The Dolphin King is a Breton folktale that has many parallels in stories around the world. It explains why French fishermen never harm dolphins.
When Jean and his friends go fishing they are all keen to show off what good shots they are. But when Jean's spear wounds a dolphin, their boat is caught up in a mysterious storm and a ghostly warrior rises out of the waves. It seems the dolphin Jean wounded was none other than the dolphin king himself, and he must pay for his crime...
