Wussy is a big, dark-skinned man who often wears a shapeless fishing hat. He is Sam's long-time friend, even though their friendship suffers off and on from racial tensions. Wussy goes on a fishing trip with Sam and Ned (when Sam kidnaps Ned for the weekend). Wussy teaches Ned how to fish. He also looks out for Ned's well being. He is a loyal friend who is always around when Sam needs him, even if their friendship is on the outs.
