Ivan the Space Biker
|The contents of this article have been cut.|
The subject matter of this article contains in-development information that was cut from the final version of an official and/or canonical source and appears in no other canonical source. It may also contain incomplete information since not all cut material is publicly known.
This article is about the early character. For his successor, see Gordon Freeman.
Ivan has a full, wild beard that made him look like a typical biker, as well as a bulbous grey-green HEV Suit (with "Research" written on the back) that resembled a space suit, hence the nickname of "Ivan the Space Biker". He also has a flattop haircut and no glasses. The beard was heavily reduced to eventually turn into the current Gordon's stylish goatee. Of note is that he already had brown hair and green eyes. The model, "doctor.mdl", can be found in some releases of Half-Life, including the Steam release, but it cannot be opened because it uses an early version of .MDL format; however it is correctly recompiled for Half-Life: Source, making it viewable and usable in the Source version. In Half-Life Alpha, there are three alternate skins for Ivan; red, green, and blue.
