Less than several hundred neo-whale morphs exist, and the majority remain occupied by their original egos. They are primarily found in Ceres and Atlantica. They are derived from humpback, blue, and sperm whale genetic stock. Humpbacks and blues are baleen whales and require large amounts of krill to survive. Sperm whales are toothed, feeding on fish and squid.

Ruqinzhe: I have. I won a bet in an online gambling tournament where my opponent had put his morph on the table. Turns out I beat a neo-whale. I didn’t have the heart to tell him I cheated, so I simply took it for a spin for a week before giving it back. Majestic.
