Encountering the Kraken

We've met it once before, but have since lost all trace. It's near inconceivable that a creature that large could move so quickly and disappear so throughly but it's happened, so believe we must.

Even so, we've not been at a loss for gargantuan sea creatures. On two separate occasions now we've encountered the mythical, but all too real, kraken. As the existence of this report suggests, we have survived these meetings. All we can deduce is that the kraken is more curious than aggressive and that to it, we are no more threatening or interesting than a dolphin. In contrast, we find the kraken of incredible interest. Were it not for our pursuit of the Leviathan we would certainly spend much more time with the Architeuthis. Alas, all we have time to do is record some sketches and mark locations on our charts before our journey resumes.
