- "Fuck you! Are you ready to die?"
- ―Nadya Prushnatova
Nadya is a high ranking member of the Thieves in Law. She is the only female member of the gang who engages in combat. Nadya was in the military before she quit and started working for Viktor Skobel as a hired killer.
Early Life Edit
Nadya Prushnatova was born in December 1974 in Russia. She joined the military at a young age in which she developed an aggressive and violent temper. After serving in the military, she quit and became a hired contract killer. Eventually she met Viktor Skobel and became a part of his gang. She moved over to London in early 2004.
Nadya is first seen early on in the game, in the mission: Finding Miss Philips, when Levi Stratov unintentionally leads Ben Mitchell to a construction site owned by the gang. In this building, Nadya tortures journalist Jackie Philips, trying to find out exactly what she knows about the gang. When the police go in to rescue Jackie, Nadya escapes using a secret exit that they don't know about which leads through the sewers. She later attends a meeting with Viktor Skobel, Alexei and Yuri Gorsoy at Viktor's mansion. This is seen in the mission, Under Ground Activity, during the beginning cutscene.
After this, Nadya is not see again until much later, in the mission, Your Man with the Tattoo, when Eddie O'Connor follows Yuri to a factory where an arms deal is taking place between Viktor and Jamahl, the head of the Yardies. Eddie tries to kill Viktor, but Nadya shoots the gun out of Eddie's hands. They then try to kill Eddie, but Mitch and his team arrive to stop the deal from taking place. Nadya and Viktor flee the factory and make an escape in a truck parked outside. Nadya drives and Viktor tries to stop Eddie by shooting at him. Eddie chases after them and they drive back to Viktor's mansion. Eddie shoots his way through the mansion and kills many members of the gang.
Eddie eventually confronts Nadya on the rooftops of Viktor's mansion. Nadya insults Eddie while shooting two Uzi's at him, but she is eventually killed by Eddie after a brutal shootout. She then falls back through some glass, crashing into an empty room below. Eddie then chases after Viktor to finish the gang off. This happens in the mission, The Vor.
Nadya is a very angry and aggressive character. Like Yuri however, she is also pretty quiet. She does speak a few times but it is usually only insults towards her enemies, like when she tortures Jackie Philips and tries to kill Eddie O'Connor. She is the only female member of the gang but has much experience at shooting, due to the fact that she was once in the military. Jackie Philips describes her as 'the bitch'.
