A retired officer Yakovlev fights as a duelist representative, standing out for other people in duels upon prior agreement. (The Russian dueling code allowed for such practice.) Though Yakovlev fights for money, he sees his honor as the most important thing in life. His past is painful. He was publicly disgraced and was close to facing a shameful death, but survived. He returns to St. Petersburg after a long exile to seek out honor and revenge against those responsible for his misfortunes.
