- Known for being completely oblivious to how well-loved and widely respected he is.
- known for occasionally adding ridiculous nicknames to his friends' OP entries. One of these earned him the moniker Дядя Володя надоедливый (Dyadya Volodya Nadoyedlivyy - Uncle Vlad the Annoying). But we love him anyway.
"Greeting Unto Their Majesties, Christian and Helene, undoubted King and Queen of AnTir, Their Royal Highnesses, Savaric and Dalla, Heirs to the Sable Lion Thrones, and to the Members of the Order of the Pelican, from Countess Melissa Kendal of Westmoreland,
Your Majesties, Your Highnesses, Noble Masters and Mistresses,
I come before you to talk about Your subject, Vladimir Andreivich Aleksandrov. Others will speak of the ways Vladimir has served Yourselves, Your kingdom and Your people. I have been asked to speak about his service as a constable.
Both my husband and myself spent many years working with Vlad as a constable. We relied on his wisdom, his calm, his discretion, and his ability to be where a situation was occurring quietly until his voice was needed. He was one of the most reliable constables in Tir Righ, and in fact in all of AnTir. We never had to intervene in a situation that Vlad had taken on. His very demeanour imputed calm to those around him, often in the most tense situations. We never had to worry that Vlad would spread word of the details of a situation. He was always the soul of discretion, His lips were closed, except to those of his superiors who had to know. Often I have spent many evenings walking a site and run into Vlad who was also keeping us safe. I miss working with him very much.
Your Majesties, Your Highnesses, I would be filled with joy if you decide to ask Vladimir to join the ranks of the Order of the Pelican. In my mind, he has been a peer for many years.
At Your Service and in Your Service, Melissa"
Knowing that she wrote these words on my behalf will never fail to make me tear up. - Vlad
