Notes and Information
Saltan's age is not certain; he was said in January of 2008 to be four years old, and 19 years old in January of 2021, meaning he may have been born at any point between 2001 to 2004.
In 2005 Saltan was sent to perform at Aquatoria Yalta on a three-year contract, but was never returned after that point, and has remained based at Yalta ever since (though he was frequently transferred to perform at other venues on contract).
