Biography: 

Sam Fathers' mother was a slave, the one woman a group of six slaves whom Doom won gambling on a steamboat traveling from New Orleans. She is married to one of the other five. But when she arrives in Mississippi, one of the Indians, Craw-ford or Sam's "pappy," wants to take her for himself. Although a slave, her husband protests. She herself is treated as property during the story, as Doom arbitrates the two men's battle over her, and she bears a child fathered by each man.
