In this feature we're going to look at one of the characters for the Kurganova Shock Troops...
THE KURGANOVA SHOCK TROOPS (KST)
Led by the ultra-powerful Kurganov family, the Kurganova Shock Troops are a highly organized and disciplined army with underlying Eastern European themes. They also benefit from the support of strong cyber-enhanced paganic magic. This, among other things, allows them to 'waken' the 'were' gene that can transform some members of the Kurganova army into giant were-wolves or were-bears.
Svetlana, the Light of Freedom
The Kurganovas are faced with a different quandary. While they managed to survive only through harsh discipline and cold hard technology, they have repressed their culture stemming from a very ancient spirit of untamed wildness feeding on paganism, animal instinct, and individualism.
Svetlana is an embodiment of these forces, the leader of an ever-growing number of resistants who think that it is now time to embrace their animal instinct, their personal initiative, and the ancient pagan mysteries that use to be the foundation of their culture. For Svetlana, it is the only way for the Kurganovas to defeat their opponents once and for all and to find peace.
Svetlana quietly contributes to the battles that the Kurganova Shock Troops engage in, acting as an infiltrator and an occasional hitwoman. In her hand, she holds an ancient Kurganova fallen flag that she uses to rally all the Kurganovas who have lost faith or fled from the battlefield.
