Kemp was a character that appeared in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. He was a member of Malcolm's Group.


Dawn of the Planet of the ApesEdit

Encounter with apesEdit

Kemp was a survivor of the global Simian Flu Pandemic. At some point after this, he would join Malcolm's Group of survivors through unknown circumstances, along with Ellie, Alexander, Carver and Foster. One day, they had been out searching in the woods for the dam, which they required in order to restore power to the human colony. However, when Carver accidentally disturbed two apes and, due to his phobia of apes getting the best of him, shooting and injuring one of them, the rest of the group including Kemp ran over to him. They pulled out their rifles just in case, and scolded carver for shooting the ape. Soon, the ape's leader, Caesar, and his ape colony arrived, and surrounded the group. He and the others were shocked when Caesar yelled in English. The group fled on Caesar's orders.

Working on the damEdit

Kemp returned to the forest with EllieMalcolmAlexander, Carver and a few others to convince Caesar to allow them to generate electricity from the dam. Once Caesar allowed the humans to stay (after forcing them to give up their guns) he and the others discussed the apes. When another member of the group proposed that someone stood guard at the camp that night, Kemp dismissed this idea, reminding him that the apes had taken their guns. Kemp stayed with the group, and was present as Caesar's infant son interacted with Ellie and Alexander.

When Carver threatened both of Caesar's sons, the apes demanded that the group leave their territory but this decision was overturned by Malcolm and Ellie who help tend to the illness of Caesar's wife. The apes even promised to help the humans out but on the condition that Carver left.

Fleeing from the apesEdit

Kemp and the others, with the help of the apes, then proceeded to work on the dam. He payed witness to Caesar horribly beating up Koba for his insolence. He and the others later also watched the power in the Human Colony being restored. When Koba shot Caesar and framed Carver (thereby framing the humans), Kemp fled with the others. His fate was unknown but he was presumably killed as he and Foster fled in the direction the apes went in for the city. By morning, only Ellie, Malcolm, and Alexander hid and were they only ones who seemed to have survived among the group.
