- - Rodney
Rodney worked at the San Bruno Primate Facility, run by John Landon. Landon's son, Dodge, bullied both Rodney and the ape inmates. Rodney remained neutral towards the apes believing that Dodge was cruel to the apes. However, Dodge would rudely ignore Rodney's advice on how to treat them. Even later on, Dodge was blaming Rodney for stealing his cookies.
When Caesar was in the playground where he was not supposed to be, Rodney was ordered to get a tranquilizer gun to end the fight. Rodney saw Caesar and Dodge fight, then he was traumatized that Caesar spoke, "Noooooo!!" and was too freaked out to tranquilize him. After the apes revolt, Rodney found the apes freed from their cages and attempted to flee, but the apes captured him and beat him until Caesar stopped them, knowing Rodney to be a kinder human than Dodge, and locked him in his own cage instead. Rodney then witnessed Caesar killing off Dodge Landon through electrocution. Rodney may have been exposed to the residual of the fatal ALZ-113 drug while in the cage overnight. He was freed by Caroline Aranha. Will Rodman asked Rodney how the apes had escaped from the facility; Rodney only stated that Caesar spoke, which he was so traumatized by that he could not explain anything else. Will, Caroline and Landon later watched the CCTV recording of the apes' escape.
