Anton is a Russian Thaumaturge, who has made a binding pact with an outside entity for the purpose of gaining power and esoteric knowledge. It is generally believed that Anton was once a prominent member of the Venatori Umbrata. It is unclear how old he is, but estimates are that he is at least several hundred years old.
At some point, Anton was either influenced by or made a pact with a sinister Outside entity. At that point, he disappeared for a while, reappearing upon the death of Ivan Pilovich.
He was responsible for the creation of the Patchwork Talisman and the creation of the reconstructed Patchwork Man, once known as Ivan Pilovich. For the next decade, Anton gained power through a series of machinations. Using the Patchwork man as muscle, he became a formidable opponent.
During a fight with the Ventori, Anton lost control of his Talisman and as a result he lost control of Ivan Pilovich. Both the Talisman and Ivan were taken prisoner by the Venatori Umbrata and locked away in a repository.
Anton disappeared and has not been seen since his defeat.
The Talisman and Ivan were stolen by Cyprus Archer.
