Main Weapon: Tentatek Splattershot
Traits: Naive, carefree, optimistic, fun-loving
An inkling boy (who's unnamed so far, because I hate coming up with names) who's existence was key in Olivia's survival. He was messing around Blackbelly Skatepark when it wasn't in rotation for any sort of Turf War, and wound up being there right at the time of the octoling invasion. He happened to have their ink color and thought he accidentally stumbled upon a private match. Upon finding who he thought was a teammate due to shared color, he questioned what was going on, surprising the Octarian and distracting her from her mission. As all of her teammates got splatted, she survived thanks to this guy being oblivious. The zapfish, however, was lost, and she left in a foul mood.
Later on, he decided he wanted to get to know her better and started seeking out her home. With a bit of snooping, he managed to get into Octo Valley and catch a glimpse of Olivia with her mother, brother, and two sisters. She freaked out out of both embarrassment and concern; not only was this a hostile environment for inklings, but soon the dome itself would be dangerous for everyone.
Not ready to quit, he decided one night to camp out by the entrance, oblivious to the fact that Agent 3 had been assigned to watch that spot as well. Olivia did end up coming out, and would have been perma-splatted on the spot had he not agreed to accept the responsibility of watching her every move.
He's obsessed with Tentatek and refuses to wear or use anything that isn't by that brand. Works in Walleye Warehouse part-time packing and shipping boxes. He hates Ranked battles and constantly accuses his sister of having no sense of fun.
Nicknames: Liz, Lizzy, Beth, Eli
Main Weapon: Splat Charger
Traits: Serious, efficient, studious, appears a bit cold inked by nature. Quite protective underneath.
Interests: Learning, Self-improvement, Current and historical events
The responsible one who holds an A/A+ rank, being the one who makes enough cash to support the two of them. She's kind of pissed when her brother brings an octoling home (in a rather unusual way), but on the other hand, she's also the one smart enough to keep their new housemate undercover. After giving her brother the lecture of his life, she goes straight to her own wardrobe and picks the best gear for the situation; a cold-inked top to make the octoling stand out less, some bomb sniffer shoes so she can sense danger, and a hat capable of covering that hair of hers.
She mains a charger and is quite prone to salt, due to her income being the main thing supporting her and her brother. She pays the rent and stocks the fridge. The two have MIA parents, so they rely on each other.
She's not shy of pointing that laser at peoples faces for the sake of making them behave, and doesn't hold back the urge to splat her brother when she thinks he's being stupid. They live close enough to an ink pool to make his respawning a non-issue, which is at one early point used to further the fear tactic when interrogating Olivia, who was initially horrified to see her so casually splat her own brother.
Name: Olivia Coco
Nicknames: Olive, Coco, Tako Coco/Coco Tako, Auntie Coco
Traits: Cautious, protective, blunt
The octoling whom Beth's brother saved on more than one occasion, she now lives with them under surveillance. She's completely aware that she's only being allowed to live as what's essentially a prisoner or pet. Even given the opportunity to participate in Turf Wars, she's declined to so much as touch a weapon for fear that one of the agents could be watching. She's developed a particular loathing for Agent 2 after finding out her true identity and hearing a comment about "octo-pie" on the television. Funnily enough, at first she couldn't tell the difference between male and female inklings. So when she was told that the tentacle length was a good way to tell, she ended up calling Agent 2 a guy.
Through circumstances she came to using a large canteen as a bed, and had submitted early on in her new life to occasional travel inside said canteen mostly due to discomfort in crowded places. She had much preferred just be taken along for the ride than be made to interact with anyone. When questioned about how she could stand that without being humiliated, she answered that "Squeezing into small spaces is an octopus specialty" and that she likes small, dark places.
While she was not expected to get any sort of job, it was discovered that she's extremely comfortable around and really good with young squids. One of Beth's friends noticed this and got her a job at a daycare. The young ones have taken to calling her "Auntie Coco". While she's great with the children, an early incident where she had stopped eating after she got the job had to be corrected.
In conversation with the siblings, it's obvious she feels resentment towards inklings and not to happy with feeling watched all the time. She goes through a stage of extreme pessimism and sarcasm that lasts until she's spending the days at the daycare. Her hair is kept curled and inked in a way to create the illusion of inkling tentacles, with special additions to her hat to complete the look.
Interests: Not squids
No one in his family knew his orientation, which led to him being called a weirdo. While normal guys his age should be fighting guys and chasing girls (and subsequently getting the sense beat into them when they try to "claim" a girl as their own), he got stuck at the "fighting" part. He'll pick fights with girls and guys without discrimination. In turn, he kept his bullheadedness for far longer than other guys his age did. When Olivia went to visit her family for possibly the last time with Beth and her brother in tow, he tried to pick a fight with the squid only to get kicked outside for his hostile behavior. When the two squids were told about his oddness, Beth was the one who pointed out that he was probably gay.
As one of the Olive's two spared family members, he's by far the least likely to express any gratitude, and when teased about how squids are not just his only option, but his best option for romance, he goes on a rant about how he could never fall for a "stupid, slimy squid". Beth's brother is the least comfortable around him, mostly because he's afraid of being beat up. He's not a bad guy at heart, but he holds onto his racism and makes this clear as day. His sister is not shy of flipping him to the ground and letting him know he's not the boss, and has ought-right stated to Agent 3's face that it might actually be good for her to "show him his place"; even if that means splatting him in the end. This unintentionally showed off some major cultural differences between Inklings and Octarians: Namely, girls and guys don't get along so great and there's a reason the octolings seen in the zapfish incident were all girls.
He eventually becomes less hostile in attitude, though he sticks by his "stupid, slimy squids" remark. He becomes friends with Beth's brother, maintaining that it's a mutual agreement that neither is the other's type.
