History:
(Silver Sable and the Wild Pack#15/1) - Hired by Silver Sable International as P.R. specialist, Samantha met the Wild Pack in her first tour at the Symkarian Embassy and expressed her preferences toward Battlestar. Doug, her cousin, was not so pleased.

(Silver Sable and the Wild Pack#16/1) - Samantha followed the Wild Pack in Somalia. There she organized an interview for Silver Sable with CNN. The interview was not friendly, the reporter subtly accused Silver Sable to create situations of need for the Wild Pack in order to charge her high rates of payment for the solutions. After Sable shoved the reporter to the ground she ordered Samantha to fix the situation.

(Silver Sable and the Wild Pack#18/1) - Despite the maltreatment that Silver Sable gave to the CNN reporter, the Wild Pack's work in Somalia improved the public perception of SSI. Samantha proposed to Silver to make some appearances on TV shows. Silver did not even reply to her, very worried about the financial problems of her organization.

    Samantha left, dreaming to find Battlestar in the showers.

   Contrarily at how it initially seemed, Silver made an appearance on a talk show. Even though Sable spoke the truth about her organization, Samantha was not pleased by the result.

(Silver Sable and the Wild Pack#20/1) - Samantha wore her Ramones jacket and invited Battlestar to go out into town. But Lemar had already a date with Lightbright and refused.

Samantha stayed at the Embassy. She chose to watch MTV. The Black Fox sneaked into the Embassy to steal some jewels he cared for, and knocked Samantha and everyone else inside unconscious with ether routed through the ventilation system.

(Silver Sable and the Wild Pack#30) - Silver Sable was imprisoned. Morty announced the news to the employees in the embassy, including the Wild Pack, the Intruders, Samantha and others. Morty made it clear that Silver did not wish any of her employees to try to free her. Samantha admitted that she was not able to fix the bad publicity caused by this.

(Silver Sable and the Wild Pack#33) - When Silver Sable returned to Symkaria from her solo mission in Japan, she took a drastic decision: the retirement from active duty. She announced her decision to the Wild Pack and to the others, Samantha included.
