"There's a loop, people, and I'm in it. Not only am I in it, I'm the big curvy part."
The Girl in Suite 2103

Camille "Cam" Saroyan is the head of the Jeffersonian Institute's Forensic Division, a new division formed during the summer of 2006.

Overview[]

Previously, she worked as the youngest coroner in New York City, performing autopsies in difficult and sometimes unsanitary conditions, and admits to Booth she took the job at the Jeffersonian because of the facilities. She was also a cop in New York for eleven years before becoming a coroner. She is clearly a very focused and intelligent woman, to go from being a police officer to a medical doctor specializing in forensic pathology.

She is a 'hard line' woman who takes charge of her division and defends them if necessary, as long as she believes they are in the right.

In the beginning of the second season, Saroyan butts heads with Dr. Brennan and the other team members, but eventually accepts their quirks and develops relationships with them. At one point early in Season 2, she considers removing Dr. Brennan from her position at the Jeffersonian, until both Angela and Booth make it abundantly clear if Brennan goes, the entire team will leave with her.

In the episode entitled "The Man in the Cell", Camille is almost killed by a neurotoxin called Methyl Bromide to which she is exposed by serial killer Howard Epps when she was trying to cut into the forehead of the former Mrs Epps. Epps' attack on Dr. Saroyan has an extreme emotional effect on both Brennan and Booth. Luckily, Hodgins manages to find out what the toxin is and alerts the hospital in time to save Cam. Originally, Saroyan was supposed to die in the episode, ending her character run, but the cast and producers received good reviews on the character of Camille Saroyan, thus decided to keep her.

Like all the other "squints", she is interested in Booth and Brennan's relationship. She often overhears Booth and Brennan's telephone exchanges or overly intimate conversations, and smiles or shakes her head at their apparent obliquity and insistence their relationship is strictly platonic and professional.

Personal Life[]

Booth: Your family is coming.
Saroyan: Oh God. And I thought poison was my biggest problem.

Cam has a seemingly poor relationship with her younger sister, Felicia, as both of them are very competitive, each of them trying to prove that their life is more fulfilling than the other. However their close relationship can be seen when both sisters decided to ignore Booth after he told Cam about Felicia kissing him in the episode,"Intern in the Incinerator", where her Dad had his sixtieth birthday.

In the season 2 episode, "The Headless Witch in the Woods", Cam states her mother, who died when she was 23, came to her the day after she died and led her to find a necklace in a drawer. Cam still wears the necklace.

In the season 3 episode of "The Pain in the Heart", it is revealed Cam was a police officer for 10 years prior to obtaining her position in the Jeffersonian.

In season 4, Saroyan became concerned when Jared Booth, Seeley Booth's younger brother, went out on a date with Brennan and was relieved to hear the two did not have sex. While Cam was not comfortable expressing why she felt this way, Angela was: "It would have been a creepy way to have sex with Booth, without having sex with the real Booth". Saroyan has also known the Booth brothers for a long number of years.

Later in season 4 in the episode "The Doctor in the Den"; Cam's ex-fiancée dies, and Cam meets his daughter, Michelle, again after ten years. At the end of the episode Cam offers to have Michelle move in with her and Michelle (the daughter) accepts. The episode ends with the two of them hugging.

It has also been hinted many times she is an occasional smoker and she quits in The Double Death of the Dearly Departed when Michelle starts smoking. Booth hinted that Michelle will stop if she does.

In season 5, she tries to find a gynecologist for Michelle and found a perfect one, until she starts dating the doctor. This however made her realize that Michelle cared for her enough to want her to have a man in her life.

History[]

Cam does not appear in season one. She makes her first appearance in season two, as a new main character, when she replaces Daniel Goodman.

Season 2[]

In the beginning of the second season, she butts heads with Dr. Brennan and the team members, but eventually accepts their quirks and develops relationships with them. At one point early on in Season 2, she considers removing Dr. Brennan from her position at the Jeffersonian, until both Angela and Booth make it abundantly clear that if Brennan goes, they all go. Cam and Booth had an intimate/romantic relationship in the past, a relationship that is rekindled after Booth discovers that Cam was gossiping about his relationship with his ex, Rebecca (see Booth and Cam) (The Truth in the Lye). She gets into a disagreement with Brennan when she suggests an alternative way to get Judge Ramos to waive her diplomatic immunity. Booth defends her by saying that she was a cop and that was how she did things (The Girl in Suite 2103). In Aliens in a Spaceship, Cam suggests that her and Booth go to New York, Booth doesn't want to go, but their conversation gets interrupted by a phone call telling him that Brennan and Hodgins have been kidnapped. While trying to find the location of Brennan and Hodgins, Cam interrupts and says that the reason why she was brought onto the team was because they wouldn't make intuitive leaps. Her relationship with Booth ends in "The Man in the Cell", when Booth asserts that workplace relationships put everyone in danger when high-pressure situations arose, after Camille is almost killed by a neurotoxin (bromomethane) she is exposed to by serial killer Howard Epps. She originally was supposed to die in the episode and ending the character of Cam, but the cast and producers thought she was a good addition to the storyline and decided to keep her.

It is revealed that Cam lived with him and his daughter, Michelle, for two years before she left him. She goes to tell Michelle that her father died, but Michelle says that she doesn't remember who she is. Cam helps with the investigation by going in the field more with Booth and Brennan. She defends Andrew when the Brennan accuses him of performing surgery while in pain or under opioids. Cam goes back to Michelle to see if she remembers and Michelle tells her that she does remember her and how she left her even though she said that she loved her. Cam tells Michelle that she left because her father was still seeing other women even after she was engaged. Later, Cam is sitting with Brennan and explains why she had to leave. She tells her about the salt and pepper shaker set she got from her grandmother and how she gave her one of the shakers and kept the other one as a reminder to Michelle of how much she loved her. Brennan suggests to her that she should take in Michelle and Cam considers the idea. After the catch the killer, Cam goes back to Michelle's house and tells her. She tells Michelle that she needs a place to stay and Michelle says that she's going to stay with some cousins. Cam asks her to live with her and shows her the shaker, but Michelle runs up to her room. Cam, thinking that her answer is no, gets up to leave and makes it to the door when Michelle asks her where she's going. In her hands is the other shaker, which she interlocks with Cam's and hugs her. Cam has trouble adjusting to parenting, especially when it is revealed that Michelle has started smoking.

In the opening episode, Cam has trouble finding a replacement for Brennan and Hodgins and confirming the identity of a young boy on her slab, believed to be Logan Bartlett. She goes on an interview which she thinks will be about brain damage in veterans, but they end up only asking her about the little boy. Caroline tells her that her bosses are using the interview as an excuse to fire her. In the end, Caroline ends up bringing the team back and saving Cam's job (The Mastodon in the Room). In the middle of this Season, a slaver ship called the Amalia Rose is recovered and with that Cam's link to her family, who were treated like cattle, bothers her much more than she lets on (The Shallow in the Deep). It is revealed that she's been having relationship troubles with Paul, since they can never find time to spend time with each other. Cam ignores his calls and avoids him until he visits her at the lab. He tells her that he's canceled all of his appointments under the excuse of having to go to his sister's wedding.

They solve the murder and Cam goes out to dinner with Paul (The Bikini in the Soup). After the death of Vincent Nigel-Murray, Cam tells Angela that she was the one who called his mother to inform her of her son's death and listened to her cry.

Season 7[]

Cam hires a new intern, Finn Abernathy, but he is met with skepticism due to his troubled past in juvie, which makes Cam question her decision to hire him. When Michelle meets Finn, Cam is concerned by their flirting and disapproves of their relationship, but Michelle and Finn convince her to let them be together (The Bump in the Road). In The Suit on the Set, it is revealed that when young, she starred in a cheap Blaxploitation vampire film called Invasion of the Mother Suckers in order to earn money for medical school.

Her feelings are hurt when Michelle decides to visit Finn and not tell her that she is in town. She "catches" the two of them together on a date, but later admits to Michelle that it was set up by her and Finn. In their agreement not to keep any more secrets from each other, Cam tells Michelle about her relationship with Arastoo (The Friend in Need). Later in the season, they end up telling the rest of the lab of their relationship (The Survivor in the Soap).

In the beginning of the season, her and Arastoo are driving to work when they get pulled over by a seemingly racist cop. She ends up getting arrested for grand theft and it's revealed that she has become a victim of identity theft. She initially doesn't want the others to help her, claiming that she can handle it on her own. Cam ends up accepting help by hiring Hodgins' lawyer and allowing Angela to investigate her case for her (The Cheat in the Retreat). Angela uses a trick she used in solving a murder to discover who stole Cam's identity. The woman ends up being Haley Kent, Cam's college roommate (The Fury in the Jury). In The Spark in the Park, she wants to go through with aggravated identity theft charges, which would add 3 years to Haley's sentence, but Arastoo convinces her not to. Cam decides not to let Dr. Brennan examine the remains of the Ghost Killer, not believing that there is actually a connection between the bodies. She gives the remains to Dr. Edison to examine in the meantime, despite Dr. Brennan's complaints (The Ghost in the Killer). In The Cold in the Case, Arastoo tells Cam that his parents are in town and they want to meet her. She is apprehensive at first, worried that they won't approve of "his non-Iranian, non-Muslim, black girlfriend", but later agrees to go out to dinner with them. At dinner, Arastoo and his parents get into an argument because he believes that they don't approve, so he takes Cam and storms out. Later, they arrive at Cam's apartment to explain and tell them that they approve of their relationship. They make note of how comfortable they are with each other, and Cam panics a bit when the topic of marriage comes up.

Season 10[]

At the beginning of the season, she is heartbroken by the death of Lance Sweets, and not only conducts his autopsy but also places herself in charge of organizing his funeral as well (The Lance to the Heart). The topic of marriage comes up again in Cam and Arastoo's relationship and she is reluctant to even discuss it, but takes a step towards being more open to it (The Lost Love in the Foreign Land). In addition, she is present at the birth of his son, Seeley Lance Wick-Sweets (The Puzzler in the Pit). In the 200th episode of the show, Cam plays the antagonist of the episode (The 200th in the 10th). Arastoo reveals to Cam that his brother is sick with terminal brain cancer and has decided to go to Iran to be with him. She protests, knowing that going back might get him arrested but she lets him go on the faith that he will come back (The Baker in the Bits). In The Big Beef at the Royal Diner, it is discovers that Cam is less okay than she seems about Arastoo being in Iran. She leans on Clark, who tries his best to assure her that Arastoo is fine. She flies to Iran after hearing of Arastoo's kidnapping and immediately volunteers to help solve the murder of a politician's son in exchange for Arastoo's freedom. While there, she meets his terminally ill brother, Hamid, who gives the couple his blessing (The Murder in the Middle East).

Season 11[]

At the beginning of the season, Cam struggles with hiring a replacement for Dr. Brennan because she doesn't approve of any of the candidates. Cam asks Hodgins and Angela if they think it would be a good idea for her to hire Arastoo, since they are dating. Hodgins and Angela think it's a good idea, but their conversation is cut short when Cam gets a text about a body in a van. When the body appears to be Booth, Brennan demands to work on the case and keeps finding things that Arastoo missed. Cam discovers the ring box in Arastoo's backpack and asks to see it (The Loyalty in the Lie). The body ends up being Jared, Booth's brother, and Hodgin checks up on Cam to make sure she's okay, knowing that she was close to the Booth brothers. Dr. Brennan decides to come back to the Jeffersonian, which means that Arastoo would have to find a job someplace else. Cam tells him that if he proposed she would say yes and that she would follow him in his job hunt, but he didn't want her to resent him for making her leave the job she loves (The Brother in the Basement).

In the next episode, Cam tells Dr. Brennan that she and Arastoo are taking a break in their relationship so that he could find a job. She gets frustrated when couples start inviting her to things now that she's alone (The Donor in the Drink). Much to Cam's dismay, Dr. Brennan hires a new intern, Dr. Beth Mayer, without telling her. While working with her and Dr. Brennan, she realizes that Dr. Brennan is jealous of Dr. Mayers skill and experience, despite Dr. Brennan's claims otherwise.

In The Promise in the Palace, sees Angela and her photography mentor, Sebastian Kohl, working together and muses later with her that he "may be interested in more than her photography". Cam runs into him on a coffee run later and confronts him about it, but is surprised when he says that he's actually interested in her, not Angela. She turns him down, saying that she just got out of a serious relationship. When she talks to Angela about it later, she confides that she's scared that she won't find what she had with Arastoo again. Angela tells her that she may never find what she had with Arastoo again, but she won't know unless she tries. She continues her relationship with Sebastian, and things seem to be getting more serious.

Cam is at the site of Thomas Gallo's body, but steps away to make a phone call when the body explodes. She is surprised when Arastoo arrives at the lab to make sure she's okay. She avoids talking about it when Hodgins asks. Arastoo discovers her relationship with Sebastian when she gets a call from him and Hodgins lets slip about who he is. At the end of the episode, Arastoo tells her that he was offered a job in Berlin but he isn't going to take it because it's in Berlin and she isn't. She tells him that she's seeing someone but he asks her if it's serious and says that he would make cheese sandwiches if he could be with her. Before Cam could say anything, they hear Angela call for help and they run over to Hodgins, who is laying on the floor. They are in the hospital waiting room when Dr. Brennan tells Angela that he's paralyzed from the waist down (The Doom in the Boom).

After learning that Hodgins is paralyzed, she is reluctant to let him come back to work so quickly. She realizes that he's overworking himself and is endangering himself, so she sends him home and doesn't allow him to work on the case. Cam later discovers how upset he is about not being able to work, so she visits him at home. She tells him that she feels guilty about letting him come back to work after the explosion and that if she hadn't, then he might not have been in a wheelchair (The Death in the Defense). Cam and the others from the lab attempt to cheer him up, but are unable to. She is also alarmed by Hodgins' disrespect and offers to send him home. In The Monster in the Closet, Cam tells Angela that she likes having Arastoo around. Later, she asks him for a ride home and they walk out of her office holding hands.

Cam gives Jessica Warren some advice on her relationship with James Aubrey (see Aubrey and Jessica) (The Last Shot at a Second Chance). In The Secret in the Siege, Cam is asked by the White House to perform the autopsy on Secret Service Agent Brandt Walker. When a camera crew comes to the lab to film a documentary, Cam and Arastoo struggle to keep their relationship a secret from the cameras. Cam walks in on Arastoo telling the cameras what he wants to be when he grows up: a husband and a father. Cam is surprised, but she quiets Arastoo, who's trying to convince the cameras that he's not talking about them, and asks him to marry him. He says yes. Cam is asked what she wants to be when she grows up, but she says that it's a personal question and that she doesn't feel comfortable talking about it.

Cam walks in on Brennan and Angela organizing the books in Brennan's office. Brennan says that she doesn't understand how an inanimate object could carry such significance in someone's life and Cam tells them they can and holds up her left hand to show them her engagement ring (The Head in the Abutment). In the next episode, Cam invites her sister, Felicia, to help plan her wedding in order to make amends. When she arrives, Cam is reluctant to go, but the others convince her to. Going with what she thought Cam wanted, Felicia plans a simple, no-fuss wedding. While trying on dresses, Cam realizes that she would rather wear a fancy dress than a simple one and begins to rethink the whole simple wedding idea. After catching the murderer, Felicia walks into Angela's office to tell Cam that she's planned her whole wedding and that all Cam needs to do is to set a date. Cam confesses that she wants a big wedding and that she didn't want to tell Felicia because she didn't want to fight with her. Felicia tells her that it doesn't matter as long as it's what she wants and they hug (The Stiff in the Cliff).

Cam is one of the first people to figure out that Zack kidnapped Dr. Brennan (The Nightmare in the Nightmare).

Season 12[]

In The Flaw in the Saw, Hodgins brings her evidence to exonerate Zack Addy for the murder of Ray Porter. However, Cam finds it too perfect and refuses to consider it in case Hodgins faked it. After Hodgins leaves, she does look the evidence over, but ultimately throws it out as does Brennan.

In The Steel in the Wheels, Hodgins finds the body of the Gormogon's apprentice, Ray Porter's true killer and he keeps Cam on hand when he brings the coffin in to prevent any accusations of evidence tampering. Cam watches as Hodgins opens the coffin and is surprised by the preserved state of the Apprentice's clothes. While looking at the body in the coffin, Cam notices dried blood on the Apprentice's sleeve which the team realizes likely belongs to Ray Porter and is thus the evidence they need to exonerate Zack.

In The Day in the Life, Cam marries Arastoo Vaziri and later tells Brennan thst she's considering handing over her administrative role as Head of the Jeffersonian to someone else. In The End in the End, Cam and Arastoo both escape the explosion at the Jeffersonian unharmed and Cam can be seen helping to treat the injured. After Booth, Brennan, Angela and Hodgins are rescued, Cam works with Hodgins to examine the bomb that Booth was able to disarm. The two discover the DNA of the bomb builder: Jeannine Kovac, the supposed wife of Mark Kovac. However, as the DNA points to a sibling relationship, the team realizes that Jeannine is Mark's sister, not his wife. After the intern team finds a clue in the remains of Fred Walden, Cam is able to use it to locate Kovac. After everyone cleans out their things until the Jeffersonian can be repaired, Cam reveals she is taking a leave of absence and leaving Hodgins in charge so that she and Arastoo can go to Mississippi and adopt three foster children.

Relationships[]

Arastoo Vaziri[]

See also: Cam and Arastoo

In the season 8 episode The Bod in the Pod, it is revealed that Cam is in a relationship with Arastoo Vaziri, one of Brennan's 'squinterns'. Hodgins is the first to find out, when he overhears Arastoo reading a poem that he wrote in Farsi to Cam. They urge him not to tell anyone else, and it is only when he and Angela sees Cam and Arastoo kiss that she finds out. Cam tells Arastoo that she "wants to tell everyone, but [she] doesn't want anyone to know". Arastoo asks her if she wants him to quit, but Cam quickly declines, telling him that she could not live with that guilt.

In The Day in the Life, she marries Arastoo and adopts three boys in Mississippi.

Seeley Booth[]

See also: Cam and Booth

Dr. Saroyan and Booth have had an intimate/romantic relationship in the past, a relationship that is rekindled at an undisclosed point midway through the series. In the episode "The Boy in the Shroud", several comments, conversations, and scenarios between different characters suggest Cam and Booth may have been romantically involved at a young age, most likely in high school or early college, although this has yet to be explicitly confirmed. Later episodes reveal Cam has known Booth and his younger brother for fifteen years, which seems to support this conclusion, or at least indicate they knew each other as adolescents. It is further revealed in the episode "Aliens in a Spaceship" that Booth and Saroyan had struck up their relationship again after she came to the Jeffersonian, although Booth appeared to have some reservations and was uncomfortable telling anyone at work, especially Dr. Brennan, about his connection with Camille. The relationship between Booth and Saroyan ended in "The Man in the Cell", when Booth asserted workplace relationships put everyone in danger when high-pressure situations arise.

Andrew Welton[]

Cam was once engaged to and lived with a cardiology surgeon named Dr. Andrew Welton. While they were dating, and later engaged, Cam helped to raise his daughter, Michelle. However, after his wife's death (Michelle's mother, who died in childbirth), he was never able to fully commit to their relationship, and was constantly cheating. Though Cam did love him, she ended the engagement, leaving Welton and the young Michelle behind. 10 years later in the season 4 episode The Doctor in the Den his remains are found in a tiger exhibit at a zoo. Upon learning the identity of the remains, Cam takes it upon herself to inform Michelle of her father's death. Michelle claims to barely remember Cam and she treats her coldly. Later in the episode, Michelle admits she had been very deeply hurt by Cam's apparent abandonment, and she had waited at the window for weeks, "waiting for you to come home." Finally, at the end of the episode. Michelle and Cam are reconciled and Michelle accepts Cam's offer to move in with her.

Grayson Barasa[]

Camille also had a brief fling with Angela's ex-husband Grayson "Birimbau" Barasa. After flirting a bit at the Jeffersonian, she offered to drive him to the airport, where his flight was canceled and he checked into a local hotel with her. When later discussing time travel in The Fact in the Fiction, and the possibility of repeating one day, she and Angela both agreed that their time in Grayson's arms would be the ideal choice.

Paul Lidner[]

Cam dated Paul, a gynecologist for awhile since season 5 and they broke up before The Bod in the Pod. She could have broken up with him before The Family in the Feud based on her obsessively competitive behavior and grossly incompetent attitude to Dr. Brennan and Daisy Wick during the episode. Cam explains to Angela that she can't date Michelle's gynecologist because she couldn't help thinking about some form of intersection between both her sexual and familial relationships. Paul was apparently unwilling to accept the break-up, calling Angela even though Cam started dating Arastoo at the time.

Trivia[]

  • Cam was originally supposed to die after six episodes, but the cast and crew loved her so much that they decided to keep her.
  • Cam has arachnophobia--the fear of spiders (The Dentist in the Ditch) and ophidiophobia--the fear of snakes (The Hot Dog in the Competition).
  • Cam was once hypnotized by a Las Vegas showman into clucking like a chicken after hearing the word "coffee," and although she claims to have gotten past it through the years, she still clucked unintentionally at Angela's test of the word. Unknowingly, she clucked after Angela left suggesting that she may still be hypnotized. (Death in the Saddle)
  • When living in New York, she acted in a cheesy, low budget film called 'Invasion of the Mother Suckers' (The Suit on the Set)
  • Both Brennan and Booth have a hard line when it comes to the law, which has often resulted in clashes with her associates and earning their animosity numerous times. Cam will follow the law, even at times when she clearly wishes not to do so, such as when she fired Wendell Bray for his use of cannabis to combat his cancer, out of fear that the defense would toss the evidence he found on a technicality, resulting in a killer's release (something that even Booth and Brennan thought was wrong), or reporting results that supposedly showed that Brennan was a murderer, even though she clearly knew that it was a frame-up by Pelant. However, this can make her useful as well, as Caroline once pointed out that Cam was the only one that Pelant was unable to manipulate, as he thought she would cover up the evidence, which he could use to ensure her and the Jeffersonian's removal from his case. Caroline pointed out that Cam's refusal to break the law was something Pelant did not anticipate, ultimately leading to Brennan's freedom. When presented suspect evidence that Zack Addy was innocent, Cam refused to consider it due to the suspect nature but found that she couldn't just throw it out at first and looked it over.
  • Cam is left-handed.
  • Cam knows some Spanish due to her time spent as a cop and coroner in New York.
  • Cam used to have a habit of smoking.
  • By the time she was 29, she was the Deputy Chief Coroner of New York.
  • She was present at the Twin Towers on 9/11 and signed over 900 death certificates.
  • She was the one who broke the news of Vincent Nigel-Murray's death to his mother.
  • Cam was fond of Sweets, to the point where she considered him family. When he was killed, she placed herself in charge of planning his funeral.
  • Though Cam was originally antagonistic towards Brennan, she ends up becoming one of her close friends, even going so far as to bring dinners after the birth of Christine and joining Brennan for her bachelorette bash.
  • She dislikes rats, perhaps due to her time spent living in New York.
