The word Ape (or monkey) described various species of non-sentient creatures, humanoid in shape. The facial traits of the Sanyassans were often described as being "ape-like" or "simian". The Ferijia system was home to a race of apes.
Behind the scenesEdit
In real life, the words "ape" and "monkey" cannot be used interchangeably; the former describes a class of large and tailless primates, while the latter refers to smaller creatures having a tail and cheek pouches, among other differences. In Star Wars literature, however, the two names have been used alternatively—the Sanyassans have been described as both "monkeylike" and "ape-like".
