A general description about my OS (Original Settlement)

The Octarian neighborhood (can become its own town if an abandoned section of Inkopolis becomes bigger) is a traditional Octarian settlement. Octolings are highly valued to the point where a king and queen of sorts is placed at the very top, but this settlement is also a safe place for the other Octarians. Visitors from other species are allowed to, well visit, but they don't get permission to actually live there. This is because the Octarian neighborhood also serves as a center for research and development for Octarian society that will eventually migrate to the surface.

There are examples of research and development like breeding Zapfish, repelling water waves, and creating transparent ink that can be swam into by any cephalopod regardless of ink color. Interference with those things are highly intolerable and as such, the neighborhood have it's own set of laws separate from Inkopolis itself. Despite all of this, there is actually a lot more freedom in the neighborhood walls than an outsider might think. An Octoling or Octarian can live there for free as long as they provide funds for the neighborhood itself since research and development require funds to move forward. Living there for free is possible due to the Octarians there already having developed a way to combine oxygen and hydrogen to create infinite water as well as using any sort of energy production method that doesn't involve burning anything to create it, so a positive side effect being that there are no pollutants created from energy production.

Octolings in that neighborhood are seen as potential parents for future generations so the Octarian species can keep going. The Octoling king and queen are from opposite Octarian species that actually used to be one species Octarian species originally: the Ringed Octarians and the Crimson Octarians. Octolings from these two species who crossbreed with the other half are eventually blessed with an Octoling child who has a very high chance at succeeding in life due to the recombination of the two genes that were split apart. Unknown to most, this will spark the inevitable end of separate gene Octarians while the recombined Octarians will be the only ones of these two species left. But those that do know understand that this needs to happen to avoid division of their society.

Will the Octarian neighborhood grow into a separate city-state?

Does the Octarian neighborhood have labs to breed evolved Salmonids? Does Mr. Grizz live there?

Not at the current moment, it could happen, but given how they view Salmonids as savages, they will only breed Salmonids if they become an endangered species, and no, they simply won't accept shady individuals running any important operation at all, so Mr. Grizz doesn't live there.

Also, forgot to mention the punishments for breaking the laws in the neighborhood. First is a serious warning, but this only counts for less severe crimes. If a law is broken the second time by the same individual, this individual is sent to prison, but for more severe crimes, this punishment happens immediately the first time. The third and final punishment is a permanent solution, which is banishment from the neighborhood entirely, this is the second punishment dolled out to those who already committed one of the more severe crimes the first time and commits another more severe crime. Visitors who commit the crimes are banned from visiting the neighborhood and are reported to Inkopolis's law enforcement if the crimes are more severe, but for less severe crimes, only the ban occurs.


The laws of the Octarian neighborhood include but are not limited to (the levels of crime committed is noted in the parenthesis):

No splatting of Octolings unless they are tied to a Spawn Point. (More severe)

No splatting of tentacle Octarians at all. (More severe)

Defacing buildings is not allowed unless permitted by the owners. (Less severe)

Tempering with research and development is not allowed unless done for a really good reason. (More severe)

Self-defense and defending others are the only valid reasons in which an individual can attack another. (More severe)

Destruction of property is not allowed unless the owner gives full permission. (Less severe if minor, more severe if major)

Can you draw a map of the neighborhood? I want to see where everything is.
