Narnia is a 14 year old female orca who lives at the Moskvarium. She was captured in Russia on August 11, 2012.

At the time of her capture, she and another orca were caught, though it's possible there may have been a third. They were captured from the Okhotsk Sea. Narnia was the only orca taken into captivity. She was held at the TINRO Center until December 2013, when she and a young male orca, named Nord, were transferred to a temporary holding facility.

In December 2014, Narnia and Nord were transferred to the Moskvarium along with a new female named Naja.
