Samuel-034 was a Spartan-II super-soldier who worked closely with Spartans John-117 and Kelly-087 until his death in 2525. Samuel was the first Spartan-II to be killed during the Covenant War, at the age of 14.
Samuel was a quiet, careful listener, and extremely sociable among his fellow Spartans. He cared little for those outside the program, and sometimes displayed ruthless pragmatism when it came to dealing with enemies, including human rebels.
Like all of the SPARTAN-II candidates, Samuel was an extremely talented individual, destined for a great purpose. He recovered from the physical augmentations faster than any of the other Spartans and was the largest and strongest of the Spartan-II personnel. Samuel often acted as Blue Team’s second-in-command and was one the Master Chief's closest friends. During Blue Team’s first sortie against the Covenant at Chi Ceti IV, Sam’s vacuum suit was ruptured by an enemy’s plasma pistol shot, making it impossible for him to escape a bomb the team had placed to destroy a Covenant warship. Instead, he single-handedly held off Covenant forces while his teammates escaped, and was later marked as “missing in action” by John-117. As tragic was it was, this act provided the foundation for not only Blue Team, but the entire SPARTAN-II program, to contest the Covenant. Though it would require sacrifice, they now knew this seemingly unstoppable enemy could be beaten
