"It's all dumb luck - the unlucky die and leave the lucky ones behind to clean up."
—Jamill Caines, Valkyria Chronicles 2

Jamill Caines (ジャミル・カイネス Jamiru Kainesu?) is an Armored Tech in Valkyria Chronicles 2. He is a gambler who always bring dice and believe only in luck.


Valkyria Chronicles 2

Class G armoured tech, Jamill is a gambler who trusts only the roll of the dice he carries, as shown in Live by the Dice, when Avan lost to Zeri in combat exercise while he talked to Jamill who insisted to stay in his base.

It is revealed in Luck is All that he believes on luck because he was a living proof of it. Once a teacher, he enlisted in order to protect his hometown. He had to witness the annihilation of his entire squad but himself by enemy reinforcements following what they thought was a victory. He then returned to his hometown only to find it in ruin. Since then, he grew cynical, believing only in luck. He came to Lanseal claiming that it is a fitting place to die.

He has stated, in a conversation with Erik Kampmann, that he used to teach. He has considerable knowledge concerning airships.

Later, Class G was sent to Arlem Region to hold GRA army there. While in battle, the enemy reinforcement kept coming. Jamill said that Avan had brought him only to add the number of the casualty, but Avan didn't believe they should give up to fate - he took the dice and carved its surface, making all the pips nothing but one. Just when Jamill laughed on what he sees as insanity, the GRA troops took fire. Another class from Lanseal came to back Class G. Avan later said that luck may be part of what makes him alive, but it is just a part of it and sometimes he must meet it halfway and it is less fun to live just according to the dice. Jamill later chose to stay at Lanseal to see how long Avan's luck stays on him.

After graduation, Jamill befriended a young war orphan while roaming Gallia, and now looks after her reluctantly.
