Legionnaire Profiles – Michael Strogoff

Michael Strogoff

After valiantly thwarting a traitorous coup against the Tsar of Russia, this brave and burly Cossack found himself hired as Phileas Fogg’s guide through Siberia during Fogg’s fifth world tour. Fogg was impressed with Strogoff’s strength, bravery, and drinking prowess! He quickly hired the Russian as a staff bodyguard and Chief Messenger.

Strogoff and Legion Fantastique’s Chief Security Officer, Agent John Strock, have, on many occasions, thwarted several attempts of sabotage and assassination at the hands of agents from the Tong of the Black Scorpion. These two men, Strock and Strogoff, have become a force to be reckoned with as Legion Fantastique’s “fighting force”. Strogoff’s strength is formidable, and has been utilized in the most astonishing ways (he is rumored to have single-handedly fought a bear)! He is a tough, yet jolly fellow, who has brought a much-need joviality to the halls of Legion.

There have been rumors, that during Strogoff’s service to the Tsar of Russia, he was blinded with a hot poker. This was merely rumor spread by the forces behind the coup. Although Strogoff has insisted that losing his eyesight would be a small price to pay for his service to his homeland, his powers of observation have not been diminished in any way.

A little known fact about Strogoff – he loves to wager as much as Phileas Fogg. They have, on several occasions, challenged one another to “last-man-standing” drinking competitions. So far, they remain in a dead heat on victories…but Strogoff is confident he will find the right vodka to topple the unflappable Phileas Fogg!
