Girallons were aggressive, carnivorous apes with four arms. They were incredibly strong and territorial.[1]

Description[edit | edit source]

An adult girallon was about 8 feet (240 centimeters) tall and weighed 800 pounds (360 kilograms). It appeared to be a four-armed ape with thick white fur and curved tusks in its mouth, distinguishing it from normal apes.[1]

Ecology[edit | edit source]

These beasts lived in groups led by a dominant adult, who tended to be the oldest of the group.[1]

Some primitive tribespeople were known to capture young girallons to raise them to be mounts, using many of the same techniques one would use to train an owlbear.[4]

History[edit | edit source]

In the late 15th century DR, an unusually old and massive girallon was terrorizing Port Nyanzaru in Chult. The massive beast had tough scarred white hide and unprecedented aggression. A group of heroes was tasked with slaying the beast by Jessamine, the Merchant Prince of Port Nyanzaru.[5]
