Matt (last name not decided yet), the main character who was a rebel leader before being captured by the Combine, was put on a train outbound from Nova Prospekt by Alyx shortly before Gordon meets up with Alyx. He is on the train heading away from Nova Prospekt when it explodes and causes his train to crash.
