Now this right here is Flow. You'll find her working at Headspace, Inkopolis's spot for hats and helmets. From the way she talks, she might seem a bit loopy, but that's just part of her mysterious vibe. Word has it she's a bit older than most of her Inkling customers, and teasing them is one of her favorite pastimes. The little guy who lives among her tendrils is her erstwhile companion, Craymond, an unhinged emperor shrimp who's always got her back.

Flow and Craymond are characters in the Splatoon series. They are, respectively, a sea slug and an emperor shrimp who jointly operate the headgear shop Headspace. Their relationship is inspired by the symbiotic relationship of their real-life animal counterparts.

Appearance

Flow

Flow's clothing style resembles a 1960s hippie look; her clothes are very loose and baggy, and their colors are earthy in tone. She wears a purple shawl with tassels over a gray shirt and a long, black dress. She wears a black beaded necklace with a teal squid shaped jewel. Flow's clothing covers both of her arms completely, and only a single foot wearing a black sandal with a red jewel visibly protrudes from under the hem of her dress. This may reference real-life sea slugs having no arms and only one foot.

She has a large, hat-like orange mantle with a constantly undulating pastel green fringe, and pastel green and orange striped rhinophores protrude from its front; it is around this mantle that Craymond hovers. Additionally, the fringe is studded with two ring piercings: a smaller metallic brown piercing in front, and a larger green piercing on the right; Splatoon 3 adds a matching green piercing on the right as well. Underneath her mantle, she wears a knotted multicolored headband with flower-shaped objects attached, and suspended are several dangling structures which resemble hair, being orange with a gradient into deep pink at the tips, that come down slightly past her shoulders. Flow's eyes are emerald green with dotted line patterns around her pupils, and she has thick orange eyebrows and dark pink eyelashes with teal tips, alongside two small white markings under each eye. She has a long tail behind her with a row of orange cerata on top of the base.

Some concept art suggests that Flow was initially going to have a more androgynous look; this concept may have been derived from the hermaphroditic nature of real-life nudibranchs.

Craymond

Craymond's appearance is comparatively quite simple. He is seen floating on the side of Flow's mantle, and he is a small shrimp, with the entirety of his body being of a peachy tan color. He also has small front-facing cartoon-style eyes and no visible mouth.

Personality and traits

Flow

Flow is a very spacy and lax woman, to the point where the local Inklings have taken to calling her their "crazy aunt".[2] This is also demonstrated through her speech, making extensive use of vague new-age terminology such as "aura", "spirit", and "energy". She also enjoys drinking alcohol, and loves to tease children she finds cute while drunk.[3] As Headspace focuses on gear worn on the head, Flow's version of New You reflects a contemplative or mindful tone as well as higher vocals, linking it to the head. It is simpler and more soothing, matching Flow's calm yet spacey personality. It also has sounds of a ukulele and maracas, referencing her characterization as a hippie.

According to concept art from The Art of Splatoon 2, Flow was first conceptualized as having a "no-strings attached" friendship with Spyke. The book implies that she befriends men easier than women, and that she tends to scare girls away at times given her "rough around the edges" personality, but she has lots of friends and is rather popular, especially with older crowds, due to her cute appearance. She would "innocently like a boyfriend", making her one of the few characters mentioned to be seeking a relationship (alongside Crusty Sean). This concept art information has not been confirmed to apply to Flow's character in the final release of Splatoon 2.

Mentions of Flow's age have been indirect, inconsistent, and vague. The Squid Research Lab[1] and The Art of Splatoon 2 describe her as a "bit older" than her customers, but also state that her "baby face" makes it "impossible to tell how old she truly is." Pieces of concept art also describe her as having the "vibe" of a "20-something party girl".[4] Her aforementioned fondness for alcohol and the fact that she is implied to have been traveling extensively since at least 2007 Mollusc Era (approximately ten years before the start of Splatoon 2) would heavily suggest she is at least of legal age. Ultimately, it can be reasonably presumed that Flow is likely at least in her 20s, if not older.

Craymond

In contrast to Flow's calm demeanor, Craymond is anxious and quick to jump at things; he is described as "unhinged" by the Squid Research Lab[1]. After Flow finishes talking, as in the case of Annie and Moe, he loudly blurts out accompanying phrases; unlike Moe's consistent rudeness, these phrases range from polite to panicked to occasionally outright nonsensical.

Despite the contrast in personality, he gets along well with Flow and looks after her, such as eating parasites.[3] Flow's statement in the Splatoon 2 relationship chart of "What would I do without you?" seems to indicate she finds Craymond's companionship invaluable, although Craymond's corresponding sentiment of "What would she do without me?" could indicate his lighthearted exasperation at some of her lax tendencies.

History

Before Splatoon 2

Flow is regularly mentioned as having been a frequent traveler, even going on trips overseas. While on a working holiday, she met the owner of Headspace, which ultimately resulted in her becoming the store's manager.[4] She also appears in Sunken Scroll 7 of Octo Canyon, alongside an "Ika Airlines" flight ticket. Text shown in the Sunken Scroll also implies that her traveling significantly predates the events of even Splatoon; stamps on the passport page appear to show the year 2007, while the photo that is prominently featured dates back to 2010.

She also met Craymond in her travels, finding him floating around her head unexpectedly while on a trip, remarking as such with amusement. In reality, she was actually lost on said trip and had not noticed yet; Craymond, not wanting to "sit by and not help", joined up with her.[4]

Splatoon 2

Flow and Craymond collectively serve as the staff of Headspace, located in Inkopolis Square's Galleria. As the name of the shop suggests, they sell all manners of headgear.

Additionally, they were both on Team Chaos for Chaos vs. Order, apparently owing to their "hope to open a new world's third eye to the exciting possibilities of chaos".[5]

Splatoon 3

Flow and Craymond return in Splatoon 3: Expansion Pass, again serving as the shopkeepers of Headspace in Inkopolis Square. Additionally, like other shopkeepers, Flow appears as a rival in Tableturf Battle. In both cases, they may only be interacted with after beating Side Order.

When a player below level 4 enters the shop: Flow:
"Whoa, friend... I could feel your aura before you even set foot in my shop. Your eagerness is palpable. But I'm afraid I can't sell you my wares until you're truly ready for them. Until you're able to channel that energy into bettering yourself. Once you make it to level 4, I think you'll be ready, but I don't want to rush it. It should happen organically or not at all. Now go! Realize your potential, friend! I have no doubt you'll find yourself after a couple dozen Regular Battles."

When a player below level 4 enters the shop: Soezie:
"Ho, watervlo... Ik voelde je aura al voor je binnenkwam... Je hebt een sterke energie. Maar ik kan je mijn spullen niet verkopen voor je er klaar voor bent. Je moet die energie van je inzetten voor zelfontplooiing. Als je niveau 4 hebt, ben je er wel klaar voor, geloof ik. Maar je moet het niet forceren. Zoiets moet organisch gaan, weet je. Ga nu maar... Ga op zoek naar je ware zelf. Je zult jezelf wel vinden na een paar standaardgevechten."
(Ho, waterflea... I already felt your aura before you came in... You have strong energy. But I can't sell you my stuff before you are ready. You should use that energy of yours for self-development.

Trivia

  • The Squid Research Lab says that Craymond "lives among her tendrils", despite sitting on her mantle, which has no structures that could be described as tendrils other than two rhinophores.
  • The fact that Flow likes to drink alcohol could be a reference to how Spanish dancer nudibranches, the species she most resembles, eat toxic creatures such as sponges to maintain their own toxicity levels to ward off predators.

Etymology

Flow

From "Flo" (diminutive form of the female given names "Flora" or "Florence") and "flow".

Craymond

A portmanteau of "crayfish" (although crayfish are not shrimp, they do belong to the same suborder) and the male given name "Raymond".
