Terry is a Sea-Bee. He tried to organize the Sea-Bees in a strike but could not find the proper arguments to express their positions, until Manny Calavera brought him a revolutionary book about the workers' rights.
He was able to excite a riot on the docks, and the bees rebelled against the law. However he was arrested by Chief-Officer Bogan and put into jail. Then he was released when Manny was able to blackmail and get lawyer Nick Virgao to argue his case for him. Terry continued to riot down on the docks and Glottis was free to get the bees tools to board SS Limbo.
