Neesa is a gorilla guard stationed at the village of Trion. As the fugitives originally leave the village, Galen tells Neesa that he is transferring the humans to another village. After hearing about the malaria outbreak, they return but Neesa tells them nobody is allowed to enter the village. They turn away but sneak back in. When Zoran calls the guards to arrest Virdon and Burke, Neesa arrives and decides to shoot them for entering the village illegally. They are spared when Neesa suddenly falls from his horse, dying from malaria shortly afterwards.
