St. Julien Perlmutter

St. Julien Perlmutter

St. Julien Perlmutter is a fictional character, in the Dirk Pitt series of adventure novels written by Clive Cussler. In this series of books, which deal with adventures on the seas, Perlmutter is often consulted for his knowledge of sea history and lore, as well as to search his extensive library of rare books concerning the ships, shipwrecks, oceans, and events of the sea.

Perlmutter lives in Georgetown, in Washington, D.C., in a three story remodeled manor crammed with books, bookshelves, documents and other papers. Perlmutter's collection is said to be the world's largest archive of marine history and libraries around the world are ready to bid any price to acquire the contents. The contents are not indexed and are strewn about, but Perlmutter can somehow, within a minute or less, easily locate information and the data for which he is searching. He is described as an intellectual with sharp mental acuity.

Perlmutter's library is often contrasted with "Max," an ultramodern computer personality created by another character, Hiram Yeager. Perlmutter and Max share research duties in the series of novels, showing that both the old and new can coexist.

Perlmutter's house also has a refrigerated food locker and a 1000 bottle wine cellar. Perlmutter is a gourmet cook, but also enjoys eating and drinking to excess and thus would qualify as a gourmand. Perhaps as a result, the six-foot-four inches tall Perlmutter weighs over 400 pounds. He is often described as wearing a paisley robe, and has a full beard and long, twisted mustache.

Like Dirk Pitt, Perlmutter is said to have furniture originally used on ships, his dining table is a rudder from the ghost ship "Mary Celeste". "Fritz", his pet dachshund puppy, also enjoys gourmet food.

Perlmutter also makes appearances in the Kurt Austin series of NUMA novels, also by Cussler (with the exception of "Polar Shift.")
