Camilla Ortin, who uses the stage name Camilla Cameo, was the daughter of a wealthy man, Oscar Ortin, who had made his money on fireworks. She trained in the arts, and in contrast to her father's noisy business, she traveled to Europe to train as a mime. She returned to the States and traveled with her own mime troupe, the Cameo Company. However, the troupe was not financially successful, and eventually she had to disband the troupe. She would later resurface as a criminal in Gotham City where she clashes with Batman and Robin.
