Background[edit | edit source]
He was the first conscious victim of the Wraith (he had previously and unknown to him killed people in the car compactor).
Most of his background is unknown; he probably ran a hitman service as seen in the Wraith's lore, and bribes cops to hide his dark business. He was murdered by Philip in a fit of rage after finding out he used him to carry out his executions.
He is mostly known for being one of the big reasons the Wraith exists in the first place. Presumably, Azarov's head and spinal cord were pulled right out of his body after being crushed within a compactor by Philip before fleeing the scene. Eventually, the Wraith converted Azarov's skull and spine into a wicked scythe. The Wraith now uses a blade protruding from the skull to hit and kill Survivors.
