Chef is the octopus chef (and perhaps owner) of the sushi restaurant first visited by Mischief and Henryk in Episode 09. He is theorized to be a being affected by cerebral electricity due to the fact that he is sapient, capable of speech in both English and Japanese, and can survive outside of a marine environment.
Little is known about how Chef came to be. Some fan theories speculate that he, like the Ghost, was once a human who's cerebral electricity took a different form after their death. Others think that he might be a regular octopus who somehow gained sapience and his enormous size from cerebral electricity.
Chef is first encountered by Henryk and the viewer in Episode 09, but it's clear that he and Mischief go back further than that. Chef is able to recognise Mischief by voice and color when he enters the restaurant as Henryk's suit and hat. He also confesses to having visions "again", implying that he and Mischief have had conversations about that topic before.
Chef is a large blue octopus with downcast red eyes, wearing a chef's hat and holding a culinary knife and ladle. He looks somewhat old with a slightly worn-looking mantle/head and bags under his eyes.
Chef has stated that he has had "visions" before, including one where he sees KAMI. Physically, he appears to possess the ability to expand into a gargantuan size, as seen in Episode 12 when he fights with KAMI.
As his name implies, Chef works in a sushi restaurant, and can be seen using his arms to perform a variety of tasks in the kitchen at the same time, without assistance.
