Biography

Early Life

Born in an illustrious "military family" in the capital city of Providenska, Kazimir Ivanovich is a son of Ivan Vaktomirovich Miroslavsky, a naval officer, and Catherine Andreievna Svaskova, a nurse. For most of his life, he lived in his paternal grandfather's house -- Vaktormir Petrovich Miroslavsky was also in the military, having served in the Army until his death in 2006. Despite being a semi-recognizable name in the military, the Miroslavsky has never been ennobled or considered suitable for nobility or knighthood. In his own words, Kazimir Ivanovich talks of his family and lifestyle as "typical middle-class". The family has always been economically comfortable, but its members have to work to effort such stability.

"Military families" in Kozavia are often middle-class to upper-class families who have a long-preserved tradition of sending their sons (or even daughters) to the military. They are not an official thing but certainly has a unique place in the Kozavian and Zitravian cultures. Each family sometimes has its "patriarch" who is in charge of the estate and the wellbeing of his family members. This tradition seems to decline in the new Zitravgrad, largely because of the conscription already sending everyone to a couple of years of service. Miroslavsky family has been associated with the military since the 19th century, thanks to its unbroken line of male patriarchs.

Attending the military academy since he was 13, Miroslavsky was shaped into what was considered an ideal Kozavian officer -- cold, stoic, loyal, yet sophisticated and well-educated -- white-gloved young gentleman ready for duty. However, his university years was interrupted by the start of Zitravian Front (1992-1995) in the Imperialists' War (1985 - 1995). Called into the frontline at the age of 20, the taste of post-modern warfare inflicted heavy psychological scars on many of its participants on all sides and the nuclear nightmare of 19 November 1994 would forever traumatize them. Moreover, Miroslavsky would later hear about the death of his father and the injuries of his grandfather, both of whom were serving in the war as well.

Instead of being referred to simply as the Third Global War, the Imperialists' War (1985 - 1995) has been granted a fancy name that reflected its imperialist nature -- it was a war that stemmed from colonial conflicts which soon escalated into a field of opportunities for colonial powers to settle conflicts, whether old or new. The Kozavian Empire and its dominions only joined the war in its latter half, but its initiation of nuclear exchanges escalated the conflicts. As a result, the Empire was hit by 16 nuclear strikes, 3 of them were in Zitravia and 2 more were in Kozavia itself.

Post-War Period

In December 1995, Kazimir Ivanovich headed home to his heartbroken mother and bed-ridden grandfather, then continued his education in the General Staff College alongside his cousin, Fyodor Alexeyevich Svaskov, who served in the Navy. Both cousins soon rekindled their fraternal relationship and became intimate friends despite their differences (Kazimir being a stoic army officer and Fyodor being a jovial young sailor). During this time, Miroslavsky obtained a Bachelor's degree in Political Sciences in 1997 and was transferred to the Gendarmerie when the Armed Forces were downsized due to budget issues. Seeing that his new career was more inclined to secret police duties, he decided for a Master's degree in Public Safety in 2002. Nonetheless, the reputation of the Army General Staff followed him: "the regiment of scorpions, vipers, and vultures -- cunning, shrewd and vicious behind the facade of intellectualism and bureaucracy." It was safe to say that he was rarely popular with his colleagues in the Gendarmerie regardless of positions and duties he took.

In the year 2000, the Kozavian Empire initiated the reduction of its Armed Forces all over the Empire. In Zitravia, 80,000 young officers, commissioned and non-commissioned, were dismissed or transferred to other positions in the police and the bureaucracy. This resulted in the general resentment among the officers who were moved, as some of them came from "military families" and did not know how to go about a new career. However, a large number of these officers were transferred to the police, hence strengthening the Zitravian law enforcement for a while before its eventual collapse from the inside.

As Zitravia became politically unstable, the Kozavian Empire began to rely more upon the ruthless hand of the Gendarmerie to curb down the dissidents. First, Miroslavsky was stationed in Providenska and ordered to keep an uncomfortably close look of Baron Lavrentiy Kholmatzhonov, Mayor of Providenska. (Even today, it is more or less known that Kholmatzhonov is uncomfortable with his presence.) However, he was later transferred to Svarevna to watch over of the Auestriker prisoners of war in 2005. This transfer was the result of his defensive stance towards the Cossack Guards accused of the assassination attempt on the Governor-General of Imperial Zitravia, in which his cousin Colonel Oleksander Kyrycenko was involved. Miroslavsky couldn't quite put a finger on what was going on, but was soon aware that not every man in the Kremlin was loyal to the Kozavian Empire.

The very last Governor-General of Imperial Zitravia before the storming of the Kremlin was Casmar Kirillovich Deryzsky, who was proven unpopular with the common people, but tolerated by the aristocracy whom he tried hard to appease. In January 2005, the Governor-General was shot in the back by an unknown assassin (later revealed to be a hired hitman rather than a politically-driven killer) while in an opera house. Among the suspects were the Cossack Guards, which was, at the time, led by Colonel Oleksander Kyrycenko, who had a tumultuous relationship with the Governor-General. (Irony was that Kyrychenko was considered both a Cossack and a nobleman in Kozavian system, two of which rarely overlapped thanks to the Cossacks being a unique society.) The case was soon revealed to be plotted by the men from the inner circle of the Kremlin in order to cause a stir -- it was not even meant to be successful.

In the Naukograd of the Auestriker prisoners of war, he felt almost like a prisoner himself, and, even worse, stuck with people who did not speak (or even try to) speak Russian or Ukrainian. Nonetheless, he managed to gain the trust of their leading figure, Prof. Dr. Alexander Theodore de Marmesont and caught the attention of his daughter, who was 19 years old at the time. Despite being 15 years apart, he soon proposed to her and they were engaged in the spring of 2006. This became the second event that compromised his career in the Gendarmerie, especially thanks to the free-thinking nature of the Auestriker Naukograd that was deemed dangerous to the Kozavian Rule. After studying the contested legality of this prisoner-of-war camp, Kazimir Ivanovich questioned openly and strongly that something was wrong with the Imperial Rule for the first time. It was technically illegal to hold prisoners of war without proper trials and clearly-defined war crimes, but there was no international entity that could enforce the right way to deal with the Naukograd's "inmates".

Auestriker Empire was an archnemesis of the Kozavian Empire during the Imperialists' War, and its defeat meant that the furious and embittered Kozavian Empire was free to trample over it. In 1995, 1,500 Auestriker prisoners of war were handpicked for their expertise in military-related engineering and extradited to a Naukograd (science city) in Svarevna for the purpose of weapon research. According to their sentences, most members were to be put under labor for at least 20 years. One of the high-ranking members in the Auestriker POWS was Prof. Dr. Alexander Theodore de Marmesont, a 36-year-old aerospace engineer. After gaining permission from the Kozavian authority, his wife and twin children joined him in the Naukograd.

The Naukograd was essentially a city, with its own hospital, school, housing, emergency service, and utilities. For most parts, the "prisoners" had to take care of their own living condition, while living and working under the strict eye of Zitravian Gendarmerie. If anything broke, they had to fix it themselves while the Gendarmeire's only job was to watch them work and report on it and to prevent them from stepping out of the city without permission. This, however, also meant that their living standard certainly was above normal prisons and that they retained a sense of community. As a result, they kept their own culture and even refused to speak Russian or Ukrainian to their "jailors" and even demanded respect for their high-ranked officers and scientists. During the Revolution and the War of Independence, Dr. Marmesont made no movement and merely followed the Provisional Government. But as soon as the Civil War arrived, he defied Vice Admiral Yermirov's order to remain quiet (which was what they were supposed to do) and sided with Miroslavsky's Workers' Union who promised them freedom. By the time the Naukograd was dissolved and the prisoners of war were released, they had a population of 2,167, which included the original prisoners of war and some of the families who joined them. Some of them left for their home in the Auestriker Empire, some of them decided that Zitravgrad was already their new home.

Recalled back to Providenska, the first person Miroslavsky would meet was his own authority, in the form of Gendarmerie Director Kirill Petrovich Kavaz. Almost immediately, he was accused of collaborating with the Austriker prisoners of war and put under "torture routine" for two weeks (along with a few other notable officers, one of whom died in torture). But it was soon revealed to Miroslavsky that Kavaz needed someone to take the blames for his own collaboration with the fascists under Vice-Admiral Nikolai Stepanovich Yermirov and it was Kavaz himself that plotted the assassination attempt on the Governor-General's life. Kavaz was duly exposed and tried for his crime by his colleague, Okhrana's Director Dorofey Alexeyevich Konstantinov. Miroslavsky was then released from prison in one piece, but barely alive. This event was some kind of political revelation for him, and he began to notice political factions that grew everywhere in Zitravian society. (In his own word, he mentioned "it took him too long to notice.")

Kozavian law enforcement has a rule on corporal punishment known as "Interrogation and Torture Routine". Essentially it is a process in which the interrogators must estimate the suspect's capability to withstand torture before applying a physical and psychological force upon him or her as constantly as possible without killing the person by accident. A routine is usually repetitive but specific, dictating what to do and when to do it for optimal result in interrogation. This includes, but is not limited to, long period of sensory deprivation, sleep deprivation, food and drink deprivation, and stress positions, or more physical methods such as waterboarding, mock execution, flogging and threat of mutilation. Do consider that Miroslavsky is a physically imposing man and even then they managed to break his will to exist in two weeks...

He also took considerable time to heal from the torture in the summer of 2006, which was only worsened by his grandfather's death in July. Despite being a General, Vaktomir Fyodorich did not receive any form of recognition from the Imperial Bureau -- something that Kazimir Ivanovich understood as a punishment for his supposed "defiance" to the Empire. (It was only after he became the Premier that the Kozavian Imperial Bureau claimed that they did not hear the news of the General's death.) Embittered and battered, he found a brief moment of solace with his grandfather's apprentice, then Brigadier Georgy Antonovich Zanev, who was a member of the Workers' Union.Tghe so-called "union" was then still in its infancy and the network was wide, but patchy at best. However, this changed when some army officers were involved -- the ideas shared by the union members soon spreaded widely, but quietly, to their friends and families, and so on.

Prof. Dr. Denis Anatoleyevich Mefimsky's opposition towards the Kozavian Rule started from the tamed and reserved environment of the University of Providenska but soon was translated into something people could digest. Essentially socialistic, pro-worker rights and anti-monarchy, the Workers' Union was considered radical and dangerous by the Kozavian authority (and frankly by other factions as well). Since their ideology attracted common people, the Workers' Union's strength was in the number of supporters. The Workers' Union later became the Workers' Party under the leadership of Premier Miroslavsky, but its founders are no longer sure if its ideology still remains.

Revolution and Civil War

In a fit of intense emotions, whatever those were, Miroslavsky took them seriously. Soon enough, he would be an influential member of the Workers' Union although he never fully acknowledged the economic ideology with which this faction came up. Meanwhile, he kept contact with his fiancee (who was finishing her doctorate in the University of Svarevna, where technocratic activities were at its peak) and learned, mostly by chance, of another faction of right-wing technocrats heavily overlapping with the fascists and a centrist faction fixed upon restoring the Yaroslav dynasty. None of those would really matter to him until he learned that Dr. Konstantin Stepanovich Nedelykov, a mathematician and computer scientist, was working on nationwide sabotage which would signal the beginning of the fascist revolution. (Coincidentally, Nedelykov was a half-brother of Vice-Admiral Yermirov and a former colleague of Prof. Dr. Marmesont.) While questioning the relationship between Feodora Alexandrovna and Konstantine Stepanovich, Miroslavsky still made use of most information about the latter that he heard through his fiancee and others. However, the actual day of the sabotage had never been fixed and its arrival on 12 August 2007 was Nedelykov's own decision. During this time, Miroslavsky played the role of a loyal gendarmerie officer while covering the activities of his own faction.

Even the fascists had two sides inside them... Led by Vice Admiral Nikolai Stepanovich Yermirov, the republican fascists were in support of a fascist republic run by a regime of military officers, free from the influence of a monarchy. It had its own struggles before forming into a small, but crucial faction filled with the top brass of the Armed Forces in the early 2000s, with its heart in the Zitravian Navy. Meanwhile, Dr. Konstantin Stepanovich Nedelykov was more of an aristocrat who wished to preserve the shape and form of the Zitravian ruling class -- the old elites. He rooted for the return of the pre-Kozavian monarchy. the Yaroslav dynasty. Although both were covered with the blanket term of "fascism" thanks to their far-right stances, they were drastically different and not even the brotherly bond would hold Nedelykov and Yermirov together to the end.

Thoughts were made in a school of thought -- the Front was united in the office of Asst. Prof. Dr. Adam Yanovich Dresvyanin, but his front was not very wide. Largely kept among themselves, the educated middle-class of eastern oblasts considered themselves above the common people by their education and merits, but below the middle-class in Providenska and Yaroslavogorod and the ever-privileged aristocracy. They were freshly-educated from abroad and brought "new ideas" to home, mostly from western nations. Even in the 21st century, the Kozavian Empire was a stranger to the idea such as "democracy", and they believed themselves to be the pioneers of it. In their mind, the only way that Zitravia could be free was to be independent from the Empire first and foremost. In its infancy, the United Front was considered an ally of the Yaroslavian Fascists until the Provisional Government came into existence.

Baron Lavrentiy Yurievich Kholmatzhonov was two-faced -- he served as the Mayor of Providenska, one of the most important posts in the Kozavian Empire, while he himself worked towards to the return of the Yaroslav dynasty. Nonetheless, he also sought to preserve the culture that the Kozavian Empire had given them over the centuries... all the while he tried to make democracy a thing in this nation. Perhaps his only crime was so much compromise.

Before the Kozava dynasty took over Zitravia in the 16th century, the Grand Principality of Zitravia was ruled by the Yaroslav dynasty. Unlike the opulent and grandiose, yet militaristic Kozava, the Yaroslav has always been rather ascetic and peaceful. And this was the reason they were still honored with the title of Grand Prince/Princess and allowed to hold religious ceremonies in the name of Zitravia. But nonetheless, the title was a merely empty word, and there have been a few Grand Princes who had tried to wrestle their dominion back.

Grand Prince Viktor has always been a subject of discussion (and much quarrel). When a faction considered itself "Yaroslavian", its allegiance laid with him. Still, Grand Prince Viktor considered their allegiance a manipulation and his position a pawn of power. He was only 19 years old when the Revolution started, and never actually condoned any faction.

In the early morning of 12 October 2007, Miroslavsky took the chances to hijack the sabotage and marched with the Workers' Union to the Providenska Kremlin Walls, just to discover that the fascists would arrive by Light Cruiser Aphylla, under the leadership of Vice-Admiral Yermirov himself. Moreover, the other factions would throw themselves into this opportunity at later dates. Public protests would become more frequent and, worse, the police and the military personnel were found abandoning their posts to join the protesters. Despite the mixed message and visible ideological clash between the left and the right as well as the republican and the Yaroslavian, the Kozavian Empire sensed one crucial issue -- a revolution.

Dr. Nedelykov is a man of complex operations -- even more so than Miroslavsky. In 1996, he started writing a calculator program named Paradox, which soon grew into a more complex software with several extensions (Equinox Paradox for date and time calculator, Avaritia Paradox for accounting, etc., etc.) But its final extension was "Licentia Paradox" which was a brute force hacking program that slowly ate into the Zitravian Regional GovSys (Government's System) and into all public systems while erasing its own footprints. If Nedelykov's interrogation is reliable at all, 12 October 2007 was not the day he was ready, but rather a month before. But before then, he left his 32 GB RAM desktop computer running a 5 TB heavy software on the high-speed connection from 2001 to 2007, just to get hijacked on the day of operation.

The sabotage lasted almost 5 days, during which electricity, telephone lines and internet were not working (except some places that had their own generators -- a minor detail for Nedelykov anyway.) His targets were the bureaucracy and the law enforcement who, as he wanted, failed flat to preserve order in the capital city and other strategic locations.

"The Empire's greatest mistake was allowing Baron Kholmatzhonov to live long enough to conduct the provisional government like the Zitravian Philharmonic Orchestra. But after we finished the second movement, the woodwind (the Workers' Union) and the brasswind (the Fascists) were in disagreement. Then, we ditched the percussion (the Communist) for being obnoxiously loud and out of rhythm and the string players (various Yaroslavian factions) had to watch as the pianist (Dr. Nedelykov -- who actually plays the piano) left the stage. But the provisional government served the original purpose -- driving the Empire away from Zitravia." - Miroslavsky's comment on the Provisional Government

The meeting between faction leaders were called in November 2007, by Baron Kholmatzhonov. Despite his excellent mediator skill, he followed an ideology that was the least popular among the radicals -- a simple constitutional monarchy under Grand Prince Yaroslav, but not without a strong grip from the aristocracy. Nonetheless, he was able to convince all sides to gather the troops in time before the Zitravian War of Independence officially began on 15 January 2008. Miroslavsky did not stand as the leader of the Workers' Union during the Revolution or the War of Independence, but was heavily involved in military and police affairs and seated as Director of Public Safety in the Provisional Government. Now face to face with Nedelykov and Yermirov, Miroslavsky sensed future conflicts with them (or rather initiated it out of sheer distrust). The reason behind Miroslavsky's appointment despite the existence of more senior law enforcement officers was his role in the Workers' Union and his facade of being negotiable and submissive to the Provisional Government. He was put in two major roles -- one of a military staff commander and one of a police commander. Much like many "warlords" during the Revolution, Miroslavsky himself did have to deal with insubordination with lashes and bullets.

On 28 August 2008, the Kozavian Empire accepted their "inability to win" against the Zitravian forces and a treaty was signed between the delegates of the Empire and the new fledging nation which had not even decided what it was going to be. Again and again, Kholmatzhonov realized that there was no way the new nation would survive if all factions remained intact, but he was far from being the only man who realized it. Largely by personal prejudice, Kholmatzhonov dismissed the Communist Party out of the picture, a decision that marked him as a rival of other left-wing parties. Meanwhile, the Strasserites under Border Guard Director Dmitri Yakovich Potyomkin blended into the Workers' Union and the rift between right-wing factions deepened over the role of Grand Prince Yaroslav. The United Front led by Adam Yanovich Dresvyanin left the scene and went into inactivity (until its comeback in 2010), while Nedelykov and Yermirov struggled to work together anymore. The Internal Ceasefire (30 August - 7 November 2008) was a period in which nothing happened on the outside, but the Provisional Government was internally on the verge of collapse while it was working to preserve itself. The Collaborators' Civil War broke soon after its collapse. Most notably, it was Miroslavsky himself who broke the ceasefire by arranging an attack on the Fascists' submarine Odrashka.

As the Director of the Public Safety, Miroslavsky was the closest to the common people, while Yermirov was the closest to the Zitravian troops as the Commander-in-Chief. But in reality, Miroslavsky was an iron-handed leader who ran the civilian with draconian rule and Yermirov was a brutal commander who ran the troops with terror as his tool. Their only difference was that Miroslavsky was by the least tolerated and capable of compromise while men under Yermirov's oppression were actually holding guns. Ironically, Yermirov's demise and Miroslavsky's victory were in the sailors' hands.

The sailors under Vice-Admiral Yermirov were perhaps the least tolerant of Yermirov. In December 2008, the fleet under Yermirov was still stationed next to the Providenska Kremlin slightly away from the Admiralty Building, a position he wouldn't give up for anything. After enough naval warfare (and many rounds of embarking-disembarking), Rear Admiral Fyodor Alexeyevich Svaskov decided that he couldn't win with his inferior fleet. He issued a message which he spoke to a loudspeaker: "Brothers, if we continue, we will be sailing next to the Admiralty forever, and perhaps sink next this Admiralty. But I have a question, is your captain going to sink with you?" It was not effective immediately, but after another fruitless few days, doubts began to rise (actually on both sides). While no one knew for sure what had happened on Yermirov's flagship, but eyewitnesses reported a quarrel erupting between Yermirov and his best mate before it escalated into a violent fight in which Yermirov was shot and fell off the ship. The sailors did not make an effort to retrieve his body and soon the best mate surrendered almost plainly and emotionlessly.

New Era of Zitravia

28 December 2008 marked a new era in which Zitravia had its slate wiped almost clean. The Workers' Union became the Workers' Party and established total control over Zitravia. And that was exactly the first thing Miroslavsky did as the Premier of Zitravgrad -- control. The Party reformed the administration system, silenced all political oppositions, including the Eastern Orthodox Church, nationalized half of the nation's economy and drafted a new constitution -- in which the Yaroslav dynasty was not even mentioned. But what remained was the police and military systems that exercised tight authority over the population. Within months, the Party got rid of all traces of feudalism and aristocracy. Nevertheless, its promise to bring a democratic system to Zitravgrad was swept under the carpet for the first years of the Workers' Party's rule.

To be fair, the first years of the Workers' Party were far from smooth. Considering themselves as betrayed, the fascist collaborators were after Miroslavsky's head, while Kholmatzhonov kept denouncing him over the promises both to liberalize Zitravgrad and to recognize Grand Prince Yaroslav as the head of state. But Miroslavsky knew Kholmatzhonov -- the only form of government that the latter would approve was one that he was in. Thus why he completely killed Kholmatzhonov's plans from the roots to finish. With Zitravgrad as a republic, Miroslavsky thought that the new ruling class had to be stratocrats or technocrats and there would be no future otherwise. In his characteristically drastic fashion, he replaced the Kremlin's staffs, the Cabinet of Ministers and the high commands of military and police forces with men he could trust and people of high expertise, ditching anyone with any involvement with any faction opposing to his.

"By the damned least, he is honest about being treacherous." - An unnamed collaborator

While it was not a single-handed feat, Miroslavsky administration has always been famous for tight law enforcement, state-capitalist economic system, extensive public education and healthcare, secular laws and largely neutral and risk-avoiding diplomatic stance -- this is made possible by an equally extensive bureaucracy. Meanwhile, in his personal life, he was married to Feodora Alexandrovna on 28 February 2009. The wedding, however, was far from publicized, a statement that his personal life would be isolated from political affairs. His marriage has been largely peaceful and loving, except for a brief moment of suspicion in 2015 which was in its core a political scheme.

One of Kazimir Ivanovich's greatest critics live in his house -- Feodora Alexandrovna has always been a living symbol of Auestriker technocrats against other technocratic factions (i.e. Dresvyanin, Nedelykov). Auestriker technocrats have always been a special breed of technocrats in Zitravia, usually seen as a closed community of German-speaking educated upper-middle-class people who immigrated into the eastern nation to "modernize" it, but ended up making the knowledge they brought impenetrably. They are westernized, disciplined, and more free-thinking than the Zitravian counterpart. Thus, they are the first to oppose all forms of censorship and restriction that will block their "path to progress".

Most of the details surrounding this affair are private, but what is known of it involves a secret communication between Feodora Alexandrovna herself and a military intelligence officer, both of whom used to be associates of Dr. Konstantin Stepanovich Nedelykov in one way or another. The official report had it that the ZKVD suspected several right-leaning technocrats (among them the First Lady herself of all people, and the future Prime Minister Adam Yanovich Dresvyanin) of being co-conspirators of Dr. Nedelykov and the far-right movements before and during the Revolution. This suspicion was reinforced by the fact that both Miroslavskaya and Dresvyanin hold a copy of Paradox software. However, Dresvyanin's former presence and resignation from the Provisional Government prove him innocent. Miroslavskaya is nowhere near that fortunate. Her father gave Nedelykov himself a refuge in his house before the latter tried to cross the borders illegally and she was one of the last people who were in touch with Nedelykov. The ZKVD sent a warning that they had to imprison her for treason if there is still no evidence of her innocence. Without other choices at hand (and perhaps still feeling betrayed), Miroslavsky allowed the charge to be placed on his wife along with a few others. Two months later, the further investigation from the ZKVD proved that most of the contacts surrounding Nedelykov had been non-political and the families of the convicted technocrats appealed for a release. Unfortunately, the misunderstanding had taken place and the damage had been done. The technocrats generally loyal to Miroslavsky soon shifted themselves away to their only choice of the time -- Dresvyanin and the United Front. This event also ironically empowered Nedelykov's status after his release in early 2019, to the so-called "fascist terrorist" to "the losing side of the political game".

Pressed on about the promise to liberalize Zitravgrad, Miroslavsky finally pinpointed the election date on 28 November 2016 and declared that he and the Workers' Party would also run for the election. The election results came out three weeks later and Miroslavsky became the Premier again for the secondterm. But what he did not expect was the popular comeback of the United Front under Dresvyanin, who became the Prime Minister. The new formation of the Verkhovna Rada would also recognize the ceremonious role of Grand Prince Viktor Pavlovich Yaroslav. In his own perspective, he felt "burdened" with the necessity to cooperate with Dresvyanin and Yaroslav, and found that civilian governance was very different from what he had been doing his whole life. Nonetheless, the three formed a fair work relationship and they have managed for three years so far without major disagreements (but many, many minor ones).


Appearance and Health

It is generally accepted that Mr. Miroslavsky is a Polshsky-Tbilosian and has "mixed features between Oriental and Auropian", but also has Zitravian ancestors in his family tree. OOC: A Polish-Georgian He is much taller than average Zitravgradian men, but somewhat lean for his height and intensive physical activity. Broad-shouldered, lightly tanned and muscular, he sets an image of a working man. Nonetheless, he is reportedly overworked and has chronic insomnia as well as "bouts of inexplicable worries" stemming from wartime trauma, among other things. One of his eyes (the right one) is a transplant. He lost his old eye after the injury from the torture routine. Absolutely not because he plucked it out as a sacrifice to the Altar of St. Yeruslan or anything like that.

Thanks to years of military and police training, Miroslavsky is very well-built and made to withstand the weathers. (That also includes torture.) He has always been in excellent health but inevitably has scars from the "routine". Hence, he dresses rather conservatively to hide the scars, some of which are deep and cannot be treated. For a man in his age, he looks rather young, with a head full of neatly-combed black hair and a pair of cold, unfeeling eyes (albeit one in yellow and one in blue). He always presents himself well-dressed and well-groomed, even in the moments that he is supposed to be more relaxed like at home or in his "breaks".

Miroslavsky finished his education from St. Vasily Military Academy and General Staff College since junior high school to a Master's degree. He has a Bachelor's degree in Political Sciences and a Master's degree in Public Safety. Although a polyglot, the only language he can really use to communicate with a non-Russian speaker is English. His knowledge in Armenian, Georgian, Turkish and Polish is barely used anywhere. His other interests include mathematics, literature in the aforementioned languages and architecture.


Personality and Personal Life

"Mr. Miroslavsky is outwardly modest, charming and polite, but he knows how amiable he appears to others and is not afraid to use and abuse this trait of his. Every move is calculated, counted, and planned." - Adam Yanovich Dresvyanin's comment on his colleague

A hard-working and dedicated figure, but also manipulative, tricky and almost sadistic, Miroslavsky is in a way revered and respected, but never loved. He keeps a stern face, aloof demeanor, and cold voice to establish authority, and only softens down when he needs the softer power. His form of intelligence is more practical than theoretical and he is a master of complex details and operations -- he would do everything and anything to achieve his goals and knows to find the right person for the right work. Upright, uptight and conservative in his manners, he has a low tolerance for mistake and impropriety. Even a common swear word from him is a rare thing. Although his PHQ-II comes out as below average, he has a firm grasp on reality and generally a good grip on his own emotions. He is almost too comfortable with the notion of physical and psychological pain, regardless of whether he is giving or receiving. And while he doesn't lose his temper often, it is best to avoid the scene when he does lose it.

Miroslavsky's personal life revolves around his family. His relationship with his wife has been loving and passionate, even if occasionally bumpy thanks to him being quite unbearably jealous and possessive. In his children's upbringing, he is the more strict parent while his wife seems to almost coddle them. Meanwhile, his relationships with other family members are also quite well. He takes fair care of his aging mother and generally listens to what she has to say and keeps his cousin Fyodor close at hand. His relationship with his in-law family is at least on speaking term, even if not intimate. As a friend, Miroslavsky is polite, yet intimate, but far from open and fully honest. His personal life is mostly unknown to the public, but there are often photos of him engaging in masculine sports like marksmanship, hunting or horseriding. He is also fairly reserved in his way of dressing, preferring three-piece suits and uniforms and avoiding casuals.

Apart from his family, Miroslavsky is known for being "uncomfortable" around other women, thanks to his upbringing and formation years in the military academy, in which its students are segregated by gender. Meanwhile, it won't be wrong to say that he might get too "comfortable" in the company of his male friends, to the point of banya-term friendship (aka close enough to go to a bathhouse together without being awkward). It could also be said that he is somewhat biased when it comes to his "brothers-in-arms". Otherwise, he enjoys old music and reading, as well as gardening. Although no one knows much detail about it, he has a summer dacha in Paplonbrianska which he visits when he has time or has works to do in the northern region.


Trivia

    - Miroslavsky has a liking for large, wolf-like dogs, which he uses in hunting. In his opinion, his dogs are well-behaved though not necessarily domesticated, but they are not going to eat his wife's rabbits or cats or anything... probably.

    - His ancestors came from Tbilosia and Miroslavsky considers himself "an ethnic Tbilosian" whenever ethnicity is concerned in Zitravgradian politics despite generations of intermarriage.

    - He prefers tea and will consider coffee a drug for staying up late more than actual beverage. He also drinks moderately and smokes mostly from a pipe, although he will accept a cigarette if offered one. The least one discusses about his old drug habit, the better.

    - He works out every other day and is generally considered an athletic person. It is a boot camp habit as much as (if not more than) genuine interest to remain in good shape or health.


Political Views and Works

Not surprisingly but unfortunately, Miroslavsky has always perceived the idea of living under authority as a fact of life and hence has little qualm against dictatorships personally. He was born in a family of military officers, then whisked off to the military academy at the age of 12-13 and had been in the military and the law enforcement up until when he became the Premier. He is no stranger to harsh trainings and strict discipline, which puts him in the stratocratic type. In fact, he had problems adjusting to running civilian affairs for a good while. As mentioned above, Miroslavsky has a more moderate political standing than the party he represents, but is much more willing to use authority as a tool of governance. With his wolflike instincts, it is not unusual to see Miroslavsky as a pack animal, often providing himself with the company of his like-minded "brothers". Most of his associates are in the military and the law enforcement, thus enabling him to a stronger grasp on his authority without having to wield it all the time. Despite (former) accusations of him being a communist, he was not interested in protecting the Communist Party when it was catapulted out of the Provisional Government, mostly due to its clandestine foreign involvement. His economic policies can still be considered more left-wing, but it is clear that he is unwilling to push for further nationalization than he has already done (namely utilities, transportation, infrastructure, education, healthcare and half of the mining sector). He is, however, more notable as a nationalist and a secularist. It is rumored that his membership in the Eastern Orthodox Church is more of a publicity stunt or just "I forgot to sign out" circumstance.

Despite being from two obviously opposing parties, the Premier remains an excellent term with the Prime Minister. However, he has a mediocre relationship with the Grand Prince, seeing him as a colleague rather than a superior. After all, it is Miroslavsky who is the head of the state and Grand Prince Viktor is not much more than a cultural symbol. Both men are aware of this fact and Miroslavsky rarely forgets to mention it whenever he can. Otherwise, he is a supporter of automation in the sectors that have insufficient labor, genetically modified food projects and heavy industrialized to replace the agricultural sector that has taken the damage of the nuclear fallout. Interestingly, he has proposed that Zitravgrad can use more nuclear power. Despite being seemingly "bold" and "uncaring" of public opinions, he would at least try to not disturb the people enough that they start another revolution against him. With his "old world charm" and some manipulative tactics, he still has the good graces of the urban population, the conservative bourgeoisie and the senior regional politicians.

Miroslavsky is not an excellent diplomat on his own, but a good host when it comes to hosting diplomats and negotiations. Even if he prefers a neutral stance, his status as a revolutionary against the Kozavian Empire automatically means that he is pro-Auropian Union, such and such, because there is no way for any Zitravgradian to turn back to the East without looking like a prodigal son looking for his home. This explains the tight border control and patrol at the Kozavian-Zitravgradian borders.



Declassified Data

    At his own accord, Miroslavsky had his own war records destroyed from January 2008 to March 2009. What remains to be declassified here is collected from unrelated reports assembled together. During the Revolution and the Civil War, there was no actual rank and order within the left-wing revolutionaries and any measurement of command was based on the person's experiences, age or simply allegiance. Much like other warlords during the time, Miroslavsky was holding an army he recruited, consisting of militiamen, professional soldiers and foreign volunteers. The question of the foreign volunteers was never answered or explained, but most records had implied that they were from nations who were rivals to the Kozavian Empire. It has also been heavily implied that Miroslavsky, who speaks reasonably good Turkish, had a few connections with Saratolian diplomats and hence the Sultan of Saratolik. A couple more dispatches have discovered that Miroslavsky was aware or even supported by nationalist movements in other parts of the Kozavian Empire, namely Tbilosian and Veyaranian underground movements. His troops traded weapons and mercenaries with other nationalist movements and still supports them until now albeit covertly.
    - Before and during the Civil War, Miroslavsky would have the funds of his troops both from domestic and foreign sponsors transferred to an offshore account and converted the funds into a stable currency that was not Kozavian ruble due to the descending value of the currency. His troops were not paid in paper money due to the instability of the situations, but rather in necessities like food, clothes and medicine for the soldiers and their families. Once he became the Premier, the surviving soldiers were paid and the families of soldiers killed in action were compensated, although some found it inadequate due to the remaining funds being insufficient.
    - During the very start of his rise to power, Miroslavsky was not beyond conducting a political purge against his former enemies. Most of them would be discharged from their positions in the military, law enforcement or bureaucracy, a few others would be imprisoned or exiled and the rest of them would simply be killed in an arrangement that was supposed to look like "an accident".
    - Even how he lost his original right eye would be considered a secret due to the issue of drug abuse and religion that follow it. In 2006, Miroslavsky (then a gendarmerie officer) was put under two-week torture routine and got his right eye severely injured during the torture. Once released, he turned to opium and morphine to help recover from the wounds. Unfortunately but unsurprisingly, he became schizophrenic and paranoid and started to believe in a "revelation" of some kind. Hence, he took his injured eye out and sacrificed it to St. Yeruslan's altar in the cathedral under the Kremlin. The only thing he actually learned from that was the fact that he should sober up, which he did. His current right eye (which is blue) came from an unnamed donor.

"I cannot take my mind into the world without pondering how risky it would be to live a life without rationality -- which is sadly the current state of the world." - Feodora Alexandrovna Miroslavskaya


Biography

Early Life - Post War Period

Feodora Alexandrovna Miroslavskaya was born Rosaline Deschanel de Marmesont in the Free State of Koniginsgerald, Auestriker Empire, in Central Auropia, to a family of Cerulean Konstruiertermenschen. Since the first moment of her life, her parents put her and her twin brother, Etienne Desmoulin de Marmesont, in strict but coddling upbringing and education. As members of the Cerulean Konstruiertermenschen, the two were products of "genetic cultivation" and "home sciences" (which are just polite names given to hardline eugenics and euthenics). Although Rosaline was born at the start of the Imperialists' War, her father (an aerospace engineer) remained home for a few years with his family, postponing his leave until he was called to the Zitravian Front in 1992. It was due to these factors that Rosaline and Etienne had always been raised in a closed environment. Within the circle of their large families, they did not attend school but was homeschooled with children her age. From the age of five, they spoke fluent French and German. From the age of seven, they qualified for high school-level education. But the twins' aspiring path was cut short when they were nine years old.

Striving for perfection and nothing less, Cerulean Konstruiermenschen refers to a eugenicist community of ever-changing size based in the Auestriker Empire. Starting from the 1880s as a group of 24 noble families who sought to deal with the genetic effects of familial marriage, they eventually grew into a government project for the development of "an ideal Auestriker" -- golden hair, blue eyes, pale skin, and superior physical and mental intelligence. During the time of Austriker Fascist Republic in the early 1930s, members of the Cerulean had strong connections in the government, the military, and the intelligentsia and were considered, in a sense, "gods among men". However, once the Auestriker lost the Second Global War in 1949, the eugenics program was seen as one of the causes of the nation's war crimes. The community went back to its original families and none of them ever received their titles back once monarchy returned to the Auestriker Empire in 1952. Their familial bonds slowly declined but the eugenics and euthenics principles remained intact, except the rules of marrying inside the community. Nowadays, there are 1,684 verified Cerulean Konstruiertermenschen, all of them likely related as highly advised NOT to turn back to familial marriage. Nonetheless, they still live under strict family planning and raise their children in almost "by-the-book". If anything, they still gave to the world a century of studies in applied genetics, domestic science, child and family psychology and still have the bragging rights of raising their children better than you do yours.

In 1995, the Imperialists' War was ended in a defeat for the Empire. It was not an embarrassing defeat -- almost a stalemate. Knowing this, the Kozavian Empire tried to exploit the losing side as much as possible. This meant a heavy reparation to pay and prisoners of war that couldn't be recalled. Rosaline's father was soon called to the prisoner of war camp in Zitravia, since the II Corps was captured at the near end of the war. However, it was obvious that the man himself was kept on the ground of his expertise. According to his contract (which was more coerced than willing), he was to work for the Kozavian Empire in the Zitravian Naukograd for 20 years and his status would remain "prisoner of war" rather than "employee". Still, there were many exceptions and compromises in the contract, thus enabling him to bring his family over to Zitravia.

Rosaline’s mother, Irene Therese de Marmesont, is a dedicated mother. She was determined that not even her husband’s status as a prisoner of war would mean that her children lived a difficult life. Thanks to Dr. Marmesont’s status as a respected scientist and his “bribes” to his “guards”, the family of four always was able to secure a little more food, clothes and books for themselves. But it still could not be helped that the Marmesont children grew up in an extremely closed environment with very tight rationing, since the Kozavian authority refused to give them “special treatments” and tried to treat them like common prisoners despite the contested legality in doing so.

Instead of being referred to simply as the Third Global War, the Imperialists' War (1985 - 1995) has been granted a fancy name that reflected its imperialist nature -- it was a war that stemmed from colonial conflicts which soon escalated into a field of opportunities for colonial powers to settle conflicts, whether old or new. The Kozavian Empire and its dominions only joined the war in its latter half, but its initiation of nuclear exchanges escalated the conflicts. As a result, the Empire was hit by 16 nuclear strikes, 3 of them were in Zitravia and 2 more were in Kozavia itself.

Auestriker Empire was an archnemesis of the Kozavian Empire during the Imperialists' War, and its defeat meant that the furious and embittered Kozavian Empire was free to trample over it. In 1995, 1,500 Auestriker prisoners of war were handpicked for their expertise in military-related engineering and extradited to a Naukograd (science city) in Svarevna for the purpose of weapon research. According to their sentences, most members were to be put under labor for at least 20 years. One of the high-ranking members in the Auestriker POWS was Prof. Dr. Alexander Theodore de Marmesont, a 36-year-old aerospace engineer. After gaining permission from the Kozavian authority, his wife and twin children joined him in the Naukograd.

The Naukograd was essentially a city, with its own hospital, school, housing, emergency service, and utilities. For most parts, the "prisoners" had to take care of their own living condition, while living and working under the strict eye of Zitravian Gendarmerie. If anything broke, they had to fix it themselves while the Gendarmeire's only job was to watch them work and report on it and to prevent them from stepping out of the city without permission. This, however, also meant that their living standard certainly was above normal prisons and that they retained a sense of community. As a result, they kept their own culture and even refused to speak Russian or Ukrainian to their "jailors" and even demanded respect for their high-ranked officers and scientists. During the Revolution and the War of Independence, Dr. Marmesont made no movement and merely followed the Provisional Government. But as soon as the Civil War arrived, he defied Vice Admiral Yermirov's order to remain quiet (which was what they were supposed to do) and sided with Miroslavsky's Workers' Union who promised them freedom. By the time the Naukograd was dissolved and the prisoners of war were released, they had a population of 2,167, which included the original prisoners of war and some of the families who joined them. Some of them left for their home in the Auestriker Empire, some of them decided that Zitravgrad was already their new home.

The twins never actually attended school until 2000, when the Naukograd’s status was changed from “prisoner camp” to “war factory”. A slight influx of Zitravian and Kozavian workers loosened the regulations and enabled some contacts of Auestriker “Naukogradians” with the outside world. Their rationing got more reasonable, the high-ranking officers, scientists and engineers got their personal quarters and most importantly, they were starting to earn actual wages – although none was allowed to return to the Auestriker Empire. This renovation was credited to several angry appeals from Dr. Marmesont and his scientist colleagues, but also to the Zitravian mathematician and computer scientist who worked in collaboration to them – Dr. Konstantin Stepanovich Nedelykov.

In the year 2000, Dr. Konstantin Stepanovich Nedelykov duly arrived at the Auestriker Naukograd for a secret project. He was ordered to create a software that would revolutionize AI warfare, now known as Paradoxical XII Ludus Latruncularius. It was the twelve extension of Nedelykov’s own Paradoxical Engine and it would become a seed of the man’s destiny. With its modified version still in use today, Paradoxical Engine is a software written for bureaucratic works, specifically to fit the Zitravian bureaucratic system in the 2000s. Each of its extension is for a specific branch of works – ranging from accountancy and state audit, to hospital records, to civil and military engineering, to citizens’ records, to law enforcement’s surveillance system. Despite being checked by other programmers, Nedelykov still managed to hack back into his own program and take control of Zitravian bureaucratic system again in 2007, thus starting the Zitravian Revolution.

It was not wrong to call Dr. Nedelykov a friend of the Marmesont’s family. A young genius and a young man from an aristocratic family, Nedelykov understood the upright and uptight family’s way of life and was fascinated by the twins’ intelligence. He would use his connections to help them get into university at the age of fourteen. Rosaline and Etienne then received student visa and stayed under Nedelykov’s remote care. The man himself also had a sister in their age – Elena Stepanova, who became their friend and later married Etienne in 2011.

Although interested in medical science at first (due to her family’s history with eugenics and euthenics), Rosaline took after Nedelykov and went for mathematics and later physics. She obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Physics in 2003 from University of Svarevna and was considered for a great while Nedelykov’s apprentice. Meanwhile, she had a hard time adjusting herself to the world outside. Fortunately, she learned Russian quickly enough to adjust (that is in about two years). She quickly returned to university to finish her Master’s which she graduated from in 2005. In the early of 2005, Nedelykov had to move to Providenska so that his sister Elena could enroll in music school in the capital. Despite feeling sad to see him go, Rosaline’s father was also relieved – he was fearing that the relationship between his daughter and her “mentor” would go beyond apprenticeship, especially when Nedelykov was 20 years older than her and was married (even if it was arranged and he was separated with his wife).

Rosaline continued to put her parents in deep concerns. Once Nedelykov left, Kazimir Ivanovich Miroslavsky entered. Assigned as the new head “warder” of the Auestriker Naukograd, Miroslavsky was different from the literal prison guard who came before him – polite, chivalrous and capable of civilized conversations (in Dr. Marmesont’s words). Of course, he would be concerned when this man was obviously interested in his daughter. Miroslavsky was a man of authority and at least 15 years older than the young woman he was pursuing. It was not long until the family gave in and Rosaline was soon engaged to him. Her engagement document was the first document ever to give her the Russian name of “Feodora Alexandrovna”.

Now provided with connections (and a man willing to pay for it), Feodora Alexandrovna was allowed to continue her education at the University of Providenska. In the early spring of 2006, her fiancé would be recalled to Providenska and went under an interrogation under the accusation of fraternization with Auestriker staffs, which was mostly a fraud play to accuse him of the assassination attempt on Governor-General Deryzsky which happened a year ago. Feodora did her best to stay at his side, as he became more paranoid and demanding of her attention. Nonetheless, she met Dr. Nedelykov again at the University of Providenska.

Revolution and Civil War

Kazimir Ivanovich had probably heard of Nedelykov once or twice, but he was becoming increasingly jealous. He moved Feodora to his home and began to eavesdrop her conversations via a spy device. Purely by chance, he had discovered one of his most important rivals in the game of Zitravian revolutionary politics. Not to startle his fiancée, he decided to keep her away from politics, including Nedelykov’s and his own involvements in anything remotely political. Nonetheless, she was too intelligent and curious for him to contain, but was not mature enough to have her own opinions. Torn between the man she loved and the man she admired, Feodora Alexandrovna had to make a choice. She chose the man who would be her husband and spoke her final farewell to Nedelykov.

"It is sad to see our destinies parting ways, Dr. Nedelykov. May your luck be with you."
"Our chosen paths will not rely on luck, dear Rosaline. It relies on the errors of our rivals."

- An excerpt from a conversation between Marmesont and Nedelykov, recorded on spy device

Even the fascists had two sides inside them... Led by Vice Admiral Nikolai Stepanovich Yermirov, the republican fascists were in support of a fascist republic run by a regime of military officers, free from the influence of a monarchy. It had its own struggles before forming into a small, but crucial faction filled with the top brass of the Armed Forces in the early 2000s, with its heart in the Zitravian Navy. Meanwhile, Dr. Konstantin Stepanovich Nedelykov was more of an aristocrat who wished to preserve the shape and form of the Zitravian ruling class -- the old elites. He rooted for the return of the pre-Kozavian monarchy. the Yaroslav dynasty. Although both were covered with the blanket term of "fascism" thanks to their far-right stances, they were drastically different and not even the brotherly bond would hold Nedelykov and Yermirov together to the end.

Prof. Dr. Denis Anatoleyevich Mefimsky's opposition towards the Kozavian Rule started from the tamed and reserved environment of the University of Providenska but soon was translated into something people could digest. Essentially socialistic, pro-worker rights and anti-monarchy, the Workers' Union was considered radical and dangerous by the Kozavian authority (and frankly by other factions as well). Since their ideology attracted common people, the Workers' Union's strength was in the number of supporters. The Workers' Union later became the Workers' Party under the leadership of Premier Miroslavsky, but its founders are no longer sure if its ideology still remains.

"Errors of our rivals" was directed at Miroslavsky. Nedelykov knew, even if late into his plot, that he was being listened to, and was willing to reject his feelings for one woman he couldn’t have for a grand plan. Meanwhile, Nedelykov’s half-brother, Vice-Admiral Nikolai Stepanovich Yermirov, took over the Naukograd for weapon production. Feodora herself was capable of some theoretic works surrounding these weapons, having seen her father working over them for years. Moreover, she was also highly familiar with Nedelykov’s Paradoxical Engine. Once the sabotage arrived on 12 October 2007, she knew by the very least some ways to get around it.

Dr. Nedelykov is a man of complex operations -- even more so than Miroslavsky. In 1996, he started writing a calculator program named Paradox, which soon grew into a more complex software with several extensions (Equinox Paradox for date and time calculator, Avaritia Paradox for accounting, etc., etc.) But its final extension was "Licentia Paradoxical" which was a brute force hacking program that slowly ate into the Zitravian Regional GovSys (Government's System) and into all public systems while erasing its own footprints. If Nedelykov's interrogation is reliable at all, 12 October 2006 was not the day he was ready, but rather a month before. But before then, he left his 32 GB RAM desktop computer running a 5 TB heavy software on the high-speed connection from 2001 to 2006, just to get hijacked on the day of operation.

The sabotage lasted almost 5 days, during which electricity, telephone lines and internet were not working (except some places that had their own generators -- a minor detail for Nedelykov anyway.) His targets were the bureaucracy and the law enforcement who, as he wanted, failed flat to preserve order in the capital city and other strategic locations.

Knowing that he could be killed at any time, Miroslavsky kept his fiancée at home when he was involved in combat during the War of Independence against the Kozavian Empire and the Collaborators’ Civil War against Vice-Admiral Yermirov’s troops. She still contributed to war efforts through more technical works. During the entirety of the Provisional Government, she stayed underground and this would become her normal habit for much of her future career.

New Era of Zitravia

For most of the year 2008, Feodora Alexandrovna was barely aware what was going on with Zitravgrad’s politics apart from the fact that her fiancé was alive and well. On 1 January 2009, she was brought into the Kremlin and informed that she was going to be the First Lady of the newfound United Federation of Zitravgrad as soon as she was married. She was given two months to prepare herself (which was in fact the time needed to plan the wedding anyway). Not for the first time, she doubted the man she was going to marry. But she eventually was convinced that her doubts were just a natural thing.

"My life consists of moving from one closed world to another. Don’t expect anything new – it will become routine after long enough." - Feodora Alexandrovna on her lifestyle

Her marriage started out smooth and she was soon accustomed to a life in a closed-off world that was arranged for her. She goes back and forth between her works, her husband and her children, all under the security measures of the Kremlin. Even so, she is still rather critical of her husband’s politics and there are still some suspicion surrounding her former involvements with Dr. Nedelykov and the Auestriker Naukograd – none of which was avoidable. Otherwise, she has been quiet and obedient. Curiously, she is rarely allowed to speak on her own to the public and never appears outside alone.

One of Kazimir Ivanovich's greatest critics live in his house -- Feodora Alexandrovna has always been a living symbol of Auestriker technocrats against other technocratic factions (i.e. Dresvyanin, Nedelykov). Auestriker technocrats have always been a special breed of technocrats in Zitravia, usually seen as a closed community of German-speaking educated upper-middle-class people who immigrated into the eastern nation to "modernize" it, but ended up making the knowledge they brought impenetrably. They are westernized, disciplined, and more free-thinking than the Zitravian counterpart. Thus, they are the first to oppose all forms of censorship and restriction that will block their "path to progress".

Most of the details surrounding this affair are private, but what is known of it involves a secret communication between Feodora Alexandrovna herself and a military intelligence officer, both of whom used to be associates of Dr. Konstantin Stepanovich Nedelykov in one way or another. The official report had it that the ZKVD suspected several right-leaning technocrats (among them the First Lady herself of all people, and the future Prime Minister Adam Yanovich Dresvyanin) of being co-conspirators of Dr. Nedelykov and the far-right movements before and during the Revolution. This suspicion was reinforced by the fact that both Miroslavskaya and Dresvyanin hold a copy of Paradox software. However, Dresvyanin's former presence and resignation from the Provisional Government prove him innocent. Miroslavskaya is nowhere near that fortunate. Her father gave Nedelykov himself a refuge in his house before the latter tried to cross the borders illegally and she was one of the last people who were in touch with Nedelykov. The ZKVD sent a warning that they had to imprison her for treason if there is still no evidence of her innocence. Without other choices at hand (and perhaps still feeling betrayed), Miroslavsky allowed the charge to be placed on his wife along with a few others. Two months later, the further investigation from the ZKVD proved that most of the contacts surrounding Nedelykov had been non-political and the families of the convicted technocrats appealed for a release. Unfortunately, the misunderstanding had taken place and the damage had been done. The technocrats generally loyal to Miroslavsky soon shifted themselves away to their only choice of the time -- Dresvyanin and the United Front. This event also ironically empowered Nedelykov's status after his release in early 2019, to the so-called "fascist terrorist" to "the losing side of the political game".

After the ordeal in 2015 involving some leftover suspicions around here, the First Lady has absolutely nothing to say when it comes to changes that do not concern her line of works (mostly science, technology and education). In fact, she rarely ever has her own public statements and this is mostly due to the Premier himself preventing her from speaking because he knows that they do not think in the same direction. While she did not prevent her husband from running for 2016 election, she also did nothing to support him. If anything, she has always been his partner in everything except politics and he would certainly like to keep things that way.


Appearance and Health

Pure-bred Konstruiertermensch, Feodora Alexandrovna boasts the ideal Auestriker appearance – voluptuous with golden hair, bright blue eyes, and pale, porcelain-like skin. Still, she is rather short and small due to the restricted nutrition in her growing years. Her expression remains at a soft, innocent look, but without a smile. Due to her sheltered upbringing, she is very sensitive to sunlight and weathers and apparently rather insecure about her appearance. Moreover, she seems to look even smaller when nervous or uncomfortable.

Her generation is considered unfit for further familial marriage. Feodora is frail, small and prone to petty illnesses. She used to be slightly underweight, though fortunately, she is not bearing any major physical flaws (beyond what is mentioned). Excessive labor is absolutely not recommended for her.

She has a Bachelor’s degree in Physics, a Master’s degree in Mathematics and a Doctorate in Applied Mathematics. All her studies have been influenced by her father and her mentor’s expertise and hence have an inclination for military technology. Otherwise, she still retains some interests for natural sciences and medicine – although she is not more reliable than experts in respective fields. She speaks four languages – French and German as native languages and later Russian and English to fit into the Zitravian society.

Feodora Alexandrovna is generally perceived as a quiet, well-mannered and slightly nervous young woman. Her perceived intelligence is also more of “book smart” than anything. While highly organized, she has her mind wrapped around too many things at a time and easily forgets things or becomes overwhelmed. She is also rather sensitive and insecure, both physically and emotionally. She is delicate, demure and sweet but this doesn’t mean she is naïve or genuine – she maintains a façade of professionalism and aloofness while being all too ready to retaliate against anyone or anything that remotely discomforts her. Outside of work, her life seems to revolve not only around her husband and children but also herself. She also has a tendency to spoil her children but expects academic success from them even more so than her husband.

The First Lady treasures her appearance, time and personal space. She dresses well and never appears outside her own room with unruly appearance, but is not very flashy in her sense of fashion. Outside her family, she does not have a lot of friends but maintains excellent professional relationships. Like her father, she knows how to gain trust and make full use of subordinates while remaining cordial with superiors. Her relationship with her parents and twin brother remains good, even if distant.

Strangely enough, she does not have many talents in the arts, as if she was made solely for mathematics and not much else. In her free time, she likes to cook, garden or play with the family’s pets. Feodora Alexandrovna is notably fond of patisserie, flowers, and rabbits and has some rather expensive taste in trivial fineries. Within her husband's presence, she is usually rather submissive and admittedly somewhat nervous when he raises his voice or goes cold in her presence, but it is usually him who has to go all the lengths to please her and he has likely accepted it as one of the downsides of marrying a much younger wife. She could, if threatened, act innocent and oblivious, and would cry fake tears to get out of an unpleasant situation.


Trivia

    - Feodora gives less attention to her heritage than her brother, much less. Still, she is a supporter of eugenics without racial politics and might or might not be involved in the introduction of parental licensing.

    - She actually sends memes in text messages and replies in emoji because why not?

    - Her favorite flower is damask rose, as apparent in her choice of perfume, soap, etc. In her freer time (more free than average free time), she enjoys chess, reading and trying to get a German word to be as long as possible going to a spa or salon.


Political Views and Works

While she has not spoken much in public, it is known in private that she is a technocrat of textbook definition – a supporter of scientific and technological advancement, freedom of speech and a promoter of governance by expertise rather than a political campaign. Otherwise, she is either the average centrist or someone beyond the usual left-right spectrum. She also has a generally positive view towards democracy although she has worded that Zitravgradian democracy “doesn’t do anything for you, but rather keeps you from complaining for a while”.

Miroslavskaya is not keen on authoritarianism but understands that certain issues need more than sweet talk and convincing. Since she works mostly in secret military locations, she understands more than others the necessity of security. In the matter of education and healthcare, she does believe that private schools and hospitals should exist as alternatives. She also strongly supports automation, AI rights and eugenics (without racial politics) -- something that somehow makes her name more controversial than her husband who has been a military strongman leader. As a scientist working with the military, she usually sides with the Armed Forces in its rivalry with the Commissariat of Internal Affairs. Strangely enough, the First Lady has not been very vocal about women's rights in comparison to the First Ladies in other nations. Context of gender rarely exists in her professional life and she strictly believes that her personal values are not as relevant to the public as others make them to be. Her family values are conservative and even traditionalist. Interestingly, she makes for a submissive and obedient wife at home, going in exact opposite direction to her entire image of a working woman and a leading academic.
