on Jafari's psyche. Now instead of thinking of himself as an intelligent ape out of Africa, he thinks of himself only as a subject of the United Kingdom. Jafari always act in the matter of a British citizen, which he is, but sometimes to an extreme.

Like most spies from MI-6 Jafari is quietly patriotic. There's nothing he wouldn't do for the crown, but he certainly wouldn't advertise it. He's British after all. It's mainly due to his patriotism that Jafari wanted to join with Knightwatch to further serve the crown.

Even though Jafari has the power to take someone's life, he has always tried his best to find another way of handling it. The paperwork was always too much anyway. Usually a toothy smile is all it takes to get results for Agent Ape.

Quote

“The name's Banana. Jafari Banana."

Powers

Like all uberprimates, Jafari is an exceptional ape. He is naturally limber with a lot of grace, and like most apes, Jafari can climb the most sheerest surfaces with ease. In addition to his climbing ability, Jafari's sense of hearing and smell are quite acute. Jafari is strong in both arms and legs, easily exceeding the strongest human agents, and his powerful legs allow him to run and jump over long distances with ease.

Being a spy as long as he has has taught Jafari about offence and defense. Offensively, Jafari was born with an impressive set of fangs and claws. Fortunately Jafari hasn't killed many people during his tenure with MI-6. Also like most spies, Jafari packs a little firepower, but like his fangs, he's reluctant to use it. Defensively Jafari usually wears a reinforced tuxedo that provides him some protection from attacks.

His years as a spy has taught Jafari a number of tricks. Almost no place is safe from this wily ape. Nor is it easy to evade Jafari when Agent Ape is on your trail. And Jafari is known to get really lucky at times, but just as likely for things to go wrong as well.

Appearance

Jafari is a handsome specimen of gorilla. He keeps his hair groomed to perfection. Like most gorilla's he naturally stands in a stooped position. Muscles seem to constantly ripple when he moves. While Jafari has a number of different clothes that are especially made for him, his favourite is his tuxedo. Hidden under his right armpit is his trusty Walther PPK. Since Jafari is so big there isn't even a bulge. Also whenever wearing his tuxedo, Jafari has always made it a habit to wear a carnation in his lapel as well. While very particular about his clothes, Jafari doesn't wear shoes.
