Born into a military family, Samuel AKA Nailer had to take everything in his stride from the word go. His Mother a nurse in the Navy. His father was a Capt in the Queen's Regiment. He was tough on Sam and tried to teach him how to be the best man throughout everything. School, sports, homelife. Always had to be number one. Sam rebelled against this and fought as much as he could. He didn't want to be the prom king, didn't, want to be captain of the basketball team or get straights A's throughout classes. This caused his father to drink more and more until eventually it killed him.
An accident, or so they say, his body found in the crashed Ford Ranger on the Pirbright bends. Apparently there was a group of squadies from the nearby barracks harassing Alice, the barmaid, when he stood up to them and told them to leave it or he would stop them. They left, but not far. Rumour has it the Captain took 3 of them down in the car park with broken bones, leaving the final one with a message... "Alice is off limits". He was only protecting her, this was his local, these new young soldiers shouldn't ruin it. The second set of tyre marks could well have been some of the young soldiers friends, or it was the drink. It will never been known. Although Sam disliked his father, he was still blood. Revenge was the only thing he could think of. Firearms are not legal in the UK, Sam didn't need one. One rainy night he went to the same bar, The Fortesque. Alice was there, the squadies were there, some in casts, some bruised. Sam was sat in the corner of the room, he knew where the exits were, his back to the wall. Slowly drinking his beer, the soldiers getting louder, more drunk, harassing Alice. One of them went to the bar, put something on the counter, a lighter, his Fathers. It clicked.
Only 2 people left that bar that night. One was Alice. The other, Sam. That was the last time he was seen in the UK. As a bushcraft master, expert sniper and trained in nearly all hand to hand combat, it wasn't hard for Sam to survive incognito. Some say he is in the Middle East but there have been sightings in Russia. It's not clear where he is currently.
The nickname of Nailer came from his military days, as the lead sniper with 67 confirmed kills, he is one of the top snipers in the world. Until the incident in the bar. Now a hired mercenary, apparently. He is one of the most dangerous men in the world.
