Photographer, IT officer
Dashi is a Dachshund who controls all of the computers, communication devices, and steering for the Octopod. She's also the crew's official photographer, taking pictures of the different creatures the Octonauts meet. Dashi normally stays on the Octopod to coordinate missions on an advisory capacity, but she has joined in on a number of missions before and has even done a solo that involved taking photos of reef life. She has an Australian accent in the original UK version, but not in the US version; instead she has a light voice and talks like an American.
Normally, Dashi is seen in her seat up in the HQ next to crew mate Shellington, whom she has done a few missions with before. She's also usually seen in her room on the Octopod, where the decor of it reveals her as being very feminine. The walls are pink and she's normally seen either messing with her favorite camera, or sitting at her vanity. She sleeps with pink headphones listening to soothing music as seen in The Elephant Seal and "The Crab and Urchin". Dashi has a younger and well behaved sister named Koshi who is 10 and is an amateur detective who helped the Octonauts.
Her fur is brown, wears a pair of hair clips (one blue, one pink) on her hair which joins to her pair of ears, she wears a pink skirt on her waist, and a brown shirt. Like the rest of the Octonauts, she wears a blue hat with the Octonauts logo on it, as well as a pair of blue boots with their logo on each one.

When Captain Barnacles call for an Octo Alert, Dashi is just usually found sitting on her bed doing something or at the controls in HQ. This is also the same for the launch bay. Sometimes Captain Barnacles lets her sound the Octo Alert, but not very often.
