Planet of the Apes Wiki

Kemp was a member of a struggling community of human survivors in San Francisco who met Caesar and his colony under difficult circumstances. He was also a member of Malcolm's Group.



Kemp was a survivor of the global Simian Flu Pandemic. At some point after this, he joined Malcolm's Group of survivors through unknown circumstances, along with Carver and Foster.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes[]

Encounter with Apes[]

One day, they were out searching in the woods for a 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 for apes getting the best of him, injured 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 and the group fled on Caesar's orders.

Working on the Dam[]

Kemp returned to the forest with EllieMalcolmAlexander, Carver and Foster 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 Apes[]

Kemp and the others, with the help of the apes, proceeded to work on the dam, also paying witness to Caesar horribly beating Koba for his insolence. He and the others later watched the restoration of power to San Francisco. When Koba shot Caesar and framed Carver for it and burned down the Ape Village (thereby framing the humans), Kemp fled with the others, but was presumably killed as he and Foster fled in the direction the apes went in for the city, as Ellie, Malcolm, and Alexander hid and were the only ones who seemed to have survived among the group.
