Cameron Foxx was born in 1988 in Phoenix, Arizona to a history teacher and a homemaker. Mom, Dad and younger brother Aaron still live just outside of Phoenix— Cam transferred from Arizona State to U of Penn after the incident at Tubac Presidio. Standing a trim 5’6", red-headed and brown-eyed, she’s often spotted in cargo pants, tank top and (when it’s cold) a zippered hoodie or worn leather coat.
As for what happened at the dig at Tubac Presidio State Park… Cam had successfully navigated her way through a bachelor’s in Anthropology at ASU and was starting a summer program as an intern— a great opportunity to assist at a dig of a seventeenth-century Spanish fort. Working under Doctor James Corbin, she’d helped uncover and document most of the rampart and gatehouse when Dr. Corbin found the trail leading to an old privy. Usually a hotspot for historical data, they dug down to find an open pit with something quite valuable in it: a book. It proved to be the diary of one of the men posted at the fort. It detailed daily life, but a disturbing trend appeared—continuous mention of a chupacabra. Work moved on, but one evening, as Cam started rappelling down to the bottom of the pit where Dr. Corbin was, there was an ear-splitting screech. Peering down into the darkness, flashlight in hand, Cam saw something in the dark, with too many teeth and not enough fur and eyes of the most horrible shade of red. She panicked and fled back to the site, and Dr. Corbin was never found.
Since then, Cam has taken up the Vigil in hopes of finding out just what became of Dr. Corbin. Surely, there must be an explanation…
