History
Sam was created when a sculptor affiliated with Are We Cool Yet? felt challenged by the modern media’s representation of masculinity and femininity in advertisements. The non-gender-specific artist thought, “I’ll show them what humanity should be, a balance.”

So over six months or so, the artist built a rather stylized statue out of obsidian, split down the middle, the right half male and the left half female. The statue was covered in clay, each side sculpted into rather average male and female halves. Soon the statue was given life through some kind of strange modern magic bullshit (seriously, the artist has no idea what happened, but that guy in the suit in the alleyway that gave him the means to do it seemed nice enough).

Sam the statue was brought to a gallery exhibition, the artist expecting the gallery-goers to praise such a poignant commentary on the modern media. Instead, the two were laughed out of the exhibition. Humiliated, the artist threw Sam out on their own, declaring Sam a failed statement before slamming the door.

Sam wandered for a long while, heartbroken, before stumbling upon the Tamlin House through a strange hallway under a mountain.

What does your character fear? Rejection by those they feel are friends.

What are your character's goals? Sam’s goals are to make a name for themself, to do something people can look at and say “that was awesome”. To prove to others and themself that they’re more than average.

If your character could be an animal, which one would it be? … Uh. Chameleon?

What is your character's dearest wish? To make people proud of them.

Why is your character here? Sam is here because they’re trying to find a home.

If your character had a tattoo, or another one, what would it be? A smiley face, in the centre of their statue-skeleton’s chest.

If your character could have any superpower, what would it be? Humanoid shapeshifting. If choosing their own power, Sam would probably choose flight.

What is your character's greatest weakness? Sam can try too hard to impress, sometimes; additionally, they try too hard to be helpful and are a bit prone to suggestion.

What is your character's greatest strength? Sam’s greatest strength is that they try to see situations from every possible angle.

MISC: In all likelihood, I'll call Sam He or She depending on the situation, and how they're acting. Additionally, I do not intend to have romances with Sam, because they are a golem; making them viable as both male and female opens up far too much silliness.
