Ivan is a gentle giant who was born and raised in a little town in Russia. His grandfather was a counter-revolutionary who was killed in action. His grandmother and her children were taken to a gulag in North Siberia afterwards, but were only held prisoners there for three months. Russia was a dangerous place for a while, until the era of Stalin came to an end and so did the war, luckily in time for Ivan to grow up like a normal kid with plenty of stories to hear about his family.
He was always a big kid and he found happiness and pleasure and taking care of his family, but things were always the same and he started feeling like their was something more for him. He wasn’t the brightest in school and had a hard time making friends because people would rather pick on him. With the bullying Ivan received, he became angered a lot and that made him dangerous, but he did a fair job at controlling his temper.
Things simply got to bad in Russia for Ivan, and he made the decision to move to America, a country of what he had heard great things about, on his 24th birthday. Upon arriving there, however, he immediately felt like an outsider again and wondered if this was the right choice. Because of his less than average education, he had a hard time getting a job, so he pretty much traveled around the whole country taking small jobs, enough to get him by.
Many years later, fate seemed to have him stumble across a doctor from Germany having the same troubles as him. They became very close friends and went on a job hunt together, where they were then discovered by famous band manager Raoul.
Ivan got a job as Mann Co.llision’s top security guard and finally it was something that he could really use his talents in and perform well. He was really happy to have new friends and a job he loved.
Ivan is a heavy vodka drinker and has a tendency to burst out is Russian singing a lot, but he always brightens the room with his presence. Ivan collects winter hats and loves winter. He’s also quite the prankster, which gets him in trouble with the manager a lot.
