The following is a Dramatis Personae (list of characters) for the Cold War Universe setting.
A note about non-Slavic Soviet names:
It is a legal requirment - and a common practice, although not a universally adhered to law - that all Soviet citizens must have a patronymic (a 'middle' name identifying the bearer's paternal lineage, for example: Vladimirovich, son of Vladimir). As such, most non-Slavic, especially Chinese, persons in the USSR have a third name that would not normally be there in conventional naming practices of their culture. I.e. Líu Qui Qui (the second 'Qui' indicates that his father's personal name was also Qui).
For most non-Slavic Soviet citizens, the Patronymic is only used on official documents which have bearing outside of their own Republic (i.e. on a Union-wide level) and in very formal contexts.
