Ivan grew up in a rough neighborhood in Los Angeles, the child of Russian immigrants. He got involved with a rough crowd in high school, and started breaking into places for the thrill and the easy cash for goods stolen. Got caught breaking into someplace big but his friend, Bobby, wound up taking the time, and Ivan got out of jail within a year. Unfortunately, out of jail, an ex-con, he wound up getting recruited by Mr. Black to join his crew. It turns out that Mr. Black is a Red Court vampire, which Ivan found out when Black surprised and turned him. Ivan didn’t care for this at all and during one of the next jobs, he grabbed the goods and ran for it, never to go near LA (and hopefully Mr. Black) again. Since then, he’s been a lot more careful in his planning but not always careful enough.

After a short while, he wound up in San Francisco and connected with Patch. Ivan’s eyes had been opened to the supernatural by his vamp experience and he heard that the Fae had goods worth taken. With the help of Patch, he broke into a palace of the Summer Court and stole some jewelry. In mid-job, Ivan, Patch and others ran into the Fae though. One of Ivan’s crew and friends, Joanne Hartford, didn’t quite make it through the portal out of the Never Never, being grabbed by the Fae. Ivan has heard rumors that they didn’t kill her, though he assumed she was dead for a long time. He’s known Path for the 25 years since this job, occasionally working with him on jobs as he continually tries to resist the cravings to drain someone to death.

Something something something about Nate and the White Council, specifically a Warden. I don’t remember the details here.
