Sam is the father of Fareeha Amari. He and Ana had conceived her prior to the Omnic Crisis. It is unknown whether they were married, or just lovers, and whether or not Sam shares the Amari name.

Sam was first seen in Reflections, eating dinner with his daughter in Canada.


  • There was a lot of speculation about the identity of Pharah's father in the months following Ana's release, with characters such as Reinhardt, Jack Morrison and Gabriel Reyes all speculated as candidates.
  • Sam's occupation was revealed at GDC 2017[1] and his name was revealed at Blizzcon 2017.[2].
