General Vostok was a hard-line Siberian army general and former KGB agent who resented the former Soviet Union's abandonment of Communism. He sought to use a living golem to overthrow the Czech Republic's current government headed by President Alena Stasny, but was stopped by the Quests. Later, he weaponized Gunter Erikson's ability to freeze large amounts of water, the Bifrost Effect, using it to steal a Russian submarine, the Gagarin. He was killed when Dr. Benton Quest turned the Bifrost Effect against him; as Vostok launched torpedoes, the water around his submarine froze, preventing the torpedoes from advancing any further. The resulting explosion destroyed the Gagarin, killing Vostok.
