Camille is one of the most interesting champions in League of Legends and she has pretty unique lore. But who is she exactly?

Top laners love Camille. She has great gap closes, is easy to play around as a jungler and her true damage makes the kit perfect. But how exactly did she get so strong. I mean, these legs don´t seem too natural, do they? Ever wondered what is told about Camille in her lore?

With Riot changing some lore, it'll be interesting to see how they update Camille's lore, but for now her lore is still the same on the official League of Legends universe story. So for now, it seems the brackern still play a role in her story, but how? 

League of Legends: Who Is Camille?

Camille is part of the Ferros clan, which is deeply involved in the machinations of Piltover and Zaun. The centuries-old family business is based on the trade in synthetic hextech crystals and enjoys a high reputation in Runeterra. In order to secure its prosperity and monopoly, the clan does a lot of research into human improvements and will stop at nothing.

Its motto is: "For familiy I give"

And this is where the lore of Camille comes into play. Due to family business, Camille was trained in combat, reconnaissance, and interrogation. As the eldest daughter of the former clan leader, she became head of the intelligence office. In order to be able to fulfil her “duties” and not be defeated by her opponents, she took on further refinements, including bladed legs, grapple-spindled hips, and other, minor hex-augmentations, to push her beyond human limits.

As a last step she even got her heart removed and replaced by a hextech one

A huge part of the familie´s core was worried, that Camille would lose her humanity with her heart. But as far as they could tell, she seemed to have remained the same

What Are Hextech Crystals?

Currently it's a bit muddled. Since Riot revealed that Arcane is canon, the creation of hextech has also been completely altered. But judging by Camille's lore on the official website, the brackern are still mentioned... so for now let's go over the original hextech lore, but we will be sure to update it once Riot also gives an update to Camille's backstory.

Hextech crystals are the namestones of the Brackern, an ancient race of the desert of Shurima. The Brackern used the crystals to record their lives and histories and then pass on to other Brackern once they die.

They hold great powers which the explorer guild of Piltover discovered. They managed to fuel their inventions and other mechanical structures with them. LoL lore tells, that the race of Brackern got wiped out completely. Only Skarner is left with a lonely mission to find all the missing crystals and return them home.

For now we will have to take this with a grain of salt, because, as mentioned, Riot is currently reworking a large part of the Runeterra lore and with Skarner getting a VGU, the brackern have been completely removed from Shurima and put into another region. So for now it'll be interesting to follow how Riot will change everything.
