To some, he's the savior of humanity: the One Free Man who will lead us to victory against our alien oppressors. To the Black Mesa Science Team, he's Dr. Freeman: MIT graduate, research scientist, handy with a crowbar in a pinch.

When Alyx Vance gazes into Gordon Freeman's eyes and gives him that special look (you know the one), you know it's meant for you. Because you are Gordon. We all are.
