"I am an explorer, intellectual and soldier of fortune. And now, apparently, a pirate."
User: JC
Race: Human
Gender: Male
Role: Striker
Class: Buccaneer
Athletic but intellectual type, sun-browned and well-seasoned. Ambidextrous.
Born in Andoria, Sam grew up wanting to travel, to sleep under stars far away from home. So, Sam naturally joined the Pathfinder Society, searching for artifacts of lost power.

Sam started off as a chaotic good believer of Desna, and had a special affinity towards the Mwangi Expanse and its lost civilizations. Then, during his first voyage to the Mwangi Expanse, something strange happened -- Sam fell in love with the sea. Although he finished his first trip to the Mwangi Expanse, Sam was forevermore entranced by the Sea. While Desna retains a place in his heart, Sam really belongs to Besmara and her element.

Naturally disdainful of rules and regulations, Sam had always had a good heart nevertheless (i.e. chaotic good like most Andorians). His fundamental goodness, however, was sorely tested after Fipps, ahem, took advantage of him. After killing Fipps with help from his new "friends", Sam's probably closer to being chaotic neutral rather than good. He's also got a big mouth -- he loves to tell stories about his travels, and often says stuff that would remain better unsaid.
