She was the wife of Vazz the Hedgehog but a falling out cause them to split up and have her kids stay with her parents after Vazz found them. She is a black belt in karate and a weapons expert. She is now the leader of the Mobius branch unit of GUN and has intentions to make the world a better place if it means killing Vazz in the process despite still harboring feelings for him still. She stepped aside from taking care of her kids to taking her work seriously and it caused a massive strain on herself after they decided to stay with Vazz instead of her. In the Epilogue, Emerald visits Samantha hugging her one more time before he hands her a gem of an Emerald with the picture of her family with Vazz, She cried and hugged her son and said "Make me and your father proud". As she sees him off on his adventures.
When Samantha was just five years old, she had got seperated from her parents Blossom the skunk and Lightning the skunk. Knowing that she was all alone, she had to fend for herself by stealing foods from nearby stalls and then saw people walking by with jewels, this caught her attention when she over heard about how much money people could get from these stones. This began the adventures of the jewel thief Samantha the Skunk.
As soon as Samantha gathered enough gems, she traded them in for money and got herself a passport at just 8 years old. She sneaked in with a family onto a plane to Mobius where she attended the local school. She met Adele the Hedgehog and Violet the bat and they all became close friends. There she also met her future husband Vazz the hedgehog, they also became friends but as time passed Vazz grew feelings for her.
A few years later and Samantha moved into her own house (thanks to more gem stealing) at just 15. She was the top student in her high school and was very popular.
After Samantha had graduated from high school, she decided to keep up stealing gems. She kept this going until she was 18 where she was offered a place at G.U.N. Samantha became a spy for the government and on the way dated many guys such as, Sonic, Knuckles and Shadow. Later, she met a hedgehog named Slash and the two fell in love and got married. They both had two children, Flash the hedgeskunk and Laura the hedgeskunk. Life was good. Unfortunally for Slash, Samantha was reunited with Vazz the hedgehog after years of seperation where he confessed his feelings to her. Samantha was swept off her feet and started secretly seeing Vazz. Samantha and Vazz kept this up for about a year until they decided it was finally time for them to tell Slash. Things got very very bad. Slash was furious and left taking Flash and Laura with him, however Laura refused to leave her mother's side and so Slash only took Flash. This broke Samantha's heart seeing her own son leave her.
A year later Vazz (19) and Samantha (19) moved in together and got married. They had two twins, Jade the hedgehog and Sky the skunk. Another year later and Samantha gave birth to a beautiful baby boy, Emerald the Hedgeskunk.
Samantha now only works as a part time spy and a part time secertary for G.U.N.
Samantha was fed up with Vazz and they divorced after 3 years together and wanted to take the kids to her parents. Vazz had no choice and soon after Samantha worked up the ranks til she became the leader of GUN.
