Los Angeles, California
Russell is a student at Paul R. Williams High School.
Russell is seen asleep during a lecture in Travis Manawa's English class until he is woken up by Travis. He initially struggles to understand the idea of Jack London's short story "The Art of Making Fire," until Travis coaxes him into indirectly revealing the correct answer.
As the city of Los Angeles quickly fell to the undead, Russell's fate remains unclear. It is unknown whether he was able to survive the outbreak or was killed and/or turned into a zombie.
