Character bio

A Miner Named Sam

Main article: A Miner Named Sam

Born in the deep south, Sam made his way westward. Sam Wrikon was a black silver miner in an all-white town of Applestream. He often had a stern, angry face, and almost never spoke a word to anyone. When a major accident occurred in the mines, he was accused by some of the miners of being responsible. He was punished by being thrown in a cabin on the outskirts of town, of which the previous resident had died of cholera. The one-room cabin was locked up and beehives were thrown through the windows.

Bees swarmed him and he died from excessive stings. The weather turned stormy as he died alone with his affliction of bees in the fall of 1892. Since then, the condemned cabin, could never be torn down. All who ventured inside the cabin for shelter returned claiming they’d seen the ghost of Honeybee Samuel, gazing at them menacingly. Demolition crews could never tear down the cabin. They would always meet either with mudslide or blizzard or and angry swarm of bees when they tried to tear down the cabin. Since his death, his spirit, bound to the evil ghost-hag Meshaluta; has also been bound to the cabin. His cabin is considered haunted and cursed by townsfolk.

Explanation of tree

  • See that for his Earth-G1 counterpart.


  • Candi's self-control issues, especially around Donte, were initially explained as her having inherited a curse from Sam Wrikon.
    • Later, this was retconned to her problems being brought on by years of dealing with sexual harassment in school. Sam was made a nominal part of her history, reduced to being little more.
  • He became both a Marlquaanite ghost and a servant of Meshaluta in every version of the story prior to Cataclysmic Gerosha. After that, Meshaluta was no longer acknowledged as existing; thus eliminating her as an entity for him to have followed.
