The Guild of Calamitous Intent, the Monarch (friend)
Sri Lankan Devil Bird (Friend, Deceased)
Flying Squid makes his first appearance in Bot Seeks Bot, where he accosts Shore Leave for wearing the costume of his missing friend Sri Lankan Devil Bird. However, Brock Samson intervenes disguised as Vendata, bullying the Squid into leaving them alone. Flying Squid also calls the Monarch and informs him of Don Hell's capture of Doctor Thaddeus Venture.
In the Devil's Grip, the Jellyfish and Auntie Matter are seen lounging on lawnchairs with their feet soaking in a kiddie pool. A small squid bearing a resemblance to Flying Squid (though with no human features) also sits in the pool. Since Dr. Mrs. The Monarch had described Auntie Matter as a "spinster who shapechanges" in Return to Malice, it is not clear if this smaller squid represents the result of a romantic union between the pair or if they are merely friends hanging out with a normal squid resting nearby.
Flying Squid resides in the gated community of Malice, to where he wishes to escape the "hippies" and their "[progressive rock". In the Devil's Grip, He expresses this displeasure when the Monarch and Dr. Mrs. the Monarch are torturing Doctor Thaddeus Venture with the Bell, mistaking its noise for said progressive rock.
