Squid Sisters (Callie and Marie)
The Inklings are the main playable characters of the 2015 shooter game Splatoon. The Inklings take on two distinctive appearances: a squid form, and a human form, with the latter being due to the evolution of the squid species so they could live on the land that the long-extinct humans left behind. Inklings have the ability to transform between their squid and human-like forms at will once they become 14 years old.
The Inklings are a competitive race. A large majority of Inklings participate in games known as "Turf Wars", or one of its variants, which is based around the idea of Inklings covering a stage's ground with their team's ink colour. Inklings also compete in day-to-day life, with many trying to become the freshest Inkling.
Inklings speak a language known as "Inkling". To those that do not speak it, the language appears to be completely random in its phrasing and pronunciation of words, and as such seems to be gibberish.
