A T T I R E
Example

G E A R
Due to the life that Sam has been forced to live, like may survivors within the world, especially those who don't have a stable establishment to call home, are forced to carry everything on their person and in a backpack wherever they go. Which, leaves little allowed outside of the essentials. Such as a basic gas-mask which helps filter out spores whenever they are out traveling that has a high infected rate, or well known or found spore locations. Sam also carries their compound bow, and an average of 12 arrows at a time that are typically seen poking out of their backpack. Upon also carrying a varying amount of scrap material to help craft more arrows, whether it's for hunting or combating infected, or even humans, such as Raiders and other nasty folk. Outside of that, Sam always has a knife that they carry around at all times, strapped to the outer part of their right thigh. And a small, LED flashlight that attaches to the right arm-strap of their backpack.

Other than things for combat and survival purposes, Sam has a few extra outfits tucked away, as well. it should also be noted, that they lastly carry around a small notebook/sketchbook as well. It has an array of different sketches and doodles, mainly from past places they've been since traveling with Ardyn. As well as a few notes scribbled in random pages, as they tend to remind themself of certain things to keep an eye out for. Such as coordinates for locations, certain things people say or have said in passing. Or just general notes for their own sake, and sanity.

P E R S O N A L I T Y
xxxxDependent • Selfless • Mousy • Spontaneous • Loyal

S T R E N G T H S
• Stealth, due to their small frame and lack of height, Sam is able to slip in and out of places, or get to areas the others cannot. Combined with their constant state of silence, and the fact they make next to no sound, Sam is the go-to if you need some scouting working done.
• Non-Verbal Communication, due to being born unable to talk, mixed with the explosion that rendered them entirely deaf, Sam has no way of being able to speak or communicate verbally. Therefore, they've been rendered to using ASL as their main form of communication. Mixed with vague or general gestures. Also due to this, Sam and Ardyn have established a way of communicating whenever they travel, and has come in handy a plethora of times.
• Observation, due to the above mentioned of none verbal communication, Sam is constantly watching their surroundings. Studying everything around them as they aren't able to hear a single sound. Sam tends to be able to notice things others don't. Whether it's spotting an infected or animal in the distance, to reading people's body language. Sam's a master of silent observation, and shouldn't be taken lightly or be overlooked due to what they do lack.

F L A W S
• Entirely Deaf & Mute, while this does have its perks, it is also a double edged sword. While Sam has been able to improve their ability to see things better than most, the fact they cannot hear things or even speak has its immense drawbacks. In a world where communication can mean life or death, the inability to yell out for someone to duck out of aim of gun, or hear the sound of infected. It's caused a few close calls in the past, and Sam knows they can be viewed as a burden, so they're usually always on edge. Trying to make up for where they fall short.
• Limited Strength, Sam has never been one built for close range combat or most things that require certain amounts of physical strength. Which is why when they were with the Fireflies, they were left on Scouting and Observation duty. While that did help hone their skills, it has theoretically bitten them in the ass as their close quarter skills are severely lacking amongst the others. Often times meaning they fall victim to being out-done in terms of strength rather often.


S K I L L S
• American Sign Language (ASL), again should be no surprise. Ever since they were born, Sam has relied on this as their key-form of communication. Mixed with also reading people's lips, writing things down, or over all gestures to things and people have become common place for them to be able to communicate easily with others. Often times Ardyn being the translator between Sam and someone else whenever they are among groups.
• Bow& Arrow, Sam had been trained to use a Compound Bow as their primary form of combat. Due to this, Sam's experience amongst the Fireflies has left them an incredible marksman and shouldn't be someone to underestimate. They have steady hands and an even steadier shot.
• Cooking, growing up in a world like this, combined with the family they had, Sam had learned to cook rather early in life. While Sam is no professional by any means, Sam is able to make some pretty decent food with whatever rations or supplies they come across. Even with canned food or game they get from hunting non-infected animals. Sam is able to make more than due with what they have, and have yet to ever dissapoint their companions.

H I S T O R Y
As far as they are willing to go back, Sam has said that they had grown up in the Quarantine Zone in Austin Texas, before they arrived to the QZ in Boston a few years ago. But before then, Sam and their family which was just them, their father and mother, had lived in an outpost base QZ south-west side of the country. But after that QZ had been attacked by a group of Raiders, they were forced out and on the run. Eventually coming to the QZ in Boston, where life had entirely flipped on its head for Sam and their best friend, Ardyn.

The only thing that Sam knew, was that they were being traded for nothing more than a few Ration Cards, two hand-guns, and a handful of bullets by their parents, and haven't seen them since then. Sam had begged and pleaded for their parents to not do it. That they wouldn't be such a burden anymore, as raising a child who couldn't speak was more than a handful. And Sam knew that. They always did. But Ardyn was so patient with them, and even helped learn sign-language to be Sam's translator. Something Sam has always taken to heart over the years.

But, Sam, was forced into the footsoldier ranks in the Fireflies who had bought them. Alongside Ardyn, who had decided to take it upon herself to watch over them when Sam's parents pawned them off for nothing but temporary supplies. Another life debt that Sam feels like they owe their companion for. Eventually time passed by, and they were both quickly transformed into more or less perfect recruits into the squadron of Fireflies they were assigned to. Often times being split from Ardyn for a few days, to even a few weeks as they were assigned different missions at a time.

It was only during one of their supply runs with a caravan, that a tripwire bomb had gone off when the squad accidentally set it off. Ardyn and Sam had been off to the side when it went off. Thankfully, they both survived the blast with minor damage, nothing more than a few cuts that left minor scarring. But, it was the affects of the blast being so close to Sam that they had entirely lost their hearing due to it.

If having been born a mute wasn't bad enough in a world where communication meant literal life or death, Sam had been further forced to then live in a world of complete silence. Something that Sam had always feared. If they were just able to always hear their friends voice. Then everything would be okay. But when Sam received the news of never being able to hear again, part of them broke. A part that hasn't been entirely fixed in the past four years since it first happened.

But thankfully, Sam has had Ardyn alongside them every step of the way, and couldn't be more thankful, even if their self assigned protector can be rather overbearing at times. Without Ardyn, Sam knows they'd be dead within a few hours of being left alone as they've been traversing the land since. Coming into contact with a few people who they have since become traveling companions with. Sam isn't exactly sure what the siblings' intentions truly are, other than finding the Fireflies that they belonged to. Sam doesn't know how to feel about being mixed with the Fireflies any more than Ardyn does, but until their protector says it's time to leave, they'll remain with the other two contently until the time arises for them to part ways...Least that's been the plan for the past year since they started this journey...
