- Shaggy Sergei
Shaggy Sergei (also known as Serega) was a member of the Duty faction, who was captured by Bandits and held prisoner in their main base located in the Dark Valley territory. He appeared only in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl.
Shaggy Sergei is being held as prisoner in the basement of the main Bandit base located in the Dark Valley. His presence within the base will be hinted by Bullet's partner once you save him. Once you save him however he will be utterly unarmed and might be killed by the remaining bandits in the base while trying to escape, near the Dark Valley's exit, or behind the ruins near the checkpoint at the Garbage. If one is feeling generous, it's advisable to toss him a rifle and a sidearm to give him a fighting chance. Should he escape, he will return to the Duty outpost in the garbage that leads to Rostok.
- There is a character known as Serega in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky. He is a member of Freedom and a side quest requires the player to return his stolen guitar.
- Curiously, in SoC, there is a hidden guitar in the Dark Valley.
- You can give him any weapon and he walks out of the Bandit base by himself. If you want him to stay alive the best solution would be finding a cheap weapon for him and walk out of the bandit base with him. If he doesn't find any weapons he will just run off and stay an easy target for mutants or bandits.
