"I'm with you every step of the way."
― Russell[src]

Russell is a prominent Resistance member and inventor of the Gravity Gloves who appears in Half-Life: Alyx.


Half-Life: Alyx[edit]

5 years before the destruction of the Citadel, Russell is a Resistance member who is working closely in conjunction with his friend, former Black Mesa scientist Eli Vance.

When Eli, and subsequently, his daughter Alyx gets captured by the combine during a sector sweep, Russell manages to remotely break Alyx free from Civil Protection custody with the help of a drone. He does this by causing an "accident" in which the Civil Protection car holding Alyx is destroyed. The drone also leads Alyx to Russell. After Alyx arrives in his lab, Russell briefs Alyx on the plan he has hatched to get her father out. Having done that, he lends Alyx the Gravity Gloves as well as his pistol. For the rest of the mission, Russell plays a remotely supporting role, and is never again seen in person. He provides Alyx with advice, intel and at times converses with her over the intercom. Their plan is successful and when Eli Vance gets back safely (presumably to Russell's lab), Russels relief is heard on the intercom.

Russells fate after the events of the game is currently unknown.


In the game files, he is known as "Lazlo".
