Cam is a character that appears in the Sonic the Comic series published by Fleetway Editions. She is an anthropomorphic cat and a member of B.A.R.F., a Badnik repair service that works under Dr. Ivo Robotnik.

Concept and creation

Cam was created by Mark Eyles. Hers and Bert's names were derived from the French cheese camembert.[1]

Appearance

Cam is an anthropomorphic cat with primarily orange fur, save for around her mouth, where her fur is white. She has black eyes, a black nose and long ears. She wears a blue jump suit that has some parts colored yellow, like her zipper. She also wears white gloves.

History

Cam was first seen called to the Green Hill Zone with her partner Bert by a Trooper to repair a group of Moto Bugs attacked by Sonic the Hedgehog. During the job, Cam detected a Nicenik virus in the Badnik's debris. While Cam worked on purging the virus though, she learned two Niceniks had escaped.[2] To identify the Niceniks among the hundreds of Moto Bugs, Cam had Bert deploy the Triple-S repeatedly to weed out the real Badniks.[2] Upon getting attacked by the Niceniks, Cam and Bert hunted them down and destroyed them. As Bert then rebuilt the Moto Bugs, Cam purged them of the Nicenik virus.[3]

Little over a year later, Cam and Bert were repairing some Badniks in the Hill Top Zone when Dr. Robotnik ordered them to transport Badniks from the Palmtree Panic Zone to the Green Hill Zone.[4] Though worried about this dangerous mission, Cam carried out the orders with Bert and brought the intended Badniks to the Green Hill Zone in the Ark Pod.[4][5] When the new Badniks began wiping out the native ones though, Cam was forced to evacuate the remaining Green Hill Zone Badniks.[5] As the dust settled, Cam tried in vain to negotiate with the Palmtree Panic Zone Badnks, so she came up with the plan to construct the Seven Badniks with Bert from the Green Hill Badniks' remains.[6] These Badniks forced the regnegate Badniks into submission, allowing Cam and Bert to take them back to the Palmtree Panic Zone (where they were promptly smashed by the vacationing Freedom Fighters).[7]

Personality

Cam respects Dr. Ivo Robotnik greatly, referring to him in terms such as "mighty leader" and "good Doctor Robotnik". However, she also refers to Sonic the Hedgehog as "the blue adversary", which may mean she simply gives everyone, outside of Bert, nicknames.[4]

Cam, easily being Bert's intellectual superior, dealt more in reprogramming computers when out repairing Badniks.
