Biography

Vlad was born in Russia in 1967. Little is known about his childhood, except that he has a sister. At some point in the late 1980's, he met Dimitri Rascalov and Mikhail Faustin, and affiliated himself with them. In the late 1990's, he along with Faustin and Dimitri moved to Liberty City, located in the United States. He then purchased and began operating at Comrades Bar, located in the Hove Beach area, where he regularly held meetings with his associates. During his time in Liberty City, he became a high-ranking member and worked as the Mafia's debt collector. In 2002, Vlad was arrested for public lewdness. He was then arrested for sexual assault in 2003, and then arrested for extortion in 2004. In 2005, Vlad met Roman Bellic who was in a large amount of debt from gambling. Roman borrowed some money from Vlad, but he was unable to pay him back for a while. Roman's girlfriend, Mallorie Bardas, began sleeping with Vlad in order to protect Roman from getting hurt for being unable to pay said debt. Vlad and his men protected Roman from 2 Albanian thugs named Bledar Morina and Dardan Petrela, who Roman also owed money to. At some unknown point, Vlad started using the drug cocaine, developing an addiction to it.

Storyline

Encounter

In 2008, Vlad met Roman's cousin, Niko Bellic, and forced him to work for him in order to pay off Roman's debts. Vlad's work was, taking protection from a Chinese shop worker, and later from Muscovski, a laundromat owner. Vlad also told Niko to steal a Blista Compact from a man that didn't pay Mikhail. Vlad's last mission for Niko was to kill Ivan, who angered Mikhail. Niko can either kill or spare Ivan, the latter option making him appear in a random encounter later on. Niko called Vlad about the mission and Vlad revealed to Niko that he has an affair with Mallorie, making Niko very angry and threatens him that he will break him if he says that to his face.

Death

After Niko learns that Vlad has been having an affair with Mallorie behind Roman's back, Niko confronts Vlad at Comrades Bar. After a brief chase through the neighborhood, Niko shoots Vlad in the left eye under the Algonquin Bridge before tossing his corpse into the Humboldt River, ignoring the fact that his boss, Mikhail Faustin, will certainly track down the man responsible for his murder. Mikhail later admits that Vlad was an idiot, and the only reason he was still been employed in his organization was that Mikhail had sexual intercourse with Vlad's sister. Since Vlad has not been found after being killed, the LCPD database lists him as "missing".
