It is unknown where Kamek was born, nor when he was born. It is still unknown who Kamek's parents are. All that is known about Kamek's past is that he once worked for Septailus Bowser, now known by the name Dry Bowser. However, Tyranus Bowser eventually killed Septailus and Septailus's army was defeated. After Septailus was thrown into a pit of lava, Kamek managed to heal the Koopa. Unfortunately, Septailus became a dry monster, known as Dry Bowser. Kamek was later abandoned by Dry Bowser, and so he moved to East Mushroom Kingdom. In 2012, Kamek began a Real Estate business. By 2014, Bowser and Junior found Kamek's business and asked him to find them a new home. After showing the Koopas a massive house to live in, Kamek was officially adopted into Bowser's army. For three years, Kamek helped Bowser and tended to Junior.
Kamek is easily the smartest out of the Bowser family, and he really likes to show it. He's often snarky, and often sees himself as a superior to Bowser and Junior. Despite this, Kamek still follows Bowser's orders. Kamek has always been a bit reserved and more introverted than Bowser or Junior.
