The Ural Pass
Yuri Defago is a rugged and crass outdoorsman. He has an honorary degree in zoology from Miskatonic for his discoveries and “cataloguing” of many exotic species from around the globe. He eagerly came aboard to join the other professors endeavors into Siberia as they needed someone with experience braving the wilds. He, himself, is not a professor but someone who came highly recommended to Dyatlov and Cathcart.
