This scientist worked at Hawkins National Laboratory, and evidently held an esteemed position, operating a control booth along with Dr Martin Brenner and another scientist while Eleven was placed in a sensory deprivation tank. Eleven had been ordered to make psychic contact with a mysterious creature, though upon this happening, chaos ensued in the tank room. The three scientists watched in both awe and horror as a gateway to another dimension cracked open in the wall and the exposed technicians fled for their lives.
The scientist deserted the tank room soon after and sprinted through the corridors of the laboratory's underground complex alone in an attempt to escape the building. He frantically pushed at the buttons for an elevator and appeared relieved when the doors opened. On entering, he nervously waited for the doors to close. Safe at last, it seemed, the scientist noticed strange sound emitting from above. After slowly raising his eyes to the ceiling, he was snatched by the Monster and dragged up as the doors closed, presumably being killed.
