[[folder:Steiner]]
!!Steiner Bogdanow

->'''Portrayed By:''' Christian Oliver

A Russian mobster who also happens to be Wolfgang's cousin.
----
* BaldOfEvil: Steiner doesn't have a single hair on his head or a single moral in his body.
* BigBrotherBully: He has this dynamic with Wolfgang, though technically they're cousins. However they were raised together after Wolfgang's father died, so Steiner is more like a (terrible) brother than a cousin.
* GanglandDriveBy: [[spoiler:This is how he shoots and nearly kills Felix]].
* HairTriggerTemper: His self-control is practically non-existent. There's not a single scene with him in which he doesn't threaten, insult, or shout at someone.
* {{Jerkass}}: He's a violent, vulgar, and all-around unpleasant thug.
* LargeHam: Tends to deliver his lines in an over-the-top manner, often accompanied by similarly [[MilkingTheGiantCow melodramatic hand gestures.]] Actor Christian Oliver clearly has a lot of fun with his role.
* OhCrap: He has an appropriately epic reaction to [[spoiler:Wolfgang shooting a rocket at him.]]
* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: He makes a few homophobic comments when Lito in Wolfgang's body lies to him about how they obtained the diamonds. For bonus points, Lito is a ''gay man'' (although Steiner's unaware of his presence).
* SirSwearsALot: His speech is riddled with obscenities.
* SmugSnake: Steiner thinks he is far more clever than he is. Wolfgang shows him up from their first conflict.
* TattooedCrook: His bald head lets him display his [[TattooAsCharacterType neck tattoo]] of the Virgin Mary holding a gun.

[[folder:Sergei]]
!!Sergei Bogdanow

->'''Portrayed by''': Sylvester Groth

Wolfgang's paternal uncle and father to Steiner, seemingly the head of the organized crime unit Wolfgang works in.
----
* AintTooProudToBeg: [[spoiler:When Wolfgang comes to kill him, Sergei desperately tries to bargain for his life, first by apologizing for ignoring the abuse Wolfgang was subjected to as a child, then by offering him money. It doesn't save him]].
* AffablyEvil: In stark contrast to his thuggish son, Sergei is unfailingly polite in his interactions with Wolfgang.
* BoomHeadshot: [[spoiler:The cause of his death, although it's not a single shot, but a whole magazine worth of bullets. The result isn't a pretty sight.]]
* CrazyPrepared: [[spoiler:Wears a bulletproof vest ''at home''. Wolfgang immediately [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] how unlikely this is]].
* EtTuBrute: [[spoiler: Sergei is genuinely horrified when Wolfgang betrays him and admits to killing Steiner and his own father]].
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: He obviously cares deeply about Steiner and has stated that he wants nothing more than to get revenge for whoever killed his brother (Wolfgang's father).
* EvenEvilHasStandards: He may be a ruthless mobster, but he draws the line at killing family members. [[spoiler:He is accordingly shocked when Wolfgang confesses that he killed both Steiner and his own father]].
* LikeASonToMe: Implied as much; Sergei tells Wolfgang that he doesn't want to choose between Steiner and Wolfgang (who does not reciprocate the feeling).
* TheMafiya: A high-ranking member of the Russian mob in Berlin.
* ManOfWealthAndTaste: He lives in a huge, opulently furnished mansion, smokes fine cigars, and wears expertly tailored bespoke suits.
* MultipleGunshotDeath: [[spoiler: Wolfgang riddles him with bullets to prove to Kala that he's a terrible person]].
* SoftspokenSadist: He rarely raises his voice, which only makes him more threatening.
* VillainousBreakdown: [[spoiler:Once it dawns on him that Wolfgang killed Steiner, his self-control rapidly fades, until he's firing wildly at Wolfgang while screaming in rage and grief]].
* WickedCultured: Seems to be a lover of the fine arts, judging by the numerous paintings in his mansion.
