Flying Whale

Within the skies of Tempeste, whales fly around freely. These massive whales use gaseous sacs within them to lift them into the skies. Residents of Tempeste pay to use these whales as transports to and from the city, and merchants use these whales as cargo. Massive in size, these whales are usually around 50 feet long when they mature. They are regarded as majestic and are well protected as such, harming them in any form is frowned upon by the vast majority of any society that knows of their existence.

Basic Information


Quite similar to a normal whale, the major differences are flying whales have several whiskers sprouting from the sides of their faces, as well as extra pectoral fins. The whiskers of the whale develops over time, with an older whale's becoming curled and sometimes even barbed.

Growth Rate & Stages

Flying whales in Tempeste take around 100 years to reach maturity, and have a lifespan of 300 years on average.

Ecology and Habitats

Flying whales in Tempeste not only live in the clouds, but often swim about in the sea below. This provides them with plenty of exercised as well as plenty of food to keep them sustained.

Dietary Needs and Habits

The only place they will feed at is under the sea, as there is much more sustenance there as opposed to the skies.

Additional Information

Geographic Origin and Distribution

Flying whales are not just native to the areas around tempest, but can also be found in pods around the oceans of Sathis.
300 years
Conservation Status
Flying whales are very rarely seen outside the areas near Tempeste, therefore these whales are taken care of to extremity by their owners. Since these beasts only reproduce every several hundred years and are used as general beasts of burden, the residents of Tempeste pay their respects to the whales with minerals and jewels that are then put onto the beasts. Owners will take the beasts down to the waters below Tempeste to feed on fish every other day, ensuring their health as well as keeping the whales happy.
