Samuel Shahan is one of the pre-made downtownies in The Sims 2: Nightlife. He can be made playable by befriending and asking him to move in, or by marrying him. Samuel's career is randomized at the start of the game and he is mainly interested in Politics.
Samuel's name is randomized when Downtown is generated. The name "Samuel Shahan" is only referenced in the game files. Like most downtownies in The Sims 2, Samuel has a customized face. He uses the 16th face template in Create a Sim, except the eyebrows and nose use the 2nd template, while mouth and jaw use the 1st template.
