A Shadow of Doubt
A womanizing, bespectacled chain-smoking Russian with a secretive past.
Tall, loud, in good physical shape, and very informal; Arkady comes off as more of a screw-off then a serious agent of the RPA. Arkady says he did some unimportant intelligence work before being assigned to the RPA after angering his superiors. Whatever his reason for being in the RPA Melnikov seems to be more interested in pursuing women then actually doing hard work.
