History[edit | edit source]
Brezin joined the KGB in 1989 as an analyst, eventually leaving ten years later. At the same time, he joined the Moscow City Police, where, at some point, he was contacted by a longtime friend of his from the Young Pioneers, Peter Rostov, who was now a sex trafficker. Rostov wanted to know what the authorities in Moscow knew about his activities, but when Brezin refused to take bribes from him, Rostov decided to kidnap one of Brezin's daughters as insurance, letting him decide which one. Since his youngest daughter Ivana was only 14 at the time, Brezin chose the other one, Nadia, unbeknownst to her. However, Nadia eventually escaped and called Brezin, telling him she was in New York City, just before she was recaptured by Rostov, who punished her by beating and raping her.
Believing his daughter was killed by Rostov, Brezin went to New York to exact vengeance on him, and eventually poisoned his drink with ricin inside a nightclub. Though he was briefly protected by diplomatic immunity while inside the Russian embassy, Brezin was eventually arrested by Detectives Green and Cassady, as a result of a prisoner exchange with Rostov's brother and accomplice Karl. Brezin claimed that he didn't know his daughter was dead and hoped she was alive, so he didn't have a motive for killing Rostov. When the truth emerged about Brezin giving Rostov his daughter in the first place, Brezin accepted a plea bargain in which he pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter and a ten-year sentence in exchange for not revealing this to Nadia.
