Boyle was a soldier of a paramilitary faction known as Alpha-Omega, led by Colonel J. Wesley McCullough.

Biography[]

Background[]

Boyle was a survivor of the Simian Flu Pandemic due to being genetically immune to the original strain and was among the soldiers of Alpha-Omega, working under J. Wesley McCullough during the Human-Ape War.

War for the Planet of the Apes[]

After Ceasar's entire ape colony was captured by Alpha-Omega and forced to build a defensive wall, Boyle was at the Border, among those enforcing the apes. When Percy accidentally drops a log, Boyle angrily tells Red to teach that "stupid monkey" a lesson he won't forget by whipping him repeatedly.

While out on patrol on the tower, Boyle was hit in the back with feces thrown at him by the apes. Enraged, he climbed down to open the gate and demanded to know which ape it was at gunpoint. Just as Boyle asked if it was Stone, more feces were thrown at him and Boyle saw Rocket holding feces in his hands, realizing it was him. Boyle prepared to shoot Rocket in revenge before he was pulled down a tunnel by Maurice, killing him.

Personality[]

Boyle could be described as a very volatile soldier under the best circumstances. He would go off on apes when they threw something at him and pull out his gun. Boyle was also ruthless and had a bad temper even against his fellow troops when they tried to calm him.

Trivia[]

  • In both the official novelization and a previous script draft of War, there was an extended scene showcasing Winter and Red feeding the remaining Alpha-Omega soldiers as Colonel McCullough took the majority and proceeded to their base at the border. In this scene, Boyle kicked his bowl at Winter after he spilled soup on the soldier's boot, making the ape snarl in anger before Boyle pulled his gun out at him, frightening the ape. Preacher then attempted to defuse the situation, but Boyle called the latter "Donkey-Lover" and ordered Winter to get a new bowl. This scene was omitted in not contradicting the overall tone of the movie.
