More than ape, less than man, he is apen, a sage among the most clever of his kind. The wizened ones call him Jotha, and his ancestors came down from cold high altitude climates where the sun was not as influential. Eventually Jotha moved south, where the sun had a stronger influence, peppering his skin with spots and turning his hair color a dark auburn. Jotha has now adapted to an urban lifestyle in the nation called America, specifically the swampy forests of Florida. There Jotha sits behind his black box, spreading information into the cosmos one random thought at a time.
