The Russie family was one of the most important human families allied to the Race during and after the Race Invasion of Tosev 3.

Chaim Russie[]

Dr. Chaim Russie was the son of Dr. Reuven Russie and his wife Deborah Radofsky. Chaim was tragically killed in an Arab terrorist bombing in Jerusalem. Whether the bomb was meant for the Lizards or the Jews was unknown.

News of Chaim's death belatedly reached the Admiral Peary in 2031. Melanie Blanchard, an acquaintance of Chaim's father, was saddened to learn of Chaim's death. She also hoped that Reuven had not lived to see his son's death.[1]

Esther and Judith Russie[]

Esther and Judith Russie (b. 1950) were the twin daughters of Moishe and Rivka Russie. Their parents were incensed by them since they were born after the death of Sarah Russie, who died in the family's imprisonment in the Warsaw Ghetto. They looked so much alike that their own family could not tell who was who, a thing their mischievous behavior made much use of.

The twins always tried to antagonize their brother Reuven Russie and his girlfriend Jane Archibald, whom they admired as "more finished" than them.[2]

Saul Goldfarb[]

Saul Goldfarb was David Goldfarb's father. Saul and his wife had fled Poland prior to World War II. He had urged his family to do the same in 1938, but no one else did.[6]

Isaac and Leah Kaplan[]

Isaac and Leah Kaplan were German Jews who managed to escape to England in 1937, with their 14-year-old daughter Naomi. In 1944, they were pleased when their daughter became attached to David Goldfarb, a clever radio operator with an honorable war record.[7]

Joseph Radofsky[]

Joseph Radofsky, a lathe operator in Jerusalem, was the husband of Deborah. He was killed in a riot not long after the birth of his daughter Miriam in the 1960s.

In 1965, she and her toddler daughter Miriam became patients of Dr. Reuven Russie, who had just broken up with Dr. Jane Archibald. One thing led to another, and Deborah and Reuven were married in 1966. They had two sons, Chaim and the young doctor.

Miriam Radofsky[]

Miriam Radofsky (b. c. 1963) was the daughter[8] of Deborah Radofsky. Miriam's father Joseph was killed in a riot shortly after her birth, and her mother later married Dr. Reuven Russie. Miriam had two younger half brothers, Chaim Russie and young Dr. Russie.
