The Long Mars
Alexei first appeared during the events of The Long Mars, in March 2045, when Sally Linsay, who was travelling at the time with her father and Frank Wood to explore the Long Mars, was brought to Marsograd by Viktor.
He was sent to the Gap Mars to study the local life forms and how humans could live on this world but unfortunately, after the Yellowstone eruption, Datum Russia was abandonned due to the new extreme weather conditions. It is said that Moscow is under ice and polar bears wander around the Red Square now.
