Alexander Block (Александр Блок) is the Commander of the Western Army.

Description[edit | edit source]

A character inspired by Antonius Block from The Seventh Seal, Alexander is fairly young for his rank—a “thirty-year-old general”. The country’s military top brass really is pushing him to join their conspiracy, while the powers that be seek to tarnish his reputation. Block is strung out, his nerves are frayed, and his heart, already hardened. He’s trying to keep his feelings to himself and especially to prevent his emotional instability from claiming a random victim. Nevertheless, his nervous tension takes its toll, and by the time the Gorkhon operation begins, he is already on edge, about to snap any moment.

Alexander Block (Александр Блок). The General, Commander of the Western army, and the draftsman of the military reform which improved the effectiveness of the Army to the prejudice of the ruling top's interest. Some speak of him as an honest and noble man, and a true knight. Others mention his brutality and ruthlessness.

Pathologic: The Marble Nest[edit | edit source]

Spoiler warning: Significant plot details follow.
It is revealed by a sentry that Block perished from the Plague prior to the events of Pathologic: The Marble Nest and was succeeded by Captain Longin. It's also rumored that rather than succumb to the Plague, the Commander ultimately hung himself with a tourniquet noose. However, given the nature of The Marble Nest, it is not clear if this is the true fate of the Commander.
Significant plot details end here.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • In the original English translation of the game, his name was written as "Alexander Blok."
  • The appearance of The General belongs to Peter Potapov, Ice-Pick Lodge's Technical Director.
