Sławoj Szechenyi was born in a small village near the Czech border in Poland. His father was a Polish Army officer, like his grandfather before him, who had fought the Nazis in the Great Patriotic War. Slawoj's mother was a local Party office secreatery, and the family lived relatively comfortably in what could be considered upper middle class by Polish standards. Thusly Slawoj was granted a good education and upbringing, joining the local Party youth at age 12 before his father, a liaison with Red Army forces, moved the family to Gdansk. In Gdansk the situation with Solidarność was coming to a head. Earlier in the decade the Independent Self-governing Labour Union of Poland (Solidarity) had striked against the government and the mining industry. The result was nothing less than the collapse of the Polish military commissariat in 1989, and the establishment of free elections the year following.
Slawoj, after the fall of the Polish socialist government, moved with his father to Russia where Slawoj finished his lower grade schooling in a military college, finishing with above-average marks. It was around this time that Slawoj's father passed away, and the now young man had to rely on his self to forge his own path in life. Slawoj stood out, though, in a downsizing Russian army for at age 18 he was multilingual - Czech, Polish, and Russian, all fluently - and was selected to take an English course. He excelled, learning the language and then the culture. He was made a Russian citizen the same year after completing a (voluntary) conscription in the Russian Ground Forces, where he worked with radio communication equipment. After his service, he completed his education.
After graduating with a degree in international relations Slawoj worked for the Russian Foreign Ministry as a cultural attache in the American Embassy. While his work was not particularly noteworthy, he was placed on a U.S. shortlist for possible Russian spies within the country. It is not known when officially Slawoj began working for the FSB, but before the Americans could act on their intelligence Slwaoj returned to Russia, where he worked an office job in the FSB building in Moscow.
Slawoj faded somewhat into obscurity throughout the next few years, resurfacing in South Ossetia on the eve of the Russian-Georgian Four Days' War of 2008. In 2014, he was among those SVR agents placed in the Crimea to oversee the secession and following annexation of the peninsula from Ukrainian control. The outbreak in 2014 meant that, for the most part, foreign intelligence services like the CIA and Mi5 lost track of Slawoj's whereabouts, but he was suspected to be involved in the destruction of the rebellious Sochi Government in 2018. In 2019, he was confirmed by CIA to be present in Chernarus, though in an unknown capacity.
