That's a big Ursa!
—Russel, fleeing from an Ursa

RWBYEdit

Beacon Academy InitiationEdit

Russel is first seen readying himself to go into the Emerald Forest for the Academy Initiation and the formation of teams. When Professor Ozpin finishes his explanations, the platforms each new student is on spring up and thrust them over and into the Forest.

Russel is not seen until the end of the Initiation, where he is standing beside Cardin Winchester, Dove Bronzewing, and Sky Lark in front of Ozpin on the auditorium stage. Ozpin announces that they retrieved the Black Bishop pieces, and would be known as Team CRDL, led by Cardin.

Start of ClassesEdit

As Jaune Arc is being asked by his friends to admit his bullying problems during lunch, he looks over and sees Russel and the rest of CRDL bullying the Faunus student Velvet Scarlatina. When Cardin is forcibly pulling on her rabbit ears to prove that they're real, Russel proclaims that she's a freak before she is let go and runs away with her face covered.

Russel is seen with his team in the Forever Fall forest. Shortly after Jaune collects the jars of red sap, he and the rest of his team listen to Cardin's plan to have Jaune throw the jar of sap at Pyrrha Nikos, in order for Cardin to get payback. When Cardin mentions that Jaune got the Rapier Wasps that are going to be released on Pyrrha, Russel gives Jaune a friendly pat on the back. However, when Jaune refuses and throws the jar at Cardin he watches in shock and then seems pleased as Cardin prepares to punish Jaune for his defiance.

Russel is later seen watching Cardin beat up Jaune. However, when an Ursa Major appears he abandons Cardin, noting the size of the Grimm. When he runs into Yang Xiao Long, she grabs him and gets him to tell her about the Ursa. He then promptly breaks away from her grip and continues fleeing.
