Character Role Analysis

Vovka Sobakin and Sasha Zaichik

These guys are almost polar opposites. Vovka is loud, rash, and violent, while Sasha is quiet, careful, and calm. While both are the children of enemies of the state, they each deal with it in different ways: Vovka acts out loudly, while Sasha engages in more quiet rebellion.
