Monsters/Racial Templates: Apes and Monkeys

Monsters/Racial Templates: Apes and Monkeys

I've decided to convet some monsters and races from D&D and Pathfinder unified by a common theme - they are all simian-like. I combed through the books and found a surprisingly high number of them, but probably missed some too. I omitted unique beings, such as Demogorgon, General Monkey, and Monkey (Greater Spirit).

Monster: Tatalla

Monster: Tatalla

Tatalla, whose name means "the eye", are malicious little creatures often employed as spies or assassins by larger creatures. Tatalla reside only in urban areas, where their services are often desired, and where they are never far from vermin to aid them in their tasks. Tatalla are scavengers, living off the remains of society. They steal what they need and give nothing back to society or to their environment.
