Samantha Maxis is a character in Call of Duty: Zombies. She is heard on two radio messages on the map Der Riese (The Giant in German). These messages suggest that she was killed when her father, Dr. Ludvig Maxis, experimented on her pet dog (Fluffy) and accidentally created the Hellhound and was locked in the room with it and her father when Richtofen locked the door and escaped. She is apparently being followed by Tank , Nikolai, Takeo and Richtofen as stated by the doctor's radio message before Kino der Toten. In Ascension, it is revealed that she led Yuri Kravcheski (Gersch's assistant) to insanity and made him release the zombies there. Samantha is probably the 'she' Gersch talks about while the player(s) are fixing the Kassimir Mechanism. In Call of the Dead, it is said that Richtofen was experimenting on her behind Ludvig's back. This could have let her survive and become super-human.

When you recieve a teddy bear from a Mystery Box, a child's laugh (as well as a demonic one is heard) as well as the games over-voice saying 'bye-bye'. This is probably Samantha's teddy bear. The hellhounds might also be controlled by her as she might be the one shouting, 'Fetch me their souls!' at the beginning of a hellhound round. She also speaks when the monkey bomb is thrown into the furnace on Der Riese.

Now for some random facts:

  • In Samantha's room on Kino der Toten, there is a model replica of Der Riese complete with the characters
  • It is possible that Samantha was released when you released Gersch, as Takeo says that they have released something else as well
  • In the Kino dressing room, on a pillar across from the MP5K it reads 'Samantha Emilia Abigail'. It is unknown what this means, or if it referring to Samantha, as it does not say Maxis on the end. some theories are that it is her password to her account on the DERRIESE server on the computer; her two middle names or the names of two of her friends (the last one originated here.
