Kamish (카미쉬) was an immensely powerful magic beast that served as the dungeon boss of the First American S-Rank Gate. He was responsible for single-handedly devastating the American west coast area and massacring all but five of the S-Rank Hunters who were hired to take him down. As a result, Kamish is regarded as humanity's greatest calamity.
In life, Kamish was an enormous red western dragon with gray horns, glowing yellow eyes, a light brown underbelly, and a long red, whip-like tail. As a shadow, Kamish took on a different color scheme, with black scales, glowing purple horns, and a glowing purple underbelly.
Kamish had a fierce ego and was extremely bloodthirsty, as seen by how he almost immediately attempted to kill the humans standing behind Jin-Woo with his breath attack after being revived as a shadow. At the same time, however, he could be reasonable, as seen when he immediately halted his attack after he learned from Jin-Woo that his essence stone had been removed long ago. As a shadow, Kamish was also loyal and respectful to Jin-Woo, addressing him as his liege and even comically wagging his tail when Jin-Woo touched his nose.
Kamish was originally a servant of Antares, the King of Berserk Dragons and the strongest Monarch. At some point during the first war with the Rulers, he was captured by the enemy and had an essence stone implanted inside his body, "re-programming" him to kill humans. When the first S-Rank Gate ever spawned in America eons later, Kamish emerged from it and laid waste to the entire west coast area, slaughtering hundreds of S-Rank Hunters in his wake. His rampage only ended after the last five surviving S-Rank Hunters banded together and successfully killed him.
In the aftermath of Kamish's death, his corpse was claimed by the American government and preserved in the exact same position that the dragon had died in. The FBH's HQ was eventually built over Kamish's corpse, which was stored away in the building's underground basement and shielded with a wall of mana-reinforced glass. A rune stone was also discovered inside Kamish's corpse, but since there were no mage-types amongst the National Level Hunters, it was left to collect dust in the basement of the FBH's HQ. Meanwhile, Thomas Andre, one of the five surviving hunters, had Kamish's sharpest fang, which he had been allowed to keep as a souvenir after the dragon had bit him with it, crafted into a pair of daggers called Kamish's Wrath.
About eight years after Kamish's death, Jin-Woo was granted permission by the FBH to see the dragon's corpse in person. He successfully revived Kamish as a shadow, although for unknown reasons it took two tries for the skill to take. Upon being reborn, Kamish noticed the humans standing behind Jin-Woo and attempted to use his breath attack on them, forcing Jin-Woo to order him to stop and inform him that he was no longer under the Rulers' control. Realizing that he was right, Kamish complied, bowed his head to Jin-Woo, and revealed that he had served Antares back when he was alive.
Unfortunately, due to having been dead for so long, Kamish's body began to crumble away. Realizing that his time was short, he then quickly informed Jin-Woo that there were four humans to his knowledge who had been bestowed power by the Rulers and warned him to be wary of them. He then expressed sadness for not being able to serve Jin-Woo as one of his shadows, before his body completely faded away altogether.
As a servant of Antares and humanity's greatest calamity, Kamish was obviously one of the strongest (if not THE strongest) Magic Beasts that humanity ever faced and was at least on par with the Ant King in strength.
