|Saints Row: The Third|
|Saints Row IV|
Oleg is a former KGB agent. Standing around 8 feet tall and extremely muscular, he is not only physically strong but also also very intelligent.
Saints Row: The ThirdEdit
He was held captive for several years by The Syndicate, who sought to make use of his immense strength and knowledge. From a top-secret cloning facility at the Syndicate Tower, they used him as a master pattern to create the brutes. The clones produced are super-strong, but they lack the intelligence of Oleg. After being rescued, Oleg helps The Protagonist, Pierce, and Shaundi locate and kill Phillipe Loren. After this, he joins the Saints, helping them in various missions and as a homie. Over the course of the Saints occupation of Steelport, Oleg and Pierce are seen playing chess. The games are never culminate in a winner because something always disturbs the board. The first time The Protagonist kicks the table, then Oleg drops a bag on the game and finally a VTOL crashes into the penthouse.
Saints Row IVEdit
When The Protagonist becomes President, Oleg becomes the President's head of security. Early on Oleg is seen defending him from an obsessed fan by kicking him away. When the Zin invade Earth, he and Josh Birk escape invasion. Later, as they share a drink at the Broken Shillelagh, Kinzie attempts to call Oleg to mount a counterattack against the Zin, but he dismisses her call as a telemarketer because he does not recognize the number. He and Josh are both killed when Zinyak blows up the Earth.
