Name: Sergei Brolosk [The Bear]
Classification: Retired Spetsnaz, Former Soviet Armed Forces
- Heavy Weapons - Sergei is an expert when it comes to heavy weaponry. He's had his hands on rocket launchers, machine guns, and even flamethrowers. His large size makes him perfect for larger weapons, and he's capitalized on such since he was a teenager first starting out in the Spetsnaz. If it shoots big bullets or explosives, he's played with it enough to take it apart and put it together.
- Demolitions - As an extension of his heavy weapons training, Sergei found destroying things to be fun, and thus practiced in it. From small demolition jobs (i.e. a wall) to the large ones (i.e. bringing down the base attached to the wall) and even the precision jobs (destroy the base without the wall), Sergei can get the job done. With spectacular results.
- Vehicles - Of course anyone can drive a troop transport, but Sergei has taken it upon himself to learn how to drive/pilot nearly any conceivable vehicle. He's an amazing driver, a skilled helicopter pilot, and even does tricks in jets. Of course, his disposition and personality affect his skills in this department, but if he's sober and serious, he's one of the best in the business. Just be careful giving him armed helicopters.
- Some of Sergei's minor skills include hand-to-hand combat, rifle combat, survival, high alcohol tolerance, tolerance to pain, and interrogation. His size and stature also serve intimidation and practical assistance to his skills and specialties.
Bio: Sergei Brolosk was born in the Soviet Union to a poor farming family. His father was a drunk and his mother was too occupied with six other children to pay attention to Sergei. His desire for attention eventually led to him running away at thirteen, and consequently joining the Soviet Army. His aptitude during training got him noticed by the Spetsnaz, whom had convinced Sergei to join their ranks after he served four years in the standard army. Although he hadn't seen any action in the Soviet Army, joining the Spetsnaz was an awakening. Pushed to his limits, and beyond, Sergei managed to not only survive in the Spetsnaz forces, but thrive. Special operations in the buffer zones over a span of two decades made him a legend amongst the Soviet Union. However, with the collapse of the USSR, Sergei's time in the Spetsnaz became limited. Already aged, the change in the political landscape caused a change in management. Sergei had been known for his high-profile missions, and was even a public figure in his thirties. The new country didn't like this. After a sabotaged op, where Sergei accidentally caused civilian casualties in Georgia, he was forced to either retire his position or face a court martial. Of course, Sergei retired from the Spetsnaz forces, and his fame declined quickly thereafter. The following years (especially at the turn of the century), Sergei had declined himself, stealing away from society and losing his health.
In 2010, Sergei hit the news again. A much heavier Sergei than he was remembered for had gotten drunk and so happened to wander into a military base. In his intoxicated state, he managed to disable two guards and hijack a tank, before having a joyride through the countryside. Though he was eventually caught and the tank was returned, it served as a reminder to Russian leaders how dangerous ex-Soviet commandos could be. After this event, Sergei was forced into an old gulag in Siberia, alongside others like him (former Soviet). After a year of detention there, an escape was mounted, and the prisoners took over the gulag. It was unlikely that Sergei planned it or even spearheaded the escape, but once again, he proved age didn't mean much to him. He did, however, steal the only helicopter there and leave his comrades to fend for themselves when military reinforcements arrived to retake the prison. Sergei thought he was off the grid, but it seemed that the CIA kept better track of him than Russia did. Though Sergei resented America, the promise of money and safety made him set aside the differences, to a degree. At this point in his life, Sergei was just some ex-military drunk who gained too much weight. Once the CIA enlisted him in this team of operatives, Sergei began to get into shape. Though he isn't The Bear he once was, he's still a big guy and fit enough to make it. Though, his drunkard personality still needs adjusting, Sergei is currently trying to tone his drinking down. Prone to being obnoxious and ignorant, he's quite a character. And of course, if anyone knows what's good for them, don't ask him about the Spetsnaz. Like any old man, he's got stories...
