This paper focuses on simple affective roles in a replication of the Dominance World (DomWorld) model of primate social behaviour. Agents are discussed as autonomous entities capable of managing their social ranks by performing or avoiding dominance interactions. With autonomy described as the ability to deal with such aggressions only by using local perception and internal action-selection, different social organisations can be observed byintroducing simple, reactive fear to some agents in this model.
