There were some questions as to the military application of applying the procedure to giant marine mammals. But given the sheer size and strength of blue whales, the exact scientific reasoning went: "Ah, fuck it, why not?"

The results were mixed. The subject, an infant male, was extremely stunted by the standards of his species, barely reaching a length of 10 feet from snout to fluke, less when standing upright. Further, his body structure did not become as humanoid as was observed with many other subjects.

On the other hand, the native intelligence already found in non-mutant whales carried over into the subject, and he took to biological study at a phenomenal rate, thus the nickname Doc. And his natural cetacean singing translated into impressive instinctive understanding of communications, codes, and long-distance transmissions.

And even a greatly reduced blue whale is still a huge, tremendously strong creature that can beat you to death with an uprooted tree.

- Doc grew up in a secluded research station on an island in the middle of the Pacific ocean. He had little contact with humans other than his handler and a few of the scientists; however, he was able to swim in the ocean, and thanks to the fact that whale song can carry for thousands of miles in the water, he was able to experience a form of communication with his kind. This was only partial, however -- Doc is nowhere near large enough to produce sound on the scale of his larger brethren.

He was amiable, and enjoyed work on codes and electronic transmissions, once it became clear that this was the human equivalent of what he was already doing in the ocean.

- Clay Quinn, a marine biologist brought in for the experiment that produced Doc, was a genuinely nice guy, as far as Doc ever knew. They got along well, and Doc was always very careful never to accidentally break him.

- After the initial results of the experiment that produced Doc were assessed, it was decided that military applications could be useful. An orca was brought in and had the same tests performed. The result was the cleverly-named Killer, a humanoid orca trained as an amphibious-assault commando. Killer was an utterly sociopathic monster, and Doc loathed him.
