Alec Norris is an NPC in The Surge.



Alec Norris Location

  • You will first find Alec in the Operations Base in the Exhibition Floor. He will ask you to look for his daughter and give you the item: Key Card - ID #RD 23941001.
  • You can find his daughter at the top of the building, to get there you must jump through a shattered window and Maddy (Roboter) should be in the Room at the end of the floor with a broken leg.
  • Maddy says that she played Hide&Seek and sends an message to Alex Norric to come and get here.
  • Maddy and Alec Norris can be found in the Servicestation and he asks you if you could find a a new leg for Maddy in order to fix her.
  • You get the leg by killing an enemy which looks similar to Maddy by focusing the leg.
  • Bring the Robotic Leg back to Alex Norris and you will gain Endurance Enhancer v.3
  • Maddy can be found for the second time at the lower level of the OPS in the Nucleus. You can hear her if you walk up to the crates separating Warren and her but by the time you navigate around to her location she will be dead. Looting a Little Girl's Necklace off her corpse and bringing it back to Alec will cause him to question you on the whereabouts of her location. Telling him that she is dead grants you a reward while lying to him (telling him that she is missing) will not give you a reward.
  • If you go to Nucleus after saving Maddy but before bringing back the robotic leg, Alec will be gone, leaving Maddy alone in R&D and stoping the quest progression.

      To find Maddy in the Nucleus (1st of 2 times you need to find her in this area) you need to move OPS to the 2nd level, then return down the stairs and take the shortcut to get to the lower level of OPS. The shortcut previously took you onto the roof of OPS while OPS was on the 1st level. You will find implant 'Auto-aid v.4' and if you look around you will also find Maddy behind some large crates, but you cannot get to her because there are other crates in the way. You can talk to her, but then she 'runs away'.

        Bruh, I wanted to test-swing my new staff a bit after upgrading it and it automatically targeted both Alec and Maddy. And ofc they have like 0 health and just died instantly.

          First Playthrough I killed both of them. Idc tbh lmao.
          They put her in a very bad spot that she will die very easily.

          and the dude I accidentally killed while trying out a weapon lmao. didn't even noticed him there.

            They could have at least signalized her being friendly NPC. Like her talking the moment you open the room would save me so much trouble. I actually managed to kill her 2 times... both times I went in and saw robot lying on the ground w8ing for me to come closer to attack me so I did like any selfrespecting souls player and pressed attack button. By the time first attack hit I already pressed for second one so her finally talking after first hit landed was too late.
            Am I only person that managed to reflexively kill her 2 times in the row and helped her only 3th time?

              There is a bug where he doesn't actually give you the card, even if the new item notification pops out. I managed to get the card by talking again to him and running away instead of saying goodbye.

                Got the leg but forgot to bring it back, much later in the game came to that area again, alex is gone. Found his body with the audiolog. Loaded the game again, he's alive and staring at the screen on his knees near respawn, cannot interact with him. Funny.

                  This quest line is the one standout example of a sidequest trying way too hard to be emotional. The whole game is trying to ape souls way too hard but this jump amps the melodrama to ten: -girl dies in car crash -dad gets divorced because of it -loses his mind and puts her in a robot -robot has the typical child actor overacting "pwetty pwease??" "cute" voice -have to do fetch quests for both the dad and the robot to repair her -lol jk she dies anyways -witness her death -either have to lie to the depressed lunatic dad or tell him the truth -if you choose to not do anything related to this quest he leaves the room and dies immediately anyways There's emotional storytelling and theres trying to pull so many heartstrings at once that it just becomes eye rolling.

                    It's just as heart-snapping as open heart surgery with a chainsaw when you actually complete her quest and she dies before you even reached her.

                    Fuck that father for:

                    1.putting her in a industrial, company manufactured, bulky, tri-wheeled robot (Come on man at least make her mobile with arms and legs so you can at the very least hold her hand so she doesn't run off! hell take some inspirations from Astro-boy!)

                    2. Letting her run off in the first place, I mean for fucks sake it's a Industrial factory full of people who are dicks to each other on a daily basis why in the hell would you bring your daughter to that I don't care if it is Bring your daughter to work day, You don't bring them to a place full of hazards! that's the worst parenting I've ever seen hell pennywise would be a better parent!

                    3. not making a back up drive for her. I mean hell she's already died once (if I remember right its been years since I touched this hellish, emotional rape of a game) so really I know parents don't want to think of their children as replaceable, but in this case you need to think of your daughter as something with a replaceable body! again take some kind of inspiration from Astro-boy!

                    4. You didn't even try to stop her from running off the second time?! last I checked kids are not that stupid to run off and parents aren't that stupid to just go "oh sure go play hide and seek in an industrial complex"!

                    I still haven't gotten past the bit where I saw her die, I just pulled out the disc and its been there in it's case for almost a year now gathering dust sorely because I don't want to tell the father that she is dead and it's all his fault. I'm not a monster, Game, that's a line I just won't cross for any amount of reward

                      For, me, I have the leg for Maddy but when I return in the med bay Maddy is alone, his father is not here...
                      It is because I going to Nucleus between? I searched on labo area and I cannot find Alec :/

                        To those complaining about Maddy, especially Souls players:

                        Just saying, Souls has done this at least 3 times in all the game friend.

                        1. The hollow merchant in the Burge with the katana was a main offender from what I hear.

                        2. Ornifex

                        3. Not as important as the last 2 but the coriander in Ariandel

                        Not to mention unlike these 3, unless it was updated as such Maddy is Red whole other bots of her type are yellow.

                        Just learn to follow the lock-on rule. If you can't lock onto it, it's friendly.

                          ARRRGGGHHH! WHAT THE F***ING HELL !?!?!

                          Why would they make Maddy look like any *****ing normal goddarn ROBOT, just a different color, and make the game autosafe the second I hit her ?
                          She was dead within the first two attacks of a non-abortable combo.

                          ***** that***** !

                          I was like "What the hell, the robot speaks with a girl´s voice - " and BAM, Maddy is history.
                          Thanks for *****ing my quest, autosafe.

                          The Souls games at least have the decency to let NPCs respawn !
                          And if you have permadeath on NPCs don´t *****ing AUTOSAFE the moment a player attacks.

                          Or, what do I know, maybe TELL us that she is a mother*****ing ROBOT ! GODDAMMIT !

                          Sorry for my language, but I am a completionist, and now I can forget that mission till I am in NG+... also, I killed a innocent girl-A.I. Great, just great -.-
                          I think she screamed for her daddy when she died :(

                            I accidentally hit her and her dad while in medbay. I hit them pretty *****ing hard. Game instantly saved so I tried reloading and they're both gone. No dead bodies anywhere, Alec isn't on any stairs with an audiolog, they just straight disappeared.

                              [[[SPOILERS BELOW]]]]

                              I just found her and was like "Oh, it's a robot! I bet it's based on his dead kid or something. I wond-"
                              And then the flamethrower*****I'd ran past came up to the doorway and blasted her while I was listening to her. Sad as hell, man.

                                  I forgot to get a leg and made it to the nucleus. Then I backtracked through the levels and found Maddy in the exhibition floor medbay asking me to bring her daddy back to her :(

                                    I backtracked near the end of the game to give him the leg and Alec is missing, I did not see Maddy in the last few zones but Alec is missing.
