He likes to stay in the spotlight by exaggerating certain rumours and making dramatic movements. He also likes to eat, and for this reason, he would shape-shift into her older sister Dolores and make larger plates for himself.

Powers and Abilities of Camilo Madrigal
Camilo Madrigal can shapeshift into any living person he has ever seen. When he changes his shape into the shape of any other person, his clothes also change to match the clothes of other person. Camilo Madrigal has grown to use his ability and seems to be an expert in shape-shifting. He doesn’t have to change the shape of his whole body when he shape-shifts; instead, he can alter only certain parts of his body.
However, he is a young boy and cannot control his super powers under stress, pain and shock. In the scene when he was sacred with Bruno’s vision, he involuntarily shape-shifted into Bruno and Mirabel, and his face became lopsided with bulging eyes, and eyeballs started to face away from each other. When Camilo Madrigal is frightened or nervous, his face will turn into the face of an infant, and his arms become lean and short like that of a child.
His shape-shifting powers are only limited to turning into the shape of other humans. He cannot shape-shift into objects and animals. Shape-shifting into his family members would not give him their magical gifts. He can only acquire their physical appearance and cannot mimic their magical abilities. In the scene where Camilo Madrigal shape-shifted into his uncle Bruno, he was able to mimic Bruno’s glowing green eyes. Bruno’s green eyes begin to glow when he uses his superpower and looks into the future. In the scene, Camilo Madrigal is able to copy his uncle’s eyes, but he can’t look into the future like his uncle. In the same way, if Camilo Madrigal had turned into her cousin Luisa, he would not have had Luisa’s superhuman strength.
