Grigori Rasputin is an advanced explorer suitable for outlaw strategies. Though he starts out with no companions, his Preacher perk allows him to gain natives quickly and easily. Since his ability makes him immune to the normal Standing recruiting requirements in villages, he can loot shrines and hunt without impacting his ability to recruit. His bonus Healer perk regenerates the health of all party members when wounded, which is priceless with a combat party.

Historical Context Edit
Grigori Rasputin (January 21, 1869 – December 30, 1916) was a Russian mystic and self-proclaimed holy man who befriended the family of Tsar Nicholas II, the last monarch of Russia, and gained considerable influence in late imperial Russia.
He acted as a healer for the Tsar and his wife Alexandra's only son Alexei, who suffered from hemophilia. He was a divisive figure in court, seen by some as a mystic visionary, but seen by others as a religious charlatan. As Russian defeats in war mounted, Rasputin became increasingly unpopular, and he was eventually assassinated by conservative noblemen who opposed his influence over Alexandra and the Tsar.
- Grigori Rasputin is the most recent character to be introduced to the game. He was debuted November 26 of 2018, coinciding with the release of the Russian version of The Curious Expedition.
