NOTE: For the sake of this wiki, this page is mainly about Camus as the leader of the Sable Order, when he reluctantly supported the evil Dolhr Empire.

So long as Grust continues to support Dolhr's ambitions, it does not matter what I know or think. I am a knight; I have a duty to fight for my motherland's glory till the very end.
~ Camus to Marth and Nyna.

Camus, is a major character in the Fire Emblem franchise. According to Prince Marth, Camus is reputed to be "the most able warrior alive" in Archanea. A general of Grust and leader of its Sable Order, Camus in a valiant knight, but unwillingly serves the warmongering Dolhr Empire when Grust allies with it because he believes loyalty to his country and liege are paramount. When the Archanean League storms the Grusthold, Camus falls defending it, but ultimately washes up on the shores of Valentia. Barely alive and amnesiac, he takes the name Zeke. Eventually his memories return, but now considering Valtenia his home, he only briefly returns to Archanea under the name Sirius to ensure the safety of his former companions Camus is a supporting antagonist in Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light and its remakes Book 1 of Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem and Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon. He is a major protagonist in the prequel BS Fire Emblem and its remake, the New Archanean Chronicles DLC of Fire Emblem: New Mystery of the Emblem. Camus is voiced in Japanese by Kazuhiko Inoue, who also voices his other two personas. In English, the Camus persona is voiced by Travis Willingham, who also voiced Garon in Fire Emblem Fates.

Appearance

Camus is a blond-haired young man with a black coat, pants and cape. Over his arms and legs, Camus wears black plated armor.

Personality

Camus is a profoundly honorable man with a strong sense of justice and compassion for others. However, as a knight Camus considers himself honor bound to unquestioningly serve his liege regardless of his personal opinions on the orders. In spite of this, he will carry out minor acts of rebellion to assist those on the other side who he believes are in the right, such as smuggling a copy of Thoron to Marth. However, Camus has occassionally been pushed to openly defy his superiors, most notably protecting Nyna from harm despite Medeus' wishes.

Biography

At the dawn of the War of Shadows, King Ludwick of Grust quickly allied with the Dolhr Empire, ruled by the cruel Medeus. Though he personally objected to Medeus' actions, Camus believed that as a knight he had no right to question his king's decisions, and so led the Sable Knights against any kingdoms that opposed Dolhr. The Sable Knights played a significant role in the downfall of the Holy Kingdom of Archanea, while the Dohlr army besieged its Millennial Palace. Not wanting Archanea to suffer further, Camus arranged with Princess Nyna to take her and the capitol custody, in a bid to protect them from crueler occupying governors. 

For two years, Camus successfully protected Archanea and Nyna from further decline; in the interim Nyna and he slowly developed a mutual affection. However, Medeus grew tired of Camus' relative generosity towards Archanea and sent an army to apprehend Nyna. In response, Camus decided to send Nyna to Prince Hardin of Aurelis. Because escorting her in an official capacity as a Grust knight would threaten the life of one of Medeus' hostages, Grust's Prince Yubello, he and subordinates Belf, Robert and Raiden deserted the Grust army. In a battle with General Brzak's Dolhr army, Camus fends them off long enough for Nyna to reach Aurelis, but is ultimately captured and imprisoned.  

Near the end of the War of Shadows, Camus was released and reinstated as leader of the Sable Knights, where he continued to fight in Medeus' service at the behest of a gravely ill King Ludwick. When the Archanean League marched on Grust, Camus defended its Grusthold with fellow general Lorenz. Despite Marth and Nyna's pleas to join their side, Camus refused to betray King Ludwick despite their conflicting principles, and was defeated in battle. His body not found later, Camus was believed to have been killed in action. 

Other Media

Fire Emblem Awakening

An Einherjar of Camus is available as a bonus ally to the Shepherds through SpotPass. Another Camus Einherjar opposes the Shepherds first and third Rogues & Redeemers DLC xenologues. In the first chapter he is the boss of a group of villianous Einharjar battling a group of heroic Einherjar the Shepherds allied with, while in the third chapter the Shepherds decided to seal both groups back into their cards.

Fire Emblem Heroes

Camus was first made available to Fire Emblem Heroes summoners on June 2, 2017 as the ninth Grand Hero Battle. His outfit is based on his design from Shadow Dragon.

Super Smash Bros.

Camus appears in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as an Ace-level Shield-type spirit using his official artwork from Shadow Dragon. When equipped to a fighter, Camus grants three support spirit slots. To obtain Camus, he must be defeated in a spirit battle, where he is represented by a Marth on Arena Ferox. This enemy Marth has stronger melee-weapon based attacks, can deliver powerful "critical hits" without warning, and has the ability to automatically heal one time when he takes enough damage. When leveled to 99, the Camus spirit evolves into a Sirius spirit.

 Quotes

Were my heart my master, I would do exactly as you say. But what sort of knight abandons his kingdom- his king!- now, when they need him the most? Would you have me toss away the life I have built as if it meant nothing at all?
~ Camus to Nyna
I have lived as a knight, and I intend to die as one. There are no other roads left for me to walk.
~ Camus affirming his principles to Nyna
That will not do. Should we sortie an official army, the alliance between Grust and Dolhr will crumble. The hostages--Prince Yubello included-- will be killed. And Medeus would no doubt burn Grust to ashes. I cannot allow that to happen!
~ Camus explaining why he cannot escort Nyna as an official knight of Grust
I know. We must escape the palace at once. Sir Hardin, in the northern state of Aurelis, has the power to protect you. I'm sure he will extend you his courtesy. Anyway, let us be off. We haven't a moment to spare. Princess, get ready.
~ Camus telling Nyna to flee
You must be Prince Marth of Altea. I have a favor to ask of you. This magic tome belongs to Bishop Boah of Archanea. General Volzhin of Dolhr has been keeping it stashed away, but it... found its way into my hands, you might say. I would appreciate greatly if you could return it to the good bishop in my stead. One other thing... Please take care of Princess Nyna. I am counting on you to keep her safe. ...I must go now. But our paths will cross again; you can be certain of that.
~ Camus as he secretly gives Marth a Thoron tome.
With this lance, Gradivus, I am all but invincible. A pity you had to waste your life.
~ Camus battling the Archanean League
Nyna... Fare...well...
~ Camus when defeated
