Sam Adama is a fictional male human criminal hardman who works for The Adama Family in the Battlestar Galactica franchise. He has been portrayed on screen by Sasha Roiz. Sam Adama is the brother of Joseph Adama and uncle of both Tamara and William Adama. Tamara was one of those people who killed onboard a train in a terrorist attack.
Sam is a hitman who has assassinated people who have got on the wrong side of his employers. Sam is one of the very few gay characters in sci-fi and his character gets married to his partner.
In the opening pilot, he assassinates a minister of the government by sneaking into the ministers house barefooted and chested and slashes the minister`s throat. Presumably, in Caprica, no one`s heard of footprints and DNA as he would have left tons of evidence behind him in his kill. Joseph even asks Sam to assassinate Amanda Graystone but at the last moment, the request is withdrawn by Joseph.
In Rebirth, Sam takes William under his wing to tell him about the Tauron way. The talk ends in Sam emptying a trash can and throwing it at a shop window. Both Sam and William run but are arrested by the Police. Their custody is short-lived due to lack of evidence and the police being unaware of what Sam had done moments beforehand.
On Tauron, the planet is in under the control of a dictatorship. One night, the Adama brothers witness a murder outside their apartment. Sam goes down to collect the weapon and hide it in their apartment.
The apartment is searched by Government enforcers who discover the weapon that killed the government official. The lead enforcer interrogates the Adama`s father about the gun but isn`t able to tell them anything about it. The father is killed by the Enforcers forcing Sam to take things into his own hands and kill the Government officers before the Adama escape.
