Samuel Campbell is a hunter and the father of Mary Campbell and husband of Deanna Campbell. In 1972, Samuel had discovered that the Akrida were trying to invade Earth and has been trying to track down how the Men of Letters had previously prevented this when he goes missing. At this time he and Deanna are separated, having had relationship difficulties since the death of their niece Maggie at the hands of a vampire. They had also previously had a break when Mary was younger.
Samuel has found that the Akrida, an ancient enemy have resurfaced. In the past they were stopped by the Men of Letters, but due to having been wiped out for 15 years are unable to prevent their return. With the help of Ada Monroe, Samuel tracked down a device -- the Monster Box -- that can stop them. On the road, Samuel phoned his daughter Mary, and gave her the address of the long deserted Men of Letters Clubhouse in Lawrence, where he told her to look for a schematic which will guide them in using the Box. Arriving in New Orleans, Samuel enters a crypt and opens a tomb using a blood sigil. However he is interrupted by a loup-garou and tries to escape. Above ground in the cemetery he trips as an Akrida descends on him from the dark.
Ada reveals that Samuel found evidence at a Men of Letters office in Savannah, Georgia of how the Akrida had crossed over before. If they find that point, then the Monster Box can stop them.
Arriving at the Men of Letters office in Savannah, the group finds it littered with zombie corpses. Mary finding spent shotgun shells on the floor with her fathers signature, surmises that he had escaped. Due to Samuel always covering his tracks, Mary believes he has left a message for her with the shotgun shells and a newspaper clipping about a boy going missing in Topeka, Kansas. Believing her father to be there, Mary leads the crew to Topeka in search of her father.
After being cornered by the Akrida, Mary and John are saved by Samuel with the Ostium, just as the Akrida break through the door.
