Kamiile Bidan is the main character of Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam and is the deuteragonist in The Knights of the Multiverse. The pilot of the Zeta Gundam and Gundam Mk-II, after the Gryps War, he helped to form the Crystal Knights to combat other evils throughout the Multiverse.
War has changed Kamille, and surprisingly, it might have been for the better. The Gryps Conflict has molded him from an emotionally vulnerable, angst-ridden teenager to a true soldier with a good head on his shoulders and a kind heart that wants the best for all of humanity (whether they be from his world or not). After joining with the Knights, Kamille has taken a position similar to his mentor Lieutenant Quattro before him, with him acting as a mentor towards his younger comrades, often consoling them about their problems & helping them to grow/overcome them, and even sometimes helps them with some of their school projects. He isn't exactly perfect at this though, with his temper sometimes getting the better of him with him snapping back at them when they say something that he violently disagrees with or makes a remark that hits a little too close to home. It also helps that with the group, he finally feels at peace. He has people who help him patch up the Zeta, watch his back in fights and just chill out with him with a movie and some pizza. He does still sometimes wish that he could return to his old life on Green Noa, but he wouldn't trade his place with his newfound family for anything.
He still hates it when someone says he has a girl's name, though.

Skills & Equipment Edit
- Hand-to-Hand Combat
- Mechanical Skills
A skill he inherited from his parents (both are Federation officers and among the main engineering team that designed the Gundam Mk-II), Kamille developed a hobby in amateur mobile suit creation in high school, best shown by how he was one of the chief designers for the Zeta.
- Piloting Skills
- Newtype Abilities
Like a select few in the Universal Century, Kamille is considered a Newtype, a new state of human evolution to help them adapt to life in space. This gives him access to several otherwise supernatural abilities, such as precognition, faster reflexes, heightened mental awareness, and even telepathy.
At first, Kamille held Starscream in contempt after their duel, not believing him saying that he didn't remember, only holding off after hearing Koji and Ryoma's testiments. However, after the team's first fight with Megatron, he finally came to an understanding of Starscream's situation, and put his differences with him aside to defeat the Black Moon Clan and Unicron. From then on, the two became good allies, often sharing both friendly and competitive dialogue in battles.
While Kamille felt uneasy towards Koji and Ryoma when the three first met (what with how much they seemed to enjoy piloting their mobile suits and fight), as they've gotten closer, he's come to thing of them as his wingmen, having his back in battles, helping him train, and even giving him a few tips on how to "improve" his relationship with Fa. He also took solace in knowing that, like him, they were once normal kids before becoming pilots to fight the good fight.
Kamille sees a little bit of himself in Candace, an emotionally-confused teenager who wants to do good.
Like Lieutenant Quattro before him, Kamille helps to train some of the new pilots.
Kamille despises the L.O.V.E.M.U.F.F.I.N. organization to the core. While he is fully aware that, like the Titans, there are good people within the organization, when it comes to the upper management, he absoletely hates them how they want to kill innocent people and cause mindless destruction just because they want to watch the world burn.
This version of Kamille is the one seen in the Zeta Gundam: A New Translation film trilogy timeline. In fact, in the series proper, his story begins right at the tail end of the third movie.
