These sea dwellers are carnivores that prefer fish or seal meat, but their favorites are shark or blood fish. They are mammals and are able to survive underwater, even at great depths, due to their large lung capacity. Orcam spend much of their time hunting for food, preferring to snack several times a day instead of eating fewer large meals. Orcam mate for life; when one partner dies, the other never seeks another mate. Mated couples produce off spring every few years and these births are almost always of a single child. Twins are seen as a sign of extraordinary luck. The whales they coexist with are a vital part of their community and are treated more as family than as pets. They are welcome in any gathering or discussion and are often consulted on tribal matters through the magic of the sea druids.
