Oleg and Rosie over ideology, you mean? because i have a project in the works right now that would answer that question ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

[okay, I have no self control, I’ll give you a clue: it’s empathy. Oleg discovers some things about Rosie that he’s been through himself, and it tears down barriers to empathy that he’d put up because of her class. he starts to realize his own worldview is not objective, and develops cognitive dissonance with some of his ironclad beliefs.]

ROSIE + OLEG'S POLITICS 8)

SR3 gives us that Oleg is pro-communist.

i’ve talked about how I think this is because of a handful of things. KGB training was thick and unsubtle with ideological inculcation. the operatives who made it as high as Oleg clearly did would’ve had to prove that their loyalty was extreme. on top of that, Oleg has a classical education. my Russian professor told me that oftentimes admittance to Soviet universities required some indication that your politics were “agreeable.” lastly, in Asha’s SR4 audio logs - which were first meant to be Oleg’s - we see a patriotic father, one whom Oleg admired and likely tried to emulate. in my own headcanon I put this father on the Politburo, but he could’ve been any one of a number of things.

[edit: I’m told that Asha’s audio logs just replaced Oleg’s in space, not content. they still work for him, though, so I see no harm in going with it.]

the sum of all this is that Oleg had the favor of the state, and a life of luxury for it. it’s really easy to like and be uncritical of a regime that has made you that comfortable. which is a lot of analysis for something that was probably intended to be a jokey stereotype, but, hey, it’s Oleg. in for a penny, in for a pound.

and Oleg’s line of thinking drives Rosie out of her mind, because she grew up 180 degrees from him. Rosie was born poor to poor people that had been poor forever, and no matter which way the power shifted, her family continued to starve.

this lead Rosie to the belief that politics is a lose-lose game. she’s sick of all of it. the poor will suffer whether they’re made false promises or ignored, and politicians are corrupt no matter how well they act otherwise. the only way to survive is to take the power you can get - which led her at sixteen into organized crime. the thieves took her contempt for authority and made it law, so when she figures out that Oleg’s ex-KGB… well, you can imagine.

[they figure it out. but it takes a long time.]

FINE ART BY LESLIE
on rosie’s first day in stilwater, she met an old immigrant barber, who helped her learn english and navigate her new world. a man who’d lost his son in the soviet war in afghanistan, he welcomed her youth in his life - even though he knew who she’d been and saw who she became.
when the saints got big, she made sure he’d never want for money again. he was the grandfather she’d never had. on top of, y’know, giving the best haircut in town.

"kirrlova is a shitty last name for me," rosie says between mimosa sips. "it doesn’t work with what else i have"

"you never told me your real name." but oleg’s ears prick up for it

"well it’s shit," rosie answers. "eat your breakfast"

[Doyle leans over the back of her stupid huge chair once or twice, arms dangling over the sides like an overripe tomato that’s about to fall and ruin your day. “You should just change his last name to McLargehuge. It will solve every single one of your problems.”]

"the kirrlovs are a proud family," oleg grumbles. "my father would be ashamed”

rosie picks up her fork. “your father’s dead, old man”
