Volga is the lone female on the Oktober Guard team, and her team-mates often make the mistake of underestimating her skills. So have her adversaries. This has proven to be highly detrimental to the forces of Cobra and others that have challenged the Oktober Guard. Volga is a skilled tactician, second only to Colonel Brekhov himself, a world-class sniper, and a helicopter pilot of considerable talent. Her personality is somewhat of a mystery. She has surprising sense of humor, but in the midst of a conflict, is all business. Her deepest commitment is to the team. She doesn´t care if she has to sneak or fly to the battlefield, or stand on ridge away from it with a long-range weapon, as long as she does her part.
From Colonel Brekhov´s Files: “I´m newer sure what to make of Volga. I´ve never liked the idea of women in combat in the first place. If it had been up to me, Volga would fly us to the mission and then leave. But how do you tell someone not to fight who´s so good at it?”
