Private Samantha "Sam" Byrne (voiced by Claudia Black), Sam's father, Sergeant Samuel Byrne, fell in battle at the Siege of Anvil Gate in Anvegad, Kashkur before the birth of his daughter. Sam has followed in his footsteps ever since. She first became acquainted with Delta at Vectes Naval Base, and later served alongside Marcus and company against the rise of the Stranded insurgency at New Jacinto. Sam is headstrong, aggressive, and has a knack for tattooing; she was responsible for the angelic depiction of Maria on Dom's arm, whom she shared somewhat of an relationship with. She acts as a part of Delta Squad in Gears of War 3 and has a somewhat adversarial/romantic relationship with Baird.
