Hm..I was doing research about ancient civilisations for some reason, and I wandered into 11th century BC. And then: activate Makai Ouji mode.Or more specifically, Camio historical background mode.
(This is probably 100% inaccurate XD)
This is exacty one of Makai Ouji’s highlights, these links with religion and demonology! According to The Lesser Key of Solomon (from where the Solomon’s 72 Pillars are derived), Camio is Cain (Caim, another Gaelic rendering is used in the book) -
"The Fifty-third Spirit is Camio, or Caim. He is a Great President, and appeareth in the Form of the Bird called a Thrush at first, but afterwards he putteth on the Shape of a Man carrying in his Hand a Shard Sword. He seemeth to answer in Burning Ashes, or in Coals of Fire. He is a Good Disputer. His Office is to give unto Men the Understanding of all Birds, Lowing of Bullocks, Barking of Dogs, and other Creatures; and also of the Voice of the Waters. He giveth True Answers of Things to Come. He was of the Order of Angels, but now ruleth over 30 Legions of Spirits Infernal.”
This supports Camio being Cain and immortal. Both theories make sense. I agree that more backstory is definately needed.
Everyone wants more backstory.
On another interesting note, this version of of the grimoire - The Goetia - was actually ‘Translated by Samuel Liddell MscGregor Mathers’ and then ‘Edited, annotated and introduced by Aleister Crowley’. Almost everything in Makai Ouji can be referrenced to in History; I wouldn’t be surprised if the author brought in Crowley as some sort of character too. John Dee who lived three centuries prior to the storyline was made a character.
Gone slightly off note from Camio, but still, very interesting! :)
