"If you were nice to nature, nature would teach you its secrets." - Mama Ootu
After the Monkey King sacrificed his life to defeat Ka, Mama Ootu, one of the Monkey King's companions, went on a journey to find a piece of Ook to rebuild. What she found was a land that she called the Ootu Mystics tribe. She learned to harness the element of earth at the Ootu Mystics tribe, and so did other monkeys. In the current time of Monkey Quest, Mama Ootu has passed and Mama Babu is the current leader. However, Mama Ootu was resurrected in ghost form, seemingly due to Ka, and becomes a primary quest giver in the main Ootu questlines.
