Russell met the wild Orc Uro while adventuring in the forests of Skyrim. Uro speaks very little of any language and usually just lets his huge hands do the talking (by which I mean crushing), so when the little human came stumbling into his domain, his first instinct was to pulverise him. Rather than fleeing in terror, however, Russell was so mesmerised by the giant beast of an Orc stood before him, he simply froze and fell in love.
Uro was rather impressed by the little man's courage so rather than taking Russell's life, he instead took his hand (as well as his clothes).
Now Russell has himself a mighty guardian to watch over him and occasionally pump him full of hot Orc seed and Uro has a fun little chew toy.
