Samson is one of the first Juggerknights, and, as a result, one of the last great knights left in existance. As a young page, Samson served Lord Bram Beriaur, mayor of the old Great Knight Capital Invinojug, who inflicted harsh punishments upon his servants for failing to submit to authority, something which Samson rarely experienced himself, but loathed Beriaur for it. One day, while on an errand for his master, he became lost and discovered multiple locked chambers, which he succeeded in breaking into to find large quantities of scriptures and scrolls hidden within. This angered him further - the fact that the Great Knights had gone to great lengths to obtain and hide away these artifacts and writings - and fuelled his hidden hatred for many Great Knight leaders which gravitated him towards Chaos. Many of his friends also joined him in pursuing the knowledge concealed by their masters, most notably Delphius and Vince.
Samson would later become a Great Knight, but aligned himself with reformists such as General Hallstav who sought to spread the knowledge and introduce more liberal elements. Samson participated in the Eclipse Expedition, for which he was later returned home early to face a court hearing regarding Beriaur's property. Eventually, he defected to Chaos when they arrived outside Invinojug and became a Juggerknight. However, in that event, both Vince and Hallstav did not join him in defecting to Chaos, despite their promise, which severely upset Samson, who later had to fight them during their attempts to wipe out the remaining Great Knights.
Though he tries to hide it, he finds no enjoyment in tormenting prisoners and enemies the way his younger brethren do, preferring to train himself into the perfect warrior instead. In his younger years Samson became incredibly interested in ancient military tactics which he discovered from the hidden scriptures. As a result, Samson was valued for his fighting ability and he constantly maintained his weapons to an impeccable standard. Because of his early recruitment and immense power, Medusa has him instruct many of the younger generations of Juggerknights since none of his colleagues have the capability nor desire to do so. Samson is stubbornly loyal and devoted, and prefers death to dishonoring his promises. Samson fought in several battles against Order, finally succumbing to his wounds during the final stage of the last war. According to reports, even though he was on the verge of death, Samson still managed to slaughter an entire battalion of Swordwraths, and a several Speartons and Shadowraths were required to finally send this stubborn warrior to whatever afterlife he believed awaited him (undoubtedly, he found it and rests easy nowadays).
