Orcas are predatory cetaceans and the largest species of dolphin on Golarion, and preferentially inhabit cold seas. Full-grown orcas reach fifteen to twenty-five feet in length and 8,000 to 12,000 pounds in weight. They are further distinguished from other dolphins by their striking black-and-white colorations: a typical orca has a primarily black body, with bright white skin on its belly and in a large oval patch behind each eye.[1]
