Samuel is a member of the settlers residing in Foundation in 2103.


Samuel shares that he is from a vault similar to that of the Vault 76 residents, noting its location is far away and well hidden, insisting that the residents wouldn't have heard of it.[1] He mentions that he misses living there, but is likewise glad to be free of tests subjected upon him.[2][3]

Samuel wears Vault-Tec University athletics gear and uses unique words such as "yinz," "hoagies" and "jawn."[4][5][6] Elsie Taylor notes that Samuel is one of the newer citizens of Foundation.[7] Samuel is light hearted, and enjoys playing Nuka Tapper, although expresses his frustration at losing his saved games.[8] He is also an avid lyricist, though some residents try to avoid being an audience to it.[9]

    Settler: "You miss that vault living, dweller?"
    Samuel: "Nope, no more tests for me. Just give me chill tunes and a cold Nuka-Cherry, thank you."
