Who is Caim? Edit
Caim is a character from the Drakengard series. He is the only son of Gaap, the king of Caerleon who was able to conquer several neighbouring countries, but stopped shortly before Caim’s birth. Caim was taught swordsmanship by his father and through extensive training became quite skillful with the sword. On his eighteenth birthday Caim went to meet his parents and witnessed his mother being eaten by the Black Dragon. His father ordered him to escaped and too fell before the dragon. Caim learned that the dragon was sent by the Empire and thus swore revenge on them.
Losing his sense of kindness Caim became cold and relied on no one besides himself. He joined the Union with the intent of avenging his parents, but after years of fighting the Empire he began to enjoy the killing of others.
One day the Empire attacked the Castle of the Goddess in which Caim fought to protect the Goddess. The battle took Caim to the courtyard where he found the Red Dragon, whom was captured by the Empire. With memories of his parent’s death Caim intends to kill the dragon, but the dragon speaks claiming that even if she died her soul would remain pure. Caim instead offers the dragon to form a pact in order for both to survive the battle. After some thinking the dragon agrees. As they combined their souls both become healed and they escape the castle. The pact however has caused Caim to lose his voice.
"A pact! There's no other way." - Caim

While most people expected Caim to be weak, very few expected him to perform this badly. For the first time since Tanner in 2004 a character actually challenged the title for the weakest character ever. Even after his abysmal board vote where he was under 6% Caim took it another step and went even lower. At one point he was well below 5% and looked to end Tanner's reign, but he was able to recover slightly. Not that it changes the fact that Caim is still one of the weakest characters ever, but unlike Tanner or Chester no one is going to remember him in a few years.
To highlight Caim's weakness he was chosen as one of the three weakest entrants to decide which character was the weakest. Despite his poor performance in round 1 there were two other characters that were more pathetic than he was as he was easily able to break 50% in this poll.
