Sam[3] is the former partner of Ana Amari and father of Fareeha. He hails from an Indigenous nation on Canada's Pacific Northwest coast.[4]

Story[edit | edit source]

Sam and Ana became a couple before the Omnic Crisis.[5] The two ended up having a daughter named Fareeha.[6] The relationship between Fareeha and Sam was "complicated," but she spent part of her childhood with him in Canada. The two enjoyed Canadian butter tarts during the Christmas holidays.[7]

Years later, even after she returned from hiding after her supposed death in Poland, Ana kept her survival secret from Sam, stating "I made a big enough mess of his life without having to give him the news."[5]

During Christmas,[8] Sam had dinner with Fareeha, who had traveled to Canada for the holidays.[6]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

The "Newborn" spray.
  • Sam first appeared in the comic Tracer: Reflections, but went unnamed in it, and was only confirmed to be Pharah's father by Michael Chu later.[6] His first name was revealed even later at BlizzCon 2017.[3]
  • A younger Sam is depicted in Ana's Uprising exclusive spray "Newborn".
  • "Bastet" indicates that he and Ana were married. By the time of the short story, Ana no longer wears her wedding ring, but it is unclear whether or not they divorced.[5]
