Masaliyev was known as the Red Eagle during the 1980s and early 1990s when he was part of the often violent incarnation of CLAW.  Not much was known of his past and generally during those times no one thought to ask questions.  Red Eagle was a bloodthirsty killer who operated across Europe and particularly within Russia at the behest of Steel Claw.  When Steel Claw was usurped, Masaliyev was one of the many mercenaries who fled the new CLAW, taking the opportunity to start their own criminal organisations or solo careers.  CLAW didn't allow many of the former members escape without some kind of payment - whether it be regular financial payments to CLAW, unique franchise opportunities whereby the mercenaries operated on their own but under the general umbrella of CLAW, or more frequently they paid with their lives (or limbs).

Masaliyev was hospitalised in 1998 after a lethal scrap with Cat Scratch Fever.  His artificial wings were torn from his body and his claw hand was severed, leaving him haemorrhaging in a back alley in Moscow.  He was in hospital for several months before being transferred to prison under the supervision of the Russian FSB.  During his incarceration Masaliyev was given a pardon for his crimes and forced to undertake some training with the FSB which is where he met another native of Kyrgyzstan: Snow Leopard.  The two men took an instant dislike to each other, something which was exacerbated when Snow Leopard and Masaliyev were cast out of the training regime after the FSB decided to recruit Taiga for the new Russian Dawn team.  Snow Leopard and Masaliyev returned to Kyrgyzstan where they were embroiled in a public fight, the end of which saw Snow Leopard disappear from the public eye for a time, and saw Masaliyev again hospitalised.

In a hospital bed far away from prying eyes, Masaliyev found himself close to death and without much prospects of survival.  He had a series of fever dreams where he ventured into a land full of demons and sinners.  He saw his future there, amongst the damned, but at the same time he realised that many of the damned were only there through the actions of others.  Far too often people were forced into crime, or were witnesses to actions which condemned them to damnation.  In his dreams he stood against the demons and fought for the souls of those women and children who were dragged into damnation by their murderous husbands or brothers.  He fought for the sons of men who had sinned.

When he awoke from the dreams he discovered that the hospital was actually being drawn into another dimension.  His dreams were manifestations of the Deathless Ones and their attempt to drag the hospital into their native dimension.  Masaliyev left his bed and began to stalk through the corridors.  Nurses, doctors and patients were screaming while the demonic Deathless Ones spirited through the hospital causing panic and fear.

Masaliyev confronted the demons and with his bare hand set about strangling them and casting aside their broken bodies.  As he worked systematically to destroy the infestation, he came to realise that although his own spiritual self was damaged he could do so much to help spare the misery of others.  The Deathless Ones hoped to drag parts of the Earth into their realm by degrading the lives of ordinary humans, by emphasising the sordid crimes and the petty passions of humans.

After fighting for nearly a full day and night, the Deathless Ones turned away, perhaps because they hade found what they were looking for or perhaps because Masaliyev had forced their retreat.  It didn't really matter.  Masaliyev stumbled out into the night and swore to keep the demons at bay.

He launched several attacks against known CLAW weapons depots and outfitted himself with artificial wings and a blunt artificial hand.  He called himself Berkutchi, revealing his family's tradition of eagle hunting.  Ever since his reappearance as a vigilante, he has worked tirelessly to eradicate organised crime from the streets of Kyrgyzstan.

He has come into regular conflict with Snow Leopard and the Black Lotus Society.


Berkutchi is a vigilante who not only breaks laws, he rarely gives them any thought at all.  He has been a ruthless hired killer in the past and has only changed slightly.  Rather than kill for money he is now killing to avoid condemning innocents to a life in Hell.  He believes that he is condemned to be punished eternally for his crimes and does not shy away from this gloomy prospect.  Instead he believes that while he is certain to be punished, he is also able to punish other evil-doers and has dedicated his doomed existence to eradicating as much diseased and debilitating organised crime syndicates as he can.  He will punish any criminal, but is particularly ruthless when hunting killers.

Masaliyev is known to the world as the former Red Eagle, and although he believes he is a changed man, many people regard him as dangerous as ever.  Russian Dawn actively seek to arrest him whenever he enters Russia's territory and the law enforcement agencies of Kyrgyzstan try their best to restrain his actions.  The criminals he hunts are also active in trying to kill him, but Berkutchi has proven a very difficult man to kill.


"There is no excuse for murder.  And only one punishment." (translated from Kyrgyz as he has very limited English)


Masaliyev has been operating as a mercenary for over twenty years and began his career in the employ of CLAW.  His body was enhanced with cybernetics over a decade, beginning with crude technology but quickly becoming more powerful and subtle.  His right hand was either surgically removed by CLAW or was lost in some other way prior to his employment, but since his first days as Red Eagle his left hand has sported a three-pronged claw.  He has replaced this claw with a club since changing his outlook on life.  He believes there is something more cleansing in bashing a person to death rather than slicing them.

Other cybernetic enhancements include enhanced vision and hearing, subdermal plating which provides resistance to most forms of injury, reinforced muscles in his arms, torso and legs to provide greater strength, and a whip snare: a thin but strong wire which can be pulled out of his wrists and used to ensnare opponents.

His wings were originally used for flight only, but since stealing more advanced technology he has shaped these wings to become a lethal weapon as well.  The versatile and flexible wings are able to propel him through the air at high speeds, as well as strike out at opponents with razor-sharp edges.


Masaliyev has a shaved head and thick black moustache.  He appears to be in his forties, although his aging has been retarded and his true age is closer to the mid-fifties.  He wears a black costume with red around the collar and arms, and a grey belt bordered in red.  He has an inverted golden triangle on his chest and a mirror-image one on his belt buckle.  His right arm has been replaced by a heavy club decorated with obscure symbols which come from the Deathless Ones' dimension and appeared to Masaliyev in his fever dream..
