United Soviette Republics before its fall in 1991. Felix was also responsible for onlooking the construction and test runs of a experimental nuclear-armed soviette submarine class. However, the USR collapsed, he and his subordinates fleed into the prototype submarine, SNS Trogotha, and secretly escaped the Atonix Ocean. For the next twenty years, SNS Trogotha sailed underwater to avoid detection by the Corporatocracy of Harbitros. To keep himself and the crew fed and sanitary, the Soviette submarine stopped for supplies at various remote, criminally-run black harbours. This eventually led to the Primondian crimelord Lester Bastos to make contact with Felix. The former invited the latter to join him in creating a more powerful Soviette cell. Felix happily agreed and brought his crew and his nuclear-armed submarine to the other members of Des Maines Inconnues.
