Before the Seven Hour War
After the Uprising
Located deep within the Quarantine Zone, Alyx Vance passes through a long abandoned hotel on her way to the Vault. Once inside the basement, she is first introduced to a Reviver, nicknamed "lightning dogs", which can enter host bodies and generate electricity. Eventually, she reaches a Combine substation built onto the side of the building which is keeping the Vault afloat in the sky. She discovers that each substation contains an enslaved Vortigaunt which is forced to channel its electrical energy to the Vault to power it. Grateful for its freedom, the liberated Vortigaunt promises Alyx to rally its peers to take down the remaining substations.
