Bahktale is the protagonist of Rasputin Barxotka. He is also one of the characters I despise the most in the series. To perhaps gain some empathy for him and some understanding as well, I decided to do this meme.
I find it fascinating that the only portrait in which he is smiling is age five. He just does not seem like a happy guy. Another thing that surprised me was how ridiculously gorgeous he was once he hit puberty -- especially when he's an aspirant at Intelligence Training School at age 17. It's too bad he let himself go in his mid-twenties when he ended up being an irrigation supervisor rather than a fancy KGB agent.
