"Listen to the *shit* I've had to put up with! "In the past few weeks, Commander Krill has become increasingly hostile to the crew. Possible due to anger over my last reviews of his performance. I recommend he be given a psychological evaluation before taking over his next ASSIGNMENT." Do I *LOOK* like I need a psychological evaluation?"

Character Biography[]

Lured into the plot by two hundred million dollars to be gained, Peter Krill assists mentally unstable ex-CIA operative William Strannix in the takeover of the battleship USS Missouri. He was seen spitting in Casey Ryback's soup to spite him and, when Ryback angrily retaliated, Krill ordered him to be imprisoned. When an officer reminded Krill that no sailor can go to the brig without the captain's approval, Krill instead ordered Ryback to be detained in the freezer and orders Private Nash to stand guard. Krill later killed Captain Adams while dressed in drag as the battleship was sieged. After the takeover, he realizes they forgot about Ryback in the freezer, and he sends men to kill him, but Ryback easily kills both of them. He never knew who Casey Ryback really was until after this event, when he examined his personnel file, to which only the Captain had access.

Krill was on the submarine for the later part of the film, helping the submarine crew repair the damaged ballast, caused by Ryback. However, Krill, Luigi, the sub captain and 27 other mercenaries were killed when Ryback sank it by using the Battleship's 16-inch cannons.


Krill is best described as a sociopathic, corrupt, greedy, selfish and arrogant murderer.
