The Jonah is a genetic marvel of the Ancients. A genetic adaptation of the
humpback whale, it is similar in appearance to its progenitor, except the
hump is significantly more pronounced. It has a powerful tail fin and a
pair of smaller fins nearer the creature's head for guidance and buoyancy.
The jonah has two flaps of skin midway through the hump on its back that
seal at will to lock out water. They can be opened separately like hatches
to reveal passageways about six feet in diameter. Each passageway leads
into a separate area deep within the whale's hump. Each of these compartments
is about 12 feet long, 8 feet wide, and 5 feet high. There is room for eight
passengers to sit comfortably, or for an equivalent volume of cargo to be
carried. These compartments hold enough air for eight people to breathe for
two hours (or one person for 16 hours).

A soft patch of tissue grows in one of the hump compartments. The soft tissue
can pick up vocal vibrations, allowing the whale to effectively "hear" what
is going on in the compartment. The membrane also senses pressure and can be
used by passengers to control the whale's movements, much the way a bit and
bridle direct a horse.

When a jonah is not carrying anything in its compartments, it can fill them
with water to facilitate deeper diving. It can also partially collapse these
compartments, forcing out the water to aid in resurfacing. Being an air
breather, a jonah must surface once every two hours, otherwise it drowns.

The jonah is non-carnivorous and non-belligerent. It is usually left alone
by predators because of its huge size.

Pacific Ocean. The jonah is exclusively a marine creature and cannot survive
out of water.

The jonah is a beast of burden. It is a social creature, living a peaceful
life in herds as large as several dozen. It accepts simple commands and
carries them out to the best of its ability.

While not truly sentient, jonah's can learn to associate places with sounds.
For example, a trained jonah knows that the sound "En-We-To" , means its
passenger wants it to go to that atoll in the Pacific Ocean. Jonahs also
respond to commands such as "attack" and "flee," and new commands can be
easily taught and learned. (The jonah , because of its docile nature,
prefers to interpret "attack" as "flee" unless no escape route is available.)

Jonahs show great perseverance when following commands. If a jonah cannot
complete a command due to circumstances beyond its control, it remembers
it and attempts to fulfill it later. They respond to affection with great
loyalty. If abused, jonahs will challenge their abusers, but despite their
great size, they are easily cow to the infliction of pain.
