- Complete Monster: The warden, General Hruschov, and his chief guard, Tolik, are the iron-fisted rulers of the Kraviva:
- General Hruschov, the sadistic warden of the Kraviva, is a man who seems dedicated only to making his prisoners suffer. Having escapees tortured or killed and allowing rampant corruption among his guards, Hruchov personally maintains what he calls the "Sparka", involving brutal fights between his chosen prisoners, often resulting in the losers killed and their bodies unceremoniously dumped into the desert. When recent prisoner Kyle LeBlanc refuses to break under Hruschov's system, Hruschov has him left to the elements and introduces him to his ace in the hole—a tortured brute of a man named Miloc— hoping for Kyle to be beaten to death to give a message to the other prisoners.
- Tolik is General Hruschov's sadistic enforcer. Allowing his prized fighter, Andrei, to rape the handsome Billy, Tolik punishes escape attempts from Billy by allowing Andrei to repeatedly assault him and eventually allows another prisoner to beat Billy so badly he bleeds to death. Angered by Kyle's defiance, Tolik puts him in a cell with an inmate known for killing his cellmates. When Kyle shows promise as a fighter, Tolik tries to order him to kill another prisoner in the Sparka. After Kyle refuses to continue fighting, Tolik happily carries out Hruschov's orders to chain him up outside in the winter.
