Beard 1

He trims and waxes his beard, but no one's looking at his face.


His actual name is Dmitri Blazhenov. He is one of the twin bodyguards who serve Iain. He spends his free time body building and dancing, especially ballet. He is heavily pierced and tattoed and wears whatever Iain puts on him.

His preferred weapon is his body. He is only slightly modified, with steel galvanized bones in his fists and feet and across his forehead.

Dmitri is the more likely of the two to speak, and he is very affectionate with Iain and his brother, when either permit.

The twins were child slaves of the russian mob. They were used as body slaves, and then as body guards as well, when they grew to be such brutes. In particular they were sold and traded among the mob wives, who permitted them amusements such as learning coding and ballet. A jealous husband proved their undoing, selling them under his wife’s nose to a trade ship, one of the armored vessels to carry robots from Japan to Russia and Glasgow and raw supplies back. The twins hated life on the ship, other than when they got to fight pirates. They missed culture, cities, and everything they’d known as slaves of nobility, so they jumped ship at the first port they came to, which was Glasgow. They hid, terrified, in the bracken wilds above the city until they saw the ship leave port. Then they went back into town and reinvented themselves as dancers at the Skin Clubs. Iain saw them there and hired them. They adore him for it.

Since moving to Glasgow, their English has improved, but they don’t let on.
