Russ was a particularly vicious vampire living in Los Angeles.
- "You'll get your turn."
- ―Russ to Cordelia[src]
Russ was a dangerous, strong vampire and the leader of a pack that came face to face against Angel and Allen Francis Doyle when the two tried to save a young man that was being tortured. Russ was the only one who escaped, following Doyle to the outside of the Angel Investigations offices. He tried to attack Cordelia Chase, whose date, Pierce, drove away in terror. As Russ was about to bite Cordelia, he was shot in the heart with a crossbow by Doyle.
