Old One was an ape-man who lived in Africa somewhere around the time of 3,000,000 BC. He was Moon-Watcher's father, though Moon-Watcher is apparently unaware of their relations. He died either from hunger or old age. Moon-Watcher carried his body to a place where other dead members of their tribe are left, which the predators feast upon. Upon returning to his tribe, Moon-Watcher never thought of his father again.
