|First, I should make a quick note about the 2
different Cammys. In 1993's Super Street Fighter 2, we met 19 year old Delta Red Cammy.
She was a good guy English Secret Service agent suffering from amnesia, so she could only
remember what had happened to her since the age of 16. Later, in the SF Zero series (which
takes place before SF2), we met 16 year old Shadowloo Cammy. She's as evil as they come,
and she's Vega's personal bodyguard and #1 assassin. In other words, we met the amnesiac
Delta Red Cammy first, and then we went back in time and saw what she was like before the
amnesia. Same character, but 2 totally different people.
This biography is all about the good 19 year old Delta Red Cammy. Since we were originally given her story in reverse, it's okay if you are learning about her that way too. To know one Cammy, you really don't have to know the other.
I've tried to piece together her storyline as best as I could with the facts I've learned from games, CDs, books, and comics. I had to consider a lot of material when I put together this storyline. The foundation is 100% official Cammy storyline, and all the 'cracks' are filled in with the the most logical and likely info from other published sources. Enjoy!
|CHAPTER 0 -
Cammy is a 19 year old amnesiac. She's also an undercover agent for the Intelligence Department of the English Secret Service, MI-6. Specifically, Cammy is a member of an elite Special Forces anti-terrorist assault unit called "Delta Red."
You might think it's amazing that a 19 year old girl with amnesia could make it to the top ranks of the Secret Service, but that's just the half of it. Cammy's a very special girl...
CHAPTER 1 - On the steps of the English Secret Service Training Center
One night, 3 years before Street Fighter 2, Colonel Wolfman discovered an unconscious girl lying on the front steps of the English Secret Service Training Center. He took her in and did what he could for her. He was very curious to know what on earth this young girl was doing KO'd in a restricted area. He had many questions that he wanted answers to, but when she awoke, she had absolutely no memories.
Even with the vast resources of MI-6, they could find no information as to who she was, where she came from, or how she got to be where she was found. The only clue they had, was a dog tag that said CAMM740106, but that didn't help.
mystery girl didn't even have a name, so Colonel Wolfman used the first 4 letters of the
dog tag to create the name "Cammy". And since was starting life anew, he gave
her the surname of "White", because 'white' represents purity. They
assumed that 740106 meant January 6, 1974. Her birthday? No birth records checked out for
her, but that seemed about right. Although she now had a name and birthday, she was no
less a mystery than when the Colonel first found her.
Cammy's personality can be summed up as 'extremely temperamental'. At the worst of times, she was stubborn, rebellious, impulsive, foul tempered, cocky, and even a little bit cruel... she liked to fight and tease her opponents, like a cat plays with a mouse. At other times, she was curious, enthusiastic, funny, and all that good stuff. However, her work was tough and very serious, and her personal life was often lonely, sad, and frustrating, so that ultimately lead to a lot of moodiness. (even more than a regular girl ^_^ )
It was assumed that her mental state was a result of the trauma of amnesia, and the fact that she was still very ignorant of the real world... after all, she was basically only 3 years old. Cammy tried to do her best, and got a lot of help from her teammates/friends, but those traits were very deeply rooted in Cammy's personality (deeper than anyone ever suspected).
Colonel Wolfman was very concerned for Cammy. She was like
an adopted daughter to him, so he hated to see her suffer. Also, if she was going to
become a member of Delta Red, she had to be mentally as well as physically tough. In an
attempt to help her ease her life, he advised her to avoid all work and stress when she
was off duty. To Cammy, cleaning her flat, doing dishes, taking out the trash, etc.,
was work and stress, so under the Colonel's 'orders', Cammy rarely did those chores.
Consequently, her flat (apartment) was a total mess!
|CHAPTER 6 - Shocking news! Cammy's SSF2X ending.|
|Cammy - "Tell me about my
Vega - "How could you forget about me, Cammy? Don't you remember, I..."
Cammy - "All that I remember is that you set me up and tried to kill me, but only succeeded in scarring my face! How could you do this to me?"
Vega - "I had feelings for you! I did not try to kill you! You had an unfortunate accident and lost your memory! Don't you remember? We were in love!"
|Cammy - "No! This can't be possible. I couldn't fall in love with a man like you!"|
|Col. Wolfman - "Our mission
has been completed. Let's go home."
Cammy - "Wait! What if what he says is true, I'm not the person I thought I was!"
Luwanda - "Don't believe that slime ball Cammy!! No one could love a loser like him."
Cammy - "You're right! Now Vega can be scarred with the nightmare of defeat."
|Cammy - "Lets go home guys!"|
|Cammy enjoys her new life in England as a member of Delta Red...|
Obviously, what Cammy learned was something that she could never have imagined. She was dying to know truth, but when she learned it, she wanted nothing more to forget it again. They say "Be careful of what you ask for... you just might get it!" One Cammy mystery was solved only to reveal many more hidden behind it.
Luckily, before Cammy had time to freak out too much, her teammates arrived on the scene. Although strong in body, Cammy's mind was in no shape to deal with the strange news. Learning more about her past only made things worse. But, when her teammates told her that Vega was scum, Cammy knew they were right. She could never love a man like that! And if she did, then she was a totally different person.
That's when Cammy realized that the past is gone - whatever it might have been. Her life started over 3 years ago, and all that she really can do is just go forward. Cammy created a new life for herself. Even if she has no idea who she was before age 16, she knows who she is now. She has a home, a job that she's good at, and great friends... what more could anybody want in life!?
|What does Cammy know
of her past?
She really knows nothing of her past. Vega told her some stuff, but I don't think she believed it. She knows that nothing Vega says or does can be trusted. I suppose that she's still as in the dark about her past as she was before all this happened.
After SF2, Cammy goes home with a new appreciation for who and what she is. And most importantly, she goes home with the people who are her friends, teammates, and family. The last picture of her SF2 ending shows her playing with a kitten on the streets of London. I think this all means that she's come to grips with who and what she is - she's Cammy, a member of Delta Red!
If we ever see another Cammy, expect her to be strong and confident - both physically and mentally. Nothing will hold her back... she's gonna do whatever she wants. I think Cammy will put all her energy into the future. She's got a lot of potential!
The ugly truth...
Delta Red Cammy doesn't really have any idea, but for once, Vega was more or less telling the truth! If you are not familiar with Shadowloo Cammy, then you're in for some surprises! (check out my Shadowloo Cammy History for all the details)
Even though she has come a long way, and has the support of her Delta Red teammates, if she ever found out the ugly truth about who and what she really was (and still is), she would probably lose it.
The old saying goes, "What you don't know can't hurt you." That's basically true. Lets all pray that Cammy never learns the truth, and is allowed to continue her new life in peace.
The future (why Cammy's such a great character)
The true greatness of Cammy's character is that she has so much potential for more stories! After SSF2, hundreds of different things could happen to her...
STOP! Okay, as I write this (May, 2000),
news of a new Cammy is just coming out. In the year 20XX, she's a member of the
Anti-Robot Special Troops, and she fights to restore order in a world controlled by
terrorists. I call her ARST Cammy. For more on Gunspike/Cannon Spike, Cammy's
new game, check out the ARSF Cammy
|Super Street Fighter 2 Cammy Gaiden by Masahiko Nakahira
This is probably the most famous Cammy aside from the game because it's been published in most major languages! BTW, if you want a copy, click on the picture to go to Amazon.com for more info...
This comic is a collection of 6 comic chapters about Delta Red Cammy. In one, Cammy is assigned a little 'test' mission. Later, she and Guile go undercover to investigate the organization sponsoring the Battle Rave tournament. Then, Cammy gets betrayed by a friend, kidnapped, and has to escape from a submarine. And finally, Cammy mixes it up with her arch-rival Balrog! First there's a big fight in the jungle, and later she takes on Vega and Balrog at dinner.
It's a lot of fun, and the art is perfect for Cammy! If you don't have it, please check it out. If you'd like to see something from the comic, check out more on Cammy Gaiden... There are pictures, additional info, and a link to where you can order your own copy. By the way, there's also a 7th chapter that was never translated officially, so I did it myself... it's over there on the left, under "Gaiden pt. 7".
RJ Bailey's Cammy History and the USA Network SF cartoon
There was once an SF cartoon on the USA Network that said Cammy's parents were diplomats from England. In that story, Vega killed her parents, took in Cammy, and used her as a guinea pig for his super-soldier experiments. She survived and became the fighter she is now. Personally, I think that's probably what happened. That makes sense, and it explains why she's British. For a great story on the subject, be sure to check out RJ Bailey's Cammy History fan fic! (also over there on the left)
*NOTE* Does anybody out there have any of the 3 USA Network SF cartoons that deal with Cammy on tape? If you do, please contact me!!
Cammy History novels by Miss Yuka Minakawa
Speaking of Cammy History stories, there were 2 novels published in Japanese about Cammy (by Yuka Minakawa). There's a link to the complete story over there on the left... under "Book reports"
Anyhow, it's basically a story about Cammy from the SSF2 timeline. It's kinda complicated, so it's hard to give a simple summary here. The story revolves around Cammy and a Shadowloo assassin (an ex-partner of Shadowloo Cammy) who comes to kill Delta Red Cammy. And along the way, we learn a lot about who Cammy was, how she became Delta Red Cammy, and who Delta Red Cammy is now.
What's most interesting, is that this was written before the official Shadowloo Cammy was created, but it was obviously a big influence on her character. And the idea of the Shadowloo Dolls (with Juni and Juli) no doubt started in these 2 books!
SSF2 Cammy Gaiden Drama CD
What's a CD Drama? Well, it's a story on CD... they have voice actors playing out the story, and there are sound effects to go with everything that's happening. It's just like a movie - only made to be heard, not seen.
This story takes place shortly after Cammy becomes a Delta Red member. Cammy goes undercover with a guy named Warren, and they to Columbia to check out a paramilitary organization called the "Neiba Cartel". It sounds like a simple mission at first, but it turns out to be much more...
This is a great CD because it really does a good job of showing Cammy's personality - especially that she's still immature and impulsive. I'm working on a transcript of the entire 45 minute story, but it's not quite done yet. When it finished, it'll go under the "Drama CD" link over there on the left...
Street Fighter 2 Animated Movie
Although Cammy was in every ad for the movie, she only had 30 seconds of action. But, it was definitely the coolest 30 seconds of the movie!! In about 20 seconds, she rushes into top security, takes out 6 guys and assassinates 1.
Anyhow, that was not the real Delta Red Cammy! That was something like a mix of Shadowloo and Delta Red Cammy. In SF2, Cammy is at no time brainwashed!! I guess by this time, Capcom had already started to destroy her character from the pretty, tough and charismatic undercover agent, to the mindless goon.
Street Fighter 2 V - TV series
Who the hell is that?! No scar, new outfit, religious, not a member of Delta Red anymore, no English accent... and NO PIGTAILS!! Why on earth did they change literally EVERY detail besides the name? Whatta mess. If I ever catch the guy or girl who's responsible for this outrage, I'm gonna...
Although it's not really Cammy as far as looks go, the story is pretty interesting nonetheless. That's actually very close to her personality, but it's a little bit colder. If you want to know more, check the transcript of Cammy's SF2V appearance... just click the "SF2V TV series" link over there on the left.
Street Fighter 2 - live action movie
Yes, Hollywood tried to make a Street Fighter 2 movie with real people! It was doomed from the start. At least it didn't focus on Ken, Ryu, and all those lame old clones.
The story focuses on Guile (Jean Claude van Damme) but Cammy is pretty important too. She works closely with Guile. BTW, Cammy is played by Australian pop superstar Kylie Minogue. Not too bad I guess...
Anyhow, the story isn't even worth mentioning. But, I gotta note that Cammy didn't really wear her normal outfit. It was basically like Cammy's outfit but blue and with pants. However, in the screen captured video game based on the movie, Kylie did dress in Cammy's real outfit. Check out the SF2 Movie gallery on the Game .GIFs page for pictures!
|This is all that I have on the team so far.
There's not much that's official, but I've gathered up and made sense of as much as
I could. The problem is that they all kinda make up their own 'facts'. For instance, if
you have the SSF2 Cammy Gaiden Comic, you'll notice that Nakahira made Colonel Wolfman
somebody else. And he's also somebody else in Yuka Minakawa's Cammy History novels. But,
he's one of the characters that Capcom actually designed, so I know exactly who he
is. Arrggghhh... you can see the problem. But, I think this turned out pretty good
nonetheless. Let's hope we learn some more in the future...
Cammy and Delta Red
Cammy - You know who she is!! If you don't know, go back to the top of this page and start all over a again!
Colonel Wolfman - Wolfman is the older guy with the long hair and big scar across his left eye. He's the team leader, and of course he's the guy who saved Cammy. The Colonel is not only her savior, sponsor, and team leader, but he's also like a father to Cammy. He's a good man.
BTW, here's a picture by one of my very favorite artists, Miss Mami Itoh... Colonel Wolfman
Luwanda - She's other girl on the team with long and wild blonde hair. Luwanda is the 2nd in command, and acts like a big sister to Cammy. And when you check out that picture above, be sure to notice that really big knife strapped to her back! Cool, huh? I'd love to see more of her and that knife!
McKoy - He's the really big guy with the cybernetic right eye. Nothing at all is known about him...
Gims - He's (she's?) the little kid on the team. Nothing is known of this Delta Red member either! It's not even agreed on whether it's a boy or a girl! Probably a boy...
Lt. Hanna - She's the '6th' member who coordinates things from the base. Hanna keeps tabs on who, what, where, why, when, and how. She has short brown hair (not pictured above). Hanna is technically smart, but she doesn't have much common sense. She's like Cammy's best friend. BTW, Hanna is a Nakahira creation, but she seems pretty important, so I'm counting her.
Miscellaneous - Although the main team consists of only 5 members, there are a number of Delta Red members stationed around the world. One example of this, is Warren from the Cammy Drama CD. And of course there are all sorts of agents within the English Secret Service who sometimes help.
About the team...
One thing that makes Delta Red special, is the fact that they train not to use weapons. Sometimes they do (like Luwanda with her big knife), but they try to accomplish all their goals with their skills and smarts. A great example of this, and why they do this, is when Cammy escapes from the submarine in the Cammy Gaiden comic. If you don't know what happened, that's another reason for you to pick up that comic! In the end, it's all about the mind and the body.
You already read about Cammy's extreme induction test into Delta Red, where she had to survive the jungles of South America. Another thing that the team does, is full contact training sessions. They go at each other full force... nobody has died or been hurt too seriously yet, but it's always possibility! Delta Red is for the best of the best - no exceptions.
Well, that's it for now, but there's still more that I haven't worked through yet. So, expect expansions... and eventually a Delta Red Page. (would be nice to have some fan art for the Delta Red page...)
|This little section is just for some random
thoughts, observations, trivia, and other interesting stuff like that...
The meaning of the name "Cammy"
"Your name Cammy has given you tenacity of purpose and has made you extremely independent. Whatever you undertake, you approach from your own point of view, and others either have to conform to your ideas or go their own way and leave you to work things out for yourself. You are so narrowly focused in your pursuits that you frequently overlook the little personal considerations and attentions that create a bond of understanding and sense of companionship. Thus it is difficult for you to merge your efforts harmoniously with others. In the home, you can inadvertently be offhand and abrupt when you would really like to show your affection. In circumstances that require a little finesse, you find that you are inclined to be too direct and straight to the point and suffer frustration in your personal relationships as a result. Tension could affect the eyes, ears, teeth, or sinuses. Frequent head colds or severe headaches are potential problems."
I don't believe that she's not. Somehow, Cammy is
English... as far as I'm concerned.
By the way, as far as animation from the games go, I think
Delta Red Cammy looks much better. The way she is drawn, the way she moves, and even her
posture is better. Check the Game .GIFs Page for hundreds of pictures and animations
of Delta Red and Shadowloo Cammy taken directly from the games!
I don't know if you know, but the Brits are totally freaked out about genetically modified things. They ban and protest as often as they can. It would be funny to see them try and protest Cammy! She looks like a sweet girl, but she's got a notoriously short temper. Heh heh heh... the silly hippies would get a beatin'.
Where the hell is Delta Red Cammy
|Well, not that you've read it all, what do
you think? I was right, wasn't I... Cammy is great character! (the best)
I hope I was able to explain Delta Red Cammy well enough for you. The basic idea of her character is not so difficult, but there's a lot of information. Please read through it a 2nd time if you're still a bit confused. After that, if you still have some questions, please feel to e-mail me.
Thanks for reading through this. I hope you learned a lot, and I hope that you're excited to learn and see more of Cammy!! (more is on the way)
