Preserved Killick serves as Jack Aubrey's steward throughout the Aubrey-Maturin series. He is described in the Canon as ill-tempered, disagreeable, and "shrewish." Killick regularly scolds and nags both Aubrey and Maturin about their mistreatment of their clothing, and he often eavesdrops on their private conversations. In spite of his shortcomings, Killick is fiercely loyal to Aubrey, and is an esteemed member of his crew. Aubrey reciprocates this loyalty; Killick is one of a handful of crewmen who Aubrey repeatedly takes with him from one command to the next. Killick also stays on as a servant at Aubrey's home when he is without a command.
