A hard-line former agent for the Russian intelligence agency VORON, Kestrel – real name Mikhail Andreyevitch Loskov – went freelance following his rescue by Fourth Echelon. Originally trained for counterinsurgency work, he transferred to VORON following an ambush. After being betrayed by his own agency, he struck out on his own, but when the offer came to join [CLASSIFIED], he decided to sign up. Loskov is an old-school door kicker, a man of few words and many bullets. His motivations for joining [CLASSIFIED] are complex – maybe he’s using the group to get closer to his personal targets, or maybe he’s just trying to prevent others from getting treated the way he was – but what remains clear is his consummate professionalism. As for working with criminals, he doesn’t care. He’s been on the “wrong” side of the line before and knows that sometimes, it’s just a matter of perspective.
