Orca men are animal people versions of the common orca, who can be found in savage oceans. They spawn in groups of 3-5 individuals and are generally content to keep to themselves, as they are restricted to the water. They are the joint second largest of all animal people, tied with elephant men and losing only to sperm whale men, being 42 times larger than a dwarf in comparison. Like their animal counterparts, they may rarely be subject to beaching.

While they can learn and are able to join civilizations, they never do so, as they are completely aquatic and cannot survive on the surface.

Some dwarves like orca men for their coloration and their great jumps.
