In his past-life, Sampson was one big....bad...dude...The ex-New Orleans police detective lived a life of violence and corruption. After being taken from his life by Secord, he was granted incredible strength and stamina. Yet he is haunted by the fact that he acts first and thinks later. He considers himself a bruiser...even in this new life. It is not until a haunted prison, featuring the cursed souls of long dead prisoners, becomes a problem that Sampson shows his true "gift".
