Mikhail Abramov was born in Moscow in 1971. A member of Gabriel Allon's Team, and the son of a pair of dissident scientists, Mikhail had come to Israel as a teenager in 1991, within weeks of the Soviet Union's collapse. He had joined the Office, after serving with the Sayeret Matkal. He was once described by Shamron as, "Gabriel without a conscience."
Key Events Edit
The Messenger Edit
The Secret Servant Edit
Mikhail killed the driver of the van transporting Gabriel Allon. He was going to kill Ishaq Fawaz, but Gabriel intervened and killed him himself. He worked with Gabriel to kill the two shaheeds on Christmas day.
Moscow Rules Edit
Mikhail was sent to Ukraine to collect Gabriel after Gabriel was expelled from Russia; he accompanied Gabriel home on an El Al flight. Gabriel assigned Mikhail and Sarah Bancroft to play the part of a couple. At the right moment, Mikhail met Elena Kharkov and took her off to feign having a short affair, thereby allowing Gabriel Allon time to recruit Elena to work against her husband, Ivan Kharkov. After the "affair," Mikhail and Sarah appeared to fight and left the Saint-Tropez area separately.
The Defector Edit
Gabriel told Mikhail he should end his service to Israel and go to the United States with Sarah and be happy; he also told Ari Shamron that he should hire Sarah if she married Mikhail.
Mikhail and Sarah spent their summer holiday together.
The Rembrandt Affair Edit
Mikhail played the part of a rich Russian businessman. He made a contribution (using Office money) to a charitable fund favored by Martin Landesmann. This provided justification for him to accompany Zoe Reed to a party at Landesmann's mansion in Geneva, Switzerland. While there, he slipped away and entered Landesmann's office, where he installed software on Landesmann's computer to transfer the contents of the hard drive to the joint Israeli/U.S./British control center. He was caught, beaten severely and interrogated until Gabriel Allon won his freedom by showing documents to Landesmann that revealed Landesmann's business dealings with Iran.
