The Whale Shaman is a powerful Salish shaman.
The shadowrunners first encounter the Whale Shaman while protecting Hadiyah al-Fulan at the gala in The Downtown Sheraton ballroom. He tells a story to the attendees and then, when Humanis Policlub thugs attack the gala, uses his magic to help fight them off. After the battle, Breakdown astrally communicates with the Whale Shaman, who gives Breakdown the location of his house boat.
The Whale Shaman is never seen again.
