Reuven Russie (1937-2015[1]) was a Polish Jew and the son of Moishe and Rivka Russie. After he and his parents were liberated from the Warsaw Ghetto by the Race in 1942, they migrated to Lodz, London and Jerusalem. As a young adult, he attended Russie Medical College, a Race Medical School in Jerusalem dedicated to his father. He dated Jane Archibald, a fellow medical student while there. He dropped out when the Race instituted worship of the Race's Emperors as a prerequisite for continued study. Archibald left Palestine in favor of Lizard-free Canada.

Almost all of his early childhood was dogged by war, from Warsaw to Palestine. Indeed, he had become used to air-raids and fighting, as his father reflected. He briefly became acquainted with Melanie Blanchard.

Reuven would later married Deborah Radofsky and sired two sons, and lived a happy life.

The crew of the Admiral Peary believed that Reuven had died sometime prior to 2021, but were not certain of this.
