LEONID BUKOVSKY (46)
Queen Mab’s weapon master, Russian ex‐Spetznaz, a human mountain; his nickname is Zangief (because he vaguely resembles the Street Fighter‐character of the same name).
While Bukovsky is friendly at first sight, he has a personal history scary enough to ensure that anyone who have lived through and survived it is a man not to be fucked with. He was forced to become a master of killing.
During the Decade of Famine (2092-2102), a global disaster caused by the depletion of most of Earth’s food supplies (one of the reasons GTD was founded to mend the situation, and it did took care of it the best it could), tens of thousands resorted to cannibalism. The Russian state’s solution was simple, but effective, as usual: they threw them into Siberian concentration camps. Young Bukovsky, on the brink of starvation, suddenly got a new job: he became a guard at one of these camps.
The things he saw, he never talks about. They guarded monsters and to do a proper job, the guards themselves had to become monsters.
One night a riot broke out at the camp. The prisoners overran the guards and many of them were shred to pieces and eaten. Hundreds of fugitive cannibals were spread all over Siberia, and Bukovsky was one of the specialists assigned to hunt them down.
He did this for 8 long years: walking the mountain paths and the endless fields of Mother Russia, hunting and killing: and while he did that, he learned how to use every man made weapon and trap imaginable.
He never used a map, he just went where the wind called him. This is why he was so surprised when he walked into the harbour town of Vladivostok, once the proud home of the Russian Navy and the gate to the now dwindling ocean. There, in one of the bars (he still remembers its name: Blednij Medwed – The Pale Bear) he met Captain Kimura, who invited him into a better life.
He took the chance.
