Background

I had a name once, I think. I remember clean white coats before red spilled like burgundy paint across a map I can still hear it dripping dripping drip and lights that always gave me headaches. Clean counters, lab equipment...a microscope someone always made me use because the ocular lens was cracked and uncomfortable. A joke, I think now we're all laughing into the dark. I can't remember who did that but I smell flowers now...a daisy, I think. Daisy. Why does that sound so familiar? I've never liked flowers...too fragile, too easily broken like a bone snapping and the marrow being dragged out by a greedy tongue. A family before the flesh was stripped from them by vultures wearing the skin of men oh how they danced, danced was a part of it too, I think...everything becomes so muddled. All the lines blur together and my head pulsates when I think of it. All I can taste is meat and I can still hear her crying oh god her eyes her eyes as they removed fingers they begged me to do it and the nausea boils up inside me until I'm dizzy.

Clarity is rare these days. They took me and my family after the disaster at the lab; they couldn't understand we were trying to help. They got him too...his name, why can't I remember his name? He was always there, all frenetic energy and a smile like a split horizon. I could hear him screaming, an abyss of pain, as they used him over and over. They called him Daisy...said it was because he was sweet and soft. I remember his eyes...how the lighthouse behind them died. They made me watch. Bear witness. Then my family...one by one, used and dismembered with a loving slowness in front of me over the course of weeks. The sound of teeth on bones. They made me watch...and when the hunger was enough, they fed me. I can still taste them.

It's fading now the blood on my hands as I rammed a broken length of bone through his orbital socket and soon I fear I won't remember won't remember anything but the blood and the shit and the terror and oh, the sweet release of blood through a severed throat who I am...what I am. What they made me become. I want to help but we are products of a broken world everything is so hazy now. I need to find Daisy...he can fix me. Daisy can help.

I heard the story of Samael when I was a boy. I don't know who I am, but I'm never alone.

You can call me Sam.

Sam's actual name is Samuel Garrick - though obviously he can't recall that. His association with Samael (and therefore Sam) is either coincidence or an unconscious association. He grew up in the United States in the rural midwest (Michigan, specifically), son to a sawmill laborer (his father, James) and a nurse (his mother, Elena). He attended a small town school where he excelled in science and academics in general but had a reputation for being somewhat odd as well as a social recluse. Sam didn't make friends easily but when he did he was fiercely loyal to them. His father was very much the typical midwestern male and consistently pushed Samuel into hunting, fishing, and tracking expeditions. Samuel never excelled at these things but is a passable shot and as a result has some outdoor skills. His mother likewise taught him about medical science which he enjoyed much more and excelled at as it was science related. After graduating high school Samuel moved to attend college and that is where he met Jake Gabriel in his freshman year of a organic chemistry. They became immediate friends and shared a deep love of science as well as inquisitive minds. After graduating college with honors both Samuel and Jake were admitted to grad school in London. They continued their studies together as friends and eventually both got an opportunity to assist a Russian research team with chemical engineering projects in Southern Russia. It was here he met his wife, Luidmila. They fell quickly in love and he fathered a daughter, Helena. This brings us to the outbreak and the decision to travel to nearby Chernarus and set up a lab in order to try and assist - Sam brought his family with in case they quickly needed to leave so he wouldn't have to travel back to Russia to get them. It was his worst mistake, as time would show. Before the trauma Sam was very much an inquisitive and highly trained researcher with modest skills in first aid/medical science and very basic outdoor skills. He was polite, often times awkward, and preferred his lab to most people.

Sam doesn't remember much about his previous life, or even if Sam is his real name. A scientist by trade, he was in Chernarus with his long time friend Jake Gabriel working at a research laboratory before making the decision to flee to a more secure location. Unfortunately for everyone, bandits broke into the lab shortly after Sam had stopped by with his family, in an attempt to convince his friend to leave to escape the widening circle of violence around the outbreak. Taken captive he was subjected to weeks of torture and forced to witness both his family and Jake being violated. The bandits took to calling Jake by the name of "Daisy" because he was "sweet and smelled nice." This culminated in his family being dismembered in front of him, partially eaten, and then fed to Sam (who had been starved and tortured for weeks at that point). The pain inflicted caused a break in Sam's psyche and he cycles between several personalities that have developed. Sam managed to escape his captors after Daisy [formerly Jake] was taken somewhere else, dragged screaming into the night. In the process he killed several guards and escaped, mentally shattered, into the wilds of Chernarus. Sam, unable to remember his real name, takes the name of Sam after Sameal - a fallen angel who is often viewed as both good and bad.
