The Space Chimps first contact with the Cult of Lamiar was on the forest planet of Rygar IV. Unbeknownst to the Tamarin, Rygar IV was an Altar World for the Lamiarian she-god.
Despite the Space Chimps superior technology their numbers were not sufficient to hold back the sheer fanaticism of the Lamiarian cultists. Throwing fireballs from their very fingertips the Lamiar drove the Tamarin back to their ships.
Only by the heroic intervention of the Tamarin Patriarch Rukta’ Gor, was the entire Tamarin expedition saved from the Lamiarian Altars of Sacrifice.
