Although they can be violent, darfellans do not usually initiate a battle, though they attack whale hunters without hesitation. They prefer to fight in the water, surrounding an enemy while darting in to make attacks. Out of water, they begin with ranged harpoon attacks, hoping to impale and then reel in enemies.
