True to his history as a Zilart prince, Kam’lanaut is a greedy and loafty man, straying from the conflict between Materia and Spiritus simply because he was not summoned willingly and won’t be rewarded, and toying with Spiritus’s energy. Despite initially approaching Onion Knight, Vaan, and Y'shtola with respect, he was quick to try to kill them to witness the “fabled purification” of Shinryu from the previous cycles. When confronted by Golbez for tampering with Spiritus’s energy, he treated the warlock with great contempt, despite Golbez’s attempts to tell him his tampering will cause the realm to collapse and his actions are not going unnoticed.
Kam'lanaut is transported to World B as one of the warriors for the new god of discord, Spiritus. New to this world, he felt like he was dragged into the conflict rather than called, and he decides to stray away of the conflict and search for a way to leave the world and return to his home world, not answering Spiritus’s calls for his champions to meet him. At some point, however, he learns about Shinryu's purification process that afflicted the veteran warriors from the previous cycles.
Kam'lanaut encounters the Onion Knight, Vaan, and Y'shtola on the Floating Continent. After learning from them that the only way to go home is to generate energy born from battles, Kam'lanaut fights them. During their conflict, the planesgorgers descend upon them. Seizing the moment, Kam'lanaut attempts to finish off the Onion Knight and Vaan, but is waylayed by Y'shtola. The four of them attempt to reach the portal before the planesgorgers, but Kam'lanaut's path is obstructed. While his fate seemed ambiguous at first, it is revealed that he managed to escape.
Shortly after Shinryu's defeat, the moogles give Kam'lanaut a crystal to host his memories for Spiritus to use in the upcoming infinitely long war. With a crystal doppelgänger of himself to serve on Spiritus's behalf, Kam'lanaut returns to his home world.
Kam'lanaut is caught tampering with Spiritus's energy core by Golbez. Kam'lanaut expresses his disconcern for the struggle of the gods and contemplates why he isn't compensated for his efforts, prompting Golbez to suggest taking the matter up with Spiritus. It is revealed that the in-game reward system was introduced by Spiritus under Kam'lanaut's suggestion.
