Sami was raised in the town Vaasa in western Finland. He had a normal childhood growing up with both parents and his two younger sisters. He was not a very good student and spent most of his time bailing school and fucked around at the town with his friends. When he was eighteen he was as so many sent to the army due to conscrition laws. He served as a radio operator and that is when he learned english better. As a soldier he was average and did not really stand out in anything and most off the time he only wanted to get out. After leaving the army he studied to become a vetrianarian.
When he finished school he and his friends from his class went on a roadtrip around europe. They came to South Zegoria before the outbreak and got locked in before they could escape out the border. They where at the western checkpoint when it got sun over. And as far as Sami knows he was the only one that made it out alive.
