Caesar's Council of Apes is a council formed by Caesar that creates the rules that the apes abide by. It may also
Caesar's Council of Apes (CE)
make decisions on other matters of the growing colony. The council contains apes that Caesar trusts the most and has a close relationship with.



It is unknown when the Council came into existence but they appeared to have formed sometime during the ten year period after the Ape Rebellion and the birth of the Ape Village. Caesar, the Ape King and these apes overlook the lifestyle and decisions seen as best for their colony. These apes are not only some of the strongest and wisest but are also Caesar's closest friends and relatives who are the apes that he puts only the utmost trust and faith in.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

When humans are rediscovered in the woods and one of them shoots Ash (the son of Rocket) the council discusses the matter of what to do about this new potential threat. At night, the Apes have a heated argument with a majority of apes wanting to go to war with the humans while the rest pitch in the risks of not doing so such as the number of humans or guns and why the humans came to the woods in the first place. Tensions began to rise ending with Caesar yelling at them to stop and list the reasons for not going to war before stating the apes could lose everything they worked so hard to create. The Ape King said he would make a decision by the morning ending the meeting. After the meeting Koba went to speak with Caesar telling him his years of torment with humans and how Caesar freed him but says they must show a sign of strength to the humans to which the king said they would.

War for the Planet of the Apes

At some point, Winter joined the council. A meeting was held between the group to decide where they would flee from the human soldiers, who were advancing on their position daily. Blue Eyes and Rocket proposed fleeing to a desert, believing the soldiers wouldn't dare follow that far. Winter spoke out that they should flee by the night, but the group protested thst it would be risky given the sheer mass they would have to transfer so quickly. After Blue Eyes calmed Winter down, Caesar stated they would first figure out a safe route for the women and children before going through with the plan.
