Sam is a larcenous Sqid (Because "U" shouldn't go near them) from the webcomic Freefall. He owns a robot named "Helix" and employs an anthropomorphic wolf female as an engineer. Sam's zany get-rich-quick scemes often lead to injury. He is quite petty as villains go. He has considered going straight multiple times, but it's more fun to dodge the mob of angry townsfolk.

Being a larcenous layabout is a point of pride for Sam. He will only sneak into movies (because it's more fun that way), and steals his neigbor's flatbed truck instead of borrowing it. He also comments that there's nothing better than food bought with stolen money.
