Affectionately known as “Uncle Sam” by locals near his hometown of Livingston, Texas, Samuel Caywood remains something of a mystery. One thing everyone will tell you ‘bout Sam is that he’s a great lover of people. And really, of animals too. He’s a guy who’ll go out of his way to help just about anyone or anything in need. Maybe that’s why the people of Livingston tried to elect him mayor. But Sam declined, and the county clerk kept bringing up something about him not having the proper records either, whatever that meant.

Sam is a gambler, though, and though it was rumored that he once was fairly wealthy, he just lives out in a little shack off in the desert. Never really pays taxes, the feds tried to evict him twice, but to no avail. Even though Sam’s a great guy, he’s not afraid to fight for justice when he has to. But diplomacy is always his first course of action. Cost him a bullet through his favorite hat once when he tried to explain to his ex girlfriend why he’d sold her ‘oss, but that’s just the way he is…
