Cameron Zlatko

Cameron Zlatko is the maternal uncle and legal guardian of Cleo Zlatko and the older brother of famed Huntress Alyson Zlatko. He is a Huntsman and the former leader and member of Team CYAN. His weapon of choice is family heirloom called Spectral Cross, which has been passed down in his family, along with Feather Dancer and Chrysós Drákos, for many generations.

Following his sister abandoning newborn Cleo at his apartment, Cameron adopted Cleo and became both her uncle and father. Though he wasn't alone. Both Yvonne Princeton and Nathan North gave him a little help.

Physical description

Cameron has shoulder-length silver-blonde hair with dark red eyes and a tan complexion. He wears a gradient black to the dark red waist-length jacket over a dark dress shirt, black pants, and combat boots. He is always seen with Spectral Cross on his waist.


Cameron is careful, yet protective over his family. Compared to Alyson, he is more relaxing than she is, able to enjoy breaks when they are given. Cameron does have a temper that no one really wants to mess with, especially when they mess with his family. He has a strong father-like daughter relationship with Cleo due to her father not being present and that he pretty much raised Cleo. 

He and his sister do not get along and further when they got put on the same team. They only managed to get along for the sake of Nathan North and Yvonne Princeton, their teammates and partners. Though when alone, they are always bickering.
