|Age||16 years old|
Kameo is an elven princess and the protagonist of Kameo: Elements of Power. She is the 16 year old adopted daughter of Theena, the queen of the Enchanted Kingdom, and of King Solon. She is also the granddaughter of the Chieftain leader of the Twycross Tribe.
Being both the youngest princess and of no blood-relation to Solon, the longest running tradition of the royal family is broken when Kameo receives the Element of Power, along with the throne to the kingdom. Hurt and betrayed by her mother's unfair judgement, Kalus decides to take the throne and the Wotnot back by force, even if that means releasing siding with the kingdom's worst enemy, the Troll King.
Kameo falls unconscious from the ceremony and is placed in the care of the palace aids, as Kalus flees the castle. She is followed by Theena, Lenya, Halis and Yeros but by the time they find Kalus, she has already freed Thorn who ambushes all of them but Kalus is the one to unleash her rage and pain on her family.
When Kameo wakes and hears what happened, she ignores Ortho's warning and rushes to Thorn's castle, fighting her way to the Throne Room before being Ambushed by Thorn as Kalus is striking her family with dark magic. Thorn hits Kameo so hard, that all of the 3 elemental sprites, Pummel Weed, Chilla and Major Ruin, are knocked out of her body and she collides with and bounces off a pillar, landing beside Theena.
Theena wakes to see Kameo unconscious, before glaring at Kalus and as Thorn raised his hands to deliver a fatal blow, Theena uses the last of her magic to teleport Kameo to the Palace gardens. She is then brought to The Mystic who uses all of her skill to bring Kameo back from the brink of death.
She is scolded by The Mystic for losing all 3 Elemental Warriors, before telling her to recover the Wotnot book, sending Kameo on her quest to rescue both her family and the Elemental Sprites from Thorn and Kalus.
The Elemental Stand Incident
Two days before Kalus' ceremony, Kameo wonders into the room where Theena keeps the Element of Power on a stand after being drawn to it from a dream she had. Kameo has the urge to touch the gem and breathes on it before cleaning it on her sleeve.
Kalus enters and sees Kameo holding the Element of Power and yells at her, demanding to know what she is doing. Kameo tries to tell her that she was just checking on it but Kalus is too enraged and terrified to listen and shoves Kameo, causing her to step back. Kalus' foot gets caught in her own skirt and she trips a little.
Theena storms into the room and yells at both siblings but her rage is directed at Kalus, grabbing her arm really hard and demanding to know what she was doing. Kameo thinks that Theena is going to hit her but refrains and screams about her being irresponsible and how she feels she cannot trust Kalus.
Kalus tries to explain what happened however, Theena ignores her in her fit of rage.
Theena yells at both siblings to go to their rooms. She has to tell them twice as the two were in shock.
Kalus gives Kameo the fiercest glare she can muster, absolutely seething with jealousy.
When they both step into the hallway, Kalus starts crying and flies to her room as fast as she can before slamming her door.
Kameo is left feeling devastated and guilty about what she did.
After the incident with the Elemental Stand, Theena remains furious and decides(after some persuasion and a false vision from The Mystic) that Kalusis not fit to rule the Enchanted Kingdom and decides to pass the Element of Power onto Kameo instead.
She invites Kameo to her room to tell her this in private and forces her to accept the Element of Power. The moment she does this, Kalus enters and grabs Kameo's shoulder, spinning her around. Kalus is furious and says some heartbreaking words before flying off in absolute despair and rage of her mother's betrayal, causing Theena to chase after her.

- The voice of Kameo is Emma Tate.
- Kameo's voice actress in the Japanese version is Romi Park.
- In the official Manga, Kameo is only 12 years old.
- It is implied from the podcast and manga that Kameo and Theena are from the same tribal village in the Twycross
- On the official website, it states that Kameo was better at flying sports.
- Kameo found her 'style' from pictures of the wilderness tribes in the Royal Library.
- "I don’t know, really… I guess I was nosing around in the Royal Library and found some pictures of the wilderness tribes; you know, Elves that go into the deep forest to live with nature and the animals? I don’t know if I’d ever do that, but the clothes they wear and the designs they paint on their faces make them look so sleek and… natural. When I took the designs to the seamstress I kind of expected Mother to forbid me from wearing them – she only ever wears formal clothes, even when she’s alone – but she just sort of smiled and said they suited me. I guess even she was young once… let’s not think about that any more. It’s sort of creepy."
- Kameo originally wasn't adopted but this plot changed in the XBOX version of the game. You can tell this detail by the fact that Theena, Halis, Lenya (and maybe Yeros in his younger years) all have black hair.
- In the cutscene of Kameo riding an airship to reach Thorn's fleet, you can see her wearing her original white outfit.
- In the promos for the game or artwork, you can see Kameo still has her XBOX design, since the Element of Power is missing from her tiara.
