Regardless of subspecies, most whales are immense and graceful beasts of the seas.
Whales tend to be peaceful, but when provoked (or, for carnivorous whales, when on the hunt) they can bite, slap foes with their tail, or simply ram themselves into a target.
Some whales travel alone or in pairs, but in the wild many also form pods of a dozen members or more.
The many subspecies of whale include:
- Baleen whales, which feed through the namesake comb-like filters in their mouths
- Blue whales, tremendous filter-feeding whales with powerful tails
- Crimson whales, aggressive hunters known for their large teeth and red skin
- Faceless whales, pale sightless creatures also known as Darklands whales
- Fire whales, cetaceans native to the Plane of Fire but now found in several areas of the Material Plane.
- Great white whales, colossal and aggressive beasts
- Narwhals, small whales whose males bear a six-foot-long tusk above their mouths
- Sperm whales
