Alex Rider Wiki

That's Professor Yermalov, he taught me while I was here. You don't want to get on the wrong side of him, Alex. I've seen him finish a fight with a single finger. Fast as a snake and about as friendly...

—Nile describing Yermalov to Alex

Yermalov is a minor antagonist in Scorpia.


Yermalov is in his fifties and originates from Chechnya, and he is known to be dangerous. He is the least friendly staff member at Malagosto; scowling and silent, with little time for anyone. He lost his entire family in the war with Russia.
