— Russell about the cooked skitter.
Russell was a civilian in the 2nd Massachusetts Militia Regiment.
After several days without food, the 2nd Mass all begin to starve. John Pope and Sara decide to cook a skitter leg, to see if it is edible. Russell walks up to it with his knife and carves a piece off, however Pope advises him not to, as they have yet to test it on a cat. Russell doesn't care, and eats a piece, and jokingly pretends that it is effecting him. Russell begins to carve another piece, and begins to choke, however the others think he is joking again. Russell begins to spit up, before blood begins to pour out of his mouth, and his jaw eventually falls like acid is eating away from the inside of his mouth, from the effects of the skitter. After, they move Russell's body away.
