 Personal History:
Born in Moscow in the waning years of the Soviet Union, Mikhail had a difficult time growing up, trying to raise his younger siblings in spite of his dispondent mother and abusive father. One of his teachers, a retired naval officer, took notice and began to entice Mikhail with the prospect of a better life in the Russian Navy. With his siblings either turning to crime or running away, Mikhail applied himself to gaining a slot in the Naval Corps at the St. Petersburg Naval Institute. As soon as he was accepted, he broke all ties with his family.

Mikhail became an officer within the Black Sea Fleet's Naval Infantry arm, serving with their reconnaissance battalion. Shortly after joining, he was deployed in Russia's conflict with Georgia, getting a small taste of combat. He opted not to volunteer for operations outside of guarding his home base during the Ukranian Civil War, but was deployed to Syria in 2015. His skill and courage under fire in various battles across Syria gained him the notice of the Federal Security Service's elite Vympel Group, gaining him an invitation to join their ranks. He accepted the opportunity and has since been activated as a commando in FSB.
