APE is group of scientists and politicians who govern all of known humanity. All civilian and military organizations report to them or someone under them, with the exception of the special forces pilots, also known as the "Nines," who report directly to APE. They worked with Dr. FRANXX in the creation of the FRANXX program. APE is ruled by a Chairman, who is known as "Papa" by Children and adults alike and worshipped as a god. Members of APE wear elegant white robes and sport unique mechanical masks.
Seven SagesThe Seven Sages (
The seven adults who assemble at APE HQ. In opposition of the sudden activity of klaxosaur, they pay particular to the awakening of Strelizia and its pistil, Zero Two. They refer to Hiro as the "special specimen.".
Publicly, APE is dedicated to the preservation and protection of humanity, who live in Plantations protected by squads of FRANXX units. Any ulterior motives are still unknown, save that they have a special interest in Zero Two.
APE convenes in the APE Strategic Headquarters, which is a large, circular glass dome located in an unknown region somewhere within outer space. The facility is equipped with a number of displays and holographic projections to assist in any meeting. Members of APE do not physically meet up, and instead appear via a holographic projection, leaving their true location a mystery.
- Masks of APE members resemble certain species of primates as they are named after them. All are confirmed except Chairman and Vice-Chairman.
- They desire to bring Zero Two to Grand Crevasse.
