The pilot of the Gundam Mk-II and the Zeta Gundam, after the Gryps War, he helped to form The Knights to combat other evils throughout the Multiverse, though more often than not has to act as team "babysitter", as he calls it, for the team's younger members alongside his teammate Sunset Shimmer.

Personality[edit | edit source]
War has changed Kamille, and surprisingly, it might have been for the better. The Gryps Conflict has molded the young man 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 Quattro Bajeena before him, with him acting as a mentor towards his younger comrades, often consoling them about the problems they're facing (both physically and mentally) & helping them to grow/overcome them. What's more, after losing almost all of his teammates during the final battle of Gryps, he's vowed to make sure he doesn't lose any more friends when he has the power to do something to help. Not again.
That said, he isn't exactly perfect at this. His temper does sometimes still get the better of him, causing him to sometimes snap back at them when they say something that he violently disagrees with or makes a remark that hits a little too close to home, and he's still plenty loudspoken and brimming with attitude. However, with his newfound spot among the group, for probably the first time in his life, he finally feels happy. Sure, he still has to deal with the odd tyrant trying to conquer the world or maniac wanting to hurt people for some sick sport, but now he has people who help him patch up the Zeta, watch his back in fights and enjoy chilling out with him with a movie and eating some pizza. Heck, he's even started to throw out the odd sarcastic comment or joke on occasion. 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 | edit source]
- Hand-to-Hand Combat
- Mechanical Skills
A skill he inherited from his parents (both were 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.
Relationships[edit | edit source]
Kamille and Sunset often take the role of "babysitters" (as they put it) for the younger members of the team, and as such, the two get along very well, establishing a solid brother/sister-type dynamic. In battle, the two will often bounce strategies off of each other and the others to see what sticks, with Kamille often providing support from his Gundams while Sunset leads the team on the ground. At "home", the two often find themselves double-heading tasks like making sure everything is running right & nobody breaks anything, breaking up childish bickering, or simply trying to calm everyone down and get them into bed (it's a lot harder than it sounds).
Despite their age difference, Kamille and Usagi are very close friends, almost to the point of thinking of each other as brother and sister.
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.
Mohm[edit | edit source]
At first, like the others, Kamille simply thought of Mohm as another part of the Glomar's crew. She was still a friend, of course, but just a casual friend. However, when she showed a desire to take up piloting bigger mechs and help out the team a lot more, Kamille, like many of the other pilots on the team, took her under his wing and helped her hone her skills. Sure, he gets annoyed by how intrusive and persistent she can seem at times, but he knows she's just trying to help in her own special way. He's also well aware of her inferiority complex and how much she hates being treated/called a piece of junk, and will quickly defend her against anyone who tries to insult her, even if its just a joke (though this mostly just stems from how straight-forward he takes things sometimes).
Keiko[edit | edit source]
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 fighting), as they've gotten closer, he's come to think of them as his wingmen, always having his back in battles, helping him train, and even giving him a few tips on how to "improve" his relationship with Fa (well, Koji at least). 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 just wants to do good. Sure, her stubbornness can be a little much at times, and especially when she tries to take charge and it comes at the cost of everyone else on the team, but he was plenty stubborn himself when he first climbed into the cockpit, so he could relate.
Catra & Amity Blight[edit | edit source]
Kamille often finds himself having to break up Catra and Amity's fights (well, at least when Sunset isn't feeling up for it).
Emily[edit | edit source]
Although the two don't interact very often, it's clear that Kamille cares about Emily as much as he does the rest of the team's younger members. He was hesitant to let her join the rest of the team in battles at first due to her zero combat experience (outside of her first one, of course), but when he saw how dedicated she was, he supported her choice all the way, and is proud to call her a valuable teammate.
Ayako[edit | edit source]
Atros[edit | edit source]
Like Lieutenant Quattro before him, Kamille helps to train some of the new pilots on the team. But, given how... unique his new trainees are, he's had to take very different directions with training all three of them.
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 absolutely hates them for how they want to kill innocent people and cause mindless destruction just because they can.
Kamille has rather mixed feelings on the Society. Now obviously, he does hate what the society stands for, the atrocities they've caused, and will fight tooth and nail to put down the psychopaths and terrorists that work alongside them, but he just can't understand why people with such extraordinary abilities can commit such horrible acts.
Lex Luthor & Grodd[edit | edit source]
As two other more madmen out to conquer all they see because they can, Kamille despises the leaders of the Secret Society. However, surprisingly enough, he respects Lex a little bit more than Grodd: at least he isn't forcing everyone in the Multiverse to turn into apes.
Notes[edit | edit source]
Kamille's dynamic with Sunset and Usagi is another nod to his old mentor, with said partnership being based off of Lt. Quattro's dynamic with his own wingmen, Roberto and Apolly Bay, with Usagi's child-like wonder and optimistic views being (sort of) parallel to Apolly's more joking attitude and Sunset's more mature attitude being comparable to Roberto's more serious and diligent nature.
