Konag is the garrison commander in Chatka. When his troopers spot a flying human and recover the glider, he reports personally to Urko and the Council. They decide to send Carsia to investigate and the two are at odds from the start. Carsia does nothing to disguise her hatred of gorillas and her attitude annoys Konag. He tries repeatedly to have the flight experiment abandoned, but ultimately chooses to have Galen and Leuric fly the glider, as they are to be shot anyway.
- Konag wears the uniform of the rank of 'captain'.
