When Mungwortt encountered the tribe, they were brutal carnivores to whom Ape City's political outcasts were fed. They were lumbering creatures with the bodies of apes but the facial features of humans, with little hair other than a white mane around their faces, and each had a metallic tag in one ear through which they were controlled. Mungwortt, however, befriended their leader - nicknamed 'Dinge' - and led a revolt against the Inheritors.
- The race were unnamed in their original appearance. The name 'White Ones' first appeared in the 2011 novel, and is here applied retroactively to the earlier version.
- Dinge is placed within the continuity of the the original Planet of the Apes pentalogy.
