The Whale is known to help people in need whether we are helpless or wounded. The whale symbolizes kindness, intelligence, and compassion.

The Whale or Orca, is known as the guardian of the sea and guardian of travel and also can also be a symbol for unity and goodness. Killer Whales often travel in family groups known as pods and also hunt in packs like the wolf so are referred to as sea wolves. The Whale is a popular symbol for romance as they mate for life. It is because of this nature that they are known for their strong sense of family values and unity in numbers.

The Killer Whale is the most admired of all the Whales and is used as a powerful crest by many clans.
