The fighting monkey

Some of the wave 39 artwork is a little ambiguous as to what faction some of the models belong to. In particular the club wielding ape has me in two minds. On one hand Monkeys, apes and furry little critters like master akari are the temple's stock in trade. The pillar he is standing on is reminiscent of some of the temple artwork in the rulebook and his club has a yin yang thing which seems very templeish.
On the other hand the big ape is Wearing a lot of armour and all the blue dangly bits give him a Ryu look.
I could also be barking up the wrong tree entirely and he belongs to the silvermoon or someone else.

Does anyone know where he belongs?

You are right to notice he's not dressed like you'd expect for the Temple of Ro-Kan.

Hooray!

I can't wait to get my hands on the model. A monkey/ape theme list looks like it could be fun.

Also I am hoping that he will be a yokai so he can slot into a peasant themed list.

He's a monk, he's similar to Kuma just a non-human monk.
