Dolphin is the name given to a family of aquatic mammals that hunt socially in shallow seas and rivers and gather in groups called pods. Many sailors are fond of dolphins and tell stories of being saved from drowning by them, or saved from shark attacks. Dolphins are sometimes taken as animal companions by maritime druids or rangers.1

Dolphin species

Numerous species of dolphin with unique characteristics and habitats exist. The Embaral Ocean is home to gray dolphins with blue-pink sides that are believed to be sacred to Hei Feng, and which sailors thus avoid harming.2 Orcas are the largest species on dolphin known, and are further distinguished from other dolphins by their black-and-white colorations.1 Popotos are the smallest dolphins known to exist, and are occasionally encountered in freshwater.3
