Utilizing his swarthy complexion, only betrayed by his piercing blue eyes, Samson is a master of disguise; using his talents as a spy and assassin for British Intelligence throughout Afghanistan and India, 1919-1945. His friend and longtime Chinese man-servant, Private Chung, was always near with his cricket bat, Clicky-Ba, dolling out brutal beatings to Samson’s would be attackers.
Born in 1897, the only son of William Samson Sr., stagecoach driver for Mina Murray’s League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen, 1898-1905. Tragically, Chung was killed by Kumbalari border guards when the two tried to escape the hermit kingdom on a motorbike following a clandestine mission in 1944. Samson joined MI6 around 1938.
