Sam works as a private investigator, under the tutelage of one Melinda May, in San Francisco. He has a good left hook and a tender right hand for stitching. He worries about the business, cause really how many clients are going to trust a woman and a black man, but loves what he does. He has a habit of taking cases that he likely shouldn't; most often as the client can't afford to pay much. This ends up with him working pro bono a lot more often than his boss would like.

In what spare time he can find, he also works at the local air field, tinkering and flying planes; which he fell in love with during his time flying in WW1.

Melinda May's background isn't exactly clear, including what earned her the nickname of "Cavalry" and the begrudging respect of the city's police force. What is clear is that she's distanced herself from the high-end cases that respect could bring her, fading back to the cases that don't make it to the newspaper headlines.

She's built herself a business, but there's only so long you can work alone before losing sight of what's important. Her protégé, Sam Wilson, is a sharp observer with a lot of the good-hearted optimism that Melinda May seems to have lost. She worries about where it will get him -- and whether or not those experiences will leave him in the same place as her. But it's kind of nice to have him around.
