I came from a Vault, just like you. You've never heard of it. It's really far away. And hidden. Like really hidden. I don't even know how to get to it. Like at all.

Samuel is a member of the settlers residing in Foundation.

Background

Samuel arrived at Foundation some time in 2103. Elsie Taylor notes he is one of the settlement's newer citizens.[2] He shares that he is from a Vault similar to that of the Vault 76 dwellers, noting its location is far away and well hidden, insisting that those inquiring would not have heard of it, and that he doesn't even know how to get back to.[3] Samuel mentions that he misses living there, but is likewise glad to be free of tests subjected upon him.[4][5] However, the apparel that he wears is from Vault-Tec University.

Samuel is light hearted, and enjoys playing Nuka Tapper, although expresses his frustration at losing his saved games.[6] He is also an avid lyricist, though some residents try to avoid being an audience to it.[7][8] Samuel attempts to use regional words such as "yinz," "hoagies" and "jawn," though he expresses confusion with the terms and says he cannot keep up, referring to the different dialects that are found in Foundation's diverse populace.[9][10][11] He is also good friends with Jen, whom occasionally joins in scavenging hunts.[1] He also states that she has a style he can respect.[12]

At Foundation, while Ward is still trying to figure out what he's best at, Samuel mostly works on whatever is needed.[13] At the moment, though, he is fairly occupied with repairs[14] and scavenging.[8] After the Vault 79 heist, Ward assigns him as Foundation's gold bullion trader.[15]

  • If the player character chooses to kill Mochou, Jen will continue to work with Foundation until All That Glitters, in which she will mention she's going to bury her mother beside her father to the north in the Capital Wasteland, and that Samuel will accompany her.
