Inklings are a species of squid that can shift between molluscan and humanoid form.
They came about after the extinction of humanity caused by the sea level rising.
In their squid form, they appear as normal squids with a mask like marking around their eyes, as a humanoid they resemble a human with tentacles for hair, fins in place of ears, and the same markings. The color of their ink depends on that of their tentacles. Strangely, they use weapons to blast ink, instead of their bodies, possibly meaning their ink sacs only serve the purpose of reloading their weapons. Despite being gill-breathers, they are able to get oxygen from the air like humans, enabling them to breathe it. Strangely water seems to be lethal to them, as they dissolve in it.
They live very human-like lives, and also enjoy playing "turf war" games, in which teams of different colors compete to cover an entire field in their teams' ink. Their swarm enemies are the Octarians, a tentacle-like species of octopus.
