"There's something reliable in Vlad's cruelty to his enemies. I know if I don't piss him off generally speaking I'm going to be on the winning side, and that works well enough for me now, but for how long? He's resourceful, charismatic and charming in his own way but I have a feeling he's hiding something, and for that I don't trust him. Despite that He's useful to me for now, and he knows I am to him, "done is better than perfect," so they say."
"Can't read him, don't know him, can't trust him. Seems like a wildcard, if he was in our deck of cards he'd be the joker, and that's not a good thing. Still, he's resourceful enough and has no hesitation in his decision making. Now if he applied that to becoming a little more stable? I'd imagine he'd be a force to be reckoned with, so I'll keep him at a distance for now."
"Friend of Anya's and Vadim's. Don't know much about her, seems alright."
"Pragmatic, stern and very good with a gun. My brief interactions with Vadim would indicate that he's nothing more than your average slav, definitely more than just a Chernarussian however. Perhaps some Russian blood, doesn't seem overly national like most of the locals. Something about him makes me waver my opinion however, I don't think there's much loyalty in him, It'd be promising to trust a man like him. Simple men are easy to predict but there's something beneath the surface, like a calm volcano, it's discomforting."
"I can smell the rage on this one, it pours from him like a thick fog of anger. Despite that he seems incredibly loyal, reliable but ultimately stubborn. I feel him and I would get along better if Ellie wasn't in the picture, but his only focus is on her it seems, and for that I'm going to keep my cards close to my chest with this one."
"A kind soul, but one capable of a brand of cruelty inherited from Vlad. I don't know how to judge Kathryn, how much of what I have said is relayed to Vlad. Her honesty regarding matters with Lucy were touching, but was that really her? Actions will speak louder than words when weighing this one's intentions.
"Seems like a good man, simple in a complex way. Shame he got mixed up with the others, he could have been one of the good ones."
"Friendly, open minded. Perhaps the best of Vlad's men I've met. There's something a little strange about him, disingenuous. I need to get to know him better."
