Ian is the shortest member of the Blitzkrieg Boys. He has a long nose and wears goggles that are quite a bit bigger than his face.
When the Bladebreakers return to Balkov Abbey to find Kai, Ian and Tala stop them from entering. Ian also has a battle with Tyson to distract them, which he eventually forfeits..
Ian disappears when the rest of his team formed the Blitzkrieg Boys.
In the manga, it is shown that he had battled Kai for the last position, but lost and returned to Russia.
In the Japanese exclusive ending, he is seen with the rest of the Blitzkrieg Boys, having rejoined the team.
Ian has the blade Wyborg given to him by Boris Balkov. It is a purple normal based blade that seems to be based on defence just like Max's Draciel. His Bit-Beast is Wyborg, a Serpent-like bit-beast, seemingly with a ground affinity. It appears to be based on a cobra.
