Russ was a colonist living at the Pype's Dream colony[1] on the planet Rim in the 2170s with his wife Sarah, his son Vick, and his daughter Billie. During an expedition in 2179, with his family and family friend Gene Zendall, Russ came across a strange crash site after picking up anomalous readings. Russ, Sarah, and Gene left the transport to investigate the wreckage; while inside the downed ship, the three examined an alien creature's remains. Subsequently, Russ discovered several eggs; leaning over one to investigate as it opened, Russ was attacked by a strange creature. After being dragged out of the ship by his wife and friend, Russ was taken back to the colony. Russ later died as an alien creature emerged from his chest, and the colony was eventually infested and overrun by other creatures that emerged from several of his fellow colonists, who were also infected. His daughter Billie was the sole survivor from the colony.

Behind the scenes[]

Russ Jorden

Russ was originally Russ Jorden before Newt was scripted to die in Alien3.

Russ' daughter Billie was originally Newt from the movie Aliens, effectively making Russ Russ Jorden from the film. However, after Newt was scripted to die in Alien3, the character and her backstory were retconned into similar characters.
