Samuel Wade Garrett
Background: Sam was born on a Triumph ranch. Fascinated by stories of the outlaws and heroes of the frontier planets, he left home at an early age and began to roam. He'd take any job available in order to sate his wanderlust. He soon learned that his fast reflexes and sharp senses combined with a gun could make him more than regular jobs. He worked on both sides of the law and never seemed to settle on which side he preferred. He has been a robber, an assassin, a bounty hunter and a sheriff. In actuality, he's just been a gunslinger putting his skill to use in whatever job was available at the time. He even spent a few years in prison. During the Unification War, he worked mostly with the Browncoats. He was too old to join the Alliance and saw the Unification slowly whittling away the frontier he loved. He'd always been partial to the bottle, but fell to drinking heavily during the war. He'd lost most of his friends, spent some time in jail, pawned anything of value including his guns, and ended up sick and on the streets of a rim planet town. He was fortunate enough to encounter a kind couple who helped him get back on his feet by providing him with medical care and a job. A few years later while doing ranch hand work on a border planet, he heard about that same couple being murdered and decided to head out to the Rim to pay his respects. Sam met their strong-minded daughter and sussed out her plans. He thought the least he could do was keep her from getting killed, so when he couldn't convince her to go home he hired on as her First Mate... and bought a gun.
