Currently: Traveling with Brynne to Amirka in Sirasea to meet with a horse buyer
Samson was born in Twin Rivers in Drael. His mother was a Draelian whore, and he never knew his father, but assumes that he was Sirasean, because of his brown hair. Samson grew up poor in the city, but his mother loved him and did the best she could. He worked odd jobs through his teens, then hired on as a traveling guard and mercenary. As he gained experience, he traveled throughout Drael and Sirasea, wherever he could find work for a capable sword hand.
About fifteen years ago, he was in Drael City and met Brynne’s father, a young man just buying good horseflesh to start a breeding ranch in Yewll. Alain hired Samson, and he has worked as his trust right-hand man, guard, and friend ever since.
