The Tower (Later)
After the outbreak, and the rise of Rais, Alexei and his son came under the "protection" of Rais's influence. Under fear, they made weaponry for them. There is a side quest which involves Alexei's son, who has run off to join Brecken's group at The Tower, thinking he could be a Runner. Alexei is worried, stating that Kristov "thinks with his mouth, not his head." This prompts Kyle Crane to move to Kristov's current location, filled with infected. After convincing Kristov to not become a Runner, in consideration of his safety and his father's safety, he and Crane are attacked by Rais's men, who state that they have all the weapons they need and no longer need Alexei and Kristov. After the soldiers are defeated, Alexei decides to evacuate to the tower with his son for safety. They can be found residing in the lobby soon after arriving.
