You may kill this character on sight.
Born Yelena Ivanyevna Barsukova, daughter of Ivan and Sonya Barsukova, she grew up in the city of Podolsk, just outside of Moscow. Her father was an employee at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation’s office in Moscow and they lived a comfortable life. She got her schooling at the prestigious, all-girls Russian Defence Ministry’s boarding school, with the hope of becoming a translator for the military in the future.
After graduating she did just that, but only a few weeks into her training she decided to change path completely and instead went on to take a photography class in Moscow. It was supposed to span over a 5 year period but she never ended up graduating – after an incident involving a young man in her class she was dismissed from the school.
Being at a low point and lacking direction she lived life mainly after dark. One such night she happened to meet a woman on the street, and they ended up going for coffee. Turns out her newfound friend was looking for a new assistant and Yelena agreed to move down south to work for her.
