From Bob Murch's Pulp Heroes and Personalities come a pair of fur-hatted, long-coated, jack-booted operatives as cold as the Novosibirsk winter. Both are from the set "Count Casimir's Trans-Siberian Renegades," and indeed the lady in blue looks like a White Russian noble in exile. (I don't know whether falconry is counterrevolutionary and bourgeois, but it seems like it might be?) A refined and educated type, with an icy-cruel streak. She does not look impressed at what the Soviets and a couple of World Wars have done with the place. The other fella is a perfect Heavy type, the sort to threaten from dark alleys, administer beatings, vanish one into the gulags, or simply deliver a nine-gram pension. As long as a system or hierarchy is brutal and repressive, he's happy to serve it, regardless of ideology. Not much for words; if he has a rich inner life, he does his best to conceal it. Reading is dangerous, and thinking doubly so, and expressing your thoughts worst of of all, and they are dangerous because they draw the attention of people like him. Scarily good at chess, though.
