About Samuel

Samuel was perhaps three years old when his family was separated in a slave auction. He spent his mortal life abused by a negligent plantation owner and a horrid overseer. After suffering another  auction in which he was separated from his wife, he managed to escape, ultimately finding himself delivered from his fugitive life to the Locus. The life of freedom beyond his farthest imagining has made him solemnly dedicated to the Companions; his ingenuity and intelligence have proven exceptionally useful to them ever since.
