Character Disposition
Kenway is not chained by petty moral alignments. He is what he pleases and what he needs to be, given the situation. Either way, his own interests come before anyone else's.

A Millenial punk, at a mere 23 years old, he might be the youngest kid in the block, but he's become of one of the most talked-about guys in the indy scene. He knows he's the future and is betting on himself as much as possible. Believing that the "art" of fighting is dying out, Samuel wants to bring some class and prestige into the sport. In his journey to trying to attain this extensive knowledge of wrestling to the fullest extent, he has circled the globe, absorbing any and all craft of the sport. His goal is to break the cycle, the mold so as to speak. A wrestler first but an opportunist and businessman second, Sam wants to establish his own idealogy of what combat is supposed to be. Kenway loves fame and money and wishes to open his own line of wrestling apparel and school someday, but it is a long-term goal. He's like the quintessential anime villain, which is no surprise since he spent much of his years training in Japan. Right now Sam is just a hungry fighter who is out for experience and street cred. He knows he won't have success handed on a silver platter, so he's now out to prove himself and garner an image/following so as to speak. The biggest leaps require the smallest of steps.

Theme Music

Entrance Description
The lights dim as the arena titantron erupts pillars of flame. A slash of blade resonates the arena and Samuel walks out of the back and faces the crowd from the stage. He then points to the ring and shouts "Mine!" and walks down the ramp, not taking his eyes off the ring. He then climbs the steps and goes up the buckle to top rope and overlooks the crowd.

Entrance Attire
Black jacket with tights and boots.

Segment Attire
Unless he's in the segment right before or after the match, in which case it would be the entrance attire, his more formal look is usually a suit. Colours may vary.

To build his repertoire and brand
To face the toughest of fights and live to tell the tale
To Crush his enemies, see them driven before him and hear the lamentation of their women

Tendency to Cheat
Ask yourself, would one wish to swim across a crocodile-infested lake if there's a bridge that simply allows one to traverse over it? The destination is what matters, what SHOULD matter. If people with no ambition or drive wish to label such an act as "cheating" be it.

Wrestling Style
Explosive and acrobatic, yet graceful and precise. Samuel is a showman through and through, he will taunt, he will boast, he will try to intimidate, he will laugh and jeer, but also respect and even clap when his opponents give him a good time in the ring. The name "swissblade" did not get attributed to him for nothing, but in all honestly, it works against him sometimes. When you're the jack of all trades, you're the best in none. But that is fine, as long as a problem exists, you can bet Sam will know the solution. While primarily his moveset is inclined towards a strongstyle brawler/highflyer, he will occasionally pop off power moves, technical wrestling and even mat wrestling.

Favorite Match Types
Last man standing/endurance type matches. Long drawn matches mean Kenway is facing a worthy opponent who is just as good as he is, which only makes Kenway that much more determined to shatter their dreams in the ring.

Least Favorite Match Types
Handicap, I feel bad for the wrestlers that are to face me, clearly "solo" is not a word in their dictionary!

Favorite Weapon
The back of the hand of enough but if I must, I will use a switchblade, usually the hilt, but I won't shy away from the blade itself when needed. If it matters, Sam is more of a "the pen is mightier than the sword" kind of guy. He's not looking to kill someone.
