Little is known about Galena Golovin's past - but she was an Winter Olympics Gold Medal winner in the biathlon in the 1980s. She seems to have spent most of her military career as a Spetznaz elite commando, and proved herself in the field in Chechnya by succeeding in several difficult missions to sanction enemy leaders. If her file was selected for the same reasons as other Team Achilles members, her past probably includes an hostile encounter (or several encounters) with hostile superhumans.
Galena was called into action three weeks before the new UN Stormwatch unit was to become active - her commander, Benito Santini, requested her on active duty as the UN building was under siege. After establishing that the Englishman, Charles Pinckney, she had met at the hotel the previous evening and was sleeping with also happened to be her future spotter, she liberated hardware from StormWatch stocks and killed the two super-terrorists outside.
Golovin and her spotter, Charles Pinckney, have continued their relationship after StormWatch became active. The sniper team has been very successful, and has managed to survive all engagements.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
Golovin is a crack soldier from the redoubtable Russian Spetznaz units. She is a world-class sniper - quite a few of her field kills are miracle shots performed at an extreme range. She practically never misses.
Although her MOS is sniping, she is a fully-trained Spetznaz commando with skills in small arms, long range patrolling, military intelligence, close combat, vehicular operation, etc. She is also very stubborn, and has demonstrated a remarkable resilience to psychic domination; it is very likely she was specifically trained in telepathic resistance by Russian specialists. And, of course, she is quite resilient to alcohol.
Galena is extremely perceptive - not only is her vision perfect, but she also has keen hearing. She often makes perception rolls for no reason whatsoever, just out of general wariness - this is how she can spot invisible characters.
