Born in 2016, before the War of Division, to a family of lower class workers in Portland. Samantha grew up scavenging and hunting to survive. When she was 21 she joined the Oregon National Guard and was almost immediately tossed into the social turmoil of the Division. Her first deployment, Portland, saw her go from green recruit to seasoned veteran. The motorized rifle company she served in would see the heaviest fighting of any outfit during the battle of Portland, and would be awarded with the Cascadian Medal of Valor for their exploits. After her military service came to an end, she began work as a police officer, working for the organized crime/gang unit of Seattle's Civil Protection. The skills she honed and perfected during the war would propel her further up the chain until she was commanding a Federal Security SWAT team. When the Freedom Insurgency emerged, she volunteered to join the Joint Task Force and put a stop to the actions of the terrorists.

Drinking and fighting became regular pastimes of his by age 21. After a particularly nasty barfight, Arthur decided he needed structure to his life. He joined the Canadian military, went to war, and found that he was exceptionally talented at it. He was offered a contract by a fellow JTF2 operator and he accepted without hesitation. He spent the next ten years trotting the globe; From Venezuela to Ukraine, there wasn't a conflict zone he wasn't present at. This, of course, harmed his home life -and his wife would divorce him in early 2044. Feeling jilted, abandoned by his former life, he opted to invest his life in his work. He applied and was selected for the Special Projects unit of USEC later that year. Now he serves as one of USEC's top contractors.
