Camille is the only regular so far cast for The Originals to play human. She’s a bartender who is fascinated by the question of whether people can be born bad. After an unimaginably tragic event in her family, Cami became a psychology student in order to study human behavior, in the hopes of proving that people can’t just be “evil.” Her fixation on the subject might just help her bond with Klaus, though Cami is unaware that her corner of New Orleans is crawling with supernatural beings who toe the line between good and evil. Marcel will be drawn to her. Camille has blond hair, blue eyes and an attractive face.
