Captain Ahab’s, obsession with giant sea creatures led to a chance encounter with “Jerky,” who can not only find such monstrosities, but also may be able to control them.
~ Pequod's flavor text
His left arm twitches (mauled by a giant squid); he has a limp (left foot eaten by a shark), and he’s almost blind (too many days in a whale’s gut)…yet ”Jerky” seems to know when any giant sea creature is near.
