Doctor Orlov was introduced to Crypto by Sergei in Tunguska. Orlov worked on Project Solaris until he saw "strange things," which meant the Blisk. Crypto rescued him when his cabin was attacked by the KGB and the Army. After he was rescued by Crypto, Orlov informed Crypto that he had worked on a weapon to defeat the Blisk. Crypto then found it in Science Town and was able to destroy the Blisk. After he killed the Blisk in Tunguska, Crypto rescued Orlov from the KGB Base and returned him to a cabin by the Frozen Lake. Orlov was mentioned briefly in Scan.
