Squigly is a DLC character for Skullgirls. Because Lab Zero Games reached their requested donations for Squigly, she had been a free DLC character for all to acquire for a limited amount of time (the first 3 months after her release), but since has been added to the store for purchase.
Squigly is the last "surviving" member of the Contiellos, a famous line of opera singers and long-time clients of the Medici family.
Fourteen years ago, tragedy befell Squigly’s family when the Medici Mafia came close to obtaining the Skull Heart. Vitale's top assassin, Black Dahlia, was ordered to murder Squigly and her parents by the Mafia - the very people who seemed to be some of their family's closest allies. It was during this incident that she became one of the Skullgirl's undead minions. Once the threat had been defeated, only Squigly’s body was recovered, and she was buried in a service provided by Lorenzo himself.
Fast forward to the present: Bloody Marie's emergence has awoken Squigly from her long sleep. As part of the Skullgirl’s undead legion, Squigly should have become nothing more than a mindless servant of the pale maiden. However, thanks to the powers of her Parasite, Leviathan, she is spared this fate.
Having been passed through the Continello family for generations, Leviathan is refined and dotes on Squigly like her father and previous host did. This long familial history has made Squigly's bond with Leviathan deeper and more fundamental than that of most Parasites, and allows them to work harmoniously both in and out of battle like synchronized dance partners. Their unique circumstance also seems to have given them abilities beyond this world, as well.
After reawakening in New Meridian, Squigly sees Marie attacking an airship containing a fleeing Lorenzo Medici with part of a building. Her musings on Marie's apparent desire to protect the innocent bystanders while focusing her rage on the Medici Mafia were interrupted by the arrival of Parasoul and the Black Egrets, who (somewhat correctly) identified her as one of the Skullgirl's minions. After fighting Parasoul off, Squigly fled the scene, but not before using an apparition-like copy of herself to suggest that the Canopy Kingdom princess focus her attention on Marie and her active minions.
After making her escape, Squigly noted that her powers seemed to have become stronger since she last used them, which Leviathan admitted was a sign of his imperfect ability to block the Skull Heart's influence. Squigly assured her Parasite that he was doing an admirable job by simply allowing her to live after death, but then discovered - much to her horror - that someone had sewn her mouth shut during her "sleep". Realizing that the Medicis were to blame, Squigly and Leviathan set off to find Lorenzo and exact vengeance for the insult.
After defeating the Skullgirl, Double ambushes Squigly from behind. Fortunately, Filia and Samson come to their rescue, preventing her death. After Squigly and Filia decide to work together and team up against Double, Double warns Squigly that Filia is a Medici. Despite Squigly's dislike for the Medici Mafia, she decides that Filia's actions will speak for her instead.
After the fight with Double, it is revealed that Double was the person to give Selene, Squigly's mother, the Skull Heart, causing the sudden deep hatred between the Contiellos and Medicis. Although Lorenzo never claimed the Skull Heart, he made sure all Contiellos were 'silenced' (the reason Squigly's mouth is sewn shut). After this realization, Squigly destroys Double and the Skull Heart. After her mission was completed, Squigly returned to rest with Leviathan, the two of which had become inseparable, to reawaken with the return of the next Skull Girl.
After the credits, a short scene appears showing Filia and Samson putting flowers on Squigly's and Leviathan's grave, marked with 'May they rest in peace until we meet again'.
Squigly is graceful, calm and well-mannered, but tough and determined to complete her mission. Her past experience with a Skullgirl gives her a unique perspective and a greater understanding of the situation over most.
Levianthan is a very loyal parasite to Squigly through and through as well as honorable. He is said to be a gentleman, but sometimes, he has a dry wit when talking to his opponents.
She and/or Leviathan use long-range attacks to prevent close range combat. However, their mid-air attacks are quite limited and short-ranged and need to be timed correctly. Most of her ground attacks while squatting are very slow and easy to be seen and spotted at any distance on the screen but each hit does massive damage.
Like Filia, Squigly does very little of any actual fighting, merely acting as a vector for Leviathan to lash out with his attacks.

- Squigly's parasite's name, Leviathan, comes from the Judeo-Christian demonic sea monster of the same name that is one of Lucifer's minions. In demonology, the Leviathan is associated with the sin of Envy. Leviathan himself is known to quote the Christian bible.
- Leviathan goes through Squigly's right ear and out of a hole on the left side of her head. This is likely the bullet hole caused by Black Dahlia at the time of Squigly's murder.
- Squigly's "The Silver Chord" special move is a reference to Scorpion's signature spear attack from the Mortal Kombat series. Like Scorpion does, she and Leviathan say "Get over here!" as well as Leviathan occasionally saying "Come here!" when the move is executed at times.
