Samson is a 26 year old American who lived in Washington State. He served in the Air Force for 8 years and was trained in basic weapons skills and advanced survival techniques during his time with the military. Samson arrived in Chernaraus shortly after the initial outbreak. He came to the country in pursuit of his wife, Mel, who entered the country as a news photographer to record the initial conflict in the region. After losing contact with Mel after the first wave of bombings Samson was compelled to follow in her footsteps and find out what had become of his wife. To this day he still roams the Chernaraus country side hoping to find some evidence of what happened to her.
