- "I remember everything!"
- ―Felix Freeman
Felix Freeman is the younger brother of Half-Life's protagonist Gordon Freeman, and is the protagonist of the Mind series Felix's Mind. In an alternative reality to the Half-Life 2 games and its episodes, Felix is mistaken by the G-Man for Gordon Freeman due to their uncanny resemblance, and pulls him out of stasis and Felix fills in for Gordon Freeman's shoes during the events of the Half-Life 2 games. The character is created and voiced by Curtis Trudeau-Brown.
Events Pre-Felix's MindEdit
Felix is the younger brother of Gordon Freeman. Gordon got Felix a job at the Black Mesa Research Facility. During the Black Mesa Incident where a dimensional rift caused alien creatures to attack the facility, Felix battled his way through the facility, also fighting off marines sent to cover up the incident. Felix was then approached by the mysterious G-Man, and was told that he was impressed with his sheer will power to survive and stated he had big plans for the future and wanted Felix to be a part of them. Felix, similar to Gordon, was placed into stasis.
20 years into the future, Felix was accidentally mistaken for his brother Gordon and pulled out of stasis by the G-Man. He awakens on a train on route to City 17 and discovers the earth is in control by a "Universal Union" known as the Combine. Much of Felix's memory is gone and he has no recollection. He then meets up with some old Black Mesa colleagues such as Isaac Kleiner, Eli Vance and Barney Calhoun. He also meets up with Eli's daughter, Alyx, who he mistakes for a girl called Shonnie. Apart from Barney, everyone mistakes him for his brother Gordon, but he decides not to disclose his real identity in fear of being cast out.
He battles through the events of Half-Life 2 like Gordon Freeman would of done, up until the finale where he prevents Breen from escaping earth by destroying his teleporter. Felix is placed back into stasis by G-Man who seems to still be oblivious to his real identity.
Events of Season 1Edit
Felix is taken away from the G-Man by the vortigaunts, and awakens nearby the unstable citadel. He is discovered by Alyx and her robot D0G, but he doesn't remember who she is or what his identity is. While Alyx makes contact with her father and Isaac Kleiner, Felix tries to jog his memory but sees a load of different numbers and has brief flashbacks, something he lapses into now and again.
Escape from City 17 & Season 2Edit
Felix and Alyx allow Barney to escape first before following on behind him. The Citadel explodes and they barely escape in time, but the explosion causes their train to crash. Barely surviving the train crash, Felix finally remembers the truth just as this happens. He reunites with Alyx and after encountering a portal storm over what's left of the Citadel, makes his way to an underground mine with her in the hopes that it will lead them back on the road to White Forest.
Though it can no longer be verified, it is reported that Felix is fatally wounded by a sniper in Episode 14.
Felix's Mind Forever Edit
Felix travels to a cliff along the coast and momentarily considers suicide but reasons that even if he could bring himself to do it, the impact of hitting the sand would leave him to die slowly and painfully rather than kill him instantly. On the way down to the beach (and then across the beach as he makes his way to the Vortigaunt camp) he encounters Laszlo and Sandy (and berates them on their apparent lack of forethought), thinks happily about how many people he's killed, complains about physics puzzles, makes friends with a wooden plank, considers having intercourse with Vortigaunts and Antlions, discovers Atheism, and shows respect for Architects. He is then ambushed by an Antlion Guard and two regular Antlions and he engages them in combat.
Felix Freeman, whilst milder-mannered than his brother in several respects, is much more vulgar, openly talking about masturbation and contemplating sex with not only a variety of females, but also various alien species (including but not limited to Vortigaunts and Antlions). He is the only openly Atheistic character in all the Mind series but also seems to veer into Pantheism during the course of the series, wondering if the events unfolding are punishment for previous misdemeanors. He also seems to dislike Alyx much less than Gordon, possibly even to the point of indifference.
