A member of the solid and humorless Thennanin race, engaging in conversation with the Thennanin's latest uplift clients the gorillas, whilst both a human scientist and a neo-chimp scientist watch in awe in the background. The Thennanin may be very traditional and possess a complete inability to appreciate even the simplest of jokes, but they are passionate environmentalists and are also some of the best in the business at uplift. Once again this picture is inspired by The Uplift War by David Brin, and takes place after the events in the novel, so some of the content might be lost on those who haven't read it - still, it was a lot of fun drawing a Thennanin.
