Simoom was born in 1975 to Scimitar, whose dorsal fin had the distinctive curved shape of a sword. Simoom is one of the most prolific females in the northern resident population and her growing family is now 11-strong. She had her first son Echo, in 1990 when she was 15 years old. Her latest (and probably last) was born in 2010. Simoom became a grandmother for the first time in 2005 and now has five grandchildren.
When she arrives in Johnstone Strait for the summer, Simoom resumes her role as host to other visiting families. She is the matriarch of her group and has certainly contributed to its prominence. She is often seen nestled between Echo and her teenage son Hope.
