Shurik Barkov was a Russian chess player. He was born in 1943.

The Soviets tricked British intelligence in 1965 into believing that Shurik was psychic and wanted to defect with his sister Anya. In fact, Anya was the psychic and had been turned into a "psychic bomb". Her activation almost started riots in London, but they were stopped when she was shot. In revenge, Sir Toby Kinsella left Shurik to starve to death in a locked room. (AUDIO: Peshka) He was being experimented on. He was used in Allison Williams, Ian Gilmore and Toby's escape. (AUDIO: The Keep)
