Vladimir is an animal trainer from Russia and the owner of a Russian circus. He was Boskov's original owner and Boskov was his star attraction before Boskov ran away from the circus. Vladimir claims that ever since Boskov left the circus it has not been the same.
He is a large, muscular, hairy man with a long beard and mustache, and wears an archetypical Russian hat. He does not wear a shirt, exposing his hairy chest.
