Solemnus’ family escaped the Soviet Union with little more than their lives when he was in his teens. Known then as Rurik Ostrovsky, he was an incredible example of physical conditioning. During the family’s flight from KGB agents Rurik’s father was shot in the back, the bullet lodging itself in the base of his spine – his legs were useless. Rurik threw his father and his frantic mother over his shoulders, kicked in the ribcage of the enclosing agent, and made a standing leap onto the rooftops.
Rurik ran from building to building, quickly eluding the remaining KGB agents. He managed to find medical attention for his father, but the man would never walk again. Having thrown the KGB off their trail, the Ostrovsky family took a small sailboat and worked their way to France where they were able to receive safe passage to the United States.
