Sam Smoke is a young Mountie who is being escorted back to Canada in disgrace because of something he did wrong. He is a honourable and kind hearted young man that is genuinely sorry for his mistake. He wants to go home to Canada, but doesn’t want to go in handcuffs.
Smoke is scared of animals and he becomes very nervous when he’s around them. He is quite realistic, and finds it hard to believe that Dublin has been living with and talking to Polar bears. He asks her how she managed to disappear from the human world in the first place, and she shows him how.
