An energetic octopus who loves music, Rawktapus, or Rawk to those who know him, is the lead vocalist and guitarist for The Down Belows, singing and shredding on his personal Anchor Axe, lovingly named SVARTE BLEKKEN. Rawktapus started the band with his friends Ika and Sledge, while growing up in the small mining town of Trenchtown. While he loves to play and perform for his friends and neighbors, Rawk has big dreams to become a famous rock star with his friends. His excitable optimism and boundless energy make it difficult for him to plan ahead or think things through, but Rawk knows that one day he and the Down Belows are gonna be legends.

The heart of the Down Belows, Sledge is a Hammerhead shark and bassist for the Down Belows who custom builds his own guitars out of old surf boards. His huge appetite and ability to digest anything makes it easy! Normally, Sledge is rather timid and soft-spoken, but around Rawk and Ika, he's beginning to find his voice and speak up when he has to.

This spunky squid is a distant relative of Rawktapus and hails from the Eastern Sea. Her fierce temper makes her the perfect drummer for The Down Belows, and banging away on drums is where Ika feels the most at peace. Opinionated and short-tempered, Ika is very particular about the kind of music she respects, and she isn't afraid to let anyone know it. She has a particular dislike of Pop music, but refuses to elaborate.

The top pop-star of Aquapolis, Jelli is the epitome of diva. Fame has gone to her head, and has made her unable to see that fans are dissatisfied with the music she's putting out. Jelli doesn't care, though, leaving the creative duties to her overworked staff as long as she can get her moment in the spotlight, but when Rawktapus and the Down Belows begin to steal some of that, this Sea Nettle is going to prove herself a deadly adversary.

Richard Moby is the CEO and president of White Whale Records, the last recording label in Aquapolis, made through a series of ruthless corporate take-overs. Moby sees himself as the ultimate taste-maker, and enjoys holding the fates of his clients in his fins. He's been looking for the next big thing to get his hooks into, and The Down Belows are looking like the perfect trophy.
