Sam, also known as Sammy is a character that appears in The Walking Dead: Road to Survival.


Sam was born shortly before the outbreak, with a congenital disability.


At the beginning of the outbreak, Sam was saved by nurse Tom, as his family did not come for him. Over the following years, Tom raised the boy and taught him survival skills, as well as reading. At some point, the two met Nick, who decided to make a wheelchair for the boy.

River Potomac

Sam and Tom met Arturo's group on their way to Ypsilanti. When Arturo asked them for help in fighting the walkers, they agreed, because according to Sam, they always help strangers. After learning that the survivors were heading to Detroit, Tom suggested that they walk together to the town of Ypsilanti. The survivors agreed and left for Ypsilanti after breakfast.

On the way to Ypsilanti, Sam noticed that someone was following them. As it turned out, they were bandits living in a car dealership. The group managed to leave the territory of the bandits, but Isabella was wounded in the leg, which is why the group decides to stay overnight in one of the abandoned shops, after Arturo, Aira and Tyler killed the walkers.

The next day, the group meets Nick. They help him bring the materials to his workshop. However, they are soon attacked by bandits who want to kill Nick and Sam, due to their disabilities. Sam was furious that he was considered weak. The survivors managed to fight off the bandits and after the fight, Sam was finally able to sit down for the first time in the chair created for him by Nick. The boy was glad and hoped that Nick would add some spikes. After getting rid of the walkers Nick, Tom, and Sammy said goodbye to Arthur's group, who continued their journey to Canada.
