Chernushka is a dog that was launched into space by the original Soviet Union, he survived the expedition and returned to Earth and hailed as hero by the human race. He became a multimillionaire and was able to preserve himself due to being able to afford cybernetic surgeries. He is now a cyborg canine that is the leader of an organized crime syndicate.
Chernushka was a regular dog born back on Earth. He was utilized by the 1st Soviet Union in the first attempts to explore space as test dummy. He returned from his mission into orbit successfully and was given the highest honors in the Soviet Union. He was given trillions of dollars, which he used to make a deal with a mad scientist to run experiments of immortality on his little dog body. The results were him being presumed stuffed and put on display in a Russian museum until an associate at the Mad scientist's company stole the artifact and revived Chernushka.
Chernushka was given cyborg properties in order to keep him alive. He then launched into space with the new technology, he had piloted the first space craft and was well-versed in the laws of aviation. He managed to reach a segment of unknown space where he disappeared for many years. He is presumed to have taken up the work of bounty hunting during this time period, but none can really say for sure.
He was discovered by the 2nd Soviet Union, who then employed him as a Space Pioneer. Chernushka then went on to discover New Ukraine and New Crimea for the wayward government. The sentient canine then collected his reward and then vanished, almost as well as he did before. His absence was again ended when he bought a casino resort on Dalmatia, where he was then connected to an organized crime syndicate. His casino head quarters is called the 'You Lucky Dog Casino & Resort Suite.'
Many Dalmatian Men see Chernushka as an abominable coalition of living flesh and technology foretold in their ancient folklore. The rest have not heard of him yet.
