Box-like jewel attached to a necklace
|Chronological and political information|
To remember his wife, Eli managed to save a picture of her and Alyx as a baby, which he kept safe with him in Black Mesa East and later White Forest during the uprising. Azian can also be seen with Eli on the Kleiner's Lab cork board on a small newspaper clip pinned on the bottom-left. It is unknown if Azian was a Black Mesa scientist, had another occupation, or was merely a housewife.
According to the family picture, it seems that the little box-like jewel Alyx is wearing around her neck originally belonged to Azian. Along with the family picture, it was salvaged somehow by Eli, while he does not mention it to Gordon at Black Mesa East when he mentions what he managed to carry out of Black Mesa.
 Behind the scenes
As heard in sound files featured in the Half-Life 2 leak files, Eli was to explain to Gordon at Black Mesa East that, after the Resonance Cascade, he found Alyx alone with her mother's wedding ring in her hand. While Eli still wears his wedding ring in the final game, no ring can be found on Alyx's model, and no reference to it is ever made.
