Mishka Andreyushkin - 1956

Basic Info:

Player: Jabonicus

Position: Bruiser/Heavy Lifting.

Demeanor: On the outside Mishka is not someone with a soft appearance. Holding intimidating stature and height, along with his bald head and scruffy beard on a face that isn't so pleasant to look at, it would be easy to take Mishka as a brute of a man. Paired with a steady Russian accent, it would be easy to make assumptions about him.

Nature: Mishka speaks slowly, and obviously puts a lot of work into articulating his words. With his slower speech, it's apparent that he puts a good deal of thought into what he says, as well as what he does. While he's no gentle giant, he seems to act on neutral grounds most of the time.

Description: Standing at 6'3 (1.9 m) and with broad, large shoulders, Mishka is naturally a very large man. With an appropriate amount of muscle, is body is quite toned. His face isn't pretty- Nor is it ugly. His head is bald, though he holds a scruffy goatee. His eyes are a dull green, and he speaks with a consistent accent. Otherwise his body is as you would expect it to be. Relatively free from scars or other deformities.

  • U strakha glaza veliki.: 4. 'Fear has large eyes.' Mishka does not seem like the kind type, and he knows enough about people to use that to his advantage. He knows how to be intimidating- But it works best if the 'victim' is already scared. (+4 to intimidation checks, but only if the target is already visibly afraid.)
  • Vidna ptitsa po polyotu.: 4. 'A bird is known by its flight.' Mishka knows that the surroundings of someone can be a giveaway about the person themselves.

Personal History:

Born in 1927 in the Soviet-Ukrainian city of Kiev, life proved difficult from a young age. Due to the political unrest in Kiev, after having changed hands repeatedly during World War I, Kiev was in a fragile and odd state. Despite being formatted by the Soviet Union to be a place of Industrial progress, portions of the civilian population suffered hunger.

However, due to Mishka's family being Russian migrants and not native Ukrainians, they were given access to rations, which sustained them along with local production. With rising tensions and distrust of Stalin, Mishka's family moved to Western America. Growing up into World War II, Mishka managed to avoid the American draft, instead employing himself into a local bookstore.

The bookstore gig quickly fell apart as World War II went on, and hostilities between the USSR and the USA heated. He was let go by his boss, told that he was a wonderful worker, but he couldn't risk his business' reputation. Coming on hard times, Mishka was approached in a bar, and given an offer.

Bodyguard. The American man was young, confident, and most importantly ran a discreet operation based on terrorizing and profiting off of local gangs. For the most part, the American worked as a broker, dealing drugs, weapons, and most importantly, things that didn't seem right. Years working under the man, he soon pieced together what was off.

What he was dealing were things that simply didn't follow logic. Unusual properties and abilities of items, and rarely people, bought and sold through the dark haired American. That was of course, until 1957. Having arrived at one of the storage warehouses of his boss, it was long after his arrival that numerous heavily armed people stormed the Warehouse. Wearing strange clothing and much more organized than any gang, Mishka initially thought it was the police.

This thought lasted until he was captured and brought to interrogation, where he was asked about the things bought and sold. He saw no point in lying- He was caught, and maybe the truth would give him wiggle room. So he told them everything, the drugs, weapons, and irregularities. They pushed on that- Asking him about the 'anomalies' and what he knew about them.

Weeks of interrogation passed, and eventually he was given a choice- A rather simple one. He be put back on the street, no work, little chance of getting a job, or he use his knowledge and work with the Foundation. Naturally, he chose the Foundation.
