Pavel Appreciation Thread

Recommended Posts

I love this guy.  Not just because he's a bad ass Russian, but for the first time, he's a really great NPC companion.

 

Never rude.

ACTUALLY is helpful.

Takes a tiny percentage cut from the heists.

Always jovial and amusing.

Not annoying.

Encourages the hunting of MKII losers.

Calls you Kapitan and respects you.

Eats beans from a massive cooking pot.

Gives no fs when smoking in the Torpedo bay.

 

We salute you, Pavel!

Agreed. For the first time in a long while Rockstar have created a character with a personality, rather than a meme/cliché that grates from the moment you meet them.

After years of putting up with Lester's constant screeching, I have to say that Pavel is definitely one of the best, if not the best side character my character had to interact with. He seems like a cool guy to hang out with, and I truly appreciate how respectful he is.

I paid attention to him when he started telling his old stories between missions, too bad the joke is that he never finishes them. 🤭

Admittedly at a basic level, I found Bogdan a bit irritating but not Pavel. Both characters were fundamentally competent but I think the laughs with Pavel are more dry sense of humour, where as Bogdans felt more slapstick and cheap gags centred on his pigeon English.

He's great because he's on the same page/level as our character.

 

He does not have any hidden agenda or ulterior motives, he just wants to make money, have fun and see his pride and joy live upto her full potential.

He is also complimenting you for the last prep you finished. So I met him at the control centre in the sub and heard him saying:" Good job at the construction site kapitan." Wow man... my heart started to melt.

I like the "masterclass in reconnaissance" comment. Even compliments your tan :D

Seen the Sub intro three times and him singing and smacking the door still makes me laugh. I love slapstick humour and the fact he does not even give any f*cks about him being weird makes it even funnier. Its also humanising, if you work with something for lng enough you learn its intricacies and it being weird and you being weird around it does not bother you.

Also, the "touch this button...and we all die" gets good belly laugh from me.

Pavel is a good NPC but I also don't understand why Lester is so hated. Is it because so many gamers see themselves in Lester --fat, balding, socially awkward-- and hate that the game puts up this mirror to them? After all, works of fiction with anti-heroes are generally less popular, at least until people start to identify with the anti-hero for the wrong reasons (e.g. Holden Caulfield in Catcher In The Rye, Travis Bickle in Taxi Driver, Walter White in Breaking Bad). Pavel as a character is very light on irony outside of the Russian stereotype.

His voice, his annoying personality, the fact he talks down to our character who could break him with a thought and they can't do anything about it, the fact he screams at you all the time, does none of the actual work, he's overused, his annoying phone calls as "LJT" and the fact he's a bitch.

I'd say he isn't eating beans, but it might be Red Caviar. He keeps talking about that diet sometimes.

 

I've stolen so many Sinsimito Tequilas I wish I could pop one open for him and share it along with some of that red caviar.

Honestly, Mini Madrazo and Pavel are the nicest characters to our characters. It's crazy to think after so many years they finally put a character in for characters to befriend.

Yes, I also thought it is caviar because it actually comes in cans like the one he is holding, including the red rubber to keep out air:

I felt bad that Pavel hasn't had any celebrations during Christmas or New Year's Eve.

Russians celebrate New Year like Christmas - and i felt the submarine interior needs a festive decoration, like the Avenger.

Was boomed about Bogdan being left out of this (when he was the obvious choice to begin with), but Pavel is a nice replacement. Very cool guy👍;)

An equivalent to "still waters run deep" - literally translated as "in still waters, devils dwell"

 

Also, i'm still impressed by the mariners swear skill and how to put a 5 minute long swear tirade in completely civil language, while explaining to former bunkmate that trading his ceremonial dagger and chronometer for vodka was absolutely unacceptable, at the same time finding out its whereabouts.

That, and basic carpentry skills, thanks WO uncle Peter.

Pavel is great, but it really makes you wonder why they didnt just reuse Bogdan?

 

he already used a sub and had unfinished business from before... They cvould have given him the same story and lines to use as well instead of introducing another new character

Usually the dull answer is that the VO talent wasn't available, this was made during lockdown don't forget, or they were just working elsewhere.

Apart from real-world logistical reasons, it also wouldn't make sense in the game. The whole second act of the Doomsday Heist is based on the false idea that Bogdan is the bad guy. That wouldn't work if our char already worked with him beforehand, as newer players would be perfectly able to do, if Bogdan was Pavel.
