Captain Vance, one of the few surviving military leaders of Earth, was to be the leader of the Combine Conscripts while working undercover for the Resistance, playing the dangerous role of protecting the Air Exchange while secretly organizing fighters to overthrow the Combine. He was also Alyx Vance's father.
During the City 17 uprising after the Air Exchange destruction, Captain Vance had his headquarters in an "emergency bunker" near the inner gates of the Citadel's outer wall, where Gordon was to come when Alyx was left alone and hurt after the crash into the Skyscraper.
When the conscripts were scrapped, Vance and Eli Maxwell were merged to become Eli Vance, a resistance scientist. Eli Vance is still Alyx' father.
