The Elevator Scientist worked in Hawkins National Laboratory and was one of the first victims of the Monster.


This scientist worked at Hawkins National Laboratory. He operated a control booth along with Dr Martin Brenner and another unnamed scientist while Eleven was placed in a sensory deprivation tank. Eleven had been ordered to make psychic contact with a mysterious creature; when contact was made 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.

This scientist ran from the tank room and through the corridors of the laboratory's underground complex. He frantically pushed at the buttons for an elevator. When the doors opened, he appeared relieved, entering. As he nervously waited for the doors to close, a strange sound was heard above him. The Monster grabbed him from above as the doors closed, killing him.
