Keet is a very gentle and sweet orca and was a perfect tank mate for Halyn. Usually fathers don't play a role in raising calves though he did very well with her, teaching her how to be an orca and providing her with company. As she grew older she became a little too energetic for her lazy father, though she was the only one who seemed to mind. Sadly, Halyn died in June 2008.

Keet returned to San Diego again on February 27, 2012. He is grouped with all of the orcas and gets along well with them. Keet and Orkid have mated several times since he arrived, though given her history, she is likely not pregnant. He has also attempted mating with Shouka since her transfer.

Keet is gentle with whales and trainers. Even though he is a submissive orca, he gets along with all of the orcas in San Diego, while in San Antonio the dominant orcas were aggressive towards him. Keet has never shown aggression towards his trainers and used to do waterworks before they were stopped in 2010.
