They parted from humanity somewhere before age of strife and do their best to distance themselves from it.
-Some years ago I was running sci-fi rpg where center of campaign was star vessel originating from earth around 2300 ad. One of the crew members was uplifted chimpanzee. He was first ape to win physics Nobel prize. He was first to envision apedom free from oppression of humanity and populating their own worlds of monkey utopia.
-Even that uplifted ape keep their distance humanity they still continue hunting down and exterminating AIs from dark age of technology.
-Also if they encounter STC apes from planets terraformed by STC standards they are rescued and placed to primitive jungle world to live free of humanity.
