  • Большой медведь: 3. Grigori has trained extensively with hand-to-hand melee combat, and knows 102 ways to kill a man with his ring finger. Unfortunately, he has let these skills go unused for years in favor of less lethal methods. [On the first strike against an unsuspecting target, Grigori gains +3 to Melee: the requirements for knocking them out are reduced by -2 if Grigori is sucessfully sneaking.]
  • Глаза орла: 3 As part of his extensive training, Grigori has become very adept at scouting and, failing that, reacting quickly to ambushes. [+3 to Perception against hidden enemies and if perception is being used to judge who gets to attack first.]
  • Берлинская стена: +3 Grigori won't lose someone he loves… not again. [Thrice per run, when an ally is being targeted by an attack, Grigori can interpose himself between that target and the attacker. This gives the target a +3 bonus to defending against the attack, at the cost of Grigori taking double the amount of damage the target takes.]
  • Угловое животное: 3 When the bell tolls for Grigori, he won't go without a fight. It's the least his father would want. [+3 to PDEF, STR, and MELEE once per run/event when at or below 3 PHealth. Decays by -1 per turn. Does not apply when unconscious.]

Personal History:

Subject XX-06's name was never recorded. His mother had certaintly given him one, but the doctors took him away soon after. His parents had been candidates for the Olympics; running and weightlifting respectively. They did not know their child would be born in a gulag, not until the government came knocking on their doors with warrants and claims of treasonous activities. So they were taken, their names stripped from the record and all traces of them lifted off the face of the earth. Subject XX-06 might as well have been borne from thin air; and for all intents and purposes, he was.

The closest thing he had to a parental figure came in the form of a man whom he only knew as Dr. Malikov; the only doctor who attempt to make conversation with him throughout his non-existent childhood. The doctor, likewise, considered Subject XX-06 as a sort of son. He nicknamed him 'Grigori', after a child he lost long ago.

Then came the experiments, the daily injections, the constant monitoring. Grigori's life was a continuous cycle of being poked and prodded by geneticists and doctors. They told him he was going to be a 'superhero', the perfect soldier who would fight the Union's enemies. He was, of course, oblivious to what this all meant. His musculature matured at the age of 14, and from that point on he was trained, along with others, to be the perfect killing machine.

There was a flaw in the experiment, however. While the genetic treatments could improve their bodies to near physical perfection, their minds had been left to the wayside. Grigori and the other subjects in his program had very little interest in violence, let alone service to the Union. The experiment was not wholly shut down at this discovery; instead, these mistakes were used to make improvements to subsequent generations of soldiers. Grigori and his fellows were denied active field duty and instead used used as training for the next experiments.

Eventually, however, they could not keep up with the newer soldiers. The Soviets decided to cut their losses with the Generation 1 experiments and have them all discretely disposed of. Dr. Malikov greatly objected to these orders, and hatched a plan to have the Gen1s escape their compound.

The plan was executed flawlessly, but required one casualty; Dr. Malikov himself. Grigori and his fellows managed to escape into the wintery Soviet landscape, alone and afraid. They scattered into the night, the sound of barking dogs and distant flashlights quickly fading behind them…

Grigori was discovered 12 days later by some farmers, nearly frozen to death in the snow. It was here he was met by deep cover agents working for the Foundation, who had been given an anonymous tip several months in advance that several soviet experiments would be escaping into the forest surrounding a certain set of coordinates. He was recovered and exfiltrated across the Iron Curtain, into NATO territory, where he was extensively questioned and examined. It was discovered that the methods used to create Grigori were rather crude and had been surpassed by the other experiments the Foundation were aware of, so he yielded no useful scientific information. They did, however, figure he may be more useful in other fields…
