Nikolai is a private in the Arctic Forces guarding Oblask Dam.
After hearing gunshots in the lower levels of the facility, he goes to explore the underground labs with Sgt. Shivers. They encounter a zombified soldier, who kills them both. He later appears as a standard zombie in the area where he was killed.
Nikolai has the distinction as being the only member of the Arctic Forces (as well as the Military characters as a whole) to be given a name rather than a title.
- The Zombie that kills Nikolai in the opening cutscene to Siberia appears to be his undead counterpart Private Poorly, minus the Beret.
- In the later part of the campaign mission, both Nikolai and Sgt Shivers corpses can be found in the digsite. However, once the system disk has been installed, they will rise from the dead to attack you like all the other zombies.
