THE ORIGINS OF THE SQUID

Originally a high school nickname given to Lucas by a bully because of his height and the way he walked, Lucas embraced the nickname when he realized that more people called him Squid (or Squiddy) than his actual name. His nickname eventually influenced the naming of his internet username, Squidmaster23. This went on to influence the first trainer, the Squidtrainer, and eventually the name of the company, Squid industries.
