They are the next evolutionary leap of mankind, a generation of humans born with paranormal abilities - the Tomorrow People. Stephen Jameson stands at the crossroads between the world we know and the shifting world of the future.
Russell Kwon is the team's "bad boy", whose specialty is Telekinesis. He is the third-in-command of The Tomorrow People.
Russell is the voice of reason among The Tomorrow People. His powers are not as strong as the rest but his brain is among the best. His goal is to convert Stephen from Ultra to The Tomorrow People.
Russell, a young man who abuses his superpowers by reading girls’ thoughts, stealing valuable items such as cars, and generally having a good time. Russell grew up in a Korean-American family, with a strict father and a timid mother. His father was very hard on him, often criticizing him much too harshly, especially on his piano skills. Russell did whatever he could to please his father, but it never seemed to be good enough. Russell eventually began using his newly discovered abilities to cheat his way through gambling. This got him into trouble, and the men he was gambling with came after him and threatened to kill him. Russell's father defended and hid him, in which cost him his hand getting crushed violently with a hammer. In Sorry For Your Loss, it was revealed that his father died of a heart attack.
Russell is another member of the Tomorrow People. He fled his strict, overbearing Korean father and a prospective career as a prodigy concert pianist to become a petty thief. Later after cheating at various casinos he gained a partner in crime "Talia" who he turned in after she stole his money to begin a life of super heroism. How he first came in contact with the Lair is unknown but he is John's best friend.
Russel is shown to be a caring and amusing guy, and knows when it's the right thing to do. In All Tomorrow's Parties, he is shown to be extremely caring when Irene was critically wounded from a gunshot from an Ultra ambush, and also getting extremely angry at Kurt when he finds out that he was responsible for being ambushed. He is also shown to be a free spirit that won't miss an opportunity for a good time. Throughout the episodes, Russell cracks a joke here and there being a very silly person.
