Sam is a simple fellow from the marshlands of the southeastern United States. He's managed to survive the outbreak and global collapse by living in isolated areas such as swamps and rivers, avoiding the movements of large masses as they tear themselves apart in the wake of a global catastrophe. Recently, Sam has elected to travel the world despite its sullen circumstances, eager to see it and live honorably before his time comes to join the dead. He lives in motion, either traveling alone or in small groups. Sam has grown accustomed to life in the wilderness and may be encountered in his search for purpose living off of the land.
