Camus Comprix is the first composite being, created from exactly ninety-nine unwound body parts. He was created by Proactive Citizenry to be the combination of the best of humanity.

Biography

Cam first came into being and spent the beginning of his life in a mansion in a leper colony turned research facility on Kalaupapa in Molokai in Hawaii. He was indoctrinated into the world with the help of Roberta. He was introduced to public being greeted, like many scientific advancements, with fear and amazement. He was considered by some to be of the elite of humanity, and not human at all to others.

Cam unwittingly gave himself his first name. During the first weeks he was rewound, he was trying to find the right word for "camera", and mentioned "Cam. Moo." among other words. Roberta mistakenly understood that Camus was proposing a name for himself, which pronounced very similarly with the last name of Albert Camus, a French-Algerian existential philosopher. From that moment, "Camus" was officially used as his first name.

When it was decided he was to have a female partner, he saw a photo of Risa Ward, for whom he felt an instant attraction because of the former owner of a rewound part in his body, Samson, having a crush on Risa during his life. Risa was abducted by Proactive Citizenry and forced under blackmail to work with him. During their brief time together, Camus developed feelings for her.

When Risa escaped, he ran away in search for her. While on his cross-country journey to find her, he ended up at the Arapache Rez. While there, he was captured by Una Jacali. As it turns out, he has the hands of her ex-fiancé, Wil Tashi'ne, who had been captured by parts pirates. Camus got Wil's guitar skills, so Una imprisoned Camus and forced him to play for her. Connor Lassiter found them and helped Camus out. Though he hated the thought of Camus and his association with Risa, and vice versa, he allowed him to join him and Grace Skinner on their trip to Ohio to Sonia Rheinschild's home.

When they get to Sonia's, Camus got to see Risa again. They all hid in the house of Hannah Steinberg. While there, the police stormed the house for him. He gave himself up, lest the police realize that Risa and Connor were there. The police took him back to Proactive Citizenry. One there, Roberta put a virus in his mind that killed any thought of Risa as soon as it enters his head.

A few back at Kalaupapa, he discovered the Citizenry's plan to make an army of beings like him. He exposed the plan using hidden cameras and got Roberta to make a live confession about everything Proactive Citizenry has been doing. After the downfall of Proactive Citizenry, he permitted a wedding between Wil—through the hand attached to him and dozens of other people who received parts from Wil—and Una. After the wedding, he returned to Kalaupapa with Una to council the fifty new Composites.

Personality

He is supposed to be the best of humanity, but he is in a way human because he is a combination of unwound parts and thus has flaws. He is also the worst in humanity's eyes. He is made of parts from people that were deemed indecent. Either for stealing, lying, or causing damage to others, property or self. He is not any "one" of the people that make up him, but himself.

Relationships

Risa Ward

Cam finds himself attracted to Risa Ward. This is mainly because Risa was the last crush of the the math genius in him, Samson, before he was unwound. When he sees a photo of Risa, he recognizes her.

Roberta

Roberta is the woman assigned to oversee Cam's progress and development. At times like a mother, Cam grew to despise Roberta, seeing her as the woman who only cares for him because it is her job.

Una Jacali

When Una Jacali first heard Cam playing the guitar, she thought that her late fiance Wil Tashi'ne had come back from the dead and was devastated to learn that it was Cam, rewound with Wil's hands. The pair eventually developed feelings for one another, with Una still harboring deep feelings for Wil.
