— the Squid Sisters' catchphrase.

Callie is a part of the Squid Sisters pop idol duo and a host of Inkopolis News, along with her cousin Marie. Her signature color is magenta.

Appearance

Callie is a very fashionable Inkling, and has a more edgy design in comparison to her cousin. Her tentacles, which are black with a pink-purple tinge at the ends, are very long and tied in a large bow on the back of her head, leaving the ends to dangle. She has large, angular eyes with gold irises and light brown pupils in the shape of a plus or a 'ninja star'. Her eye markings end in small points, and her eyebrows are large and oval shaped. Her ears are slightly narrower, longer, and upturned than those of the average Inkling, and on them she wears a pair of chunky, milk-white earrings. Her outfit, which appears to be a corset with attached shorts, is black with a reflective texture, as if covered in sequins. On the front are three magenta marks, which, somewhat morbidly, are made to look like the cuts made in squid when it is cooked. With this outfit, she wears magenta tights, white gloves, and a small, white, pointed neck accessory giving the impression of a shirt collar. On her feet, Callie wears a pair of black wedge shoes with a texture similar to leather, which has a shiny pink-purple material on the bottom and two pink buttons on either side of the ankle. She wears a pink and white hat resembling the Japanese fast food Ikayaki on her head, and has a birthmark or a lone freckle on her left cheek.

During a Splatfest, any part of Callie's appearance that is normally magenta will change to match the color of her Splatfest Team, including the ends of her tentacles.

As a child, Callie wore traditional Japanese-style clothing, and her tentacles were somewhat messy and much shorter, with the longest one falling just past her left ear. Her first outfit, shown in Sunken Scroll 17, consisted of a purple yukata with a squid pattern on the sleeves and a flower pattern towards the bottom, and a pair of thick black zōri with purple thongs. On the left side of her head, she wore some sort of purple accessory. For her second outfit, which was shown in promo art for the Japanese Grasshopper vs. Ant Splatfest, Callie wore a red-orange yukata with a white jellyfish pattern and thinner zōri, but still with purple thongs. The purple accessory had changed to green and red, and she had what seems to be a blue inner tube strapped to her back.

Personality

Empty tank.png This section is a stub.

You can help the wiki by adding to it. Reason: More information from stage comments and Splatfest choices.


Callie is very animated and excitable, and is usually seen with a grin on her face. She is rather fond of puns, and uses them from time to time; a habit that tends to annoy her cousin a little. She is often quite optimistic and caring; in the Japanese version of Splatoon, she thanks her Splatfest team for doing their best, whether she won or not. Unlike Marie's sarcastic comments, Callie seems to always have something happy and innocent to say.

She seems to gravitate toward exciting activities, such as driving, running around, and going camping. However, she has expressed having a fear of heights, skateboarding, and even Bluefin Depot, and cannot ride a bicycle or drive, which is ironic as she represented cars in the Cars vs. Planes Splatfest. She also loves to eat and often talks about food, much to the chagrin and occasional disgust of Marie. Her favorite food appears to be chips. Easily distracted by cute, pretty, or striking things, many of her stage comments are about something totally irrelevant to the battle. Callie also seems to have a fascination with clothing and makeup.

It is mentioned numerous times in Inkopolis News dialogue that her favorite weapon class is the Roller. Given the existence of the Hero Roller Replica and her role as Agent 1, it is possible that Callie used a Roller in Octo Valley.

Early Life

Callie and Marie winning Inkopolis's first annual Youth Folk-Singing Contest.

Callie was raised in Calamari County. At a young age, she became interested in singing and entered Inkopolis' first annual Youth Folk-Singing Contest with her cousin, Marie. Their stunning performance earned them a standing ovation from the audience, as well as a first place trophy and certificate. This success made them instant pop icons.

After moving to Inkopolis, Callie worked at Walleye Warehouse with Marie for some time before eventually becoming the Squid Sisters idol group.

Career

Riding on the fame following her win at the Youth Folk-Singing Contest, Callie joined Marie in creating the Squid Sisters. Their repertoire includes a modern take on an ancient melody, a song unique to Splatfests, and a song used to defeat DJ Octavio. They have risen in notoriety, eventually becoming Inkopolis' premier pop icons, performing at Splatfests, and hosting Inkopolis News.

She, along with Marie, first appeared in issue 1 of the CoroCoro manga Splatoon, where she announced the CoroCoro Cup. She and Marie are hosts and commentators for that tournament. She now often appears in issues starting with issue 2.

Splatfest

Main article: Splatfest

When a Splatfest occurs, Callie and Marie announce the theme prior to the event, each siding with a specific team. When the day of the Splatfest arrives, they can be seen singing and dancing atop trucks equipped with platforms and stage equipment. Upon the event's conclusion, they announce the winner in a special segment of Inkopolis News. While Callie's team has won twenty-six Splatfests, Marie's has only won nineteen.

Octo Valley

Main article: Octo Valley (mode)
Agent 1's icon in Octo Valley.

As hinted throughout Octo Valley, Callie is Agent 1 and Cap'n Cuttlefish is her grandfather. While posing as Agent 1, she wears a pink beanie with a star on the side, a pair of sunglasses, and what appears to be a pink t-shirt. Her attire suggests she is hiding her real identity from any fans that might happen to see her. Throughout Octo Valley, Callie is heard communicating to Cap'n Cuttlefish, Agent 2, and Agent 3 regarding the looming Octarian menace. By performing a song with Agent 2, or Marie, Callie is able to distract DJ Octavio and free the Cap'n in the Octo Valley mission Enter the Octobot King!

Trivia

  • Callie's name forms something that resembles the word "calamari" when combined with Marie's name. Calamari is an Italian squid dish and literally translates to "squid".
  • Callie's Japanese name is derived from a real-world species: "Aori-ika" is the Japanese name for the Bigfin Reef Squid
  • Like Marie, Callie's hat is not attached and can be seen flying off of her head for a moment when she jumps.
  • Several fans have noted that Callie resembles Bayonetta from the Bayonetta series. It is unknown if this was intentional.
  • From Inkopolis News dialogue, Callie is a big fan of chips.
  • Although her hair is mostly black, Callie's normal ink color is magenta, as proven by her amiibo figure. This is also shown when Callie is in her squid form, as seen in Super Mario Maker and Miitomo.
