Adán is a 7 year old male orca who was born on October 13, 2010, though Loro Parque celebrates his birthday on the 12th, which is Spain's national holiday. His mother is Kohana and his father is Keto. He was the first orca to be born in Loro Parque and also the first orca to be born in Spain.

Sadly after birth, his mother Kohana rejected him as she didn't know how to take care of a calf. He is also slightly inbred as Kohana's mother Takara, is Keto's half sister. This combination means Adán could be up to 6.25% inbred.

Adán has been introduced to all of the orcas living in Loro Parque. The first whale he was introduced to was Keto. He was the first to be introduced to his younger sister, Victoria, and the two could often be seen together. Around September 2012, Adán started appearing in shows along with the older orcas. He can be seen with any pod member, though he is most often seen with Kohana, Skyla and Morgan.
