"I can believe things that are true and I can believe things that aren't true and I can believe things where nobody knows if they're true or not."

–Sam to Shadow, Chapter Thirteen

Samantha Black Crow gives Shadow a ride while driving through Illinois and drops him off at Ibis and Jacquel Funeral Parlor.


Sam is spiritually cynical for someone who claims to believe in so much. She lives life with fierce confidence and openness, selling the chainsaw art she carves by the roadside for extra money.[1]
