Wladimir is the head of the Russian secret police. He is wise, quiet and precautious. The hostile and competitive environment of his job plus the fear to reprisals forced him to be far from his wife Nuria and his little son Andriev. Until Andriev was four years old, he maintained contact with them by mail. His wife tired of having him far and without understanding his reasons to stay away decided to marry another man, Pietrov. Andriev grew up with them. Wladimir did not want to give his name to Andriev while he was at the police force academy so as not to interfere with his career. Andriev did not know Wladimir was his real father until he was 20 years old.
