He appears to share some history with Boston Lobster and his body had once been reformed. Because he always hide near Boston Lobster, he calls him "brother". As long as it's orders from "brother", he would dutifully carry out them without thinking twice.
The rigid shell provides the Pipi prawn protection. Moreover, it's also the reason why people like to repeatedly challenge them. After submerging them in fiery hot oil, it becomes crispy on the outside and soft in the inside. Its transparent red appearance and its think aroma causes people to salivate and become hungry.

There was endless darkness. Several people in white clothes came towards me. I couldn't see their faces clearly, but my intuition told me they weren't kind.
"We are here to treat you."
I didn't believe it nor did I want to answer to anything, but I couldn't move. The next second, my arm was torn.
Then, a pile of cold pipes and instruments were stuffed in. The fluorescent lamp reflected the white gloves, and the cold, white light made my eyes hurt.
Big sister? It's the voice of my sister! I opened my eyes with joy, and the instruments were inserted into my body on all sides.
My sister's voice is in front of me. She's calling me.
I struggled, the intense pain came, and everything began to distort.
My sister's voice is still echoing, the dark roar engulfs me, and the strong blood is spreading...
"No. 31, it's time for routine inspection."
The electronic sound of the machine in the room keeps repeating, reminding me of the same nightmare.
The metal door opened and light came in through the gap, reflecting on my left arm.
"How do you feel today? No. 31." The person in a white coat outside the door was repeating the same words again, and there was still a false smile on his face.
I got up and walked out without saying a word. The other person didn't seem to care about my answer.
I lay on a metal bed, with the machine overhead stretching out its fine claws and tedious examinations.
I don't know what is the meaning of this. Every day the results are almost the same, but those people always keep a page full of records.
I looked at the dark ceiling and couldn't remember how long I had been here.
About an hour passed, why is today's inspection particularly cumbersome? I turned my head impatiently.
There are more people standing outside the huge glass screen than usual, all wearing white coats that I hate.
I was about to get up when the overhead machine was pulled down, but I was locked by a sudden extension lock, and before I could respond, I was pushed into another room.
It was a new laboratory with sophisticated instruments on all sides.
"No. 31, 053th final modification experiment, began to confirm."
I can't help sneering at how much technology humans need to use to cover up their own defects and greed.
However, the final experiment was successful.
Or, humans have finally created something that will satisfy them.
The metal barrier on the drill field was easily shattered by me.
I tightened my left arm, and since the experiment was completed, I've been getting better and better with it.
But this is not enough to dilute my dislike of human beings.
Going back to the dark room, I wrapped a new bandage around my right arm, exposing a mottled scar that reminded me of my sister.
When I was summoned, the humans gave me a number, No. 31.
I was taken to a big room where there were many other Food Souls like me.
They came around, and the sound of chirping voices bored me. I didn't want to take care of them. Only the corner could make me feel more comfortable.
So, when those Food Souls play together, I always stay away from them and find a quiet place by myself.
Until a certain day, a white figure appeared in my field of vision.
"Who are you...Why do you want to follow me?"
"Ah...Was, was I found? I, I didn't mean it!"
"What are you going to do?"
"I'm No. 2. I'm here to accompany you."
"But, but, you are always alone...you'll be lonely... "
"...Not at all."
"I'll make friends with you. You can call me sister!"
"Because, because I am No. 2, yes, the first, summoned, everyone, calls me sister. "
"In the future, let's play together!"
Sister...my heart was silent.
Since then, my sister has been with me. She is like a little angel. For the first time, I have a warm feeling.
"We have a mission to save humanity."
"I, we want to live with human beings, to help human beings, so we have to accept experiments."
My sister always said that, and I believed it at that time.
Later, the Food Souls in the room were injured or disappeared one by one. There were more and more Food Souls stepping out of the door of the room, but fewer and fewer were coming back.
"Maybe, everyone is going out for an adventure. Let's wait for them to come back! For the sake of humanity, the wounds must be worth it!" My sister comforted me.
"The first summoning contract experiment failed on No. 31."
I was injured, and when I was taken back to my room, my sister was taken out.
"Sister...? Where are you going...?"
"Don't worry, I, I am going to help humanity!"
Many days later, I had recovered, but my sister didn't come back. I grabbed a white coat.
"You said experiment No. 2? Her mission has been completed and she is preparing to be destroyed."
I burst through the door of the room and rushed out. The almost identical passageway made me lose my way. Humans will soon catch up.
"Hurry up! Thirty-one is over there!"
"Report! Experiment No. 31 appears to have out of control symptoms, ready to take emergency measures!"
"Sister, where is she?"
"She has been destroyed! What are you doing?'' said the person in a white coat just now.
The message that my sister had been destroyed corroded me instantly, and a force came out of my arms uncontrollably.
Why... What is humanity...!
"Then you -- together -- destroy it."
"The physical and mental strength of experiment No. 31 has been drawn out and instructions are requested. "
"Received. Take No. 31st to the room and prepare for the amputation test.''
I felt pain all over my body and my arms felt they were torn alive.
Paralyzed in bed, I looked at the bloody scars on one side and the arms on the other, laughing at myself.
Humans, I hate.
For a long time afterwards, I was imprisoned in this room. Except for those few in white coats, no one else came with Food Souls.
I got the quietness I always wanted, but this silence made me sick.
So, I decided to break this imprisonment.
I'm going to run away. Before I am summoned in a contract.
So I started looking for the right route and timing, however, everything will always happen.
For example, my brother.
That day, the red figure, like a storm, easily destroyed the laboratory that had trapped me for so long.
I stood by and heard the sound of human panic.
"It was the weapon that escaped before, 'Boston Lobster''! How did he show up again?!"
"His strength has increased! Command all experimental subjects to attack!"
When he heard the 'experimental subject', his expression was slightly moved.
"You will be willing to be human's experimental subjects? And obey their orders?" The Food Souls faced each other, but the role of the contract made them have to do it.
"...I just want to destroy the lab, I don't want to hurt you." The Food Souls rushed up.
"If that's the case, then I won't care for you!" I saw the anger in his eyes and the explosive power in his hands.
"Oh, why don't you go with them?"
He stood on the high ruins and asked me.
"I...not the same as them."
"You...there's no contract?"
"Your left hand..."
"You are free now."
Yeah, I'm free at last, but I didn't know where to go for a while, and my sister was gone.
"Well? Why are you following me?'' When he spoke, I responded and unconsciously moved towards him.
"I..." I don't know either, maybe because he rescued me, or perhaps because of his strength. Maybe it's both.
''What's your name?"
"I'm No. 31... "
"I'm not interested in knowing these numbers. I asked for your original name. " He said a little impatiently.
"Salt 'n Pepper Shrimp..." Subconsciously blurting out, I realized the meaning of my birth.
It's as a Food Soul, not a numbered experiment.
"Come on, there's another guy named Green Curry ahead."
Only with my brother did I know that the power of a Food Soul could be used to such an extreme extent.
There is no doubt that my brother is a natural king.
My brother was not stingy with me. He taught me a lot of skills in using strength and fighting, and gave me a place to live.
My brother deserves respect and worship.
When I inadvertently shouted out my brother, he didn't object.
And I don't know when I started to think of him as my brother.
When that powerful man appeared, we were chasing clues outside Gloriville.
He wore a heavy cloak, revealing a white beard.
"Be careful." Green Curry reminded us.
"Who are you?" My brother was obviously not afraid.
"Boston Lobster, Salt 'n Pepper Shrimp, you shouldn't have escaped and destroyed the laboratory. I've come to take you away."
"Ha ha! It turned out to be a lab person. Why, you haven't been blown up yet?"
When my brother finished speaking, he rushed up.
The old man only shook his head, and a powerful force struck, and we quickly jumped away.
The old man remained silent, but the offensive was even fiercer. We couldn't dodge and were hit one after another.
Seeing that I was going to be knocked down, my brother rushed over and blocked the blow for me.
"Cough, I'm fine... You guys run away!"
When the old man saw my brother fall, he concentrated his fire on him.
My brother struggled to stand up and fought with him again.
"Green Curry, you take Pipi first!"
"Brother!" I want to help him, but the strength was too strong for me to resist.
"Pipi Shrimp, listen to your Big Brother! This man is not easy!"
Green Curry lifted me up.
"Go!" My brother shouted in the distance.
We endured the pain and tried our best to escape.
At that moment, I only hated that my strength was too small to help and protect my brother.
Later, I realized that it was the locator installed in my prosthetic limb that exposed our whereabouts.
"It's all my fault... I hurt my brother..."
"You're right. The person from the lab is wrong." Green Curry said to me.
I raised my hand and tried to smash it.
"Don't move, I can help you get rid of the locator inside. This is still useful to you."
"Also, this mask is for you. Your actions will be much more convenient in the future."
"Don't worry, my older brother, he...it won't end like this."
"Be careful on your way. Contact me if you have any problems."
I decided to find my brother's whereabouts, even if I travel all over Tierra.

"What are you still looking at? It's time to go." Behind him came the urging voice of Boston Lobster, and the Pipi Shrimp put down the newspaper in his hand and walked towards him.
Sunlight was reflected through the muddy glass, and the dust in the room was shining in the air.
Boston Lobster took out a pendant with a silver metal tag.
"It's just a little gift from me to meet you again."
"Thank you, Brother..."
The two walked out of the old archives together. Boston Lobster slowly turn back."The next task will begin soon."
