Summary
Akira is a teenage wild-born female orca. She was born in the Pacific Ocean, near Japan, but captured by Taiji. She was sold to Sea World in 2007.

Akira was ecstactic when she was moved to Sea World. She gets along great with females: Kasatka, Corky2, Shouka, Kalia, and Amaya. 
She's known to swim with Ikaika from time to time, and "chat" with Ulises, and splash Keet when he's at the surface.

Overall, Paco is friendly and playful. He is known to be shy around unfamiliar individuals, but becomes comfortable in their presence quickly. He is obedient to any trainer he is familiar with. It should be noted that Nakai and Makani haave been hurt by Akira, but from the trainers' point of view, it was accidental. She also is some how "competing" with Orkid. They don't seem to get along well.
Akira is beginning training and learns from  other whales at her age. She is very cautious to do the command correctly.  She is eager to learn, and her high intelligence may rival Orkid's. She often demonstrates her amazing high flying stunts without command, always exciting the audience!
