| Captain Mordecai
| Character Information
Captain Mordecai is a fictional character in Marge's romantic novel, The Harpooned Heart. The character was inspired by Homer Simpson.
Mordecai was originally depicted as a caring husband and successful whaler, but Homer's oafish behavior and indifference to Marge's writing prompted her to rework the character, turning Mordecai into a selfish incompetent slob to resemble Homer. He later slipped of a cliff, as his foot was caught in the rope of his weapon after he killed Cyrus Manly, and drowned.
