Headcanon

Born December 14, 1942, while Ukraine was under Nazi control. As a young officer, Brekhov often worked as a mercenary while on official leave (with the knowledge of his superiors) and on one occasion saved the life of the original G.I. Joe agent, Joseph B. Colton. In 1980, Col. Brekhov established and led the Oktober Guard as a counter-terrorist force to confront the threat of Cobra. His appearance is represented by Version 2.

COLONEL BREKHOV is the distinguished commander of the OKTOBER GUARD, the Soviet counterpart to the American G.I. Joe Team (although he maintains that the G.I. Joe Team is the American counterpart of the Oktober Guard). Brekhov has spent his entire adult life in service to his country, but he's by no means a flunky of the Soviet hierarchy, spouting party line at every opportunity. He genuinely cares about the welfare of the Soviet Union and its people, and feels that the best way he can serve them is to be the best soldier and commander possible. He is a superb strategist and fearless in battle. His tactical mind is not above setting aside political differences to occasionally team the Oktober Guard with the G.I. Joe Team to overcome the far greater threat posed by COBRA.
From General Hawk's Files: "Brekhov is what some would call an 'old war-horse.' The military is his life and it's really all he knows. He's the quintessential Soviet soldier through and through, and has no great love for Americans. But he hates COBRA even more. I can respect an attitude like that."

A tough, cigar-chomping veteran with a no-nonsense, no apologies style, COLONEL BREKHOV is the distinguished commander of the OKTOBER GUARD, a Russian counterpart to the G.I. Joe Team (although he maintains that the OKTOBER GUARD [sic] is the American counterpart to the OKTOBER GUARD). COLONEL BREKHOV has spent his entire adult life in military service. He genuinely cares about the welfare of his country and its people, and he feels that the best way he can serve them is to be the best soldier and commander possible. He is a superb strategist and is fearless in battle. His tactical mind is not above setting aside political differences to occasionally team the OKTOBER GUARD with the G.I. Joe Team to overcome the far greater threat posed by the COBRA organization.
"COLONEL BREKHOV is what some would call an 'old war-horse.' The military is all he knows, but that makes him a superb soldier."
