Sam was tasked with finding information about a secret paranormal development laboratory. He was paired with a Russian named Nikolaj Sorokin. As they accessed the lab, they found, not only strange technology but also stolen works of art and valuable artifacts. They filled their pockets but when they came across a Roman coin, there was a debate who would get it. They flipped the coin and Sam won the toss. He put the coin in his pocket and they continued to search. They found what they were looking for -an AIU: Advanced Infiltration Unit. They managed to collect as much information and documents as he could. Grabbing the suit, they set out to leave when a siren broke the silence of the night. The two ran out into the darkness but troops and dogs were dispatched and their escape route was cut off.
Since Nikolai could shape-shift, he could easily escape. Sam decided to take a chance and put on the experimental suit. Instantly, the AIU suit tried to take control of Sam’s mind. Nikolaj, seeing Sam was in no shape to continue, created a diversion giving Sam enough time to battle off the entity. Gaining control, Sam teleported away and met up with Nikolaj at their rendez-vous point.
Sam threw the small coin to Nikolai,
“I guess it’s a lucky penny. I owe you one.”
From that time forward, anytime one bails the other out of trouble, the coin changes hands.

He’d been given his orders very last minute. A scientist had tried to defect from an alleged Nazi Magical Weapons R&D Lab. All he had was a picture, a rough location and twenty-four hours.
He didn’t need to take the job; it was voluntary because of the limited intelligence they had. All he’d have is the tools he carried and his wits but someone wanted out and he was the only one who was in a position to do it. There wasn’t really any question.

He’d been “officially” kicked out of the SOE for a short time, wandering the country-side when he was caught in a bombing raid. Barely surviving the raid, he climbed out of the ruins he’d called a shelter only to see creatures devouring injured soldiers and civilian. One man was fighting them off, so Sam decided to make himself a target by hijacking an ambulance, running over two of the creatures, encouraging them to follow him instead
