Shiri Ika, brother of Purah Ika, had always been just a bit jealous of his sibling's natural musical talent. While Purah and Tem ran off to create Squid Culture, Shiri grouped up with his best friend Amp Fumen to create a podcast. While broadcasting, Amp taught Shiri how to play the drums, and the two started writing music together on the side.
Shiri, like his sister, is energetic and outgoing to a fault. He is shown to get excited easily and is prone to getting a little loud when he isn't paying attention. Amp mentions that Shiri's head always seems to be in the clouds. He is just as empathetic as Purah if not more, though instead of tears, he tends to shut down and become rather quiet when he's feeling down. However, he's rather quick to cheer up, most of the time treating insults pointed his way as a joke. He's dedicated and determined, playing Turf War all day when Splatfests are happening.
Amp is a calm soul, always making sure to stay cool and collected. He has a grounded personality, contrasting the daydreaming Shiri, and often keeps situations under control when things are getting too exciting. He mentions that his own singing voice isn't that great (though Shiri always encourages him to keep practicing) and though he knows his guitar skills are great, he strives to remain humble. Amp's dream is to create music that inspires others, though he's often portrayed as lazy, sleeping all day during Splatfests rather than going out to play Turf War.
AmpShiri announces Splatfests after Squid Culture announcements, though they don't always side with the same idol.
