General

  • Camille is one of 18 champions without a single Ability power icon ability power ratio on any ability: Aatrox OriginalSquare Aatrox, Camille OriginalSquare Camille, Darius OriginalSquare Darius, Draven OriginalSquare Draven, Garen OriginalSquare Garen, Kalista OriginalSquare Kalista, Kayn OriginalSquare Kayn, Kindred OriginalSquare Kindred, Kled OriginalSquare Kled, Olaf OriginalSquare Olaf, Pyke OriginalSquare Pyke, Riven OriginalSquare Riven, Sett OriginalSquare Sett, Talon OriginalSquare Talon, Urgot OriginalSquare Urgot, Vayne OriginalSquare Vayne, Xayah OriginalSquare Xayah, Zed OriginalSquare Zed.
  • Camille was the last champion released in 2016, designed to make players 'feel like in-control badasses'.
  • Her design may have been influenced by Gazelle from the movie Kingsman: The Secret Service.
  • 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.
  • She was first mentioned in pre-rework Evelynn OriginalSquare old3 Evelynn's color story The Shadows Beckon which is no longer canon.

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.[3]
  • During her original reveal, Camille OriginalSquare Camille had the surname Medarda. She was later renamed and placed in the Ferros clan before the official release.
  • Camille OriginalSquare Camille and Kai'Sa OriginalSquare Kai'Sa were originally one champion named Husk, the Hive Commander, a female mercenary from Zaun who was once Caitlyn OriginalSquare Caitlyn's partner before she defected after Caitlyn OriginalSquare Caitlyn paralyzed her in a shootout.[4]
  • Camille was created due to a need for a Fighter icon Diver champion. Hookshot Hookshot was the only ability in the kit for a long time, the idea of blade legs came after the final design of Hookshot was settled.[5]
  • An iteration of Hookshot Hookshot could swing from a point of terrain and be recast mid-swing, this swinging could take the player halfway through Summoner's Rift icon Summoner's Rift.[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 Viktor OriginalSquare Glorious Evolved's patron saint).
  • The Weakest Heart takes place after Severed Ties.
  • It is hinted at that Camille is the one who killed Vi OriginalSquare Vi's parents.
  • According to Swain OriginalSquare Swain, Camille is heavily hinted to be "C" in Caitlyn OriginalSquare Caitlyn's lore.
  • Her great-great aunt is speculated to be the escaping woman in Dreamsong.
  • In Awaken, Camille's eyes change color when she approaches Jhin OriginalSquare Jhin. This 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, her reaction is to first analyze the threat before jumping into action.[6]
    • It is confirmed the events in the video is canon, but may have not happened yet.[6]
