The Advances of Mankind PreRP

KGB isn't just sabotage. And sabotage is quite good at killing SF. I mean, really. However, I see your issue.
Bumped his age up to 42. He's got the skill set of both special forces and KGB, but he lacks the reaction speed and other advantages of youth. I think that's balanced.

Also, going AWOL is a no-no, he'd be executed for it.

True, but only if the know he's still alive.

Also, I wasn't sure which side Russia would be on. Because that would change things.
Okay, here's some explanation on my problems with your character in it's current form. I'll try to make this decent. (And Russia would be ASP, "Workers Socialist Party=Communist).

I'll ignore the going AWOL=traitor for now.

Okay, so, let's take a guy, we'll name him Bob. Bob goes through hell and back to get into the CIA, and is accepted as a secret agent. Having a midlife crisis, Bob decides to join the Navy SEALS. Sound realistic? Not really. Also, I'm trying to keep a balance here. If you're an excellent agent AND an excellent fighter, it sounds like nobody can touch you. The fact that you said your guy could alone take on 10 elite soldiers specially trained to kill him shows me that you want your guy to be rather OP.

If you are OP, and nobody else it, you'll wipe the floor with them with ease and ruin the fun for them. You you're all allowed to be OP, this RP becomes SS 2.0. I DO NOT want this to be SS 2.0. Understand why I want him nerfed, just a little bit? I want this RP's fighting to involve strategy, wit, and quick thinking. If you're a Navy SEAL/CIA/God knows what else, that compromises the fighting. Anyways, there you have it.
Alright, thank you. I'm going to do a bit of editing on his char sheet. (the one one the previous page and in my head)

I want Stefan to be a jack-of-all-trades so he'll have a wide selection of capabilities, but will be a master at none.
Thanks for listening. The jack of all trades is fine, as long as he's not as good as more specialized people at their subject.
No problem.

I've made the edits, so yeah. Let me know...
Sounds like an interesting concept. I'll get a sheet up tonight, if all goes well.

If you're an excellent agent AND an excellent fighter

No offence but Excellent Agent kinda means you HAVE to be an excellent fighter ... OK maybe not Spetznas and SEAL level but an agent is gonna be a betch to kill in a hand to hand or gun fight unless you catch him/her off guard in a public place and blow said agent's head in half. that is just my opinion on the subject ... Shutting up now ...

Char sheet ... will be up maybe mid-end of the week ... at the latest ...
I am sorry everyone, but I do believe I will be cancelling this.

Why? Because, I got a much, much better idea for an RP.....

Starcraft Political perhaps?
A political RP could be a lot of fun, but it needs to include military action, smarmy self-centered politicians !@#$ing things up, assassination attempts, etc.
Not going to join anymore political RPs ....
CR what happend to your RP???????
May join your new RP Dacder
No, no. Not "Starcraft Political".

SCP stands for "Secure, Contain, Protect"....look up "The SCP foundation." It's going to be a true horror RP.
