General

  • Camille is one of 17 champions without a single Ability power icon ability power ratio on any ability: AatroxSquare Aatrox, CamilleSquare Camille, DariusSquare Darius, DravenSquare Draven, GarenSquare Garen, KalistaSquare Kalista, KaynSquare Kayn, KindredSquare Kindred, KledSquare Kled, OlafSquare Olaf, PykeSquare Pyke, RivenSquare Riven, TalonSquare Talon, UrgotSquare Urgot, VayneSquare Vayne, XayahSquare Xayah, ZedSquare Zed.
  • Camille was the last champion released in 2016, designed to make players 'feel like in-control badasses'.
  • Camille's passive is so far the only instance of a shield that exclusively protects from physical damage.
  • Camille is the French derivative of Latin Camilla, feminine form of cognomen Camillus.
    • Camillus/a means 'temple attendant,' and has no Latin root. Earlier forms include Greek Κάδμος-Κάμιλλος-Κᾰσμῖλος-Κᾰδμῖλος, loaned from Pre-Greek *Hatʸmilʸ-.[1]
    • The name Camille could also be a reference to the mythological warrior Camilla who appears in the second half of Vergil's Aeneid on the side of the Rutulians. She is a warrior virgin queen of the Volsci and serves under the goddess Diana. She was said to be so swift-footed she could run through a wheat field without breaking the tops of the stalks and run across the ocean without wetting her feet.
    • Her clan's name Ferros possibly combines two unrelated Latin words: ferus "wild, fierce" & ferrum "iron".[2]
  • Her dance references the Airflare, a breakdance move.
    • A side-by-side comparison can be seen here.
  • In the Awaken video, Camille's eyes change color when she approaches JhinSquare Jhin
    • Camille’s changing eye color is an allusion to her in-game passive, where she gains a shield based on the damage type of the champion she’s attacking. That shot in the cinematic is her realizing that Jhin has set a trap, and since it’s Camille, her reaction is to first analyze the threat before jumping into action.[3]
    • It is confirmed the events in the video is canon, but may have not happened yet.[3]

Development

  • Camille is voiced by Emily O'Brien.
  • Her production names (Lady Em, The Gray Lady, The Left Hand of Piltover, Diver, Cyborg, MI6, Mary Poppins, Hookshot Hookshot) were used to convey aspects of her personality.[4]
  • During her original reveal, CamilleSquare Camille had the surname Medarda. She was later renamed and placed in the Ferros clan before the official release.
  • CamilleSquare Camille and Kai'SaSquare Kai'Sa were originally one champion named Husk, the Hive Commander, a female mercenary from Zaun who was once CaitlynSquare Caitlyn's partner before she defected after CaitlynSquare Caitlyn paralyzed her in a shootout.[5]

Lore

  • Camille is an 80-year-old augmented living person whose Hextech heart has allowed her to age much more slowly than usual.
    • Her augmented body as well as her undercover shadow ops have earned her the moniker 'The Gray Lady' (the ViktorSquare Glorious Evolved's patron saint).
  • The Weakest Heart takes place after Severed Ties.
  • It is hinted at that Camille is the one who killed ViSquare Vi's parents.
  • According to SwainSquare Swain, Camille is heavily hinted to be "C" in CaitlynSquare Caitlyn's lore.
