    ☣ The Story ☣
    On a snowy winter day, in a country tipping towards civil war, a mercenary finds a young girl fleeing from the government.

    Boris Aristanovich has never had much of an opinion on the political tensions that permeate his country. He gets paid to fight the tsar's quiet war against the rebels, and that's all he cares about. That is until he finds Nadezha Orlova, the daughter of the rebels' missing leader, hiding in his truck. Nadezhda offers Boris a job: bring her to the hopeful safe-haven of Vostok, and be paid up front. A good job – except for the part where it would put him up against the men of a god-like emperor. But Nadezhda is just a small girl with no voice and more magic than anyone knows what to do with, and Boris finds himself caring for her more and more. And when Vostok proves itself more traitorous than they had hoped, Boris goes on the run with his new adopted daughter, into a future fraught with uncertainty.

    ☣ Mercenary's Honour ☣
    Boris is one of the main characters of my short story, "Mercenary's Honour." His parents, a labourer and a carpet-weaver, were immigrants and neither they nor he ever really saw their new country as their home. With only the minimum requirement of education, no magic, and a limited number of job options, he became a mercenary - an occupation always in demand. Living out of a camper-truck with a surprisingly large collection of weapons, he managed it well. That is, until after a battle against a rebel faction, he returns to his truck to find a young girl hiding in his closet and pursuers hot on her trail. In a split second, he makes a choice: instead of handing her over, he puts his own life on the line to keep her safe.

    Boris is Nadya's guardian and adoptive parent, a mutual decision they came to after the realisation that Nadya had no family to return to. While he has no magic of his own, he is extremely supportive of her studies, even when he doesn't understand them. To support the both of them, he works primarily as a construction worker, only returning to his former work as a mercenary when it's required of him. He and Nadya pretend blood relation, aided by the fact that Boris very quickly learned her unique form of sign language. If people question it, they keep it to themselves. Boris' natural tendency to stick to himself and his gruff, straightforward personality also help keep people at a distance.
