You know the scary thing about them? They don't need power, lights, heat, nothing. That's their advantage. That's what makes them strong.
— Foster to Malcolm's Group about the Apes

Foster is a character that appears in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. He was a survivor of the Simian Flu and a member of Malcolm's Group.


Dawn of the Planet of the ApesEdit

Encounter with apesEdit

Foster was a survivor of the global Simian Flu Pandemic. He is first seen among Malcolm's Group and run over to Carver while pointing his gun at two apes before Caesar and the other apes arrive and shout (in English) for them to leave ape territory.

Working on the damEdit

Foster returns to the forest with EllieMalcolmAlexander, Carver and a few others to convince Caesar to allow them to generate electricity from the dam. Once, Caesar allows the humans to stay (after forcing them to give up their guns) he and the others discuss the apes. He then scolds and threatens Carver for coldly bringing up the deaths of Malcolm's first wife and Ellie's little daughter. Foster stays with the group, and is present where he is shown smiling as Caesar's infant son interacts with Ellie and Alexander.

When Carver threatens both of Caesar's sons, the apes demand that group leave Ape Territory but this decision is overturned by Malcolm and Ellie who help tend to the illness of Caesar's wife. The apes even promise to help the humans out but on the condition that Carver leaves, to which Foster happily decides to do himself. Forcibly sending Carver back to the car they arrived in while saying "See you tomorrow Asshole".

Fleeing from the apesEdit

Foster and the others with the help of the apes then proceed to work on the dam. He pays witness to Caesar horribly beating up Koba for his insolence and watching the power in Human Colony being restored. When Koba shoots Caesar and frames Carver (thereby framing the humans), Foster flees with the others. His fate is unknown but he was presumably killed as he (and another member of Malcolm's group) fled in the direction the apes went in for the city. Also by morning; only Ellie, Malcolm, and Alexander hid and were they only ones who seemed to survive among the group.

Unknown fateEdit

His car was still in the woods leading to the possibility he was either killed or escaped into the deeper parts of the forest.


Foster is both amazed and terrified of the apes, as he knows what they are capable of, however, unlike Carver, he (correctly) never blamed or hated the apes for wiping out most of the human race, as Foster knows full well that the Simian Flu was created by humans.



Malcolm asks about Will

Carver, a former member of Malcolm's group who hates the apes.

Carver was a former member of Malcolm's Group.

Foster did not have much interaction with Carver, however, it became obvious that Foster did not get along with Carver at all. When Carver used the deaths of Malcolm's first wife and Ellie's young daughter as reasons to hate the apes for causing the Simian Flu outbreak, he became so disgusted that he threatened to beat up Carver, if the latter did not stop his nonsense.

At the dam, he was enraged/horrified when Carver threatened Caesar's two sons which ruined the peaceful moment between the apes and humans which also caused Caesar to become angry and nearly thrown the humans out of the woods. Foster on Malcolm's orders, forcibly drag and lock Carver in one of the cars they arrived in, while saying "See you tomorrow Asshole". Unknown to Foster, this would be the last time he would see him alive, as Carver was later killed by Koba.
