Seems like your mom is the one who had the reckoning.
— Cam says before getting punched by Mel

Cameron "Cam" Russo was a student at Hilltowne University who came into conflict with Mel Vera when he tried to stop her from protesting against Professor Thaine's reinstatement.

He was later killed and decapitated by the Harbinger of Hell due to his status as a virgin.


In Pilot, Cameron found Mel Vera putting up posters to protest Professor Thaine's reinstatement. Taking the professor's side, he informed Mel that she needed a permit and that the whole situation was "he said/she said". After going back and forth with Mel, he insinuated that Mel's mother got the reckoning from this "witch hunt", prompting Mel to punch him. He wanted to press charges against her but was talked out of it by detectives, Niko and Trip.

During a protest rally on campus, Cam sees Mel walk off towards the laboratory. He would later follow her sisters to the lab to stop them from entering but when he arrived, he instead found Professor Thaine in his demonic form. Confused by what he was seeing, Cam asked if the professor was in a costume but the professor replied that he wasn't. Taydeus then impaled Cam with a spear of ice, stating how awful the student was. The girls then summoned Harry who healed Cam and saved his life.

Cam regained consciousness just in time to see his professor vanquished. Not understanding what had happened, Harry offered to erase his memories but the girls said no. They wanted Cam to live with what he saw and to live with the fact that no one would believe him if he shared what had happened to him.

In Sweet Tooth, Cam was broadcasting on a radio show about witches and masculinity repression when the Harbinger of Hell found him. Sensing he was a virgin (which she needed to grow her power), she knocked on his window. He opened it and was immediately murdered. The school reported him missing the next day. His head and blood was kept in Angela Wu's (the Harbinger's vessel) dorm room.


Cameron comes off as a sexist and misogynistic as seen in the way he defends Professor Thaine despite being accused of sexual assault. This leads to tension between him and Mel.
