Character History

Graphic Novel:Comrades, Part 1

The Russian is a thief, murderer, and con artist, but thanks to his ability, police are unable to arrest him. This has led the Company to believe he is the patriarch of a criminal family. Noah, Ivan, and Claude chase the Russian through a Moscow subway station, and onto a train. They eventually subdue him, but as Noah prepares to shoot him, he transforms into a young boy.

Graphic Novel:Comrades, Part 2

Noah's hesitation to pull the trigger allows the Russian to escape. Noah, Ivan, and Claude search for him in small market, where Ivan eventually spots him and calls out to the others. The Russian uses his ability to shift from a young boy to a physically fit man and attacks Ivan with a knife. Before he can kill the agent, however, he is shot and killed by Noah.

Evolved Human Abilities

The Russian had the ability to change his own age. He had used this ability to change his apparent age from that of an old man to a young man. He seemed to be able to utilize the skills he had as a young man, such as strength and knife handling. He was also capable of shifting his age to that of a young boy, so as to try preventing Noah from killing him. He has been seen with at least four known ages, previously thought to be two siblings (a teenager and a younger child), their father, and their grandfather.
