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, and Alyx Vance's father.[1]

He was to play a compromised and dangerous role protecting the Air Exchange, while secretly organizing Resistance fighters.[1]

During the City 17 uprising after the Air Exchange destruction, Captain Vance also had 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 Eli Maxwell and Captain Vance were merged to become Eli Vance, Captain Vance's face was recycled into the Citizen Male 08 (still named Vance) and a hostage in Counter-Strike: Source. Odessa Cubbage and Barney Calhoun replace his role as a military leader.[1][2]
