|Faction||The Rift, Riften, Honorhall Orphanage|
Samuel is an Imperial orphan.
Like the rest of the children at the Orphanage, Samuel is unhappy there and hates Grelod the Kind for how she treats them.
If the Dragonborn kills Grelod, he will be thankful and won't report it to the guards.
Samuel never met his parents. Grelod said his mother worked at the Orphanage but she died during child birth, so he never got to meet her. He doesn't say anything about what happened to his father. All he wants is to have a real family.
