Dmitry is a very tall musclear man with a light crew cut, a beard and blue eyes. He wears a sleeveless Telnyashka with a brown trench coat, camo pants and combat boots.


Though vervent and dedicated to his military duties, Brondukov is a brave and honorable soldier willing to die for the sake of his men.


Heishi NishikoriEdit

The first time he met Heishi was in a street fight with a bunch of thugs. Dmitry  was very impressed with the boy's fighting style and agressiveness that he began teaching him in the  of tactics of the Spetsnaz. Durring his time in Japan, Heishi began to remind him of his son Yuri, while Heishi began to look at Brondukov as a father. Despite the close relationship between the two, both of them understood they will fight on opposite sides of the battlefield and would have to kill each other.

Andrei KondratievEdit

Dmitry's best friend as well as his second in command in the Crimson Bears. The two share a similar code of ethics and have known eachother for a long time.

Anton MyagkovEdit

Brondukov (aside from Kondratiev) is the only Soviet officer that dosen't fear Anton and the only that was able to control him. The colonel on the other hand feels contempt for his superior for not fearing him as well as being too "soft". Despite the negative relationship between the two officers, Brondukov begrudgingly considered him to be one of the best operatives in the Crimson Bears, despite his brutal and unethical methods.
