Also known as "Bloody Pierce", Natasha Radinov, a Ukrainian by nationality, was originally an agent for the K.G.B. and Spetsnaz, but when the Soviet Union fell, she contracted her services out as a freelance assassin. She is proficient in almost every deadly hand weapon in the world, but prefers to work with silent weapons, especially a World War II-era British Welrod suppressed pistol and a ballistic knife specifically designed for use by Spetsnaz. She also wears a long coat lined with ballistic nylon and Kevlar, the inside lining holding a vast arsenal of weapons.
Radinov prefers to be paid for her services in heroin, which she sells in Russia; she personally stays away from the drug herself. Recently, she had accepted an assignment to kill Rally and May because the two had interfered in a gun-running operation run by Edward Haints, an Illinois assemblyman running for mayor under a gun-control platform, as well as Haints' partner George Black and Jonathan Washington. However, when the first attempt on Rally's life went wrong, and Radinov was injured because of it, she took it as "a matter of pride" and went after Rally personally. After a violent chase within the Field Museum near Grant Park (which was closed due to renovations), Radinov is shot and killed by Rally thanks to several shots to the chest at close range due to an opening in Radinov's bulletproof coat.
