Dragonsky became a hero of the Soviet Union at an early age, as he fought
for Stalingrad at the age of five. He continued fighting for his county,
eventually becoming an early member of the Oktober Guard. On one of his
first missions, he fought to keep a laser cannon out of Cobra and GI Joe
hands in Afghanistan, although the Joes ultimately retrieved the weapon.
Later, he was part of a mission to place a communist dictator in charge
of a Far East country, although the plan failed when the dictator was killed
in a firefight with the Iron Grenadiers.
The flamethrower, along with teammate Daina, survived an ill-fated mission
in Sierra Gordo that involved the deaths of the rest of the Oktober Guard.
Together, the two survivors formed the core of the new Oktober Guard, whose
first mission involved teaming up with the Joes to advise rebels in Sierra
Gordo. It was a failure from the start, but with the help of Tucaro Indians
and GI Joe reinforcements, the group made it out alive. After the breakup
of the U.S.S.R., Dragonsky convinced Daina to stay with the team.
