Oleg is a former KGB agent.[5] Standing around 8 feet tall and extremely muscular, he is not only physically strong but also very intelligent.


Oleg is a tall, muscular man of Russian descent, with thick brown eyebrows and blue eyes. After being rescued by the Saints,[6] he wears a white vest with a purple undershirt bearing the Saints fleur de lis on the left breast area, grey pants, black boots, and a silver ring in his index finger.

In Saints Row The Third Remastered, Oleg's in-game appearance more closely resembles his appearance in promotional art. He is thinner, and his vest and pants has been recolored to beige and brown respectively. The Saints undershirt's colors are darker, and he has more body hair.[6]

Saints Row: The Third[]

He was held captive for several years by The Syndicate, who sought to make use of his immense strength and knowledge.[6] 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 Playa, Pierce, and Shaundi locate and kill Phillipe Loren.[6]

After Viola DeWynter helps the Saints with locating intel of a cargo boat containing Morningstar hos.[7], Oleg and Playa meet with her and are ambushed by STAG. The three flee to Technically Legal and fight their way into the rooftop. During battle, Oleg hops into a F-69 VTOL in an attempt to bring it down.[8]

During STAG's occupation of Steelport, Oleg aids the Saints in fighting against the paramilitary organization, including creating a diversion in Sunset Park as Playa steals an F-69 VTOL,[9] ambushing STAG in the Saints HQ,[10] and helping Playa and Pierce clear out areas where STAG and the Luchadores are fighting.[11]

Over the course of the Saints occupation of Steelport, Oleg and Pierce play chess several times. The games are never culminate in a winner because something always disturbs the board. The first time[9] Playa kicks the table, then Oleg drops a bag on the game[10] and finally a VTOL crashes into the penthouse.[11]

Saints Row IV[]

When Playa becomes President, Oleg becomes his head of security. As Playa walks towards the press conference, Oleg kicks an obsessed fan to the ground.[12] When the Zin invade Earth, he and Josh Birk escape invasion. Later, as they share a drink at the Broken Shillelagh,[13] 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.[14]

Saints Row Gat out of Hell[]

Oleg appears in the final storybook of the game, he is in the picture playing volleyball along with Gat, Kinzie, Lin, Josh, and Dane.[15]


Oleg is unlocked as a Homie after The Belgian Problem. He is driven in a Saints Criminal by a random Saints member. In battle, Oleg mostly performs melee attacks and takedowns on enemies, but can also pick up any Temporary Weapons dropped by a Brute.
