Colonel Titanya KrushenkoAge:
Titanya's parents were peasant workers in a factory in St Petersburg when she was born. A year later her father went to war, came back missing an arm. He was lucky. Her mother worked hard to support the famoly, but when the revolution swept the country, both Titanya's parents joined the Bolshevik party.
Her mother became very active and her father did what he could with one arm. During the civil war, he became commissar to an infantry regiment, while his wife was put in charge of the factory she had formerly been little more than a slave at. Titanya's father was killed fighting the Ukranian Nationalists in 1919.
Titanya excelled in school, and was recruited into the NKVD, where she rose slowly through the ranks of the Leningrad branch, denounced her own mother as an enemy of the People when in 1936 the shoe factory failed to meet it's quota for the third time.
During WWII she was still based in Leningrad when the Germans besieged the city. She received the Award Of Lenin for her part in the defense of the city and was promoted to Major. Her military experience meant she qualified for Spetsnaz training and she excelled at this with a certain ruthlessness, becoming Company Commander for a covert operations unit. After the war, when the NKVD was split up, she remained with the GRU's Spetsnaz units.
When the Honey-trap school was being set up, the people at the top identified a need for a woman instructor who could teach the girls how to seduce other women. Someone, as a joke, suggested Comrade Krushenko. But the Soviet system does not recognise jokes, the suggestion was taken seriously, and Titanya found herself reassigned and promoted to Colonel.
To everyone's surprise, including her own, she has taken to the role like a duck to water!
