EDITOR'S OPINION

Camilla is an archetype that I'm not personally a huge fan of, but regardless, I think Paula Tiso is a pretty great casting choice here. She's always a pleasure to hear whenever she pops up in anything and brings a real sense of maturity to the role, on top of the other things it asks for. Misty is a decent replacement. She sounds more youthful but she gets the job done.

Paula Tiso is nice but not.... Camilla. She's supposed to be in her early 20's and I feel like she's gonna offer me "grandma's cookies" every time she speaks. I got used to her indeed but she sounds much older than she's supposed to.

@FreeFanboy Unknownsage pointed out to me on Twitter that Paula Tiso's Camilla has a similar sound to Karen Strassman's "motherly" voices. And honestly? l can hear that more than I can a "grandma" voice in her take, personally.

Paula's take is very distinctive, and so full of energy! Love it or hate it, it's hard to forget.

Misty Lee's take is not as unique, but she plays the part extremely well. I like how she plays up different aspects of the character, instead of merely mimicking Paula's take. There's a subtleness to her performance, with it starting off more warm and friendly until a more sinister side starts creeping out.

It's hard to decide. I'd honestly give them a tie if I could, but since I can't... I'll go with Paula. Her voice really fit the character, IMO.

@1dbad Yeah they do play the part well in different ways. But I think I slightly prefer Paula because of how subtle her "sweet" and "sinister" deliveries are done. Like, listen to how she says "You alright dear?" vs. "did it hurt?" you can just hear such a sinister side to her character come out in the latter. And it really shows how solid of an actress Paula Tiso is, IMHO.

Although Misty Lee does sound more like a "royal" in comparison. Which is nice for sure! But Paula Tiso's overall take just edges out for me.

@HylianBelmont I slightly prefer Paula myself! The difference is striking. I also think Paula's sinister side is creepier than Misty's?

I do like how Misty plays up the "royal" aspect more. I wish Paula's take had a bit more of that to it, but every other aspect of Paula's performance makes up for it, haha.

@1dbad Yep, really makes Camilla come across as a woman you DON'T want to get angry haha. Especially when she says "Hurry up and die!"

Although... considering how diverse the "Lord" characters in Fire Emblem usually are, I suppose there isn't really "one" way they have to sound, if that makes sense? I think Xander is obviously the kind of character that benefits from having a regal sound to his voice. But Camilla's voice in Fates works fine as it is IMO. Not that it couldn't ALSO work with it, but hopefully you get where I'm coming from.

@HylianBelmont Exactly! Misty's take isn't as intimidating.

Agreed! I actually like how Fire Emblem doesn't fall pray to stereotypes and try to make every "Lord" character have the same kind of voice or personality. I thought Camilla's voice in Fates worked fine too! I was more curious of how a more regal approach to Paula's performance would sound than thinking it ~needs~ to be that way or anything.

@1dbad I think Paula probably could've given Camilla's voice some nice regalness to it if she was asked. Without making it sound forced really. I think I'm actually a tad curious to hear however it would sound as well haha.

@HylianBelmont I know she could have pulled it off too. Would have been interesting to hear. Oh well!

@1dbad Yep, like I would've loved to hear Gideon Emery use his natural english accent on Dwyer (especially considering the direction they went with for his father's voice) but that's just not how it went down at the end of the day, unfortunately.

Y'all are crazy. Paula Tiso is AWFUL as Camilla. I don't know if this is the result of the direction, but her take on Camilla was one of the leading reasons why I undubbed my Fates. She sounded too old, and her attempts at being sexy, husky, and mysterious come off as too creepy. Like a middle aged woman trying to hit on her next boy-toy.

Misty Lee's Camilla is attempting to match Tiso's Camilla, but Lee's performance ironically does a far better job at conveying Camilla's played up traits. It's not as creepy or uncomfortable as it is with Tiso's Camilla, and Lee's Camilla has more command in her tone, befitting the character's royal title. If allowed an original take on the character, she would've far out-shown Tiso's performance

TL;DR. Tiso's Camilla sounds too old and forced, Lee's Camilla, while not the best, is a vast improvement.

@SkeletalMinion

I think it works because the idea behind Camilla's character (an objectified older sister who flirts with her siblings and is oddly possessive) is pretty creepy and uncomfortable to begin with and I like that the dub tries to hammer that home rather than playing it like it's something normal.

@NCZ I wouldn't have minded it either if she actually sounded like an older sister and less like Corrin's mom or creepy aunt

@SkeletalMinion I do disagree with you, but you are entitled to that opinion. Personally though, I don't think either Misty Lee or Miyuki Sawashiro sound THAT much younger in the role, if I'm being honest. They all have a pretty similar take on the character really.

I know some people really dislike Paula Tiso take, but personally I love it. She has such a unique quality in her voice for Camilla that's so... pleasant, sexy, and badass-sounding at the same time. She's pretty much Kris Zimmerman's go-to VA for "sexy" women characters, and for good reasons really!

Misty Lee actually does a really nice job capturing those qualities actually. And I had a pretty hard deciding between the two because of how well they play the part. However, I have to give this one to Paula Tiso. Because when Camilla had to sound threatening, she sounded rather natural. When Misty Lee delivers those lines... They don't sound quite as natural to me. Combine that with the fact that Misty Lee's pitch is a tad inconsistent in lines like "Say night-night!" (Which sounds a tad too high IMO) and I'd say that Paula Tiso definitely has the edge here really.

Neither of them are what I'd expect Camilla to sound like, but between the two Misty sounds closer
