Dr. Cornelius is a chimpanzee archaeologist and historian, appearing in the original novel of Planet Of The Apes, and also the first three installments of the classic movie series of the same name, from the 1960s and 1970s. He was portrayed mainly by actor Roddy McDowall, but also by David Watson in the second movie Beneath The Planet of The Apes.
In 1968's Planet Of The Apes, Cornelius is introduced as the fiancé of Dr Zira, an animal psychologist and veterinarian (who specializes in working with humans), both of whom are on the scientific staff of Dr Zaius. While supporting the status quo, Cornelius has begun to question the infallibility of the Sacred Scrolls, which give the traditional history of the ape society, and is considering the validity of evolution (specifically, from human to ape) to explain the scientific gaps in the scrolls.
