Percy was one of the Orangutans who were freed during the Ape Rebellion. He later survived the battle and lived with his people in Muir Woods Park.
War for the Planet of the ApesEdit
Later at the labor camp, Percy accidentally drops a branch and is whipped by Red as punishment before Caesar yells at him to stop. Colonel McCullough ordered Preacher and the Donkeys to bring both him and Caesar to him, then orders Red to whip Caesar until it became too much for him. He then told Caesar to put his apes back to work, but Caesar told him they need food and water. The colonel told him again, and Caesar said they need food and water, enraging the colonel to pull out his gun and shoot Percy in the head, killing him.
Percy is very kind, caring and loyal toward Caesar and considers him their leader. His devotion to Caesar is stronger than most, as seen when he was one of the few apes to welcome Caesar back with open arms after leaving them. And after Caesar defended Percy from being whipped again, he was filled with admiration for his leader and later his spirit started to break seeing Caesar whipped as well.
