Sam Grest is a boy about the same age as Darren. Darren and Evra see him watching the Cirque. The three soon become friends. Sam tries to persuade Darren to let him join The Cirque Du Freak, though Darren won't let him. Trying to sneak in, Sam gets chased by the Wolf Man (who R.V. had let out). The Wolf Man catches Sam who Sam thought was Darren, and eats his insides until Mr. Crepsley comes and knocks him unconscious. Darren drinks Sam dry to only preserve Sam's spirit and memories even though he didn't want to. Sam had a fondness for pickled onions, which Darren then picked up on after drinking his body dry.

The shard of Sam's spirit that Darren carries makes a small appearance in Sons of Destiny, when Darren is being turned into a little person, the shard of Sam's spirit leaves him and moves on to paradise.
