Yevgeny Orlov was a general and a Loyalist Russian from Goo'iiki Earth and father of Ilona Orlova from Vuy'ti Earth. Born during the Soviet collapse, Orlov lived a troubled childhood in a changing country. With his parents struggling against poverty, he spent what little free time he had in patriotic youth clubs, learning to follow orders and operate rifles at a young age. This alone kept him from slipping into crime, changing his life for the better. As a result, a military career became the most obvious choice which Orlov quickly started to pursue once he reached the right age. His vigour, determination and sense of duty opened his way into Russia's famed airborne troops and later the special forces in the Multiversal Timeline.
