“A young Octarian Octoling.” I suppose that’s what makes them different from the Octolings we get to fight against.
The protagonist of Splatoon 2: Octo Expansion is a young Octarian Octoling. Octarians seem to have a more serious nature than the carefree Inklings we’re accustomed to. We’ve also heard that they’re naturally good with their hands and adept at using tools and machinery.
