Prior to the series
Samara was born and raised in Norway. After she finished high school, she traveled to the United States to attend college. However, she eventually dropped out after getting interested in the military. While she was in her second tour, she met Devon Reynolds, a professional duelist after accidentally walking into him and spilling her iced coffee on him. Having never heard of love or seen it work, as her parents never married and they shared joint custody, Samara didn't know what she was feeling after hanging out, and later dating Devon for about two years. She eventually learned what she was feeling was and confessed to Devon about the feeling. With Samara still in the military it was hard for them to do much, but they made it work.
When she was 24, she and Devon married and a year later had Blake. Six years later, she had Kylie. Samara at the time had went from full time active duty to part time. Sadly, when Kylie was four and Blake was 10, Devon passed away from cancer. Samara was extremely heartbroken that the love of her life was gone. She wanted to stay with her children and be there for them, but sadly, she couldn't as she was called away due to the military needing another commanding officer due to the passing of another.
Samara is first mentioned in Chapter 2 where Kylie gets a Video call from her while stationed in Tokyo.
When Duel Academy goes to Domino City for a Field Trip, the gang, minus Kylie, run into Blake and learn that Samara is in a coma after getting an injury.
Samara has passed away due to her zero progress while in the coma and for her best interest, Blake and Kylie had her taken over life support. Despite that, she holds a deep place in her children's hearts but also, is the namesake for Kylie's daughter who she had with an ex-boyfriend: Samara Reynolds.
- Samara was originally named "Alice Reynolds" but was changed.
